    I enjoy your website. I am just getting started in learning more about essential oils and their uses. Your charts are wonderful.
    I am learning the difference between 100% essential oil in a dark glass vial versus Contains 100% essential oil (but also contains other things when compared to the real stuff). Huge difference in effects.
    Again, I am just beginning on this journey and when researching on the internet, your site has been very helpful. I have put your site on my desktop shortcut.
    Thank you

  • Thank you Cheryl.
    Aromatherapy is addictive, in the sense that once you start learning you want to learn more an more. Nothing better to learn than to put in practice at home, with your friends and family.
