In an earlier blog post, I mentioned that I was in the middle of writing an aromatherapy book for publication. As I write this post, editing is almost complete on the book – and it is now available for pre-order on The book is scheduled to be published on January 2, 2014 and is called Authentic Aromatherapy: Essential Oils and Blends for Health, Beauty, and Home.

About Authentic Aromatherapy

Authentic Aromatherapy covers a wide range of introductory topics for the beginner to aromatherapy. It is split into three main sections. Part One covers such topics as:

  • the difference between essential oils and fragrance oils

  • quality of essential oils

  • extraction methods

  • basic chemistry of essential oils

  • the difference between organic and non-organic essential oils

  • home distillation of essential oils.

Part Two covers the various ways you can use essential oils – safely and effectively. These include:

  • beauty and skincare

  • in the home

  • travel

  • health

  • with babies and children

  • for women

  • social events.

Part Three is a guide to forty essential oils, with a detailed profile on each essential oil covered, such as:

  • lemon

  • rose

  • lavender

  • tea tree

  • vetiver

  • sandalwood

  • patchouli

  • pine.

I wrote the book from my background of both my professional training and personal experience and application in my business. Although many of the usual topics are covered, Authentic Aromatherapy also includes tips and advice learned along the way in my move from the UK to the US, especially in understanding what the term aromatherapy means to people.

In addition, one of the aims of the book is to teach you how to put together (and understand how to use) essential oils in home made products, rather than just listing a recipe for the product (many of which circulate on the internet with little or no explanation on how/why the recipe was put together).

I hope that Authentic Aromatherapy introduces you to the many benefits of aromatherapy and essential oils – and helps you to distinguish fact from fiction in a confusing world of myths and misunderstandings about the subject. It is also meant to be a fun learning process – with simple explanations on some of the more complex subject areas of aromatherapy. Who knows – it might even ignite a passion in you to learn more with an aromatherapy course!
