Some nice words from folks who have attended previous workshops:

“Thank you again for the weekend.  Your passion and commitment to the forest, the plants, the oils and helping all beings to heal is clear and inspiring!” – R.

“I certainly did not expect what I experienced. I was amazed at how one man could make so much happen! Your distillation process is a delight. I appreciate the concept of thanking the plants when you harvest them. The gloves and the branch representing the man’s hands coming together with the plants as a cooperative effort… I certainly see and feel the difference in these oils and hydrosols. I’ve almost used up all of my rabbit brush, I love it so much. I took away the value of the process leading up to the oils, and I will be sure to investigate all sources of essential oil I intend on working with.” – T.

“Thank you deeply for the hospitality in sharing your home and educating us in the process of essential oil making. Watching the entire process from collecting the plant to setting up the distiller to enjoying the final outcome was… really cool!! Learning from you was definitely an inspiration, and it got me thinking about implementing a still on our property in a few years.” – C.


“We learned about the process of making essential oils from scratch, which is useful information to be sure, but the most powerful things I brought home with me were not specific facts and procedures. They were the experiences I received from within myself, from my classmates, from the animals, from Eric, and from the trees themselves.” – W. S.

“I want to thank you for your guidance into my journey with the Ponderosa while I was at the House of Aromatics…. I had an amazing experience while I was there and learned so much about essential oils. You are a graceful and skilled guide. I am grateful for my experiences while I was there. Thank you for holding space and helping to forge memories I will always treasure.” – T.

“Thank you again for all you are doing to take part in healing the earth and healing the people in it. I learned so much about essential oil that I did not know before and now I feel so much more responsible. I assumed I would never truly understand the process of extracting properties from plant material through steam… but the way it was broken down into parts was absolutely refreshing and I can honestly say I understand the process. Thank you! What a great feeling.” – P. G.
