“But, after all, what are essential oils? What is your relationship with aromatology and aromatherapy? Is it an esoteric, complementary, holistic therapy? Does it have a scientific basis?"
According to the author, Adriana Nunes Wolffenbüttel, “the main objective of this book is to provide this clarification, disseminating technical and scientific knowledge, which is still limited to academic circles, while also addressing holism, helping professionals - aromatherapists, biologists, pharmacists , physiotherapists, doctors, massage therapists, nutritionists, psychologists, chemists, therapists - and patients".
After the first and second editions were released and sold out, we launched this revised and expanded third edition, with the addition of a chapter where the research of the author's doctoral thesis enters. This book makes it possible for professionals or, simply, users of essential oils to acquire technical knowledge and start using, in their everyday and everyday verbalization, terms such as: chemotype, chromatogram, major actives, steam extraction, hydrosol, family and botanical species.
Information, such as that contained in this book, is extremely important to strengthen this area, which, although it already has a lot to offer, is in constant growth, with much still to be discovered.
People fall in love with this area when they know more about the subject, not just about its theory, but when they prove the benefits of essential oils in practice, experiencing them in different ways. This more scientific form is one of them.
This book will help the reader so that he can, from this publication, "walk alone" in the use of essential oils and aromatology. Good scents..”
