  • historical background
  • aromatherapy practice
  • chemistry of essential oils
  • bioactivity of essential oils
  • science of smell
  • safety issue
  • clinical studies.
The monographs cover commonly used essential oils and their therapeutic uses, details of toxicity, bioactivity, contraindications and clinical studies.

This book provides pharmacists, GPs, nurses and other healthcare professionals with reliable scientifically based information on this growing discipline.
