It is a good idea to purchase the CARE DVDs on Raindrop and Vitaflex to review ahead of class in preparation for the hands-on training. Your fingernails must also be very short and filed smooth on the edges and corners. Clippers and files will be available in class. With long nails you will not be able to do all of the Vitaflex and Raindrop techniques. If you cannot perform all of the techniques taught in class because of long nails, you may not receive credit for the class.

This was not just another seminar. It was a true learning experience. I have been doing oils for nine years, but never really understood the chemistry of them before now. David Stewart is very knowledgeable and a master teacher who can reach both the novice and the well-informed, and he brings along his delightful sense of humor, and so much love. I recommend his seminars to anyone who has the desire to deepen their understanding of the workings of essential oils. In fact, my honest assessment is that if you have the opportunity to attend anything David presents, DON'T WALK, RUN to register!
Joy Linsley, Naperville, Illinois

David and Lee Stewart and their CARE Helpers are fantastic teachers of the hands-on Vitaflex and Raindrop techniques. David makes chemistry easy to relate to the oils, which greatly helped my understanding. David and his wife, Lee, are a great team for a very exciting and pleasant learning experience.
Perry Mueller, DDS, Lake Jackson, Texas

This has been a fantastic seminar! Presented with so much clarity. God's love has been manifested and witnessed in Dr. Stewart, who is so amazing. Numbers are not high enough to express the excellence of this program.
Gavin Hartley, Thirrout, New South Wales, Australia

The intensive workshop was well paced. Dr. Stewart was totally knowledgeable in all areas of the program. His ability to field questions was amazing. I recommend the program to anyone seriously interested in increasing their knowledge of essential oils.
Colleen H. Rowe, N.D., Fair Oaks, California

The CARE Seminar was fabulous! Dr. Stewart and his wife, Lee, have an incredible gift and passion for teaching. I would highly recommend the CARE program for anyone who wants to learn more about oils and what they can do to heal the world we live in. I have met many people in the healing arts, but I have never met anyone with purer hearts than these two precious people. I experienced my first raindrop at the seminar. I had an intensely moving emotional clearing. Because of the love and CARE I experienced at this seminar, I felt safe enough to release some issues I have held for many years! Following the raindrop, I just broke down and cried and cried. I felt such an intense grief. When I allowed forgiveness to enter my heart, my lungs swelled up like a balloon. For the first time since I can remember, I was able to get air to the deepest recesses of my lungs. I was healed instantly of asthma, which at the time had become life threatening. It was one of the most moving and beautiful experiences of my life. I feel as if God has cleared space in my heart to pour his gifts into me. I also feel his calling to go and use these wonderful oils to help others heal themselves. I am so grateful to God for bringing me tothis seminar and confirming His love for me.

Niki Moman, Olathe, Kansas

We traveled a long way (from England to California) for Dr. Stewart's program. We have no suggestions for improvement of this seminar. The whole seminar was very interesting and enlightening. David has an excellent knowledge of essential oils and raindrop technique which he shares with his students very well. It has been very rewarding and we are looking forward to introducing the Vitaflex and Raindrop to the U.K. The program was excellent, very enjoyable and well worth every mile traveled!"
Susan D. Duerden, Massage Therapist and SPA Owner,
Clitheroe, Lancashire, England

The CARE seminar with Dr. Stewart is the most enjoyable and enlightening course I have ever attended. Thank You. 
Sue Katuna-Rich, Balcatta, Western Australia

This was a very worthwhile and comprehensive program I would recommend everyone take. It was a very informative, organized and thorough workshop . . . and Fun! I teach oils myself and the pieces of information I was missing was the chemistry. David and Lee have put a lot of time, effort, hard work, and love into this program. It was worth every cent, and then some. You didn't charge enough for all the info you gave to us. Your program brought an even clearer picture to my already considerable knowledge of essential oils. I was very impressed with the entire program. I would love to repeat your class when you come to my area again.Roxanna Weddle, Silver Springs, Maryland

This has been the most complete and best presented workshop I've had the pleasure of participating in. The mood set by David and Lee was so mind opening and heart accepting! Words are not enough to express my appreciation for what you have given and blessed me with this weekend.
Jorge Brown, Maple Shade, New Jersey

I attended David Stewart's C.A.R.E. Seminar in Anaheim and want to say that if you have the opportunity to go to one of his training classes, GO! David is a tremendous teacher. Even the five hours of chemistry was fun . . . well, maybe 'fun' isn't the right word, but it was certainly interesting and understandable. David truly has a gift for sharing and teaching and I feel very fortunate to have been able to learn from him.
Robin Skov, Canoga, California

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for such a wonderful program. Not only have I learned a great deal of new skills, I have grown as a spiritual being. All this in just a few days! 
Kim McMahon, Bronte Beach, New South Wales, Australia

This workshop has been the most rewarding learning experience since my introduction to essential oils. The wealth of material and wonderful personal experiences and knowledge shared was beyond my expectations. In these times of despair, I feel blessed to be a part of such a God-centered healing organization as CARE.Aziyza Shabazz, St. Croix, Virgin Islands

This program offered the best chemistry that I have come across. Dr. Stewart takes the essential oil chemistry and turns it into common 'scents' helping us to understand why these amazing oils can do what they do. The entire program David and Lee offer is an excellent comprehensive integration of experience and theory and a wonderful foundation for the best of what therapeutic essential oils offer!
Marilee Tolen, RN, HCN, CHTP, Mt. Laurel, New Jersey

Dear Lee and Dr. Dave: I can think of no way to improve this course. It is the best workshop I have ever attended. I feel I have gotten more than my money's worth.Steve H. Potts, Newcastle, Wyoming
