Aromatherapy begins with a fascinating history of aromatherapy and looks at how worldwide pollution, modern farming methods and the perfume industry are affecting the purity and availability of essential oils. It offers advice on how to find oils of the best possible quality and on how to avoid adulterated or synthetic oils. Then follows an A-Z of plants and their essential oils, giving detailed information on the plant's origins, scientific constituents of the oil, how it is extracted from the plant, and its main therapeutic uses. A second A-Z section lists over 100 common ailments which aromatherapy is known to be effective in treating.
