Aromatherapy to Heal and Tend the Body by Robert Tisserand

Lotus Press, 1988. Trade paper, 224 pp.

The use of aromatic oils to sooth both physical and psychic disorders was recognized in early Egypt. Only recently has it been rediscovered as a pleasant treatment for a wide range of ailments. The therapeutic properties of the essential oils, together with the relaxation induced by the massage, have been found to relieve many conditions and are particularly helpful for stress-related problems such as pre-menstrual syndrome and insomnia. The oils may be used to treat a range of skin conditions and medicinally in compresses, baths, inhalations and ointments.

Robert Tisserand has provided a fascinating and comprehensive introduction to this increasingly popular for of complementary therapy. He suggests that, even if we consider aromatherapy only as a form of beneficial massage, we must concede that it is an enjoyable way of dealing with the many minor problems associated with the stresses and strains of modern life.
