My purpose is to share knowledge with others who seek more natural, green ways to improve their quality of life and the quality of our collective experience here as caretakers of beautiful planet Earth. My passions are aromatherapy, Chinese medicine, health, and wellness.
I have always liked to create with my hands and feel a certain energy flow through them. I began cooking before I could read recipes and learned from my mother about good flavor in food. Following a corporate career, I became interested in a more natural way of healing and living. Good health is of ultimate importance to me! I was familiar with acupuncture from earlier life experiences and decided to follow Chinese medicine in my studies as a Holistic Health Practitioner. While preparing a paper on aromatherapy and the etheric body, I fell in love with essential oils--not only the magnificence and strength of the aromas but also their ability to reach us on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. Essential oils alter the vibrational rate of the environment and the individual. I madly created custom body lotions to use with reflexology. I did acupressure and energy work and used essential oils externally and Chinese herbals internally while encouraging others to participate in their own health and to make better choices in life. That's how my aromatherapy business was born in 1998. Aromatherapy is both an art and a science--perfect for me because I like to combine my intuitive abilities with scientific knowledge. Creating pure, cruelty-free, chemical-free products that benefit you--that's my mission. It gives me great joy to create for others!
In 1998, I received a Master of Arts in Holistic Health Practice from the Creative Health Institute, Tucson, Arizona, followed by a Doctor of Philosophy in Holistic Health Practice in 2003. I am a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
The more I study essential oils, the more powerful I see they are. I am always looking for a way to make something natural because so many beauty products are just chemicals and preservatives. How can these be better for us than what occurs naturally on the planet? Essential oils are far more than just lovely aromas; they have been used for several thousand years for their therapeutic properties. For example, bergamot is used to soothe and relax, is excellent for balancing your mental state or depression, and stops bleeding from wounds.
