A Great Investment


I am thoroughly enjoying the course. Just as Florian said in the introduction, even if you think you know how to buy essential oils safely, there is still so much more information on this course. It’s great to be a lifelong learner and remain current and relevant. I need to slow down to absorb everything. A great investment thanks.” Wendy Condie Wilkinson

Class Teacher – Jah Skipper

“In a mostly unregulated market, it is up to us, the consumers to become self-reliant enough to discriminate potentially unsafe and lower quality oils.

For me it is a way of honoring the power of the plant world, to accept that in order to access their virtues one needs to be able to recognize them with precision.”
