What is Aromatherapy?
Holistic Aromatherapy utilizes aromatic plant material (essential oils) to promote health and well-being. These essences can be used synergistically to target specific clinical symptoms (e.g., headaches, insomnia, pain, inflammation, women's or men's health issues) or to restore emotional and spiritual balance. As an Aromatherapist I'm trained to use the organic chemistry, safety implications and therapeutic effects of each essential oil - The Science - and I combine them into synergistic blends unique to each individual and the symptoms they're experiencing - The Art.
Essential oils can have powerful and immediate effects on the human brain and body. By working with me on your specific health concerns, I can devise a treatment plan and individual health protocol to help you achieve optimum health.
What you can expect from me as your Aromatherapy Practitioner
A commitment to your health and wellness:
Book a 1-hour wellness consultation today. We'll take the time for me to get to know you, and your specific health challenges, so that I can recommend the best course of action and individually-formulated products to support you on your path to health and wellness.
I’m also an advocate of time spent outside, and believe that walking in nature is hugely beneficial (and especially therapeutic when spent with a dog). After our initial in-person consultation, follow-up appointments could happen on a leisurely walk through the neighbourhood in the Comox Valley, on a trail hike, via Skype, or back in my home treatment studio.
A commitment to the planet:
The Earth is our home, garden, kitchen and sanctuary, she sustains us all. There is no Planet B. With that in mind, I blend all of my own products, and my focus is on individual custom blends. This means less waste and each product is fresh with no preservatives. The products I formulate for you follow these guidelines:
- Sustainable & Organic (when possible) Essential and Carrier Oils
- Zero Synthetics
- Sustainable Packaging with Minimal Plastic
- Reflective of Me - don't expect fancy packaging, but you'll get all of my dedication and positivity in everything I blend
My first round of education led me to attain my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Biological Sciences, and the foundation these provided I am truly thankful for. Because of my background in biology and my understanding of current issues surrounding climate change, my practice is centred around sustainability for the sake of Mother Earth.
