Reviews

Review by:
The pictures in this book are gorgeous and since I've become a chemistry geek since starting EOs, I can't wait to study this book. The main reason I wanted to write this review though is that my order arrived so quickly, it was shocking! Even using surepost, I ordered on a Wednesday and it arrived Monday!! (Posted on 1/4/2017)
