Aromatherapy for Bodyworkers

Yesterday was spent all day at the massage school teaching aromatherapy. It was a full class of really lovely students eager to learn. I find with large classes it becomes more of a challenge to cover all the material and answer their questions.
The new book Aromatherapy for Bodyworkers arrived in the post the day before. Thus, I was able to share the intensive volume with the class. It is by far the best book currently on the market for the bodyworker interested in aromatherapy. I am impressed with the vast amount of material covered from the basics of aromatherapy, blending, how the oils work in the body, integration for bodywork and essential oil data sheets. I absolutely LOVE the flash cards in the back of the book. The book is available at Amazon. If you are in England order it through Pearson Education.

The photograph above is in my studio. A the moment I have 10 and 15ml bottles of essence organized in boxes on a shelf just above my table. This is an "in the meantime" while my perfumers organ gets built.
