'All the oils you will ever need for health, vitality and well-being.'
Packed full of information and superb photography, this new addition to the Essential Handbook series will delight your senses and enhance your life with fragrant and mood-lifting oils.
Whether through massage, a hot aromatherapy bath or a cooling compress, essential oils can bring life-enhancing benefits to everyone. In this new book within the Essential Handbook series we learn how to incorporate essential oils into our lives. The first section describes how the oils are extracted from plants, evocatively explains how they have been used traditionally in different cultures, and guides the reader in the best ways to integrate them safely and effectively into his or her daily routine. This is followed by an invaluable directory of 100 oils, each complemented by a full-colour photograph of the plant from which the oil is made. Every entry offers examples of how you can use the oil to benefit both mind and body, whether massaging sore muscles with rosemary oil or adding ylang ylang to a bath to calm your mind. For each oil, key points are highlighted to provide essential information and fascinating facts at a glance. Authoritative yet accessible, this book will delight everyone who wants to use oils to promote their well-being, or who simply takes pleasure in these complex, alluring fragrances.
