As I have mentioned previously, I would like to promote good books on this page and I thought that I should update you on some exciting news from one of my favourite aromatherapists/authors/people, Dr Jennifer Rhind! She has recently published a second edition of her book Essential Oils: A Handbook for Aromatherapy Practice, available through the Jessica Kingsley Publisher website. Her first book is the very first one I go to when I have a query about an oil as it is fully referenced and completely reliable. Instead of re-hashing the same old stuff, she goes beyond and looks for the evidence! It is very well written, and very easy to read. I would highly recommend it to any aromatherapist or aromatherapy student.
What people think:
‘Finally we have the “missing-link” text to facilitate the journey into the world of aromatherapy practice! This excellent book is well researched, detailed, up to date, relevant and completely accessible to student and qualified aromatherapists alike’ – Rhiannon Harris, Editor, International Journal of Clinical Aromatherapy
“This book is a breath of fresh air in written form” – Robert Tisserand, aromatherapy author, educator and consultant

“To read is to fly: it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view over wide terrains of history, human variety, ideas, shared experience and the fruits of many inquiries”
