This is an amazing book which has a rare quality - it is authoritative, so that the most experienced aromatherapist will find it an indispensible guide; yet it is also very accessible for anyone approaching the subject for the first time.Perhaps someone who is starting out with essential oils and wishing to know which ones to buy first.

The truth is that this is my third copy since it was first published at the end of the last century. The first two have been "borrowed" by others and not returned (the sign of a good book,I suppose, but I'll be a bit more careful this time!! :-)). This truly is my "Bible" of essential oils and their uses and I recommend it highly!

I haven 't finished the book yet but from what I have read it is well worth the purchase! it is well written and researched- at least to a number of other books I have read on the subject and give you all that you need to make well inform decisions about what essentials oils you wish to use. I can't fault it yet.
