Book Review: Aromatherapy for Everyone

Around Christmas time I stopped into the health food store to do a little shopping and stumbled upon this great aromatherapy book called Aromatherapy for Everyone. It is a very descriptive and well laid out book with some basic essential oils and practical applications for them. It also lists off the history of the essential oils as well.

A handy little feature that the book contains is a glossary of common symptoms and the essential oils that can help relieve these symptoms. I was greatly impressed with this feature. So feeling stressed? Well Basil, Bergamot and Cedarwood are a couple of the many oils that can help you relax. One of my favorite ways to apply Essential oils is to put a few drops in the tub, aside from putting some in a carrier oil to use in a massage, bathing is one of the most effective ways to receive aromatherapy treatments.

I personally LOVE this book and it is one of the handiest tools that I have had around the house. I recommend this book to anyone who feels they need a guide to aromatherapy application around their home.
