Books on Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

We have read and reviewed many books and guides on aromatherapy and essential oils. These are some of the best resources we’ve found. All of them have been reviewed personally by herbBee’s site editors and we feel each stands out as providing valuable content. As editors, and users of essential oils, we are very conservative in our approach and our recommendations so you won’t find every book on the topic listed here. As educated users, we also recommend not relying on any one source for your information and instead seeking out information from various trusted sources — this is what herbBee strives to do as well.
