An Introductory Guide
Essential Oils and Aromatherapy
by Sonoma Press
I was surprised by this book.
I purchased it during this past spring and I have only referred to it a few times. However, it has surpassed my expectations. I tend to prefer books that are a little bit more fun to read and this book is very instructional, I guess that is more needed in the basics.
While it contains many recipes and a lot of information, it is a basic to mid-level book on Aromatherapy.
It would be good for a beginner and as it is titled “an intro”.
However, I must say that in Aromatherapy training it does advise practices that I would not recommend.

I was pleased with the details in the chapter “tools and safe healing”, as well as the chapter “learning the basics”. I do not agree with some of the “mastering the methods” chapter. The good thing about this book is that they have compiled all this information and they provided where it came from in the note section on several of the pages as well in the index. That I found interesting.
This book has more than 300 recipes for you to try that cover many different needs. There is also a section of essential oil descriptions for you to refer to. It is written in a very monotone format, I prefer a more creative format when it is a long read.
Some things in this book I agree with and some I don’t. Remember, as I always say, DO YOUR RESEARCH. I will try some of these recipes and see how I like them. I do think it was worth the price and a good basic training.
