Overview

The last two decades have seen a growing interest in natural healing methods. As a result, aromatherapy, once seen as a fringe New Age practice, has become routine and respected and is increasingly recommended to hospital patients as part of their treatment.

Copiously illustrated with full-color photographs, this guide examines the long, respected tradition of aromatherapy, tracing its development from ancient times to its recent revival as part of the holistic health renaissance. The author concentrates on therapeutic and cosmetic applications, showing how aromatic oils are used in the treatment of a variety of common complaints, from stress-related disorders and skin problems to respiratory ailments and children's illnesses.

Sections cover such aspects as home aromatherapy and perfumery, aromatherapy massage, and medical aromatherapy, while a concise illustrated index outlines the uses and qualities of essential oils—from angelica root to ylang ylang. 71/2" x 12". 224 pp.
