Every CCI Candidate is required to own a good general aromatherapy reference on the applications and chemistry of essential oils. There are two books we recommend and either of them will suffice to fulfil this requirement.
They are as follows:
REFERENCE GUIDE TO ESSENTIAL OILS (RGEO). (Any Edition okay) by Connie and Alan Higley, Abundant Health Publishing. Coil Bound. ISBN 0-9706583-0-3
ESSENTIAL OILS DESK REFERENCE (EODR) (Any Edition okay) edited by Brian Manwaring, Essential Science Publishing, Hardcover, ISBN 0-943685-39-7
Both of these are definitive references on applied aromatherapy and contain essentially the same material. Each book has some unique information not found in the others, but 70-80% of the material in each of these books overlaps with the other two. You really only need one of them. Suitable for health care professionals and the public at large. Practical info on use of essential oils that anyone can study, understand, and apply. A treasure trove of useful knowledge for personal and family health. Currently available in thier 8th and 3rd editions, respectively. Any edition, however old, of either of these publications will suffice to fulfill the CCI requirement. Both are available through CARE and this website at this time.
