Love this podcast!

I love the Aromatic Wisdom podcast. In each episode, I learn something new about essential oils and aromatherapy. Liz’s education and experience in the aromatherapy field make for rich content delivered in a way that is personalized and easy to understand. Listening to her makes me feel like I’m hanging out with a friend. I especially love the “smell my life” segment. The episodes are short enough to listen to on my commute to work, but I often listen again so I can go back and take notes. Whether you are a “newbie” or a seasoned aromatherapist, this podcast will have something for you.

Briana Simpson ,

The BEST aromatherapy podcast!

Liz is incredibly knowledgeable! As an aromatherapist myself, it is always such a treat to find someone who teaches me new things! I cannot recommend her podcast enough!

Cspeople ,

A joy to listen.

I look forward to listening to this podcast and come back often! Such tangible information to use in my own aromatherapy journey. It’s easy to digest and her voice is so soothing.
