The Complete Guide to Essential Oils empowers everyone from doctors, nurses, and science professionals to teachers, business executives, and homemaker to live a natural and healthy life. Essential oils have been an integral part of human healthcare for thousands of years.

Each section includes protocols and recipes that are easy-to-follow and create at home. Additionally, the origins and uses of the most common and readily available essential oils are detailed in final section of the book.
