    In her highly anticipated book, Working with Unusual Essential Oils, Helen Nagle-Smith gives us an insider's tour of these many new aromatics - each a cornucopia of aromatic facts and fascination. Helen Nagle-Smith succeeds in conveying this through her conversational, convivial style and thorough, expert coverage of these fragrance-rich plants and their volatile extracts. Essential reading for every essential oil enthusiast!
  • Lora Cantele, RA, APCA

    A remarkable body of work! Helen Nagle-Smith shares her journey in how she develops a deep relationship with newer and unusual essential oils to discover their benefits physically and emotionally. Her approach is multi-faceted and encouraging. She provides not only her insights, but suggestions for how the reader might explore these lesser-known essential oils. In the early chapters, she addresses many of the concerns that aromatherapists have about sustainability, research and safety and informs the reader about the complexities of buying and using essential oils.
  • Elizabeth Ashley, Author of The Secret Healer series of aromatherapy manuals and UK Director for the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy

    Helen Nagle-Smith uniquely conveys her understanding of how plant essences speak to as us humans rather than how they simply interface with our bodies. She navigates the crossover between the physical, mental, and emotional bodies remaining neverendingly grounded and practical. Her work never fails to refresh and excite me and is food for my aromajunkie soul.
