5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent source of information.
The updated book is an excellent comprehensive book on carrier oils. It is aimed at complementary therapists and hits that target audience perfectly. It is well referenced and does its job well. I would recommend it for all those that use carrier oil in massage and aromatherapy.

1.0 out of 5 stars wrong item
Please be aware that the book advertised is not what you'll get. If you click at "look inside" then you'll see an older version of 180 pages and that is what you'll get. So it is just a misleading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 18 Dec 2004
This review is from: Carrier Oils: For Aromatherapy and Massage (Paperback)
Very informative - laid out in easy to read way. A book all aromatherapists should have by their side - knowledge in carriers is just as important as the essential oils and this book is just that.

4.0 out of 5 stars An almost-complete guide, 9 Jun 2008
This review is from: Carrier Oils: For Aromatherapy and Massage (Paperback)
A useful reference book - lots of information that's hard to find elsewhere. A handy guide to base oils, a topic neglected by the huge majority of aromatherapy books.

There's some information I'd hope to find that is lacking (is it suitable for children? what percentage of a massage oil should it form?) and a few base oils missing (vitamin E oil, black seed oil, neem oil, emu oil).

Overall though, if you're interested in the subject, a worthwhile addition to your library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise and thorough, 1 Oct 2008

This review is from: Carrier Oils: For Aromatherapy and Massage (Paperback)
This book contains a full description of the most commonly used carrier oils (with some unusual ones too). It also covers natural butters like shea butter and cocoa butter.

Each section covers details of species available, etymology, history, common usage, how/where the plant grows, extraction method, principal constituents (which fatty acids), it gives details of smell, acid levels, vitamin and mineral levels, details of therapeutic use and properties, cosmetic use, culinary use, cautions and further notes.

It also covers basic knowledge of chemistry - and how the different types of essential fatty acids can benefit the skin. It is very important information that all people who work with natural oils will benefit from.

This review is from: Carrier Oils: For Aromatherapy and Massage (Paperback)
I found this book to be an excellent written reference to carrier oils, nice set of references for those wanting more information.

Personally, I could do without the section on recipes, but that's just me! ;-)

This review is from: Carrier Oils: For Aromatherapy and Massage (Paperback)
This is a very useful book for anyone working with carrier oils. There's a wealth of information that has been compiled which we would otherwise have to spend a great deal of time surfing for on the internet. The authors are well experienced in their trade and have presented us with a fine manuscript for easy reference. Cerainly one to have by your right hand!
