4.0 out of 5 stars At last: Citing the evidence 18 Jun 2011
By Lady Fancifull TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Jane Buckle, prior to training as an aromatherapist, was a nurse. Her background in mainstream medicine, and her approach which looks at complementary medicine with that 'where is the evidence' hat on, is to be hugely welcomed. Unlike some other complementary therapies, aromatherapy, using materials which are chemically analysable, and can be tested, like pharmaceuticals in vitro and in vivo, does lend itself to clinical trials. Even though these are never likely to be the large scale standard which characterise pharmaceuticals, not least because (thankfully!) coming from a living organism, the plants have a complex, variable chemistry and cannot therefore be patented. Well, not yet. Not ever, I hope.

Each chapter of Buckle's book comes with around 4 pages of references - and, most usefully, its not just the same old same old reference to other aromatherapy texts, much copying and citing from each other - she gives us the source of specific research papers, where clinical trials were done with specific oils on specific presentations and conditions. What is even more useful, is that Buckle gives some guidance in setting up small trials of the oils, thereby helping practitioners to become confident enough to research and provide further evidence of the therapeutic potency of the oils.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for clinical guide for students 7 April 2012
I relied on this book throughout my degree in Complementary Medicine, and would highly recommend it to any Aromatherapy student who wants to know how and why Aromatherapy really works. It is a guide which I still dip into when I need to refresh my knowledge and was a great aid when writing my university papers.

4.0 out of 5 stars very interesting 13 May 2010
This is a very nice book that I think every aromatherapist should read. It covers not all the disease but prety a lot that aromatherapy could be useful with scientific evidences from clinical research. I Have not given the five start because I think it should be a little bit more depth but is worth it
