It's a reference book, nothing more. General info in lists.

Although the introductory part (few pages) about the history of essential oils is quite interesting, the rest looks to me like a dry reference book. You will like this book if you like reading Latin names, then the list of chemical components, origin, then the list of properties, then the list of disorders the oil is used for. Lists, lists, lists. The only thing I was interested in was an-inch-sized paragraph on the historical household use.
Bottom line: It is a reference book, nothing more. Don't expect recipes. It not the book to start familiarizing yourself with oils.
