Fragrant essences lift the spirits, stimulate the senses, and enhance relaxation after a trying day. This practical guide shows how essential oils -- used in the home and on the go -- can greatly improve the quality of busy lives.

Comprehensive information on the essential oils extracted from herbs, flowers, roots, barks, and resins includes which ones to use regularly, which to use with caution, and which to avoid altogether.

Dozens of simple step-by-step recipes feature essential oils for:

  • Combatting stress, PMS, sunburn, and other conditions
  • Scenting homes, offices, and vehicles
  • Creating blends for safe, fragrant cleaning products
  • Making special mixtures for children and the elderly
