Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy is one of the most anticipated books in the world of holistic health because it introduces a revolutionary new use of essential oils in aromatic treatment. Hydrosols, or hydrolates, are the pure, water-based solutions created when essential oils are steam distilled. Through this process, a potent, yet subtle form of medicine is created, one that is able to be ingested as well as applied directly to the skin, unlike most pure essential oils. In fact, hydrosols are considered the homeopathic version of aromatherapy, and as such are ideal for use with children, pregnant women, animals and those with fragile immune systems.

Suzanne Catty details the specifics of 67 hydrosols, provides formulas to treat more than 50 health concerns, and offers 40 delicious recipes in which hydrosols can be used. Her section on pets will help owners deal with urinary tract and digestive problems as well as grooming and odor issues. She also shows how hydrosols can be used with other forms of vibrational medicine and with feng shui, geomancy and dowsing.

The former president of the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists, Suzanne Catty is North America's preeminent researcher and advocate of hydrosols. A professional aromatherapist, she is the founder of Acqua Vita, a company specializing in hydrosols and essential oils. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.

Comments: This book is excellent. It delivered much more information than I expected about the making, use, and storage of hydrosols. I highly recommend it to anyone who uses essential oils as it is a worthy addition to your library.
