Basic Aromatherapy is a fun and quality book written by bestselling author Deborah Dolen. Deborah is known for her work in natural product formulation and has also used the pen name "Mabel White."

This short book (approx 33 printed pages) teaches about essential oils and values to those aspiring to be aromatherapists or just those who want to know more about natural chemistry product formulation. The book enhances critical thinking skills when a student goes to purchase typically expensive ingredients. Even the average house wife can benefit from this book if the goal is to make the home environment a more natural environment.

Basic Aromatherapy is not big on “what essential oil or scent does what” because there are many books that cover only that area. This book covers a small amount of “affect,” and is strong peripheral areas, such as “how to clean with essential oils” as well as natural products, how to make gourmet salt blends with essential oils, how to cook with essential oils (very prudently-but it can be done) and most importantly how and where to buy good essential oils. Deborah Dolen travels and purchases essential oils from all over the world. So, she discusses why local commercial essential oils are so diluted, because there are no strict line regulations-and what real essential oils can do. She does comment at minimum consumers should try to buy a few small essential oil samples from a reputable on-line dealer because there is more pressure to sell undiluted and highly quality.

Basic Aromatherapy is filled with fascinating stories and examples about the whole essential oil market, you will never be bored. Deborah Dolen is the Author of the well known books “The Bathroom Chemist” “Natural Soapmaker” “Self Apothecary” “The London Apothecary” and “The Beekeeper’s Digest” to name a few. Most of Deborah Dolen’s books deal with natural product formulation.
