I love this book. The pages have stains and are falling out, but I use it for reference daily. The Authors have categorized common conditions from stress relief to aphrodisiacs to calming overactive pets in very easy to follow formulas. Also very common oils to find. I was convinced when I tried these oils the very first time on a condition that went away in a day with essential oils. My family also loves the clean smells mommy uses in the kitchen the laundy and the bath. I highly reccommend this book.

I was looking for a great, easy to use "recipe" book for various aromatherapy mixtures and this book was perfect. It includes massage oils, mists, popourri mixes, invigorating and relaxing mixtures...Highly useful.

Well, not much to say. One of those books I wanted to have as an addition for my natural cosmetics book collection. Unfortunately, this book is indeed only a collection of Aromatherapy formulas. There is very little information to find in the book and that which is in there is very basic and dictatorial. I would not recommend it to anyone who is new to Aromatherapy, as it does not discuss in depth the use and properties of essential oils.

Found it to be a bit basic for my needs; does not give the reasoning behind the recipes. Very step-by-step and dictatorial.

A great resource for aromatherapists or anyone looking for a way to incorporate aromatherapy into their lives.

My mom got me this for Christmas and I like it. Has a bunch of recipes for hair, skin, candles, so many things. I like making my own recipes sometimes but Its nice to have a reference if you want to make a bath oil mix thats relaxing thats not JUST lavender. Its pretty nifty :)
