Book Recommendation by Erica Wallace Moore
“The experience that lies at the root of this book, is a synthesis of experience, practical research, and facts gained from original sources,” says author Valerie Ann Worwood.
If your desire is to become an aromatherapy enthusiast, this book is both a practical and extensive guide for beginners. Here is what Worwood says about her book:
The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy offers a thoroughly comprehensive understanding of what essential oils can do in a multitude of ways.
Beginning aromatherapy as a self care practice can feel overwhelming quickly, but Worwood really works to guide you through how practical and easy the use of essential oils can be. Not only does she go in depth to explain the power of essential oils, she also describes their long history in medical practice, and offers how to build several essential self care kits.
For example, Worwood suggests a Basic Care Kit for all beginners that includes these 10 essential oils:
- Thyme Linalol
- Chamomile Roman
- Eucalyptus Radiata
- Tea Tree
In addition to the Basic Care Kit, Wood lays out several more care kits such as:
- The Self Defense Kit
- Occupational Oils for the Working Man and Woman
- Emotional Rescue
- The Basic Travel Kit
- The Gentle Touch for Babies, Children, and Teenagers
- A Woman’s Natural Choice
- The Natural Choice for Men
- Essential Help in the Maturing Years
- Assertive Oils for Sports, Dance, and Exercise
- Major Health Concerns
If you’re a curious beginner of aromatherapy like I am, The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy is an ideal book to begin research with. I hope you’ll join me in learning more about building essential oils into our self care routine.
