about this item

This volume consists of 22 chapters on the basic mechanisms and evidence-based clinical use of aromatherapy. Pharmaceutical and other scientists from Europe, Canada, and Japan address the history of essential oils and aromatherapy, with emphasis on bergamot essential oil; the olfactory system; botanical, biotechnological, phytochemical, technological, and quality issues related to the standardization of the natural resource to limit variability of the phytocomplex, including extraction, sample preparation, and analytical methods for quality issues; the cytotoxic and cytoprotective effects of essential oils and the underlying mechanisms dissected in vitro using tumor cell lines, with discussion of cancer therapeutics and antioxidants; the basis for further research and development of aromatherapy in therapeutic areas like infectious and inflammatory diseases and pain; the evidence-based clinical use of aromatherapy for dementia, pediatrics, and infectious diseases; and the epidemiology of essential oil use and the need for pharmacovigilance and phytovigilance for safer use.
