I was not really pleased with this book. I was expecting it to have recipes for the issues that I deal with personally...like anxiety,physical ailments and loss of a loved one. Maybe I should have chosen a different book that Plant Therapy has...maybe Essential Aromatherapy or The complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy...yes ...perhaps this one would support my needs best. There were some great recipes for house hold uses but not what I was expecting.
