The Art of Aromatherapy
When Perfumer & Lush Co-Founder Mark Constantine first started looking at creating skincare products, he turned to this book. It would guide him through his earliest concoctions, and proved invaluable when he turned his attention to perfumery.
Robert Tisserand is often called the father of modern aromatherapy, and in this book, he shares his in-depth knowledge of both aromatherapy's history and its many uses, and how these uses have evolved since ancient times. Beginning with the history and use of essential oils in cosmetics and perfumes from ancient Egyptian times to the present day, this book details 29 essences, with their properties and applications in more than 100 conditions, ranging from emotional stress to skin disorders.
Novices and experienced practitioners will find much to learn.
