What’s So Special About Essential Oils?
I completed all three phases of The Nectar of Plants, and would heartily recommend it. After 30 years of practice, and many continuing education classes, this one is at the top of my list. The material is compelling and challenging and Josephine has a remarkable facility with applying it to actual cases, and a genuine gift for teaching.
– Maureen McManus-Powers
I took Josephine’s class, The Nectar of Plants and loved the beautiful way she layered the oils special properties with conditions and how to combine the oils to treat the whole person. I always wanted to learn how to combine the oils to make an effective formula. I appreciated that we did that in each class to continually reinforce the concepts of managing the different imbalances in the body and how to get them to work together.
I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying the course so far! I plan on taking the next Part immediately. The colorful commentary and your amazing insight into how the organ systems show up is refreshing! I’ve been practicing for 25 years and studied at TAI. Oils are going to fit so nicely where I am on Capitol Hill, no one wants to take the amount of herbal supplements they really need. Very excited to get involved with the forum and learn more.
-Allison Bower, Lic. Ac., M.Ac.
It was very helpful having the forums to ask questions and get feedback in and she was generous with her guidance. I am grateful to be able to listen to them as much as I wanted to and to have the time between sessions to integrate her wisdom and develop my own relationship with the oils. I am not an acupuncturist so the concepts took me some time to integrate into my being and way of looking at conditions and people and it is so much fun
– Judy Jarvis
Exploring all the ways I might support people is important to me. Personally, I recognized that the use of essential oils was very therapeutic for me. My acupuncturist recommended that I check out Josephine’s class as a way to explore and learn about the possibility of learning to use essential oils to help the people I work with. Because I am not an acupuncturist, I was uncertain if the class would work for me. Josephine was so supportive and available to help. This was the first online class I have taken, too, and I was uncertain if that would be a good learning format for me, but I live too far away to take the class in person. And now I am hooked on learning all I can about how to use essential oils, particularly in treating emotions and mental states which are, of course, connected to the blood and the body. The technology worked fine, I was able to ask questions during class, and Josephine was great about responding to my questions and messages on the forum. I am starting to work on custom formulas and really benefited from the example case studies we did in class. I know there is much more to learn, but I feel confident Josephine will be available to help guide me as I move forward. Go for it! This class is worth it.

Josephine utilizes an excellent teaching method, which she calls “layering”. She introduces information little by little throughout the context of the course, which allows time for processing, creating a deeper and longer lasting understanding of the use of these fascinating oils.
