Get your passport ready because we’re traveling ‘round the world!
In this series, we will take you on a global tour of aromatic plants and the oils that come from them. Some that you know and many that you don’t! Get ready to learn something new and experience the unique plants, people, and producers that are all part of this rich world of aromatherapy.
In this very edition, Deby Atterby takes us on a tour of Australia. She showcases a large variety of native essential oils and extracts, how they are sourced and what their chemical make-up consists of. She then goes on to talk about extracts and essential oils separately in order to help better distinguish the two. In her last segment, Deby Atterby presents us with the effect environmental changes have on the production of native essential oils in Australia.
Prepare to get some shrimp on the barbie because we’re going to the Land Down Under!
