The Worwoods are my go-to people for learning anything about essential oils. They are so down to my level when explaining how and why they work. This book was required for our clinical, and it sure was handy and easy to use.

This is a great book to have if you want to learn about essential oils. This is a comprehensive guide to aromatherapy and the essential oils are organized into alphabetical listings providing their profiles, applications and physical conditions that warrant their uses.
Essential oils have been around for centuries. They have been used for natural remedies to help heal skin conditions, alleviate pain and help relax the body and soothe sore muscles. Essential oils are concentrated plant essences an

wonderful reference. It talks about essential oils and their uses and even has a guide so you can look up an ailment and it will tell you what oils to use and how. You can also look up specific oils and see what it is used for and what blends well with it as well as other iformation about that oil. Also has instructions for self-use.

This is an excellent guide and exactly what I was looking for in all respects except two: it does not discuss "at home extraction" and there are no recipes. I have lavender plants in my yard and would like to make my own lavendar oil. However, I was also particularly interested in natural remedies for skin problems and pain, and this was a wonderful guide!

great begginers guide
Dec 21, 2008 rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
has some good basic info, including general wellness outside of EOs. I particularly liked the formatting of the EO profiles; as well as their 'glossary of therapeutic uses' and their general glossary of EO components (ie-acids, esters, lactones, phenols, etc).

I think this is a good resource/reference for those just becoming interested and intrigued with essential oils, as well as those that are on a journey to greater understanding of EOs and their use/effect.
