The second edition of Handbook of Essential Oils: Science, Technology, and Applications provides a much-needed compilation of information related to the development, use, and marketing of essential oils. It focuses particularly on the chemistry, pharmacology, and biological activities of essential oils, with contributions from a worldwide group of expert authorities on their historical, biological, regulatory, and biotransformation aspects.
Features in the Second Edition:
New chapters on the natural variability of components that often occurs in essential oils and on the natural processes that cause adulteration of essential oils
Revisions, updates, and expansions of previous chapters
Splits a previous chapter on biological activities of essential oils into two separate chapters on biological activities and antioxidative properties
The book covers a wide range of areas applicable to essential oils research, including sources, production, analysis, storage, transport, chemistry, aromatherapy, pharmacology, toxicology, metabolism, technology, biotransformation, application, utilization, and trade. It includes discussions of biological activity testing, results of antimicrobial and antioxidant tests, and penetration-enhancing activities useful in drug delivery.

`This book could well be named "An Encyclopaedia of Essential Oils" since there cannot be anything on the subject that is not covered in this massive tome of more than 1100 pages ...
There are contributions from nearly every country ...
Not only is the overall coverage comprehensive but each chapter also gives a comprehensive coverage of the specific topic.
I feel confident that there will be future editions. This is a book which all those with even the slightest interest in essential oils must possess.'
