Lost Knowledge Returns.

Have you ever wondered where all the information that was acquired by people living on this planet for 1000's of years went? And why we seem so impoverished by our loss? This book was written by a woman who is helping to reclaim our misplaced heritage by teaching us to care for ourselves and others with the essences of the earth. Victoria Edwards has hands on experience with the essential oil palette from the usual to the exotic and reveals many different ways to use and experience the benefits of aromatherapy. A thorough and pracitcal guide to teaching yourself how to respond to the myriad of life's challenges. Excellent!


As the owner of a natural products store which features aromatherapy as a true focal point, I recommend TAC to all customers seeking an introduction to the topic, advanced customers seeking blending ideas and information, and students ready to expand their aromatherapy knowledge base. It is well written, accurate and easy to explore and understand. It is our hottest aromatherapy title.

An excellent "companion" in the world of aromatherapy

I use Victoria's book frequently. It is a diverse compilation of wonderful information for a new or experienced aromatherapist. I have fun every time I pick it up.

A Brilliant Work of Knowledge and Soul

I loved every page of this book. The author is extremely knowledgeable. The book is artfully done and so varied with valuable formulations, history, sources, and much more. This is unlike the multitudes of aromatherpy books I have read. Included for the reader are the latest researched remedies and formulations from "Herpes Formula" to one of my favorites, "Thigh Flab Lotion". The chapters are interesting, well written and entertaining. This is not only a valuable reference book but also a book that is suited for the beginner and the professional. I especially enjoyed the Natural Perfumery chapter where she includes formulas for the classics. I made Shalimar, by Guerlain and Chloe, by Karl Lagerfeld and they really worked. There is truly something for everyone contained in these pages. She even included a complete and glossary and index. AN EXCELLENT BOOK.

Written with Intelligence and verve

I was amazed at the warmth and depth of knowledge this book has. I have read it and enjoyed it a lot and I wanted to share with others this review from England "What a relief it is to read a book written by someone with so much good stuff to say." This is a quote from Robert Tisserand author of "The Art of Aromatherapy" and "Essential Oil Safety a Guide for Health Care Professionals" printed in the International Journal of Aromatherapy vol 9 #3 Tisserand goes on to say The Fifteen chapters include Safety Guidelines, Carrier Oils, Creating Blends, Aromatherapy and Ayurveda and an A-Z section with some 125 essential oils. These, along with the other ten chapters is laid out in a two colour text in a reader friendly fashion, and it is easy to dip into. Masses of useful practical information written with intelligence and verve. I recommend this book to all my friends and students as very helpful and informative.
