Dr. Pappas, the Oil Science Guy

I didn’t take chemistry in high school because the element chart looked like hieroglyphics and totally scared me. 

In fact, I didn’t really get excited about science until I was out of school and raising my children.

Now, I study the science of yoga, Ayurveda and essential oils. I’ve become a bit of a geek.

There aren’t a lot of public videos on the science of essential oils, so I wanted to share this with you. It’s from one of my favorite scientist, Dr. Robert Pappas, the world leader in essential oil chemistry.

There are actually professional sniffers that cannot tell the difference between ‘high quality’ synthetic scents and pure, unadulterated aromatic essential oils.

Also, lavender grown in Provence, France smells different than lavender grown in Tennessee.


The quality is only assured with the testing.

It’s important to be aware of the quality of the oils you are using.

That’s where Dr. Pappas comes in. He has studied the chemistry of essential virtually his entire adult life. He is the world’s foremost authority on essential oil chemistry.
