Dear Readers: My former career meant research; and no mistakes.  I had to have solid evidence to back my claims.  I’ve continued this into Aromatherapy and encourage you to do the same.  Find reputable resources and research that is backed with scientific proof.  My website and blog is based on the research listed below. I hope this guides you in some positive directions to do your own research. Kindly, Rehne
