"This is not just about skin care. It gets into the chemistry of essential oils and how to blend and why certain ones go together. This book gets in the chemical compounds of many different oils, so you have a better idea of how to use them or substitute another oil with the same constituents or similar components. If you want to know more than just the "smells", this book is a highly valuable addition to your library."

"I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of information packed into this text! And yes, it is a textbook--no glamourous photos of essential oils or products, just the real Art & Science of aromatherapy as they apply to the beauty and spa industries. Thoroughly researched too, so I can trust the info and treatments I share with clients."
