Since then, I have earned a Certification in Aromatherapy and thinking… Continue reading Sharing Essential Oils Responsibly
What do aromatherapists do when they catch a cold? I mean, aside than writing about it when I should be resting! To be honest, I don't even know how I caught this cold ( I don't like to even admit it!!).

I've just added my consultation and custom blend information to my website! It only took three and a half months... My main conundrum is, how do I approach this as a business, with fees, and expenses that I must be able to cover (and recover), while still helping as many people as I can?
