The Aromatic Wisdom Podcast 
with show host, Liz Fulcher

Show Notes for Episode 39

If you use essential oils, hydrosols, CO2s or vegetable carrier oils, this episode of the Aromatic Wisdom Podcast with Dr. Kelly Ablard is one you will not want to miss!  In this show, I interviewed Kelly Ablard, Director of The Airmid Institute and an expert on medicinal botanicals at risk.    

I straight up asked Dr. Ablard, “Are we in danger of running out of some essential oils because we’re over-harvesting the plants?”  Her answer….?  You’ll just have to listen to the podcast to learn her response!
