About the Author
About Maggie Tisserand
Maggie was one of the first authors on the subject of aromatherapy when Thorsons (Harper Collins) brought out ‘Aromatherapy for Women’ in 1985. The book has sold in excess of 700,000 copies and Maggie has authored or co-authored four other books on the subject of essential oils.
The Japanese publication of ‘Aromatherapy for Women’ was the stepping stone for Maggie and her Japanese agents to introduce aromatherapy to the Japanese market and Maggie was (in 1989) the first speaker on the subject.
Aromatherapy has been a passion of Maggie’s since the early 1980s and meeting the growers and distillers of aromatic plants, in many parts of the world, has been a joy and an education, with ‘aromatic travel’ generally taking the place of an annual holiday.
In the early part of the 21st Century Maggie came across internet articles on the emerging problems of SARS and MRSA and began investigating the possibility that essential oils might be what was needed to combat serious infections. Maggie's latest book addresses the problem of MRSA and details some well known and lesser known essential oils with antimicrobial properties. Aromantic sell Maggie's Benchmark Thyme Essential Oil
