Reviews

"Kurt Schnaubelt continues his professional validation of essential oils as serious health care products. Using in-depth but approachable science, Schnaubelt shows how humans and plants have evolved together, supporting and influencing each other's development and well-being over millennia. Each section of this beautifully illustrated book covers a different area of aromatherapy study, from how to recognize authentic oils to recipes for basic health issues and all interspersed with delightful "Essential Oil Journeys" that trace the use of plant essences around the world. Suitable for professional therapists of all kinds while still accessible to the home practitioner, The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils is destined to become a well-thumbed classic in every health library." * Suzanne Catty, author of Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy *
"Particularly unique is the layout of pages and the tidbits of information on the edges highlighting subjects such as toxicity myths, quotes by various contributors to the craft, nods to plant pioneers, and more. Throughout the book Dr. Schnaubelt presents the work of other prominent figures in the profession, explores historical views of essential oils from around the world, and the utilization of essential oils in various cultures." * Mindy Green, MS, AHG, RA, HerbalGram, November 2011 *
"It offers new essential oil treatment opportunities for hepatitis, osteoporosis, liver detoxification, and the prevention of UV damage and melanoma while showing how even home use of essential oils for relaxation or skin care can help build one's immunity and overall well being." * Yoga Magazine, January2012 *
"Kurt Schaubelt takes a rare stand as a chemist and speaks in favor of aromatherapy, using this book to illustrate how essential oils work differently from synthesized pharmaceutical materials." * Diana Rajchel, Facing North April 2012 *
"Schnaubelt's beautiful job of merging science and plant energetics is reflected in [The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils]." * Kathi Keville, American Herb Association, March 2013 *
"Dr. Schnaubelt shows a cutting-edge aromatherapy perspective in this book and gives us many answers to deeply understand the co-evolution of plants and human beings." * Ayako Berg, London School of Aromatherapy, Japan *
"Authoritatively written, this title will easily find an audience among herbalists, massage therapists, home-health advocates, complementary and alternative clinicians, and their patients. Conventional medical practitioners and pharmacists might also find it a worthy, informative read." * Janet Tapper, Library Journal, October 2011 *
