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

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

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.
