A Closer Look at the Book

Aromatherapy with Essential Oil Diffusers is divided into two parts. The first part focuses on the basics of essential oil diffusion and the second part shows you how to use aromatherapy for health and wellness.

In the first section, you’ll learn everything you need to know about diffusing essential oils - the history of aromatherapy, the different types of diffusers (there’s certainly more than one!) and ways to enjoy the aromatic benefits of oils beyond diffusers, and a section on the basics of essential oils.

After learning all the basics in section one, the second part of the book shows you how to put all those methods into practice in your everyday life. The author shows you how to use essential oils for daily health needs and how to enhance your environment with essential oils. While it isn’t a large book, it does cover the basics of aromatic usage very well. For each concern covered, there is a list of recommended essential oils, essential oil blends, diffusion guidelines, and other notes and cautions. 

Review of Aromatherapy with Essential Oil Diffusers

I’m very impressed with this book and glad to have it in my essential oil reference collection. I especially like the section on types of diffusers. While you’ll learn about the basic ultrasonic and other diffusers, there are more ways to enjoy the aroma of essential oils beyond those diffusers, and this book discusses all those choices.

While the reference section is short, it’s well laid out and comprehensive - focusing on using essential oils aromatically with plenty of recommended blends and ways to use them. 

I highly recommend this book for beginning essential oil users - especially those who want to be a bit cautious about topical application. This book focuses on aromatic usage - and there is plenty of that in this book. I find that people often rush to use essential oils topically when aromatic usage is a better idea - and this book shows plenty of ways to enjoy the benefits of essential oils without applying them to your skin.
