Description:

Aromatherapy is the fastest growing form of complementary therapy in the UK and USA, and is rapidly being employed by nurses and other health care professionals in the hospital, hospice and community settings. Written by a nurse for nurses, this well referenced book highlights how clinical aromatherapy can enhance nursing care and the role of a nurse. It discusses the implications of essential oils becoming prescribed items, and covers pharmacokinetics and the use of essential oils with orthodox medications. The book explains the difference between different types of aromatherapy and shows how this complementary therapy could become part of a nursing diagnosis or be seen to be part of nursing theory.
