I’m loving the book…I have always been interested in the perfect synergy of carrier and essential oils. I found About Vegetable Oils online while researching carriers that would be beneficial for a client who needs help with some superficial scarring. I often wind up looking online or in a few of my books for information that isn’t half as detailed as what you’ve put together, and I found just what I wanted quickly and wonderfully organized in your book. I know I’ll reference About Vegetable Oils often!
Your blending manual is next on my list. 🙂
