Book Reviews

Deby Atterby's book Australian Essential Oil Profiles takes us on a wonderful journey to meet all the people that make Australian essential oils possible, and will definitely be an important addition to every aromatherapy enthusiast and health professional’s library.

 This is a book I believe everyone should read. While the primary audience for Sharon Wood's new book are women, I think The Empowerment Cycle is a must-read for men as well, as it will allow them to better support and nurture their relationships with the women in their lives.

In Aromatherapy and Chakras: Balancing your body’s energy centres for optimal health and wellbeing, I demystify the origins of the chakras. I share with you my personal journey into the chakras and provide you with my interpretation of how we can use chakras to reconnect our body, mind and spirit.

My copy is now held together by lots of cello tape. I purchased my copy in one of those awesome New York bookstores on my first trip to New York in the early 1990s.

While it was originally written back in 1961, I am sure that it is still an invaluable reference for perfumers wishing to use aromatic ingredients of a natural origin such as essential oils and absolutes.

This book without a doubt is the benchmark in understanding the true issues regarding essential oil safety.

I have long been a big fan of Peter Holmes’ writing. I have his original books – The Energetics of Western Herbs (Vol. I and II). 

Ok, you will probably get sick and tired of me telling you this is another one of my all-time favourite aromatherapy books; however, The Fragrant Mind is another all-time favourite of mine!
