This book contains a foreword by Robert Tisserand and Angela Avis, Respectively, Aromatherapist and Senior Lecturer, School of Health Care, Oxford Brookes University. "We accurately extrapolate from scientific studies meaningful hypotheses that can be used to develop a host of effective treatment strategies for common dermatological conditions. Through the course of our work, we have encountered individuals seeking relief from the symptoms of many skin disorders and aroma dermatology is as much about offering an integrated, complementary approach, as it is about providing alternatives in cases where mainstream approaches have little to offer." - Janetta Bensouilah and Philippa Buck, in the preface. 'With the growing interest in aromatherapy, it is important that therapists and healthcare professionals are able to offer a valid rationale when integrating essential oils into clinical care. Sound knowledge of bio-chemical principles and the ability to critically appraise and apply relevant research are fundamental requirements. This book offers a comprehensive, in-depth view of current knowledge. The authors have skilfully woven research and clinical application.A range of therapeutic possibilities is explored and offers practitioners alternative approaches to the management of skin conditions. These include detailed discussions on different methods of application. I hope that this book will become a standard text on both pre-qualifying and CPD courses in aromatherapy.' - Angela Avis, in her foreword.
