An important new reference." * So Young! * "Schnaubelt presents sound research to demonstrate how essential oils interact with the different systems of the body." * Making Scents, Winter 1998-99 * "Schnaubelt brings singular authority to this explanation of the reasons why essential oils act on different systems of the body.
