Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"The research put into the prodution of this book is mind-boggling, making it the most comprehensive collection of facts relating to essential oils ever offered with aromatherapists in mind (earlier ones were very much geared to the perfume industry) and contains much information that is not readily available from other sources. A real 'must' for every aromatherapist's bookshelf" (AROMATHERAPY QUARTERLY)

Présentation de l'éditeur

This is a practical directory of over 80 essential oils, covering many unusual oils as well as those that are in popular use. The oils are extensively categorised, with each entry offering valuable information at a glance. Helpful descriptions are given of the oils' aromas, their chemical constituents and their effects on the mind and body. Fascinating information is also included about the oils' histories, their extraction methods, and the myths and legends associated with them. There is also useful guidance on the effects of essential oils on the skin and their use in blends and treatments.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent tool and reference 31 janvier 2007
Par Chatelaine - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is one of my favorite and most referenced handbooks for essential oils. It is designed for one who knows at least a little about aromatherapy, and plans to be working with the oils. Warning: the drawings on some of the pages may be offensive to some, depicting a witch with an herb popularly used by witches at one time, and people not fully dressed on others. I value the book for it's wealth of information, and ignore some of the illustrations.

Two pages are devoted to each of the essential oils, which are in alphabetical order. Near the title of each oil there is a chart listing the plant/part (plant as in "tree", and part as in "leaves" or "fruit"), Latin name, family, note (top, middle or base), planet, and means of extraction. There are several categories that describe each oil. Aroma describes the kind of fragrance; "features" tell about physical characteristics of the plant, and where it is grown, and such. A section called "History and Myth" tells about how the oil was used historically, and any myths associated with it. The chemical constituents, oil properties, and any precautions are listed. Three sections are devoted to telling how each oil may effect the mind (as in being a sedative), body (as in helping to regulate women's cycles), and skin (as in reactions to say, oily or sensitive skin). The last heading on each page is "blends" which lists other essential oils which blend well with the one under discussion.

There are several helpful resources in the back of the book. A glossary gives a short definition of oil properties, and lists the oils with each property. A blending chart is included, categorizing the oils by what they are (trees, flowers, spices, etc.) and telling what commonly works well together. Another chart lists the oils under which skin types for which they would be most helpful.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best directory for the professional and amateur 9 mars 2000
Par Chrissy - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is definately a must for anyone studying or wants to know more about essential oils. I used this book as a bible during my Diploma of Aromatherapy course, and I still find it a valuable tool for this modality, as it covers everything from where the plant originates from, its chemical properities, effects on the mind, body, skin, blending. I highly recommend this book for any aromatherapy enthusiast. A must on the bookshelf.

I am very happy with this book. It has two pages on each oil describing the aroma, a description of the plant, the history and myths, chemical constituents, uses, precautions, and other oils it blends well with. At the back is a glossary, a blend chart, which catagorizes the types of oils, and a skin type chart. I have found it easy to use, and helpful in my home creations.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a must have for anyone working with essential oils 22 avril 2008
Par Dallas B - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is great! It covers most of the oils any one would use and some you may never have heard of. I really like that it includes the note( top middle base) for each oil as well. This is a must have book that you will use often.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A knock-out of a reference book 13 janvier 2013
Par K. Raudive - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Starting out, you really can't do much better than this reference. It's an alphabetical listing of many oils along with some history and lore, properties, and usage guidelines. It's a fun, pleasant read (if you can handle a directory-style book) and, best of all, is full of elegant, beautiful illustrations that make it worth the purchase price alone. I really love that Sellar doesn't validate more wild claims as being facts, like other books do. She makes cautious suggestions, making it clear when something can't be documented or attributed. My only fault is that the Kindle version is poorly indexed and it's a little bit of a pain to navigate--something that wouldn't be a problem in a print edition.
