Anya's Garden Natural Perfumery Institute: Offering Natural Isolates course

Elise Pearlstine, PhD, is on board for the Natural Isolates course. The information that she and I are researching and the expanded outline we've developed for the course are incredibly educational. We have ancient books, modern books, a chemist as a consult, and lots of never-before-in-one-place information to share. The course will be offered in February 2011. 

Perfume podcasts now available on

I just uploaded two podcasts to the website for the enjoyment of the general
public. If you have any suggestions as to future public podcasts, let me
know. The students enjoy lengthy, informative podcasts as part of
their education at Anya's Garden Natural Perfumery Institute, and I
...decided to make some new public-side podcasts for everyone.
