Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fragrant essences lift the spirits, stimulate the senses, and enhance relaxation after a trying day. This practical guide shows how essential oils — used in the home and on the go — can greatly improve the quality of busy lives.

Comprehensive information on the essential oils extracted from herbs, flowers, roots, barks, and resins includes which ones to use regularly, which to use with caution, and which to avoid altogether.

Dozens of simple step-by-step recipes feature essential oils for:

* Combating stress, PMS, sunburn, and other conditions

* Scenting homes, offices, and vehicles

* Creating blends for safe, fragrant cleaning products

* Making special mixtures for children and the elderly

Synopsis:

Aromatic essential oils have many uses. Soothing or invigorating, oils can be used in air fresheners, home-cleaning products, bath soaks, and, of course, perfumes. Complete instructions show readers how to use essential oils safely and effectively.

A rich resource on the applications of aromatherapy and its uses in everyday life, including aromas for the home, business environments, and essences for the elderly.
