“A true poet does not bother to be poetical. Nor does a nursery gardener scent his roses.” – Jean Cocteau
There is much written about the safe use of essential oils, and it can be difficult for the beginner as well as the serious student to discern without a chemistry or research background. We recommend that you educate yourself about the properties, appropriate uses, cautions, and contraindications of any essential oil you plan to use.
Please understand that as a manufacturer of natural products, our company maintains compliance with FDA regulations, and therefore cannot dispense any information that might reference a medical condition or constitute medical advice.
We have our own experience and researched opinions. While we do not necessarily agree with everything expressed in each of these books, we want to help people choose the most helpful, most truthful information available. Therefore, we recommend the following – ranging from medical to scientific to metaphysical. Found new or used, they contain information we consider to be the best currently available.
