Clinical Aromatherapy: Essential Oils in practice by Jane Buckle.
This book examines and explains ways to enhance patient care with Aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is one of the main complementary therapies used in hospital, hospice, and community settings. Written by a nurse, this clinical text highlights how the controlled use of essential oils can enhance care and the clinical use of aromatherapy and applies these within a variety of contexts and conditions to ensure a holistic approach to integrative care.
Jane Buckle is a qualified Aromatherapist and has a background in critical care nursing. She is trained in massage therapy, clinical aromatherapy, herbal and aromatic medicine and has a Cert Ed.
Dr Buckle brings together those elements most important to practicing clinicians - grounding in the physical sciences, safety information, evidence from the scientific literature and a wealth of personal clinical experience... This work is an important addition to the aromatherapy practice literature, and I strongly recommend it to all health professionals who are interested in this rapidly expanding complementary therapy. - Linda Halc PHD, MPH, RN, Assistant Professor, School of Nursing, University of Minnesota.
