Ever wonder…

  • Why should I diffuse essential oils?
  • What essential oil do I use for…?
  • Can I ingest this essential oil!?

If you ever felt overwhelmed with how to implement essential oils into your wellness routine (or if you just want more information on their amazing powers), I’ve got a treat for you!

I had the distinct pleasure of being interviewed by 2 nutrition geniuses last Wednesday and all of the above questions were answered!

In this 59 minute podcast we also discussed:

  • the science of essential oils and the terpene – isoprene connection
  • distillation techniques
  • why quality counts
  • why I’m obsessed with sesquiterpenes
  • my n=1 experiment to test who would win- thieves verses mold (guess who reigns the king?!)
  • the importance of your team members to support you in essential oil usage

Check it out and leave your comments below.

I’d love to hear from you!
