Berkowsky's Synthesis Materia Medica/Spiritualis of Essential Oils consists of 112 chapters, covering 112 different essential oils.
This is a work in progress that Dr. Bruce Berkowsky began work on in 1998. It is the central reference manual for the art of Spiritual PhytoEssencing (the system of soul-level healing work) that he began developing in the mid-1990s.
In addition to essential oils providing benefit on a physical level, they also exert a strong influence upon the psycho-spiritual plane. Dr. Berkowsky designed the art of Spiritual PhytoEssencing (SPE) to help an individual overcome the separation from one's higher self that lies at the core of emotional and physical disharmony.
SPE is a synthesis of certain aspects of aromatherapy, herbal folklore and medicine, doctrine of signatures, classical homeopathy, modern physiology, Kabbalah, anthroposophical science, Chinese medicine, Five Element Theory, the chakra system, depth psychology, gemstone healing and color therapy.
In SPE, the bioenergetic, rather than the chemical, aspect of an essential oil is given greater emphasis. Plants are alive, and everything that lives has a soul. The essential oil is the carrier of the soul of the plant.
Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophical medicine, notes: "Matter is most spiritual in the perfume of the plant...When the spirit most closely approaches the physical earth, then we have the perception of fragrance." An essential oil, the bonding medium for the soul of the plant, is uniquely suited to act as the physical entity that can facilitate an interface between plant and human souls.
Imaginative consciousness is an important element in SPE. In the context of this discussion, the term imaginative consciousness refers to overcoming the limitations of analysis of the material aspects of the oils performed exclusively by the senses and intellect via a complementary perception of the spiritual roots which sustain said material aspects.
While these formative processes are imperceptible, they nevertheless are the source of all the material properties of an essential oil. Every living cell must be animated by a vital force, or "ensouled," and it's this incarnation of higher forces into living tissue that lends each organism its tangible expression. Hence, when using essential oils for psycho-spiritual work, all of the physical features, folkloric and historical associations, etc. of the plant can be used to develop an understanding of its spiritual roots.
The chapters Berkowsky's Synthesis Materia Medica/Spiritualis of Essential Oils range from 20 pages to about 30 + pages long. Thus, this reference book is well over 2000 (8½″ x 11″; size 10 type) pages long.
If you are interested in doing fine quality, deep-acting, psycho-spiritual healing work with essential oils, Berkowsky's Synthesis Materia Medica/Spiritualis Of Essential Oils is the best reference resource available in the world.

Dr. Berkowsky has heard from many people who report that having these chapters on their computers where they can be scrolled through makes researching through this very detailed material much easier and more efficient. In fact, that is precisely the method Dr. Berkowsky personally uses when he is developing essential oil blends.
