A unique and authentic learning platform created by Florian Birkmayer MD and Cathy Skipper.
Cathy and Florian have both spent many years in the healing arts using alchemy and aroma for healing the mind, emotions and the soul. The time has come to bring these experiences together under one roof, combining aromatherapy, psychology, plant consciousness, spirituality and personal journeying in the live and online training classes you will find on this site. In partnership with aromas and plants, AromaGnosis offer a truly holistic approach to healing ourselves and others.
