Ask  

nickrgilbert asked: Fab pics - what books are they from? And would I be ok to use them for blog posts about ingredients in perfumery? I'd of course give credit. Nick x


Answer:

They’re all images I found on http://commons.wikimedia.org, mostly with expired copyright, so they’re all public domain. Most of them were unaccredited. I actually collected all of the images as a project for school, then I decided to upload them here so other people could enjoy the fun stuff I found whilst digging. So, yes, use them if you’d like!

Answer:

Thank you! You’re blog is lovely as well! :)

Yes, I am currently in a program to receive an essential oil practitioner license.  I also make perfumes and natural cosmetic and health products, and am beginning to delve into my studies in herbalism.
