The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy.

New Book Offers over 800 Natural, Nontoxic, and Fragrant Recipes to Create Health, Beauty, and Safe Home and Work Environments

2016; Paperback/eBook; 704 pp; $26.95

When New World Library first published Valerie Ann Worwood's book 25 years ago, its subject matter was new. Over the years, the book has become the trusted, tested, last word in its field, as aromatherapy has been accepted in medical and mental health care, as well as home and workplace environments.

In the revised, expanded, and updated 25th anniversary edition of The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy: Over 800 Natural, Nontoxic, and Fragrant Recipes to Create Health, Beauty, and Safe Home and Work Environments (New World Library, November 2016), Worwood's clear and positive voice provides readers the tools they need to create health, beauty, and safe environments in a way that offers natural, nontoxic comfort and care.

The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy gives comprehensive, accurate, and accessible guidance to the professional and home practitioner so they can use essential oils for the following:

* Provide self-defense against bacterial and viral infections with a basic kit and kits for travel;

* Supplement medical care for major health concerns such as cancer, respiratory disorders, heart issues, and more;

* Help with emotional issues like stress, anxiety, depression, and more;

* Transform work environments and soothe work-related side effects like repetitive use injuries, burnout, and eye strain from screen time;

* Help women with PMS, pregnancy, menopause, osteoporosis, and more;

* Offer nontoxic support and care to men, children, and seniors;

* Clean and refresh the home with nontoxic disinfectants and cleaning agents.

"The huge volume of scientific research carried out all over the world today into the healing properties of essential oils is a revival of work carried out in Europe in the 1880s," writes Worwood. "This research has confirmed centuries of experience of using the plants from which essential oils are derived."
