About Susan Parker

Herbalist Susan M Parker specializes in the many beneficial uses of fixed oils. These oils are used for many applications, but for the Aromatherapist they are the carriers. For over 25 years she worked as an herbalist and natural skin care formulator, and used fixed oils daily, but could find little all-inclusive information on them as a group. So, she did her own research and collected this information in a self-published booklet that was sold to other herbalists in California. Then, 15 years later, Power of the Seed; Your Guide to Oils for Health and Beauty was published in 2014 and is helping others learn about these wonderful oils.
