It is only in recent years that aromatherapy, or essential oil therapy, has gained substantial acceptance; this is primarily due to French veterinarians who have begun using essential oils and hydrosols in their practices. Laypeople, of course, have been enjoying great success treating animals with the very same substances for many years; for it is not just the medical professionals who can safely and effectively administer these aromatic oils. Anyone enabled with quality essential oils or hydrosols and adequate knowledge can use a plant's most concentrated and energetic byproducts to improve the health of their animals, and treat and prevent various illnesses and common ailments. Aromatherapy is actually a science that has a much larger archive of supported scientific data than most other holistic care methods. However, most of these studies were originally published in French or German. Aromatherapy was the first natural, holistic therapy the author began using, and she relies on it as my primary form of healthcare to treat and balance all sorts of minor ailments and discomforts in the lives of her family and their pets. She has rarely needed to use any other sort of remedy to achieve the desired result. These powerful substances are the most fascinating, sensual and complex of all natural therapies -- a combination that proves to be so enthralling it eventually develops into a grand passion for many.

A spellbinding novel from the internationally bestselling author! A Secret Worth Dying For… Jac L’Etoile has always been haunted by visions of the past, her earliest memories infused with the exotic scents that she grew up with as the heir to a storied French perfume company. These worsened after her mother’s suicide until she finally found a doctor who helped her, teaching her to explore the mythological symbolism in her visions and thus lessen their painful impact. This ability led Jac to a wildly successful career as a mythologist, television personality, and author. When her brother, Robbie—who’s taken over the House of L’Etoile from their father—contacts Jac about a remarkable discovery in the family archives, she’s skeptical. But when Robbie goes missing before he can share the secret—leaving a dead body in his wake—Jac is plunged into a world she thought she’d left behind. Traveling back to Paris to investigate Robbie’s disappearance, Jac discovers that the secret is a mysterious scent developed in Cleopatra’s time. Could the rumors swirling be true? Can this ancient perfume hold the power to unlock the ability to remember past lives and conclusively prove reincarnation? If this possession has the power to change the world, then it’s not only worth living for…it’s worth killing for, too. The Book of Lost Fragrances fuses history, passion, and suspense in an intoxicating web that moves from Cleopatra’s Egypt and the terrors of revolutionary France to Tibet’s battle with China and the glamour of modern-day Paris. This marvelous, spellbinding novel mixes the sensory allure of Perfume with the heartbreaking beauty of The Time Traveler’s Wife, coming to life as richly as our most wildly imagined dreams.

While the number of books published on the use of herbs for human healthcare has skyrocketed, information on their use for animals has lagged behind. This is especially true for our larger companion animals such as horses. Two of my former students, Stacey Small and Andrea Baldwin have teamed up to create an Equine Herbal, that gives veterinarians, herbalists, horse owners and trainers the needed knowledge to help prevent and treat the ills common to these amazing animals. I am proud of their effort to bring healing and good health to this neglected area of herbal medicine. David Winston, RH (AHG) Stacey and Andrea have done a great job of putting together a book that will be a mainstay of equine literature for a long time. Thank you both for doing this. Joyce Harman DVM, MRCVS This is the book I have been waiting for. Finally, someone has put all the known information on our favorite herbs in one convenient place. In this comprehensive text you can find the physical action of an herb as well as how it is used in homeopathy, flower essences, and aromatherapy with specifics on use in horses. Most importantly, is the focus on the energetics of herbs. The energy of an herb affects how it interacts in the body and with other herbs. In my opinion, using an herb without understanding its energetic nature is like trying to play a game without a rulebook. Considering the energetics of an herb, like rules in a playbook, facilitates harmony towards a common goal rather than individual forces acting randomly or against each other. Congratulations to the authors for a job well done. Madalyn Ward, DVM and author of Holistic Horsekeeping and Horse Harmony If you want to use nature's medicines to keep your horse healthy, buy this book! Stacey and Andrea have created a much needed reference work complete with herbal safety, methods of use, dosage, and the most importantly the essential energetics of each herb according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. As a doctor of oriental medicine, this is my go-to book for working with my two mares.... a great addition to the library of anyone interested in holistic equine healthcare. Barbara Thurman, DOM, AP, CCT Truly a holistic approach - encouraging the reader to learn and understand the actions and interactions of herbal use with horses. Mary Ann Simonds, MA - Author, Educator, Equine Ecologist Through much of my career as an integrative veterinary medicine practitioner, Stacey Small has been my "go to" for really practical, accurate, understandable information about herbal remedies. Her passion for learning and research, and her talent for education have made her knowledge base something we all want more of! And here it is, in a beautifully written and organized book that everyone can own! Thank you Stacey and Andrea; the horse's thank you! Judith Shoemaker, DVM
