Egyptian hieroglyphs, Chinese scrolls, and Ayurvedic literature record physicians administering aromatic oils to their patients.

Today society looks to science to document health choices and the oils do not disappoint.

The growing body of evidence of their efficacy for more than just scenting a room underscores the need for production standards, quality control parameters for raw materials and finished products, and well-defined Good Manufacturing Practices.

Edited by two renowned experts, this handbook covers all aspects of essential oils from chemistry, pharmacology, and biological activity, to production and trade, to uses and regulation.

The book: --- Covers the chemical diversity in essential oils and the techniques used to analyze them --- Explores the biotransformations of essential oil constituents --- Discusses the use of essential oils in perfumery, cosmetics, feed, food, beverages, and pharmaceutical industries --- Includes a rare compilation of information on applications of essential oils as feed additives and for treating disease in pets and farm animals --- Contains coverage of up-to-date regulations and legislative procedures.  Read more...
