  • Scented oils have been around for centuries, and the Schillers are strong believers in the benefits of using pure essential oils--diluted in a carrier oil, such as sesame--to relieve stress and a myriad of other disorders (communication enhancement and cellulite reduction among them). As Aroma lamps, which disperse the vapors, become readily available in shops, more people may choose to experiment with aromatherapy in their homes. Other uses for these formulas include adding oils to bathwater, for massage, in body powders made with cornstarch, or in candles. It's interesting to just page through the alphabetical section and learn the purported advantages of oils from allspice (Pimenta officinalis) to ylang-ylang (Cananga odorata).

    A wonderful book with many great ideas my mother bought this book for me when i first became involved in aromatherapy. it has been a wonderful addition to my herbal library, easy to read and use, with some excellent ideas for other uses for essential oils. would recommend this book to anyone starting out in aromatherapy as an inexpensive but worthwhile investment

    Excellent Book for those who are new to aromatherapy.
    This book is excellent for those of us who are new to the concept of aromatherapy. It explains the essential oils, how to blend them, what to blend them with, and what the cautions are of the oils. Many formulas are also given for bath oils, massage oil blends, and even household helpers.
