Review quote

"The research put into the prodution of this book is mind-boggling, making it the most comprehensive collection of facts relating to essential oils ever offered with aromatherapists in mind (earlier ones were very much geared to the perfume industry) and contains much information that is not readily available from other sources. A real 'must' for every aromatherapist's bookshelf" AROMATHERAPY QUARTERLY
