If you are involved in the manufacture of skin care, personal care, air care, OTC health, or cleaning products, I can help you with new product development.

I have a personal collection of over 500 essential oils, absolutes and CO2 extracts, and a library of some 10,000 journal articles.

My competencies include data mining, functional fragrances, pharmacology, safety, delivery systems and technical writing. I have a passion for innovation, and I have 35 years experience in developing essential oil-based products.

If you would like my help with your project, please contact me.
