Overview

Interest in herbal medicines, aromatherapy, and other traditional applications of aromatic plants has increased tremendously over the last few years. However, very little "hard data" on the properties and uses of these plants has been available until now. This handbook provides the most complete collection of chemical data available on aromatic mints Lamiaceae. The authors introduce the new field of study, aromathematics, which involves aromatic compounds and their biological activities. This book contains a wealth of quantitative data, including more than 500 references on 10,839 chemicals from 251 assays of 205 unique taxa, combined with 3,324 biological activities and 256 recommended daily allowances and lethal doses. An exhaustive guide, the handbook is the ultimate resource for assessing the potential medicinal value of a particular species.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charles N. Shapiro, BA, BSN (Michael Schachter & Assoc)
Description: This book on medicinal mints is divided into two parts. The first part contains listings of nontypical phytochemicals found in each plant. The second part contains the associated biological activity of the aromathematics species and known medicinal activity. The sources for chemical and biological activity are quality scientific references.
Purpose: The data are presented to help the user select the most effective medicinal mint plant for a diagnostic condition with an understanding of the other known chemical constituents of the selected plant.
Audience: The primary audience is the advanced researcher or clinician interested in phytopharmacology and/or activity of specific phytochemical constituents. Homeopaths, herbalists, and phytochemical prescribers will find the book a valuable reference. The authors' educational backgrounds and naturalistic proclivity expertly qualify them to author the book.
Features: The book is one of the first modern high-quality phytochemical works to contain a scientific and whole plant pharmacology approach. Lacking is a quick reference index by diagnostic condition for clinical use.
Assessment: Any other work by the authors on medicinal plant species by family would be a welcome addition to the clinical and research fields.
