The College was established in September 1997. It is a nonprofit foundation with a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt status recognized by state and federal governments.
The building and land were purchased for the purpose of establishing a College dedicated to the botanical healing arts with a focus on essential oils. A small teacher-student ratio provides a supportive environment for healing and professional development. The surrounding land (1/3 acre) is being developed as a botanical garden from which essential oils and herbs will be derived and distilled for use in classes.
