For most of my adult life I have leaned towards a more holistic outlook towards my health and the health of my family. I grew my own herbs, made my own tinctures and teas. I've spent many hours studying herbs and plant matter, not to mention the food we eat, how it affects our body and how it can enhance our own personal healing.
I fell in love with essential oils in 2009 when I was receiving massage therapy for complex PTSD. Before I left, the massage therapist always massaged my hands with an essential oil blend. I had no idea what was in it, but the SCENT. I would sit in the car with my hands under my nose and just inhale. Just breathe. Beautiful and relaxing.
Aromatherapy, simply put, is the use of scent, aroma, to enhance the feeling of well-being in mind, body and spirit. It becomes more complex when we explain the way plant matter is used - extracting its essential oils, using the distilled waters, macerating dried herbs, understanding it’s chemical compounds and potential properties - but in its simplest form, aromatics, our sense of smell, inhaling a scent is the quickest, most gentle and soothing way of assisting with our mental and spiritual wellness.
I began making blends using essential oils, macerated herbs, hydrosols and different carrier oils to encourage healing of mind, body and spirit. I desired a more intimate knowledge of essential oils and began studying at the Aroma Apothecary Healing Arts Academy, logging immeasurable hours of formal and informal study.
Aromatic Blessings is a dream that came from a desire to encourage my own personal healing. Now it’s my greatest privilege to offer these same products to you to enhance your goals of wellness.
Wishing you Aromatic Blessings,
