Making Sense of Making Scents
The idea of the book came from the crisis in British farming that suddenly demanded that farmers diversify in ways that were both sustainable and ecologically sound. The book starts by providing an enthralling history of essential oils through the ages - from the Pharoahs to the present day.
It then shows farmers and budding essential oil producers exactly how they can benefit today from clear, practical advice available nowhere else.
What equipment to use? What is the expected outlay? What essential oils can be distilled and what products can then be made from them? What are the expected profits? All these questions and much, much more are addressed in an easy to read, light-hearted format. From armchair enthusiasts to inquisitive farmers, Bruce Dolby's book offers a delightfully amusing read as well as the knowledge to get started.
