Dr Joy's Aromatherapy - signed by the author
In this easy-to-read book Dr Joy outlines the way essential oils are used in three over-lapping ways:
The aroma of essential oils impacts on our psyche: the mind-body connection, the emotions and psychological states.
Using essential oils on the body's surfaces, both skin and internal membranes, brings relief: to infections, pain and inflammation.
Taking essential oils internally, intending them to be absorbed into the blood-stream is the most contentious use of essential oils at this stage in the aromatherapy story, with the greatest risk of danger. There is not enough clinical evidence yet to support the use of all essential oils in this way.
Dr Joy skillfully guides you through these three ways of using essential oils, leaving you with a better understanding of how to safely, effectively and playfully use these marvellous gifts from Nature.
