Aromatherapy An A-ZbyPatricia Davis This fabulous encyclopedia is a wonderfully comprehensive compilation of over 200 conditions and 82 essential oils with illustrations, that may help these conditions. There is just so much here to absorb, and I do feel it is a great reference for those who take more of a holistic approach to bodily maintenance. This book felt so complete to me it not only had the complaint I was looking for that was easy to find and understand and especially well defined, but then also had the essential oils that would help me, the amount to use and even the manner to use them in. The International Journal of Aromatherapy called this book on of the most thoroughly researched books on the subject of aromatherapy, and I would whole heatedly agree with them. Patricia even included sections on what oils that could be dangerous for me to take and even had a section with information on where to obtain different types of oils, and step by step recipes to make skin lotions, bath oils and even mouthwash. I would recommend this wonderful desk reference for aromatherapy to anyone who has an interest in the holistic approach and it has definitely earned a respected place in my spiritual toolbox.
