About the Author

Kurt Schnaubelt holds a Ph.D. in chemistry and is director of the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy in San Francisco.


"Schnaubelt brings singular authority to this explanation of the reasons why essential oils act on different systems of the body. This is aromatherapy's next generation, based in scientific analysis and structured to produce predictable results. Essential for the serious student."
*NAPRA ReView Vol. 9, No.5*

"Schnaubelt presents sound research to demonstrate how essential oils interact with the different systems of the body."
*Making Scents, Winter 1998-99*

"Schnaubelt clearly and logically illustrates the science of his healing art. . . . Exciting, must have information for anyone going beyond a dab of relaxing lavender on the pillow or peppermint drops in honey water for an upset stomach. . . . An important new reference."
*So Young!*
