Aromatherapy is one of the main complementary therapies used in hospital, hospice, and community settings.
Clinical Aromatherapy describes how the controlled use of essential oils can enhance care, and it highlights the role of the healthcare professional. This clinical text further examines key facts and issues in the clinical use of aromatherapy and applies these in a variety of contexts and conditions to ensure a holistic approach to integrative care. The 3rd edition has been thoroughly updated, with new tables in every chapter, more than double the number of references, and several new chapters.
"For decades, Dr. Buckle has been one of the foremost authorities in
Clinical Aromatherapy, and the new edition of her book will be a huge
milestone for our practice. This edition is a treasure trove of
research-based clinical information—it will become an indispensable
reference for aromatherapists."—Barbara Cordell, PhD,RN, AHN-BC, CCAP, Dean of Nursing, Panola College
"In this latest edition,
Dr. Jane Buckle provides a much-needed resource for health professionals
who use or wish to use essential oils in clinical settings. Her wealth
of experience as an aromatherapist lends practical credibility to her
recommendations, while her nursing and research career in the health
care systems of Europe and the U.S. is apparent in both the evidence
base of her recommendations and their scientific rationale. I recommend
this book to all health professionals."—Linda L. Halcon, PhD, MPH, RN, Chair, Population Health and Systems Cooperative Unit, School of Nursing, University of Minnesota
