Essential Oils are a natural remedy for the busy-ness of our times. Nature always heals us and brings us back to balance, harmony, wonder, awe and joy. I create healing blends for your specific needs and teach you how to use them to relax and restore.
The Botanical world feeds us, provides oxygen for us, and gives us the medicines to heal our bodies, the beauty to heal our minds and the essences to heal our souls. With over 250,000 known species, the plant world is the second largest population on the Plant. Species range from the tiny green mosses to giant trees.
Aromatherapy, also known as Essential Oil Therapy, is the art and science of extracting, through steam distillation or other means, the aromatic essences from blossoms, barks, roots, leaves, and seeds to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify and strengthen physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s natural healing process.
Essential oil’s are the immune system of the plant, because of the stress they endure by the steam distillation or other forms of extraction, they released their own protective saps/extracts, which become what we call an essential oil, because they are essential for the survival of that plant.

Flower essences are made from the flowering part of the plant, which uniquely address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. The first 38 flower remedies were formulated by a British physician, Dr. Edward Bach, in the 1930’s, today many gardens are producing new essences from other plant species, especially the Flower Essence Society in Nevada City California.
“To understand how flower essences work requires a recognition that the human being is more than a physical body, but also incorporates a ‘body’ of life energy, a ‘body’ of sensitivity and feelings, and a spiritual essence or Self. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants, which interact with these subtle bodies of the human being, and evoke specific qualities within us. We can say that they work in a similar way to inspirational music or art, which carry meaning through the vehicle of sound or light, while the flower essences work through the medium of water.” – Taken from the flower essence society website
