I am so glad I purchased this book by Julia Lawless so many years ago because now it is so hard to find. I actually have the first edition of The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential oils as well as her THE COMPLETE ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO AROMATHERAPY which, sadly, cannot be found anymore.
THE ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ESSENTIALS OILS has easy to find information. So many essential oil and aromatherapy books are obsessed with recipes for what you can make with essential oils. Lawless provides straight-forward information on the properties of essential oils, their origins, uses, botanical names and more.
Illustrated throughout in full color, this indispensable reference work is a complete A-to-Z compendium of aromatics, with extensive information about the origins, properties, uses, and actions of 165 extensive herbs and essential oils. Over 600 photos & illustrations.
Paperback: 256 pages
