Posted: December 14, 2017 by Cristina Proano-Carrion

Here is a list of the most informative aromatherapy books you need to have in your library. If you want to use essential oils for your personal use, or professionally, I highly recommend theses books to keep next to you for a quick reference. They also make great holiday gifts!


1. Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit: Restoring Emotional and Mental Balance with Essential Oils by Gabriel Mojay

I took Aromatherapy Books: Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirita class with Gabriel Mojay in 2002, bought his book, and ever since, I have been using it as a reference, almost every day! Gabriel Mojay combines his great knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine with Aromatherapy and helps you understand the underlying causes of several physical and mental ailments. Even if you are a stranger to Oriental medicine, you will find it quite reader-friendly owing to the high quality illustrations on massage and acupuncture.






2. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young

I have been a professioAromatherapy Books: Essential Oil Safetynal aromatherapist for 23 years now, and in those 23 years I have read and collected over 40 aromatherapy books. I’ve tended to notice that the one thing common among all these books is that they don’t have a detailed guide about all the effects and interactions of the essential oils. The book accurately describes the hazards and risks associated with essential oils, which helped me understand more the biological and scientific reactions caused by these intricate substances. As a professional therapist, this book has seriously become a must have. The 784-page book is the most comprehensive book on the medical, chemical, and scientific properties of these oils.


3. Aromatherapy for Health Professionals, 4th Edition by Shirley and Len Price

This book byAromatherapy Books: Essential Oil Safety Shirley Price is a gem for Aromatherapists and all holistic/natural health practitioners who want to learn about aromatherapy at a professional level. What sets it apart from the rest is that every piece of information is backed by research and references so you can be sure of accuracy and reliability. I personally find the language and style very reader-friendly, which is probably why I turn to it for information at least once a day if not more!




4. The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood

This Aromatherapy Books: The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapybook has been one of the most helpful guides in my line of work. For 20 years, this book has helped me create, understand, and expand my world of Aromatherapy. I recommend this book to everyone interested in aromatherapy. It’s easy to read, has helpful tips and tricks, and contains a vast amount of vital information. Whether you’re new to the industry, a seasoned practitioner, or a homeowner with a love for aromatherapy, this book is perfect for you.­­­­­




5. Medical Aromatherapy: Healing with Essential Oils by Kurt SchnaubeltAromatherapy Books: Medical Aromatherapy

For anyone who wants to know the “how” and “why” behind the application of plants and essential oils in healing, this book provides a detailed scientific explanation. Even though this book is targeted at advanced professionals, just about anyone will find it easy to understand. This one is a must-have on any bookshelf.
