Welcome to the World of Aromatherapy!

Imagine using the vital power of plant and flower essences to heal the body!

Aromatherapy is not just something that smells pretty; it has a host of therapeutic benefits for the body, mind, and spirit and can be used to treat everything from back pain to imbalances resulting from past traumas.

The power of plant and flower essences to heal

Aromatherapy means healing thru scent; it’s an ancient art of healing used since beginning of time. Essential oils were used by prophets, kings, priests, emperors and pharaohs from different cultures and times, to promote health, beauty, youthfulness and protection.

They were given to Christ and there are more than 500 references of them throughout the Bible. Modern science continues to rediscover the healing power of essential oils, and we want to share this information with you!!!

Aromatherapy supports our physical, mental, and spiritual health

I myself rediscovered the amazing world of aromatherapy 11 years ago. I have a B.A. in Slavic Languages and still do some occasional work in that field, but when I was suddenly introduced to and experienced these lovely aromas and their powerful benefits – my life took an unexpected turn!

I LOVE the fact that essential oils can support us and help us on EVERY level: the physical, emotional, spiritual and mental.

I have been reading, learning, sharing and teaching what I have learned and it has been truly a great and fulfilling experience!!!
