This is an exceptional new book from the author of the popular Essential Oils For Mindfulness And Meditation. Here she explores the journey of essential oils from living plant to bottle and then how to use them. It is a work of love, hugely detailed but beautifully illustrated with a combination of colour photos of oils and ingredients, line drawings and charts, cleverly structured to make the information she gives both approachable and digestible. Starting with an explanation of what an essential oil is, she then expands that information to take a wider look at the plants and their habitats. From there we learn about methods of extraction, the chemistry and the use of the oils and then the second half of the book provides in-depth profiles of 58 different essential oils. This vibrant reference book will help beginner or practitioner to benefit more from these miracles of nature.
