This easy-to-read book concludes with similarities among the programs discussed and draws a summary of which programs seemed to work best while maintaining feelings of happiness and satisfaction

Danielle Sade, BSc, CAHP has over thirty years of experience teaching and practicing complementary health practices where she creates educational certification programs in aromatherapy and also leads workshops in making natural product formulations for personal and professional use.
She’s passionate about sharing the sound scientific basis upon which aromatherapy is built and making this invaluable information available to everyone. The aromatic molecules of a plant not only have the power to shift the way you feel but the essential oils from plants also have powerful therapeutic properties. It’s the dynamics of these therapeutic actions that form the foundation in Danielle’s successful approach to skin care.
Danielle was also inspired to write this book because she herself has experienced skin sensitivities that didn’t improve even after visits to skin specialists and conventional therapies. When the symptoms didn’t subside, she took matters into her own hands and sought out a natural-medicine healing approach through essential oils.
Making your own natural botanical creams and lotions is surprisingly simple and very satisfying — you’ll soon be on the road to recovery and living a more natural lifestyle.
