The POWER of Therapuetic Grade Essential Oils

By Olivier Wenker, MD, MBA, ABAARM, DEAA, Physician for Integrative, Anti-aging, and Regenerative Medicine, Fellow in Metabolic and Nutritional medicine, Fellow in Integrative Oncology, Member of the Medical and Scientific Council and International Keynote Speaker Young Living Essential Oils.
