Be 100% confident you are choosing the most effective and potent carrier oils

Are your carrier oils working hard enough? 

Put your carrier oils to work and discover:  

  • Why understanding the fatty acid make-up of an oil can make the success of your formula, combination or base blend.
  • How carrier oils contribute to the effectiveness of creams, salves, infusions, EO blends, facial oils and more.
  • How to determine the shelf life of each carrier oil in your inventory. 
  • How to create unique, result specific oil combinations using the whole range of carrier oils available to us today.  
  • Why very long chain fatty acids are your best friend, and how to use them effectively to help preserve other oils in a formula or blend. 
  • How to extend the shelf life of carrier oils in storage and in formulas, infusions and blends 
  • What the healing fraction of an oil is, and how to use it to transform your recipes and formulas.
  • The 3 key critical things you need to know to read a fatty acid profile correctly. 

Whether you're creating an oil serum to boost collagen production, infusing skin healing herbs for future formulas or formulating a base for your EO blends, the Carrier Oil Course is THE place to learn the what, why, and how of creating potent and effective plant oil based formulations.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I never felt I could formulate a product as I felt I had a missing link. What kind of oil to use? These next few weeks with you is going to change that.


Susan has certainly given me my greatest insight into the carrier oils and the many benefits and effects they can bring. I have thoroughly enjoyed this new knowledge and gained great inspiration from the course, her book and fellow students on the face book group. I highly recommend this course to any one who enjoys working with natural ingredients . Carrier oils have now opened a whole new world to me and given me a greater understanding of blending .

What are the course hours?

While I am often asked about course hours I hesitate to put a time stamp on the course! I encourage you instead to work at YOUR pace. Some people pick up the chemistry, others (my self included) need time to experience, experiment and study for the concepts to take root. 

Learning online doesn't mean learning alone

Not only will l be here to support you in your educational journey along with your fellow students, the oils are here for you too!

I learn from the oils every day and as you get to know them they become friends. With the oils at your fingertips, your options for creating, crafting and refining everything from luxurious facial oils to infused herbal balms, are limitless. 

I invite you to join me,
