The Art of Aromatherapy: The Healing and Beautifying Properties of the Essential Oils of Flowers and Herbs by Robert B. Tisserand.

New Revised Edition, 1994

Healing Arts Press, 1994. Trade Paper, 324 pp.

the Art of Aromatherapy has been a Standard reference work since it was first published in 1977. Robert Tisserand recounts the history and uses of oils in cosmetics and perfumes from ancient Egyptian times to the present day. His comprehensive guide shows how to use essential oils as a gentle, harmless, yet effective method of natural healing.

Twenty-nine essences are described in detail, with a list of their properties and applications. Tables of evaporation rate and odor intensity are provided along with a complete glossary of medical terms and a therapeutic index that lists more than one hundred illnesses and the essential oils used in treating them.

Tisserand details the important uses of essential oils in Swedish, shiatsu, and neuro-muscular massage and discusses the curative and rejuvenating effects of aromatherapy on emotional tension, mental strain, and skin troubles. With its wealth of easy-to-make recipes for massage and medicinal oils, facial masks, ointments, and aromatic baths, The Art of Aromatherapy unlocks the hidden strength of flowers and herbs to restore radiant beauty and health.
