    This book is just amazing. As an aromatherapist I've been looking for a really informative book on base oils and not really been able to find exactly what I was looking for until this was recommended on a group I'm in. It didn't disappoint. Really happy with the book and would highly recommend fir anyone looking for more information on base oils x
