Crystal-Light ,

So informative!

Thank you Liz, I have learned so much about aromatherapy on this podcast! I am studying aromatherapy but this is so great to listen to while driving. You have a great way of explaining everything! Can you please do more deep dives into different oils?

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.

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!
