Aromatherapy for Natural Health and Beauty is a book written by Cecilia Salvesen originally as a text book for her Alternative Health and Aromatherapy College back in South Africa. Today's version is not only for the experienced aromatherapist but for anyone looking to learn more about essential oils and how to use them. Whether you are a novice looking for the basics or an expert looking to further improve your formulations, this is a book that everyone will need to help themselves, their loved ones or even their clients.

Aromatherapy for Natural Health and Beauty teaches students and therapists what aromatherapy is, the chemical constituents contained in essential oils, the therapeutic properties of carrier oils and how to formulate these to suit conditions ranging from clinical imbalances to fragrance and beauty. The art of massage as taught in the Adult, Pregnancy, Labor, Baby and Child massage sections enables therapists to attend to any client who needs professional aromatherapy treatments, regardless of age.

In the Fragrance and Beauty section, therapists learn how to make products, which include perfumes, bath oils, face and hand creams as well as exfoliators. Oils for cellulite, stretchmarks, scars, wrinkles, blemishes, eczema, athlete’s foot and many other conditions are formulated. The book is informative as well as educational.
