The second edition of this book is virtually a new book. It is the only comprehensive text on the safety of essential oils and the first review of essential oil/drug interactions and provides detailed essential oil constituent data not found in any other text. Much of the existing text has been re-written, and 80% of the text is completely new. There are 400 comprehensive essential oil profiles and almost 4000 references. There are new chapters on the respiratory system, the cardivascular system, the urinary system, the digestive system and the nervous system.

For each essential oil there is a full breakdown of constituents, and a clear categorization of hazards and risks, with recommended maximum doses and concentrations. There are also 206 Constituent Profiles.

There is considerable discussion of carcinogens, the human relevance of some of the animal data, the validity of treating an essential oil as if it was a single chemical, and the arbitary nature of uncertainty factors. There is a critque of current regulations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Holy Grail This book is an absolute MUST if you are working with Essential Oils. Its lists dermal limits and safety precautions for hundreds of essential oils. If you are formulating skin/hair care or just diffusing essential oils you NEED this book. Robert Tisserand is a pioneer in his field and very reputable. I couldn't imaging learning about EO's from anyone else. Also, thus book comes highly recommended by many experts and schools in this field.
