How to use essential oils for health, beauty, and well-being
Over the last few decades, essential oils have become increasingly popular. Some people have a regular or occasional aromatherapy massage, and many more also use essential oils in the bath, and in burners, creams, and lotions, and around the home. In this way essential oils provide natural alternatives to chemically based soaps, cleaners, detergents, and air fresheners.
This book for the general reader offers a simple introduction to a wide variety of essential oils, providing all the basic information you need, including how to use the oils effectively and safely. For each essential oil details are provided of the botanical family, method of extraction, fragrance description, and the therapeutic properties (you will find a glossary of terms at the end of the book).The profile of each essential oil also comes with a simple recipe, so you can create your own aromatherapy products using different essential oils and the plants and herbs from which they are extracted.
