375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols
375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols

Jeanne Rose

In 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols, Jeanne Rose supplies brief monographs (summaries) of many essential oils, hydrosols and other naturals used in aromatherapy. Although I haven't counted to ensure the "375" figure is correct, this 245-page book is indeed a useful reference for locating summary information on numerous oils. The essays and information on such topics as botanical names (and how they are derived) add to the interest of this book. Don't, however, rely on this book to be a complete reference book on specific essential oil details or aromatherapy information. For more detailed information on 160 essential oils including color photos, Julia Lawless' work The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils is a winner.
