this is not intended to be a tutorial. the purpose of this site is not to instruct, but merely to share my personal experience, conclusions, and observations in creating my own fragrances and bath/skin-care products. however, the material contained herein may inspire you, confirm some of your own conclusions, or provide you with that bit of elusive information you need to succeed with your own project(s).
for me, the common denominator of all this is the essential oil. essential oils are used to create personal and utility fragrances as well as the scent [and flavor] component of the skin care products ...and let's not overlook their respective therapeutic qualities.
i've tried to distill the myriad (and sometimes contradictory) bits of information i've gathered [from so many sources] into a cohesive (albeit simplified) understanding of the inclusive topics. i've also incorporated my own comments based on my experience with the products and/or processes. simply put, this site is my attempt at making sense of it all.
navigating the site: navigate [the main pages] using the front page links (below) or the icon bar (located at the top of this page and at the bottom of all other main pages), or access [all pages] using the "site map", (which is also accessible via the magnifying glass in the icon bar).
the site map page also contains a search box, which will search [most of the pages of *] this site for any word or phrase.

i've divided the site into the following sections:
