“Every drop of essential oil contains a pharmacy.” — Danielle Sade
The Aromatherapy Beauty Guide: Using the Science of Carrier and Essential Oils to Create Natural Personal Care Products is a comprehensive guide to understanding the science behind creating skincare products. It’s important to be careful with essential oils and not to use too much if you are taking the DIY route, and this book is a great guide for going about this process intelligently.
