Essential Oils & Botanical Intelligence- A Conversation with Aromatherapist John Steele

Renowned aromatherapist, archaeologist and author John Steele talks with Jill Cloutier about essential oils, plant wisdom and the world of scent. John Steele is an aromatic consultant and owner of Lifetree Aromatix, a select line of botanical essential oils and exotic floral absolutes. 

In this interview, John speaks in depth about our sense of smell, using oils in self-empowered first aid, how incense was the "aromatic email of early civilization" and floral/plant communication. John talks about the terroir of essential oils, why he calls Lavender the "Swiss Army Knife of Oils" and the important differences between authentic essential oils and "natural" synthetic oils. John Steele also shares his knowledge about the sacred use of fragrance and perfumeros- shamans who heal with scent.
