good/cheap beginners book

Post by fey » Wed Jun 20, 2007 9:00 pm

I want to find a dead tree (i.e. paper) format for aroma therapy. Something that would talk about the basics and even give a couple of recipes for making something good.

In my opinion the best book for aromatherapy is the Complete guide to Essential Oils by Valarie Worwood. You can find used copies on Amazon for as low as $7.49

I like Aromatherapy an A to Z by Particia Davis. This was one that was recommended by the aromatherapy instructor in school.
If you have a Half Price Bookstore in your area I would check there in addition to Amazon.

This is a good site for used books. I can get lost for hours on this one.

Aromatherapy - Book Suggestion

Post by dhwmassage » Mon Oct 20, 2008 8:17 pm

I second that Aromatherapy book suggestion.

The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood can be had used for about $9 at amazon.com. My office copy is quite dog eared from use.

I'm not sure I can agree with the Worwood suggestion. I'm curious to know what kind of scientific backing its information has.

Research available here: http://av-at.com/plantaromaticsavnp.html -- a book you need if you plan to be applying essential oils to skin

Look into this book too: http://av-at.com/manual01.html

Blatantly selfserving recommendation...but a book that packs a tremendous amount of information -

"Essential Oils and Aromatics" by Marge Clark :D
Aromatherapy supplies and information
