Certified Aromatherapist • Essential Oil Educator & Workshop Facilitator
Plants have been used since ancient times for their aroma and natural healing abilities. The practice of aromatherapy uses natural plant extracts, such as essential oils, hydrosols, and carrier oils, to promote healing for the physical and the emotional body. Aromatherapy can be used topically or through inhalation.
Plant extracts can be used to enhance a meditation practice, ease anxiety or provide comfort during a time of loss.
Knowing how to safely use essential oils with regard to dilution and application is imperative, and comes not from a background with an essential oil company but through certification and academic study. I have a level one certification in Aromatherapy.
"Aromatherapy is described as both an art and a science because it takes the knowledge of the scientific aspects of the plants and oils and combines it with the art of producing a beneficial or healing blend. Basically, a successful aromatherapy blend is a synergy of science, art, and the practitioner’s knowledge of both, and how to apply it. Aromatherapy can be used topically and via inhalation."

End of Life
"No less significant than preparing for our own death is helping others to die well."
The Dalai Lama
When I think about the practice of aromatherapy with people entering the last steps of their physical journey, I lean towards offering aromatic support that thru scent may ease the physical and energetic body as it winds down.

I will travel to your bedside or home to provide an hour of aromatic support which may include diffusing scent for relaxation, the application of a custom herbal blend to hands or feet, the use of hydrosols for emotional care and support, hand crafted herbal oil infusions used as a base for essential oils and more.
