    This book is great! Not only does she provide and excellent source of information for beginners, but she also conveys her passion for aromatherapy through her writings,and her total faith in the use of essential oils for healing the body, and the soul. Deals alot with issues for women and children. She also provides a long list of companies that sell quality oils,and even schools in the U.S. and U.K. where you can receive education in the field. Overall her passion for the oils and knowledge of their uses can give alot of confidence to the beginner. I do have one caution though,because she lives in the U.K., some of the words she uses for different maladies are different from the ones used in the U.S. So if you don’t know what it is she’s talking about, make sure you ask or look it up.

      I have been studying Aromatherapy for about two years now and this is one of my favorites. It reads well from cover to cover, but is also easy to use as a reference. There aren’t many recipes per se, but there are multitudes of uses outlined. Tisserand utilises essential oils that are generally very safe, which is why I recommend this book for beginners. I am also very comfortable with the ratios of essential oil to base, and the safety recommendations she makes. If you are interested in Aromatherapy, this would be a good book to start your collection.

        This book should be a staple to any aromatherapy library. I always refer to this book first whenever there is problem. I also give this book to my sisters and friends when they get pregnant. It is a great starter reference that helps from early pregnancy through high school and beyond. I started using this book when I was single, and I have actually used some of the various blends on my pets. Basically, if you are a woman, know a woman, know children, know animals, or are even a cloistered monk, this book is a great start.

          This was one of my very first aromatherapy books, because it is relatively inexpensive, and likewise relatively small and non-threatening. It has more the feel of a friendly guide than some obscure textbook. I still use it on a very regular basis, even though I’ve also added a number of more advanced books to my repertoire.

          It is, on the whole, indeed very useful for women (and can be for men as well, of course!) It covers a wide range of women’s-interest subjects, from home and body care, to pregnancy and infants ailments. The information for men is not as prevalent (as indicated in the title, of course) but many things that apply to women apply to men as well.

          Most of the information is very thorough, but it can sometimes be hard to get to the ‘meat’ of what you are looking for. It is written in a very ‘friendly’, anecdotal style, which although easier reading than more ‘technical’ books, can make it difficult to find the key things you are looking for. The recommended essential oils are always in bold text, however, so that does at least partially negate this problem.

          Another issue I had with it was the fact that some of the subjects she speaks about, there is NO essential oil information at all. This would not trouble me nearly as much, except for the fact that part of the title of the book is ‘Guide to Essential Oils’. It is still good information, but if there is no essential oil information, I don’t feel it belongs in an essential oil guide.

          Despite these problems, however, I would definitely recommend it for any aromatherapy/essential oil library.

            Aromatherapy for women is an excellent source for the use of essential oils whether you are a beginner or seasoned user. The application approach is to everyday life and health situations from aching legs to whooping cough. It lists the exact recipes for safe and effective results. It has a good index for quick reference with glossary and source information.
