aromatic WRITINGS

I have been contributed many aromatherapy articles to magazines, and published own book in 1997. I am also enthusiastic translating English materials into Japanese.


Essential Oil Safety, 2nd edition by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young

(Elsevier Japan/Fragrance Journal Co.,Ltd, 2018)Translated into Japanese ISBN:9784894793019

Essential Oil Safety 2nd editionThe second edition of this book is virtually a new book. It is the only comprehensive text on the safety of essential oils and the first review of essential oil/drug interactions and provides detailed essential oil constituent data not found in any other text. There are 400 comprehensive essential oil profiles and almost 4000 references. It took more than a year for me to translate this gigantic book of essential oils and it’s constituents.

Aromatherapy for Health ProfessionalsSince the publication of the first edition in 1995, this acclaimed book supervised by British aromatherapy authorities Shirley Price and Len Price has been read all over the world. I wrote a section about aromatherapy in Japan for “Chapter 17: Aromatherapy in the world”, which was added to the 2007 edition.  Prince Charles, who is helping the advancement of holistic medicine in the UK provided the forward for this third edition.

Aromatic Love Story – koi no kaori

(Aiikusha, 1997)ISBN: 9784750000039

Aromatic Love StoryMy first book published in Japan, 1997. This is innovative book which is targeted teenage girls to introduce aromatherapy.

“This Aromatherapy book is refreshing and something different! The author described about aromatherapy basics and then how to use the recopies to aid fulfilling your romance.(…) The book uses the matrix system to put your love interest into four categories such as “leadership-type” and “empathy-type”, then teaches you how to be successful with your romantic endeavour using essential oils. There are 16 romance themed aroma recipes including a recipe for getting noticed by him and a recipe to encourage the conversation.”
