Overview

Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals- / Edition 2

The second edition of this book is virtually a new book. It is the only comprehensive text on the safety of essential oils, the first review of essential oil/drug interactions, and itprovides detailed essential oil constituent data not found in any other text. Much of the existing text has been re-written, and 80% of the text is completely new. There are 400 comprehensive essential oil profiles and almost 4000 references. There are new chapters on the respiratory system, the cardiovascular system, the urinary system, the digestive system and the nervous system.

For each essential oil there is a full breakdown of constituents, and a clear categorization of hazards and risks, with recommended maximum doses and concentrations. There are also 206 Constituent Profiles.

There is considerable discussion of carcinogens, the human relevance of some of the animal data, the validity of treating an essential oil as if it was a single chemical, and the arbitrary nature of uncertainty factors. There is a critique of current regulations.

This book is a "must have" for anyone working with essential oils either professionally or with customers. Robert Tisserand has the ability to explain things in such a way that even the beginner in aromatherapy/essential oils will be able to understand.

Excellent work. Extremely technical, and medically sound. Not for dabblers or folks only interested in aromatherapy. This book can supply great insight for medicinal treatment using oils and applying oils when a patient is already taking other mainstream medications. Very useful for me and I recommend it highly to the right people.

I have been looking for a book like this for learning on my own because I do not know any doctors in my town that know the good in essentail oils and I am a breastfeeding mother and need to make sure the oil I'm taking isn't going to effect my milk supply and my baby brain. I cant afford this whole book but what is in the sample is very helpful.
