About Susan Parker

Art school major, herbalist, formulator, now carrier oil researcher, Susan has had a varied career. Twenty two years formulating and creating herbal topical skincare products led her to research and write the book on carrier oils, Power of the Seed; Your Guide to Oils for Health and Beauty, to more fully understand and appreciate these often under appreciated oils. The herbal products business has been put on hold and she now teaches on-line courses and runs a membership site on all aspects of these important oils. She now lives and works in Portland Oregon.

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.
