One of the best things that we can do for ourselves is to take responsibility for all aspects of our life – to be both active and pro-active about self-care. I am a strong proponent of aromatherapy and the use of essential oils (says the lady who has a bottle of lavender oil readily available on her desk).

Included in this book are over 100 modern remedies for total wellness, practical self-care advice, and 50 essential oil profiles. What a wonderful start to building a personal foundation for self-care!

You do not have to have any knowledge of essential oils to work with this book. Both beginners and those already on the essential oil path can benefit from this book.

The book is broken down into specific sections: Part One (Aromatherapy ForThe Real World) addresses self-care and aromatherapy, as well as the use of essential oils, while Part Two (Aromatherapy Remedies For Self-Care) addresses emotional, mental, and physical well-being.

At the end of the book there is a reference section, as well as a resource that includes apps, books, videos, and websites, and an inclusive index.

I am impressed with the lovely, “gentle” manner in which this book is put together – the cover done in up-lifting tones, positive colors used throughout, lots of images, good organization, easily read and followed, and a treasure trove of ways to use essential oils. It certainly is going to stay on a shelf that is within easy reach of my desk!
