Santalum album is now listed as a vulnerable species due to excessive harvesting of sandalwood trees from the wild. This paper examines the current status of sandalwood, we investigate the factors that lead to the global demise of sandalwood, and we discuss the strategies taken by Australian sandalwood producers to ensure that we have a strong and sustainable future for this precious and most sacred essential oil.

I am so grateful to share with you the amazing work of Julian of Norwich and how we can relate to her teaching through essential oils and the practice of subtle aromatherapy. This webinar is intended as a brief introduction to Julian of Norwich and her legacy. I do sincerely hope that Julian’s lessons, together with essential oils, will help you navigate the ongoing challenges of life and to flourish with all the qualities that Julian refers to in the Revelations of Divine Love. 

I wanted to share with you some amazing research exploring all the amazing benefits of happiness on our wellbeing; however, to be honest I was stuck finding the right words. I then realized why I was having so much difficulty finding the right words to say – to be honest, I was not exactly feeling happy after two years of struggling with all the challenges of the pandemic. Perhaps it is time to now reflect on what happiness actually means.

In preparing for my first webinar for 2022, I have referred to the most up-to-date research – which is constantly being updated and revealing the true nature of COVID-19 related anosmia. Much of what I wrote about in my first blog in November 2021 was based on data from the Delta and earlier variants of COVID-19. The situation has now changed with the omicron variant.

I have chosen four very important essential oils that allow us to flourish and help reduce those factors that can impede vaccine effectiveness. Read my blog, in which I include five essential oil blend recipes, to learn the properties of these essential oils and why they are especially useful during the pandemic.

Happy New Year! These past two years have taught us the importance of resilience. In this message I discuss an article by Chibunda Onuzo, an incredible individual who reflects on this important character trait of resilience.

Julian of Norwich (1342 – 1415) who has been described as a profound thinker, theologian and mystic. Her teachings provide us with hope, strength and courage; her wisdom transcending time to remain more relevant than ever in the twenty-first century.

During the pandemic, many of us have taken solace in using essential oils for their antimicrobial activities, and to comfort and support us mentally, emotionally and spirituality. I therefore thought it would be good idea to nominate my ‘essential oil of the year’.
