From Mexico to Switzerland to France!

Gary’s phone call from the Swiss lady started an important journey. From Mexico he attended the conference in Switzerland, where he was invited by two of the presenters to go to Paris, France, where he obtained 13 therapeutic-grade essential oils.

That 32-page paper was research by Dr. Jean-Claude Lapraz and Dr. Paul Duraffourd, working in a hospital in Paris, France. I was on fire when I read it. I couldn’t even sleep.

I called the lady who gave me the information at 6 o’clock the next morning; and before the phone finished ringing the first time, she picked it up and told me she was expecting my call and asked if I wanted to know more.

I said, “Yes, where can I learn?”

“There’s a seminar at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, in one week.”

“Is it possible I can attend this?”

“Well, it will be in French.”

“Well, I don’t speak French.”

“If you want to go, I will pick you up at the airport, we’ll go on the train, and I will translate for you during this 40-hour seminar.” She did, and that was the beginning.

After the class I was invited by Dr. Lapraz and Dr. Duraffourd to go to Paris to make rounds with them in the hospital where they were conducting research on essential oils. I spent a week with them there and brought home 13 oils. And that’s where it started.
