I was introduced to essential oils 17 years ago, as a way to promote healing, health and vitality. The beauty of the aromas and the communion with the energy of the plants always brought about a feeling of deep reverence for the natural world and for myself. During my training as an aromatherapist, I was drawn to the way essential oils could not only provide support in a practical, objective way, but also in how they provided a conduit to connecting to a deeper layer of being.
Using essential oils is both practical and sacred. Understanding the chemistry of each oil is foundational when considering it's therapeutic benefit. For example, the chemical component linalol, found in Lavender, is known to have sedating and anxiety relieving effects. All citrus oils contain the component d-limonene, which is supportive to the immune system.
We can also understand essential oils from an energetic and universal level. It's said that essential oils contain the soul essence of the plant. Frankincense and Sandalwood are sacred oils both historically and because of how they're harvested. When used in a blend, they help us connect to our true nature as a unique expression of the divine. Both science and intuition guide me when creating synergies for healing and support.
Currently I offer virtual aromatherapy sessions only. A typical session begins with conversation on what is up for you in the moment, what you may be feeling physically or emotionally, or something in your present experience that you're facing. I will guide you through a 15 minute(ish) embodiment session to help you connect your internal and external landscapes, bringing anything that is ripe for knowing or feeling into your conscious awareness. The information that arises from these interactions will be my guide for the blends that I create just for you. Each session is approximately 55 minutes, and you'll receive 2 personalized aromatherapy synergies, as well as a recording of the embodiment practice that you can return to anytime you like. To book a session contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Essential oils have helped me slow down, breathe and cultivate a deeper relationship with self-love and realization. I look forward to helping you connect to your own authenticity.
