I would like to share with you my inspiration behind the aromatree. It has been an idea that I have had for over 30 years when I first began teaching aromatherapy and has over time evolved to reflect the complexity and diversity of aromatherapy.

It is not a new idea. I have drawn on many concepts to create the aromatree. I find it a very useful tool to make sense of the complexity of aromatherapy. As an aromatherapy educator, I often notice how frustrated people become when they have to learn the individual properties and actions of essential oils. I noticed that there were many relationships that excited between the individual essential oils and different parts of the plant such as the leaves, roots, resin, wood, fruits, seed or flowers.

The contents of Aromatree are as follows:

  1. What is aromatherapy?
  2. The language of plants
  3. Understanding the aromatree
  4. The aromatree (This chapter is the heart and soul of the book. It has a detailed section for each part of the aromatree – roots and rhizomes, wood, resin, fruit, seeds, leaves and flowers). In each part of the aromatree we examine the patterns and relationships that exist in relation to the following: essential oils, plant families, aroma, botany, mythology and symbolism, other uses, chemistry, properties, body, mind, personality, energetics, subtle, skincare, blending and safety.
  5. Some challenging essential oils
  6. How to use essential oils

Appendices include:

  • Appendix 1: List of essential oils
  • Appendix 2: Glossary
  • Appendix 3: Essential oil chemistry
  • Appendix 4: Properties of essential oils
  • Appendix 5: Summary of cautions and contraindications
  • Appendix 6: Aromatherapy therapeutic index

I do sincerely hope that you enjoy reading the Aromatree.

    I’m sorry you weren’t able to incorporate a Masterclass with your Aromatree Book Launch in Adelaide. I hope you will consider conducting an Aromatree Masterclass in Adelaide, for your past correspondence (ICHA) students, who would like to attend a class conducted by ‘The Master’ in person.
    In the meantime I look forward to buying your book at your lovely Adelaide Store.

    Dear Mr. Bataglia!
    I am CA from Croatia and for a long time your great admirer! I was very impatient during the waiting period of Aromatree book release for the international market, and can’t wait for my copy of the Aromatree book to arrive. Judging by the description you have provided for us I am sure the Aromatree would be a real chest treasure for all of us! Thank you for that! Hope we’ll meet someday in person- until then, wish you all the best!
