Book Review

In classic Tom Robbins style, Jitterbug Perfume, first published in 1984 is crafted with humor and wisdom intertwined so cleverly that you’re not always sure if one trumps the other. While the book isn’t exactly a “how to” guide to essential oils, it is a fun and somewhat educational read around the topic of essential oils and perfumery.
