If you feel called to a career helping people in hospice care with Aromatherapy, I want to thank you.
This is such a special calling, and a special gift you can offer to the world.
I hope that you know what a profound effect essential oils can have on people in hospice care.

I overheard Lavender and Spike Lavender essential oils having a conversation the other day . . . Lavender: I sure do enjoy spending time with you, friend! But do you know what? I think sometimes people get us confused. Spike Lavender: It’s understandable, we have a lot in common. But we are very different too!
