Certification Course is now LIVE!

After months of preparation, writing, recording, revising and editing, the online certification course is now up and running.

The book is in Spanish, but I wanted to share this news with you all. There are virtually no books in Spanish on this subject so I hope that "Libre Elección" (Free Choice) will help to [...]

Leishmaniasis

I am currently taking a course on fundamental organic chemistry in relation to essential oils. In the latest lesson a piece of information surfaced which I thought would be of great interest to a lot of people. One of the  common constituents of essential oils examined was beta-caryophyllene.
