Essential Chemistry for Aromatherapy

Author: Rosemary Caddy
At the core of Essential Oils in Colour is the ninety essential oil profiles. Each profile includes a visual and colorful pie chart that accompanies a list of the functional groups present for the oil. For each functional group, she lists the percentage present in the oil.
