Recorded live, these webinars are "classic Dr Joy" material, and are a great start if you haven't studied with her before. You don't need essential oil chemistry, but you do need to have some experience with using essential oils, and an enquiring mind. To get them to you quickly, they have been uploaded without editing, so please bear with some technical issues like fluctuating sound and some pauses.

As with all of Dr Joy's webinars, if you have any questions, please email them, and you'll get detailed responses from Dr Joy until you are satisfied!

These webinars are also available with Australian $ pricing from Trybooking.com - search for Dr. Joy if you prefer to use that currency.

Dr E. Joy Bowles, PhD, BSc Hons

Dr E. Joy Bowles is an author, educator and researcher, best known for her contribution to the understanding of essential oil chemistry in the aromatherapy community. After completing her Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Organic Chemistry and Cell Biology, she developed the first course in essential oil chemistry in Australia in 1991. In 2007 she gained her PhD on the effect of essential oils on cognitive function in dementia, but her academic career went on hold for a period of motherhood and working for 10 years in chronic disease management, Joy returned to share her chemistry and pharmacology understanding with a new generation of essential oil enthusiasts, aromatherapists and health practitioners.
