You’ve been curious about essential oils…
…but you’re not quite sure what do do with them.
Which oils are best for soothing a headache?
How do I know what to look for when choosing an oil?
Is it possible to use too much of an oil?
Do they really work?
If you’re asking these questions, you’re in exactly the right place. A bit of basic knowledge about essential oils will go a long way, and taking a class is one of the best ways to empower yourself and experience the healing power of essential oils firsthand.
I offer classes both virtually and in-person, and love connecting with people in these spaces – it’s my joy to share what I’ve learned and continue to learn with you. If you’d like to join my private Facebook group devoted to essential oils education via Facebook Live (100% free!), drop me a line and I’ll add you. I’m looking forward to connecting with you soon!

Elizabeth’s Essential Oils 101 workshop was just what I needed to remind me that my health is really in my hands. As soon as I left, I dug out all my books on herbs to keep reading about how to bring the healing power of plants into my medicine cabinet. I have been using the samples that Elizabeth gave out at the workshop and am amazed at how effective they are. I can’t wait for the next workshop!

I loved the chance to connect with a new way of supporting myself. I loved learning more about each oil and their healing properties on a physical and spiritual level… this feels like such an important healing resource for people. I have been interested in essential oils for a while but haven’t integrated it into my daily practices. Thank you for renewing this interest! I am eager to learn more.
