Welcome to the Aromatic Wisdom Podcast!
In today’s episode, we’ll first take a look at the importance of understanding botanical taxonomy and nomenclature (and what that even means). Then you’ll learn about five different species of Lavender plants and the essential oils produced by each one.
Enjoy the podcast! It is my sincere hope that you will feel inspired to explore essential oils deeper after listening and learn what is possible for your health and well-being when you include aromatherapy into your life.

This was a great podcast Liz! Even hubby listened and enjoyed (he is a stickler for nomenclature). Loved it, thanks for all your wonderful information!
Thanks so much Austine! I love that your hubby listened!
Great podcast! I am listening to it for the 2nd time, right now. I really appreciate the information that you provide, especially your emphasis on the chemistry component of aromatherapy. Thank you, thank you!
Thank you so much Mandi! I have to admit, this was one of my favorite episodes 🙂 Understanding the chemistry of essential oils is important and I’m glad you’re finding that information useful! And thank you for the wonderful review on iTunes.
I know some Latin too and speak a couple of Romance languages. This podcast was fun! Can you tell me why the Latin name of Lavandula angustifolia is often found as augustifolia? No “n” following the A.
Hi Ana, I’m so glad you liked this episode! I sure had fun sharing it 🙂 The only reason I can fathom why angustifolia is sometimes written as augustifolia is a typo, because it is incorrect!
Very interesting and informative Liz. I have just started studying the incredible topic of Aromatherapy and your talk was great.
Thank you for your kind words Fiona! How exciting to be on the first steps of your aromatherapy journey! Liz
