"In this latest edition of Aromatherapy for Health Professionals, Dr. Jane Buckle provides a much-needed resource for health professionals who use or wish to use essential oils in clinical settings. Her wealth of experience as an aromatherapist lends practical credibility to her recommendations, while her nursing and research career in the health care systems of Europe and the U.S. is apparent in both the evidence base of her recommendations and their scientific rationale. I recommend this book to all health professionals." ?Linda L. Halcon, PhD, MPH, RN, Chair, Population Health and Systems Cooperative Unit, School of Nursing, University of Minnesota
