I really love this book. I’ve been using essential oils for years and I really appreciate the way it was written. Both beginners and those with more experience can gain a lot from reading it. This beautiful book is filled with a bunch of awesome recipes that are easy to make and a joy to use. I also love that the author writes about the “character” of each of the oils used in this book. This is so helpful for those learning to work with essential oils as they really have their own personalities as you get to know them. She covers so much but it’s easy to understand and fun to make the recipes. I’m hopeful for a volume 2 in the future.

Just got my copies of your new book. Awesome! Well done! I’m a Certified Aromatherapist and still found information that was new and useful. I think this is a book that anyone interested in Essential Oils, regardless of their training, will want to have in their library. Great recipes as well as an lovely and very useful look at popular essential oils. I really liked the safety information on each oil. Thank you, Andrea. This book reflects your love of these beautiful healing gifts from Nature. I am giving one copy as a gift to a lucky friend. I highly recommend this book to anyone with even a casual interest in Essential Oils and everything needed to create a useful remedy.

This is an awesome book by a trusted aromatherapist! I value her advice and guidance regarding essential oils! This book gives a great break down on so many areas regarding essential oils. If you use oils, then I highly recommend this book! She discusses the dilution rates and why you should dilute instead of applying neat. The book also talks about the age and stage of the person using oils like children and pregnancy, of the carriers preferred and why, individual essential oils profiles and many amazing recipes to create! The best feature is that the recipes are then broken down into recipes that are appropriate for children! So the guess work is taken out! If a particular oil is unsuitable for children, the recipe will call for an alternative! This will be a staple book within my house and stored right alongside my essential oils so it will always be available to consult!

When I started down the road of Aromatherapy Certification, I selected Andrea Butje’s Aromahead Institute program because of her engaging, heart-centered approach to teaching the ins and outs of Aromatherapy. Truly a joyful experience. So…I wasn’t a bit surprised to get her book and find it filled with “The Heart of Aromatherapy.” And reading the wonderful “personality and job” descriptions of the Oils that are highlighted in her book are true smile makers! She’s written a book that appeals to those of us with training and/or experience in the Aromatherapy world…And for those simply seeking an intelligent, safety conscious guide on some wonderful Oils and blends that include substitute Oils in scaled back blends for kids–It’s an out of the park home run!!

Beautifully written aromatherapy book!!

My new go-to aromatherapy book! I love Andrea’s style of writing in her weekly blog posts and emails, so I had a feeling The Heart of Aromatherapy would be just as wonderful. Andrea provides TONS of super clear information on the oils she profiles (safety info, where the oils come from, different uses, etc.), but also puts a fun twist on the oils by providing a character story for each one. I absolutely love how she does this! It makes it really easy to remember what oils are best to use in different situations. The blends I’ve tried are very easy to follow, and I can’t wait to try the rest. Reading about the essential oil distillers Andrea has worked with and visited really makes you appreciate all the work that goes into producing a little bottle of oil. Andrea’s passion for the aromatherapy world shines through with every single page of this book. Highly recommend The Heart of Aromatherapy!

I am so glad I ordered this book! It’s packed with lots of helpful information about many popular (and some new to me!) essential oils. The information includes uses, blending notes, and safety concerns. Because of Andrea’s training, I know the information in this book is reliable I believe she’s a teacher at heart because she answers the “why” question about each ingredient she recommends in her recipes. It’s so nice to know why beeswax is a good choice, for example. The recipes are amazing. I’m learning so much! Thank you, Andrea Butje!

What a pleasure to read!!

What a pleasure and breath of fresh air this book is! As the title suggests, it’s full of heart and carries so many moving stories about the author (Andrea Butje)’s personal experience in the many years of practicing and teaching Aroamatherapy, and even essential oils profiles are presented in such fun way.

Andrea Butje’s “The Heart of Aromatherapy” is the perfect book for people first exploring the wonder and beauty of essential and for those familiar with the world of essential oils but who may enjoy gaining a new and fresh perspective on some old and trusted friends. I have been using essential oils in my massage practice for over 16 years now, but never before did I feel the personal connection to them that I do now after spending a wonderful weekend curled up with this book. As the oils told their stories they took on a simpler yet more profound personality for me. I found myself re-organizing my oils in a friendlier manner, weeding out the oils that no longer spoke to me, and adding some marvelous new friends. The recipes are wonderful and I appreciate the kid friendly versions that Andrea adds for each one. I started out following recipes but with the confidence and new knowledge given here, I quickly branched out and personalized the recipes for myself, my family and my clients. This book is professional, informative, and delightful.

Andrea Gets to the Heart of Aromatherapy

I’ve just started using aromatherapy, and I first learned of Andrea through a Hay House interview where she discussed the benefits of using essential oils for the body & home. I can tell that she’s passionate about her life’s work and has a special relationship with the scents that she writes about, which makes for a pleasant read. The book also provides a guideline for blending oils at a 1%, 2%, or 3% dilution — as well as suggestions for when to use each dilution. For instance, 2% dilutions are recommended for blends that support emotional health, while a 1% blend is better for people with skin sensitivities. Andrea also addresses phototoxic oils, and how to safely use certain citrus oils on sun-exposed skin (something that I had not considered).
