    Pharmacological Aspects of Essential Oils: Current and Future Trends provides a collection of therapeutic and pharmacological applications of the most researched essential oils of great importance derived from Clove, Cinnamon, Coriander, Turmeric, Thymus zygis, Thyme vulgaris, Ocimum basilicum, Copaifera spp, and Nigella sativa species. The new approach towards using a metal phenolic network with the essential oils as a tool of nanomedicine will surely open a new horizon for the research community. Treating disorders such as diabetes, insomnia, and obesity with essential oils will provide a new area of research. Aromatherapy, which is creating a market especially in the personal health care sector, is also discussed in the book. The relation between chemical composition and different biological properties is well discussed in respective chapters. The other practical topics related to the development of this industry of essential oils have been illustrated with elaborative figures and tables.

    Providing such updated data on the pharmacological applications of essential oils is an asset to the community associated with the extraction and production of essential oils, biochemist, aromatherapist, agrotechnologists, and nutritionist fraternities.
