The Aromatherapy Beauty Guide

An Essential Beauty Guide

If you want to learn more about making effective and natural skin and hair care products, this is the perfect book. Let’s explore together The Aromatherapy Beauty Guide.

About the Author

Danielle Sade has over 30 years of experience in the field of aromatherapy. She has founded a renowned aromatherapy school and served as President of the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists (CFA) for three terms. One of her most iconic phrases is certainly “Each drop of essential oil contains a natural pharmacy”. For her, common scientific foundations are essential to share information and make understanding more effective.

According to reports, aromatic molecules not only have the power to change the way we perceive the world, but also therapeutic properties. It’s the dynamics of these therapeutic actions that form the foundation in Danielle’s successful approach to skin care.

She was also inspired to write this book because she herself has experienced skin sensitivities for a long time. After trying a number of treatments, she sought out a natural-medicine healing approach through essential oils
