Aromatherapy Books-New & Used
Awaken to Healing Fragrance by Elizabeth Ann Jones
Written for both lay readers and practitioners, Awaken to Healing Fragrance is divided into three parts structured around the past, present, and future of aromatherapy.
The book contains profiles of prominent female historical figures—from Cleopatra to Elizabeth I—known to have used essential oils for mind, body, and spiritual health.
It also explains the value of aromatherapy today: modern methods for using essential oils—from relaxation practices like massage and facials to treating common conditions like PMS, stress, and a sore throat—and describes how and why they work.
Other features include case studies, research on anti-infectious qualities of the oils and a section on psychoneuroimmunology that shows how essential oils can help restore the mind-body-spirit connection and create balance.
Awaken to Healing Fragrance explores the future of essential oil therapy and how it can be integrated into traditional medical systems. Jones discusses energetic medicine, creating aromatic gardens and establishing integrative medicine clinics where doctors trained in Western medicine would collaborate with alternative therapists such as acupuncturists, nutritionists, and aromatherapists to bring a new consciousness and sense of well-being to healthcare.
Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy by Suzanne Catty
The first book devoted exclusively to aromatic hydrosols--gentle, water-based plant extracts that expand the healing, cosmetic, and culinary applications of aromatherapy. This is a comprehensive resource with more than 100 recipes and formulas for using hydrosols as well as sources of supply.
Hydrosols, or hydrolates, are the pure, water-based solutions created when essential oils are steam distilled. Through this process, a potent, yet subtle form of medicine is created, one that is able to be ingested as well as applied directly to the skin, unlike most pure essential oils.
In fact, hydrosols are considered the homeopathic version of aromatherapy, and as such are ideal for use with children, animals, and those with fragile immune systems.
Catty details the specifics of 67 hydrosols, provides formulas to treat more than 50 health concerns, and offers 40 delicious recipes in which hydrosols can be used. Her section on pets will help owners deal with urinary tract and digestive problems as well as grooming and odor issues. She also shows how hydrosols can be used with other forms of vibrational medicine and with feng shui, geomancy, and dowsing.
Dr Bach practised for many years as a Harley Street consultant and bacteriologist but gave up his lucrative practice in 1930 to devote his full time to perfecting this system of healing described in full in his booklet The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies.
Nora Weeks and Victor Bullen worked with Dr Bach and it was to them that the responsibility of his work was bequeathed. In 1964, as a tribute to the doctor's work they published this book to share with others the essence of Nature within the Bach Flower Remedies.

Gold & Steel: As Fierce As Steel by Christopher Walsh
Welcome to the nation of Illiastra, a massive realm where the few thrive and lord over the many. Here, freedom is but a flickering dream of the past, spoken of in whispers by those who know the tales.
However, there are some who speak louder than the rest. Those like Lady Orangecloak, Field Commander of the Thieves, her first lieutenant, Ellarie Dollen and even Lady Marigold Tullivan, a woman born into the very government that rules over Illiastra with an unyielding grasp.
The GOLD & STEEL saga follows those three and other friends and foes alike as Illiastra threatens to tear apart at the seams. It's a world filled with sharp words and even sharper steel where heroes come in the most unexpected forms and from all walks of life.
And it all starts with AS FIERCE AS STEEL
