Top 3 Reference Books for Aromatherapy ProfessionalsIf you are on the way to becoming a professional aromatherapist, you will need resources that offer in-depth scientific information about plants and botanical extracts. Here are my top three picks:
Jane Buckle comes across as a very credible author and I appreciate her generosity in sharing the knowledge garnered over years of research and practice.I would recommend this book for health practitioners and students who want to gain a better scientific understanding of not only why oils work the way they do, but also how and when to use them for specific conditions. Few other books provide a holistic perspective on Aromatherapy like this one. I like the way the author has offered pointers on safety, possible side-effects, usage and dosage while explaining the biochemistry of every recipe. You will also find tons of references to recent research and advancements in the field of aromatherapy, which will equip you to deal with complex health conditions such as infections, Alzheimer’s and even cancer. This one is indeed an all-in-one information pack for aromatherapy professionals who are keen on research or simply want to stay updated. Other health practitioners who want to enhance patient care with alternative/natural medicine will also find it very valuable.© 2012, Cristina Proano-Carrion, Aromandina LLC
