What People are Saying About This

"Standard reference work since it was published."

"Robert Tisserand is often called the father of modern aromatherapy, although the art of using essential oils from plants dates back some 5,000 years to the ancient Egyptians. Tisserand brought the practice into modern popularity with his 1977 book, The Art of Aromatherapy."
