If you can use a dictionary or encyclopedia, then you can use this book with your collection of oils to learn a variety of applications, ways to support specific conditions, and the history and science associated with essential oils. It is a must for someone wanting to transition from using over-the-counter and under-the-sink synthetics to all natural, safe, and effective CPTG essential oils and oil-infused products.
