    A very good book for beginning aromatherapists

    I've read and reviewed literally dozens of aromatherapy books and this is THE book I recommend. You'll read about the different methods of essential oil manufacturing, the folklore and ethno-botanical uses of aromatherapy, and get good, solid information about blending. If you're looking for a book that takes a slightly more serious look at aromatherapy this is a good start.
