Marcel Lavabre's practical guide to the use of essential oils covers the history, folklore, science, and art of aromatherapy, providing the most comprehensive treatment of the subject available today. It features more than 70 essential oils classified by botanical family, with detailed discussions of their specific actions and unique insights into their energetic and spiritual properties.

Lavabre explores the origins and applications of this ancient healing art in classical civilizations, tracing the medical, alchemical, and spiritual development of aromatherapy up to the present. He shows how to use appropriate plant essences for beautifying, cleansing, and healing the body, as well as in massage, aromatic baths, ritual, and spiritual practice.

The various methods of extraction are discussed in detail, and a special section is devoted to the art of blending. Specific formulas are also given for common disorders such as digestive and circulatory ailments, headaches, menstrual and sexual problems, and insomnia.
