This podcast is all about 2 different essential oils that sound the same. 

Ravensara and Ravintsara. 

Travel with me (virtually of course) to the lush tropical island of Madagascar to hear about these essential oils that come from the same country, but from different trees. I talk about their many therapeutic and chemical characteristics and a third essential oil that indirectly fits into this picture as well.

And, surprise, I have a special gift for you! I have put together an easy 3 page visual learning guide for Ravensara and Ravintsara and that third tree, Ho Wood. Go to aromaticwisdominstitute.com/027, scroll to the bottom the page and you will see where you can download it for free!

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.

In this week's show, I'm introducing a new format for the "Ask Liz" segment. Previously, I'd been answering listener questions at the end of an episode, but I've decided instead to take a listener question and devote an episode to my answer in order to get deeper on the topic.

Today's Ask Liz question comes from  Ahsamon from Portland, Oregon who wrote and asked about the best essential oils to address the discomfort of menstrual cramps.   

In this episode you will learn:

  • What causes menstrual cramps
  • Six Essential Oils that will help with cramping, pain, inflammation and bad mood
  • Methods of application to help with the discomfort during the menstrual cycle

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.

If you have a question you'd like to submit to the show, please send an email to liz@aromaticwisdom.com with the words "Ask Liz" in the subject line.

Last September I spoke with Kristina Bauer and Angela Ehmke, Executive Producers of the groundbreaking aromatherapy documentary called, Uncommon Scents. We chatted about this amazing venture in Episode 17.

Recently we spoke again on a conference call in which they shared the progress of the film and the very important current stage of the project:  Crowdfunding.  Raising funds to ensure that this aromatherapy documents does, infact, manifest. It was a great call and I learned a lot about the perks you can get when you contribute...even a little!
