This beautiful laminated chart is great for brightening any room whilst providing a quick reference point for some of the wonderful ways essential oils can be put to practical and healing use.
Essential oils have been used for medicine and therapeutic treatments for thousands of years, and can be used as a blended massage oil, in the bath, as a wash, as a cold compress, in a cream or lotion, in an oil burner or simply as a gorgeous personalised perfume.
Created by Liz Cook in conjunction with Sophia Bee, who qualified in Holistic and Clinical Aromatherapy through the AAPA at Essential Care Training in South London in 1999.

"I received a chart - 16 essential oils for home use - from a dear friend. It is absolutely fantastic. It is lovely to look at: a feast of information that inspires me to do all sorts of things re holistic therapies. Please accept my thanks." - Ros Turnbull
