Resources

In my journey to learn about Essential Oils and Aromatherapy over the years, I deep dive into books and courses. I love to educate myself and below you can see some of the books I have used as resources when writing my content. I have tried a lot of different recipes and have been inspired to make some of my own as well. Some of the recipes are from the books. There are so many brilliant authors, and I feel honored to share such great wisdom and knowledge so that we all can live more in harmony with Mother Nature. So share and include this knowledge in your care for yourself and your family and friends. Love Susann
