The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy has been one of the most helpful guides in my line of work. For 20 years, this book has helped me create, understand, and expand my world of Aromatherapy.
Recently, Valerie Ann Worwood released the 25th Anniversary edition of her book, all new and updated. An advanced copy was sent to me for a review to compare the original to the new edition. Out of several tweaks, these changes caught my attention:

  • Each essential oil now has its equivalent Latin name
  • New changes and enhancements to original blends as well as entirely new additions
  • Specific dilutions and safe oils to use for babies and children
  • Overall the book is completely re-written, adding new chapters, charts, tables and material


All these changes and additions provide a wide array of help and aid to all of those involved in the natural therapeutic world, whether a newcomer or a seasoned practitioner. Providing the Latin name helps identify and classify our essential oils, revamped blends as well as new blends add a whole world of possibilities, and the addition of the warnings add a much-needed category to each essential oil that help to provide cautions that may not have been known to many before. At the same time, the book maintains its simplicity that makes it so essential. It is easy for someone new to pick up the book and easily understand and not be over-complicated, while it also serves as a quick reference guide that almost all seasoned veterans can use and rely on. It is easy for anyone to read while still maintaining lots of vital information.

I recommend this book to everyone interested in aromatherapy. It’s easy to read, has helpful tips and tricks, and contains a vast amount of vital information. Whether you’re new to the industry, a seasoned practitioner, or a homeowner with a love for aromatherapy, this book is perfect for you.­­­­­

Top 3 Reference Books for Aromatherapy Professionals

If you are on the way to becoming a professional aromatherapist, you will need resources that offer in-depth scientific information about plants and botanical  extracts. Here are my top three picks:

Aromatherapy for Health Professionals, 4th Edition by Shirley and Len Price

I already have the third edition and I can’t wait to get my hands on the fourth one, which has just released. This book by Shirley Price is a gem for Aromatherapists and all holistic/natural health practitioners who want to learn about aromatherapy at a professional level. What sets it apart from the rest is that every piece of information is backed by research and references so you can be sure of accuracy and reliability. While most aromatherapy books offer recipes, this one teaches you the principles of aromatherapy along with specific guidelines to deal with different conditions. I personally find the language and style very reader-friendly, which is probably why I turn to it for information at least once a day if not more!

Medical Aromatherapy: Healing with Essential Oils by Kurt Schnaubelt

I have had the pleasure of attending an aromatherapy seminar with Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt. His teachings are inspirational and I love the way he debunks some old myths about aromatherapy. Reading his books has renewed my faith in nature’s wisdom and has reassured that my passion for aromatherapy is not only a scientific, but also a “magical” element. For anyone who wants to know the “how” and “why” behind the application of plants and essential oils in healing, this book provides a detailed scientific explanation.Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt is an organic chemist and an eminent researcher in the field of aromatherapy. He has offered invaluable perspectives on the biochemical properties of essential oils and how they work at a cellular level to heal the body. Even though this book is targeted at advanced professionals, just about anyone will find it easy to understand. This one is a must-have on any bookshelf.

Clinical Aromatherapy: Essential Oils in Practice, Second Edition by Jane Buckle

Jane Buckle comes across as a very credible author and I appreciate her generosity in sharing the knowledge garnered over years of research and practice.I would recommend this book for health practitioners and students who want to gain a better scientific understanding of not only why oils work the way they do, but also how and when to use them for specific conditions. Few other books provide a holistic perspective on Aromatherapy like this one. I like the way the author has offered pointers on safety, possible side-effects, usage and dosage while explaining the biochemistry of every recipe. You will also find tons of references to recent research and advancements in the field of aromatherapy, which will equip you to deal with complex health conditions such as infections, Alzheimer’s and even cancer. This one is indeed an all-in-one information pack for aromatherapy professionals who are keen on research or simply want to stay updated.  Other health practitioners who want to enhance patient care with alternative/natural medicine will also find it very valuable.
