* Patricia was not only extremely nice, but really took the time to help me customize oils for my massage business. She is knowledgeable and has a real gift for what she does. I used one of her amazing bath bombs for the first time last night and fell in love! Thank you Tricia for helping me add aromatherapy to my business. Chante G. Riverside, CA
* I am thrilled to have experienced the one of a kind service from Tricia. My daughter spent several days in the hospital with a MRSA wound on her knee (scary). Tricia, who I recently was aquatinted with from my son's baseball team heard about my daughter's situation. She asked openly and kindly about what my daughter's healing regiment was. Long story short, we weren't doing enough as the MRSA on her knee kept coming back around the same location. Step-by-step Tricia's showed me how to fight this using aromatherapy. With Tricia's exceptional advice and her step-by-step instructions we have had ZERO issues of any kind and the MRSA has not returned! Thank you Tricia, you're a life saver! **
