Book Description:
"Essential Oils: Art. Agriculture, Science, Industry and Entrepreneurship, A Focus on the Asia-Pacific Region" takes an interdisciplinary look at the development of essential oils from the agricultural to consumer products sectors. The book espouses a product/market driven and entrepreneurial approach rather than a commodity approach, offering many new ideas and tools to assist the reader in the area of essential oil development. This book uniquely covers both the technical and business aspects in a detail that will inform readers of the complexities of essential oil development, production and business development. This book is the result of the authorís thirty years experience in the industry.


"This book presents a comprehensive overview of the essential oil sector. Professor Hunter has put his expertise and practical experience to the disposal of researchers and entrepreneurs. While maintaining scientific integrity, the language also encourages the layman to read and understand this technical subject. This book is an absolute must for all those interested in essential oils."
