Banyen's Description: 

Among the profusion of books on aromatherapy available today, The Encyclopedia of Aromatherapy is the first to explore the many aspects of this multifaceted healing art in a single, up-to-date, highly illustrated volume. The work discusses all things aromatic, from choosing, blending, and storing essential oils to planning the aromatherapeutic garden. The author includes complete profiles of oils safe for home use and practical and inspiring tips for readers to develop their own intuitive senses.

The numerous therapeutic uses of aromatherapy are applied to 10 major body systems with specific remedies given for more than 70 health concerns. Quick reference charts summarize aromatic prescriptions and offer suggestions for supporting herbal remedies and nutritional supplements. The author also provides instructions for creating your own perfumes as well as hair and skin care products.

Colour photos illustrate step-by-step a full body aromatherapy massage and are accompanied by complete instructions for choosing and preparing suitable massage oils. Among many other topics covered are: massaging pregnant women, babies, and the elderly; aromatherapy massage ideas for couples; sports injuries; aromatherapy for pets. Though extremely useful for the beginner, this comprehensive presentation is also an invaluable addition to the library of the more serious student and professional practitioner of aromatherapy.

The Encyclopedia of Aromatherapy offers the most elegantly comprehensive package on the whole art and science of aromatherapy written to date. It deservedly takes its place among the small handful of indispensable reference books on this fascinating therapy.” —Aromatherapy Quarterly
