Scorpio chick Lori ,

Fantastic podcast!

I just recently found The Aromatherapist podcast and I’m so grateful I did. I’m a licensed massage therapist and training to be a Certified Aromatherapist and this podcast has been so informative. Cheryl so clearly shares valuable information and her voice is so relaxing. I’ve learned so much already. Like the difference between Ravintsara vs Ravensara....who knew?! The valuable episode on pets and oils. And I love how she throws so much science in there. This is truly my new favorite podcast! Thank you Cheryl for creating such a lovely, educational space. Can’t wait for the next episode!

Finally! A place to get unbiased information on Essential Oils!

After deciding to look for more holistic ways to care for my family, I began my quest to understand the benefits of essential oils. I quickly discovered a lot of conflicting information and turf wars across oil brands and companies. However, I just wanted to learn about oils. I didn’t want to be sold on anything but the healing power of plants. I stumbled upon this podcast last week and haven’t stop listening to it ever since! I felt like I finally had a place to go for learning about essential oils and common sense approach to using them. I was also inspired by Cheryl’s personal journey towards health which just adds to the vast knowledge she has on essential oils. Thank you so much, Cheryl! I find your podcast invaluable!
