For libraries requiring only one book on aromatherapy, this would be a good choice. Clearly written, it gives a detailed history of this ancient healing method, tells how essential oils are extracted and applied, and offers do-it-yourself instructions and warnings of toxicity dangers. Aromatherapeutic plants and oils are described alphabetically. The most practical section is an "A-Z of Ailments," dealing with common medical problems like aging skin or gum diseases. The medical information is sound , and some of the treatment suggestions seem excellent. This book is more comprehensive than Suzanne Fischer-Rizzi's Complete Aromatherapy Handbook ( LJ 7/91 , ) but it, too, is by a European, with no information on where to find oils or practitioners in this country. Needed: a book geared to U.S. readers.
