I love books. Always have. Always will. Even with the screen versions of books readily available, I still like to hold paper in my hand. When I want to look something up, I go to a book first. Google and Pinterest are second (sorry Google). I am often asked where to get reliable information about essential oils. I have also seen some books available that I really found to be a waste of money and they won’t make it on this list. Here I’m sharing some of my favourite sources.

Aromatherapy (Teach Yourself)
by Denise Whichello Brown: This aromatherapist has been around for awhile, and has some straightforward formulas for several medical concerns. She covers various treatments for every issue, from orthodox treatment to Bach flower remedies.
Valerie Worwood is another prolific aromatherapy author and I have a few of her books too. I find there is some content overlap between the books, but overall a good resource. For a good example, see link below.
