This bibliography was developed during a literature search for materials for a doctoral study of essential oils, and accompanying carrier oils. It contains over 400 resources from international academic and popular media publications, and spans more than 220 years of research. This list of resources covers information from dozens of disciplines and multiple popular folk practices on uses of essential oils from ancient times to the present around the world.

Efforts to develop this bibliography ended in early 2010. It contains publications available at that time.
