A Brilliant Work of Knowledge and Soul
on February 11, 2000
I loved every page of this book. The author is extremely knowledgeable. The book is artfully done and so varied with valuable formulations, history, sources, and much more. This is unlike the multitudes of aromatherpy books I have read. Included for the reader are the latest researched remedies and formulations from "Herpes Formula" to one of my favorites, "Thigh Flab Lotion". The chapters are interesting, well written and entertaining. This is not only a valuable reference book but also a book that is suited for the beginner and the professional. I especially enjoyed the Natural Perfumery chapter where she includes formulas for the classics. I made Shalimar, by Guerlain and Chloe, by Karl Lagerfeld and they really worked. There is truly something for everyone contained in these pages. She even included a complete and glossary and index. AN EXCELLENT BOOK.
