This book is for anyone and everyone!!!
By Niccole A. Hatcher
I have ordered this book, and I have yet to put it down!! There are at least 165 essential oils in this book, along with the photos that correspond with the name of the oil/herbs. This book shows a very beautiful illustration of aromatherapy, and it tells you which oils to avoid as well. I would say to any aspiring aromatherapist, or someone who is doing this as a hobby, this is THE book you need to add to your collection.

One of the best books I've found on aromatherapy
When I started researching natural treatments for arthritis and other ailments to incorporate into my massages, I looked at many a book on aromatherapy, ranging in price from $10 to $79. This book is complete and concise - I checked Julia's info on many different oils against other books written by doctors, scientists, etc. costing much more. All was very accurate, and this book even has pictures, traditional folk medicine uses, etc. If you're into aromatherapy, you need this book!

If you're interested in aromatherapy, you need Lawless.
By A Customer
Julia Lawless's Encyclopedia of Essential Oils is rightfully regarded
as one of the primary reference books for anyone who wants to explore
essential oils and their uses in aromatherapy. Beautifully
organized and wonderfully easy to use, it is far and away the most
frequently-consulted volume in my aromatherapy library.
The book includes a concise outline of the history, chemistry and
use of essential oils, although this section is more of a summary/review
than a primer for beginners to the field. The heart of the
book is Lawless's admirably consistent, clear and detailed presentation
of 165 common and uncommon essential oils. In a spacious, well-
organized and convenient lay-out, she gives each plant's common name,
Latin name and synonyms; its description and distribution; related
species; traditional and herbal uses; extraction methods; the
aroma and appearance of the oil; chemical and (sensibly cautious)
safety data as well as its uses in aromatherapy and in the home. All
that's missing are "scratch and sniff" strips!
