A great introduction to the chemistry behind essential oils and their properties. I wish it had included more information about how to use them, alone and in combination with other oils, but there are many other books that provide recipes and this is the only one that gives such detailed explanations of the active ingredients, so that is a minor complaint. Plants have developed an extraordinary number of chemical compounds to protect themselves in their evolutionary history, and these compounds are concentrated in essential oils. ( )
