Would recommend this product.
Whether it’s rosemary oil for stiff muscles or Ylang-Ylang to calm the mind, aromatic oils play a major role in today’s holistic approach to health. They’re used in massage, in aromatherapy, and to create a positive ambience at home and at work. This attractive new addition to the Essential Handbook series is both a reference and a guide to these oils and their life-enhancing properties. The main attraction is a directory of 100 oils, complete with a discussion of the benefits of each for body, mind, and spirit, and suggestions on how it can be used. Gorgeous photographs showcase the plants that yield each oil, and an introductory section describes their traditional applications in different cultures around the world.

I LOVE this book! I am relatively new to using essential oils and this book is very thorough & explains a lot about most oils that I would be using, as well as the differences between carrier oils. Lots of recipes. I especially love her recipe for \'skin mousse\' -- very versatile and you can incorporate different oils into it. The only thing I would change about the book is it\'s size -- it\'s very small and the font can be hard to read since it\'s so little. I wish they made a bigger version of the book so it could be a little easier on the eyes, but the info in the book is great.

i really love this book. It is portable. it is full color. it is a great resource. However i feel it is lacking some key oils, and contains too many obscure ones. Regardless this is a great book to own!
