Barb Wagner / dottera Oils

 Would you like to learn how to begin down the path to wellness? I have dedicated myself to teaching people how to do just that.

I was introduced to essential oils in the summer of 2011. At that time, I had never heard of an essential oil. All I knew was that I had not slept through the night in years, and I was really tired of that.

A good friend sent me a little bottle of lavender essential oil and

suggested that I put a drop of it on the bottom of my feet before

going to bed. It seemed a little crazy, but I thought, “Why not?”

So I did as she suggested, and I was amazed to have one of the

most restful night’s sleep in years!!

I attended one of her classes and learned how the different oils could benefit me and support my body with the tools it needed to maintain optimal health. In the years since, I have become a great student of the oils. I attend national training sessions taught by some of the best scientists and experts on essential oils. I read all I can on them, but most importantly, I USE them everyday! Because I have seen so many benefits from using them, it has become my passion to tell others about them every chance I get.

So I am happy you have come to this website. Please go to the contact page so I can help you learn about using essential oils on your wellness journey!

Pensacola Business Radio: ECSB Visits to talk about Options for Career Path and Academies offered to get you there!


Career Academies-Learn More Here


The School District of Escambia County’s career academies are small learning communities within middle or high schools that focus on a career pathway for a two-, three-, or four-year span. Students enter through a voluntary application process; they must apply and be accepted, with parental knowledge and support. Students in a career academy take a mixture of career (usually one or two) and academic (usually three or four) classes each year. Classes meet entrance requirements for four- year universities. Students develop knowledge in a given industry, and—in most academies—students have opportunities to earn industry certification relevant to the career academy. Students’ senior year may include work experience, paid or unpaid, in the community.

Please contact us for more information about our career academy opportunities.
