Generally the book is adequate and I have seen little that would actually cause problems, however the basic lack of understanding gives me cause for concern and as a result I would not recommend this book.
BUT...this book is just perfect. It's got all the information you could possibly want for home use and it is beautifully illustrated with everything from pictures of the plants and oils to how to give yourself and others a massage. There are facinating chapters on the history of Aromatherapy, home remedies, massage, the plants and oils, and loads more. The book covers 65 of the most popular and widely available oils. All nicely illustrated and described with added information such as safety data, aromatherapy use, extraction etc. I purchased this book along with it's accompanying guide "The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Essential Oils", also by Julia Lawless, which is equally as good as this one. But, if you only wanted to buy one book for general home use then I recommend this one. You can't go wrong with this book. It's a great read and it's very well laid out for quick reference use. Definately a very valued addition to my book shelf.
