Our Review of Healing Civilizations by Nadim Shaath, PhD
This is probably the most beautiful aromatherapy book I've ever come across. It's oversized, perfect as a conversational display piece on the coffee table, and filled with beautiful photography and rich, vibrant colors. Historical and modern uses of aromatic plants are covered in detail, but the main star of this book is the collection of essential oil profiles. Each one includes a plethora of information, including a sample GC and MS report, identifying characteristics, safety data and storage recommendations, along with historical uses of the essential oil. It's a stunning book. A beautiful gift for your aromatherapy loving friends!
