In a recent blog post Jade Shutes challenges the safety guidelines for using essential oils in the bath published on TisserandInstitute.org. She also feels that there is an increasing (and in her opinion unfortunate) trend to cite research. Jade proposes that this is not good because research is cited at the expense of personal experience.

A Comprehensive Resource for Essential Oil Safety for Professional, Practitioner, and Industry Reference. The Only Reference of its Kind and a Must-Have Guide for any Health Professional, or Health Product Manufacturer.

The 600 newly structured and extended Profiles (either of essential oils or constituents) provide the only comprehensive, evidence-based guidance currently in publication to safe formulations and use of an encyclopedic range of essential oils.
Upcoming In-Person Seminars
Comments from online seminar attendees:
Excellent seminar, very easy to follow. I could’ve easily listened for another hour or more at that pace. You presented very clearly in a well-organized and entertaining manner.
I really enjoyed your online presentation and the handout info too… great job! The online option gets easier as you go along. 🙂
I really enjoyed it-both the content as well as the style of presentation. It was great having the tech support there, nice to get messages back from him in the moment. I liked the question time between each section.
I learned a lot from the webinar because your explanations were very clear and understandable and would recommend them to anyone. You were giving information in such a way that all levels of aromatherapists and students would find helpful.
The nicest part of the seminar, for me personally, was that it was all usable information. Everything that you presented I can not only use for myself, but also share with others in a way that they can more easily understand and appreciate.
