oilsCompletely updated, the best book on the topic available anywhere has just gotten better.
The new edition of The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy contains more than 800 easy-to-follow recipes for essential oil treatments from author Valerie Ann Worwood, a consultant and international expert on the clinical uses of essential oils.

Explore the multitude of benefits of essential oils and aromatherapy. In her clear and positive voice, Worwood provides tools to address a variety of health issues, including specific advice for children, women, men, and seniors. This aromatherapy book also covers:

  • Self-defense against microbes and contaminants–All essential oils are antiseptic to some degree, but try using lavender, oregano, thyme and eucalyptus to protect yourself against a wide range of microbes.
  • Emotional challenges—Stress, anxiety, depression, moodiness, trauma and bereavement all cause emotional changes in our bodies and minds. To level your emotions, try using lavender, chamomile, mandarin and cedarwood oils.
  • Care for the home and workplace—Most of us have no control over our working environment. Some oils that can transform the working environment into a home-like atmosphere include: Lemon, grapefruit, rosemary and cypress.
  • Applications for athletes, dancers, travelers, cooks, gardeners, and animal lovers—The capacity of essential oils to heal wounds and injury is well established, but because they also play a part in preparing the muscles for full exertion, they can help prevent injury, allow the body to recover more quickly, and reduce the effects of fatigue. To help with physical performance, try using ginger, frankincense, and coriander seed.

Worwood also offers us her expertise in the use of essential oils in beauty and spa treatments, plus profiles of 125 essential oils, 37 carrier oils, and more.
