I'm going to politely suggest that you do not rely solely on the
aromatherapy books that you have.

Instead, you might want to start with basic textbooks in the
neurosciences. And after that make a search of the US Library of
Congress. If you find a book that you're library does not have, they
might be able to acquire it on loan.

Also search the archives at the National Library of Medicine at the
National Institutes of Health:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Literature/index.html
and when the page loads click on PubMed in the left column
If you find any articles of interest, print the references and bring
them to your reference librarian and ask that she retrieve copies of
the articles.
