Ebeth13 ,

A big thanks!

Dealing with depression, empty nesting, suicidal daughter and husband losing his job after 18 years I find myself wanting a better handle in life and learning about doing things holistic. My husband bought me Cher’s book in essential oils and she referred to you and I looked you up to find a gem of information that I can listen to while I quilt, or cook and take notes!

Thank you for your sharing your expertise and experiences. Love your “smell my life” segment

Lady Calico ,

Superb resource!

I found these podcasts very helpful, especially the ones on hydrosols. It’s hard to find any info on them, so if it’s talked about on here, I know it’s trustworthy information.
Thank you for providing this valuable resource!!

listener in Ashburn ,

Really informative!!

Your training as an aromatherapist makes you a trusted resource. I just listened to the podcasts on allergies and helpful Essential Oils. I will definitely be using some of the suggestions. Thank you!!
