After searching the world over for a credible essential oil company that sells real honest to goodness medicinal oils I discovered Michael Scholes and his wonderful company “The Laboratory of Flowers”. Plus, I’ve had the privilege of meeting Michael here in my shop when he did a couple of essential oil classes for me here at Huckleberry Lang. Michael is from the UK and has lived in the United States since 1982 and has been in the business for over 33 years. The Laboratory of Flowers met all my criteria for a small company with absolute integrity. Producing over 600 essential oils, absolutes, hydrosols, and fixed oils.
For those of you that are industrious and want to make an essential oil recipe…try this…
