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.
I am hoping to take this book on my next vacation. This has so much valuable information. For example: Lavender, the book gives you the description of the plant, gives you a quick overview including cautions and precautions. It tells me new things about lavender like it dissolves in sweat and sunlight it becomes an irritant. Then this book tells you about the chemical constituents. Next it has guidelines for using the oil, telling you the benefits, conditions, and the different products you can use this oil in.
The different sections have a color at the top, blue, green, pink, light blue. Starting with The Foundation, Basic Ingredients, Essential Oils, and Formulations. The last one has all the great recipes for almost anything you can think of. This is great to keep around for a reference and the recipes.
I received this product to give my honest opinion.
