Candice Covington's depth of knowledge and insight into the Tattavas elements and Divine Archetypes is amazing.

I have been fortunate to experience the healing properties of the Tattavas essential oils through Rosemary Beam (www.rosemarybeam.com)who is the practitioner who orchestrates my use of the oils.
