I had the opportunity to speak at the state nurse educators conference at the DECC last week. It was uplifting to see the changes they are trying to incorporate in nursing education to include more holistic and integrative approaches to the students!

I also had the opportunity to be a vendor at both of these conferences- I still have lots of fresh topicals and tinctures for your needs.
Get them now while they are at their peak freshness!
