At least how essential oils are created! Told by one of the most amazing, kind, gentle souls.
It's no secret and I am not ashamed of it, I love love love essential oils. I find them to be completely fascinating. Perhaps I am wired a bit odd but when I experience an oil, a universe unfolds for me. The power they have in supporting us in Mind, Body, and Spirit is undeniable. The history of their effectiveness is as old as time. Now, I am the first to admit that I am not the most sciencey in explaining them.
I do have an appreciation and a desire to really understand the practical science behind each of the ingredients I use to formulate. So I take the time to read and research and listen to wise people like Robert Tisserand.
I have been a huge fan of his for many years and started reading his books and his on-line content before I ever launched Très Spa. He has a gift for explaining the complex in such a graceful way. He is not emotional about it and doesn't give into artificial hype or commercialism. I find I can truly trust his insight.
I had to share this with you. So carve out 12 minutes and listen to this brilliant man share How Essential Oils are Created in Plants. *At the 7 minute mark he starts to talk about peppermint and the journey…..fascinating!
Here are a couple of books to add to your reading library:
Robert now has a web based “university of learning” called the Tisserand Institute. Check it out here
