I am now a Certified Aromatherapist! After completing a continuing education program with Floracopeia and the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy, Level I – the Oregon Board of Pharmacy has even given me 14 continuing education credits for this comprehensive course.
Floracopeia oils are the oils I have chosen to carry because they are an organic, pure, therapeutic grade – one drop of this amazing essential oil is the same strength as drinking 23 cups of tea made from the same plant. The company contracts with small farmers around the world to grow the various plants organically in the natural environments they thrive in – also in an eco-friendly way. The essential oils are distilled on the farm immediately after harvest, producing a wonderful product. This avoids accusations of diluted or adulterated oils you hear between other companies.

I also like the fact that the founder, David Crow, is one of the world’s foremost experts and leading speakers in the field of botanical medicine and grassroots healthcare. He is a master herbalist, aromatherapist and acupuncturist with over 30 years experience. David is also an expert in the Ayurvedic and Chinese medical systems. He is a renowned author, a poet, and is the founding director of Floracopeia Aromatic Treasures – and has great scientific based educational options on the site as well.
For more information, see this video, where Floracopeia founder David Crow explores the company’s guiding vision and interconnected missions. Watch to learn about the mandalic model of business and the Four Global Benefits of medicinal plants. You can also gain an intimate view into Floracopeia’s support for sustainable eco-systems. They also support the people who produce these high-quality aromatic products through vibrant images of plants, landscapes, and our agricultural partners around the world.
The encouraged method of use for essential oils is aromatherapy. These oils can be either topically, usually with dilution, or with a diffuser. Why? Using the food pyramid illustration, the harvested plant is the base of the pyramid, teas are the next level of concentration on top of this base, extracted tinctures are the next concentrated level, with essential oils on top of tinctures. The only thing more concentrated are pharmaceutical products. So Floracopeia essential oils are therapeutic grade and can be used orally, however are not something you want or need to use orally on a daily basis unless treating something medical with a trained health care professional knowledgable in this area. I like Floracopeia also because they promote environmentally responsible and educated use of oils for home grassroots use. You purchase what you need, when you need it (no monthly orders of a certain amount required). Can you tell this brand resonates with me?
