My daughter and I have been Deborah Dolen fans for years and I am so glad to see her DIY books finally on NOOK! I rushed to get the first copy which is actually her newest book I did not have in hard copy. Aromatherapy Basics by Deborah Dolen is one of her shorter books, but it taught me more about essential oils than ten books put together. Deborah Dolen's writing style us why I love her work. She makes me feel I have wings and can fly!
I do wish to encourage her to offer her books in hard copy again. Its the only downer and I am not going to give her less stars because of that.
This book explores aromatherapy is great detail, in where the first chapter is an introduction the aromatherapy. It is not just opening a bottle and enjoying a scent, there is much more to having a fantastic and relaxing aromatherapy session. The author describes essential materials, and carefully discusses safety and health issues, as well as toxicity. Those sections are very important and I am pleased to see the author be very concerned about how you use the aromatherapy essential oils to make sure no problems occur. THis tells me the author is very knowledgeable and a credible author in this area of relaxation. Besides relaxation, the author also lists uses of essential oils for cleaning, as well as cooking. Therefore, if you are looking for a short but very complete Nookbook about aromatherapy, I would recommend this publication by Deborah Dolen

Finding Deborah Dolen’s DIY books for my NOOK has been so exciting. She is a master at the DIY book and Basic Aromatherapy is no exception. Like her other works Deborah has given the reader a complete knowledge and understanding of essential oils so they can begin enjoying them today. The title says “Basic” but this book is anything but! I would agree with another reviewer, this book gives you as much information as ten books on the topic.
I was pleasantly surprised to see the two chapters that cover safety and toxicity when working with essential oils. We have small children and pets in our home and of course they are into everything. The information she provides ensures that I enjoy the benefits of the oils while knowing everyone is safe. The section on cleaning with the oils is the 1st one I will be using today. I am excited to enjoy the smells and relaxation they will bring.
Like Dolen’s other works the flow and format of this book make it easy to read and understand. She even breaks down the complicated chemistry and language for the layman like me. The author’s extensive knowledge on the subject shines through, as always with Deborah.
If you are looking to REALLY learn to use and enjoy essential oils this is the book for you and I would also recommend that check out her other DIY books.
