WORKSHOPS

“The craft so long to learn.”
~ Hippocrates

Workshops

Learn how to incorporate essential oils into your everyday life for health, beauty and well-being.
In my workshops, I align with the group’s dynamics or the individual student. This means that no workshop is ever the same.
Together we will explore aromatherapy, essential oils, the natural world, the human body and psyche.

Holistic Skincare

“What happens when people open their hearts? They get better” ~ Haruki Murakami

My philosophy is to treat skin holistically as the skin is a reflection of what is happening in our emotional life and essential oils have the potential to shift one’s energy as a medicine on its own – not just for the skin but for the spirit. As plants do not discriminate where, when and how chosen to share their healing gifts. Self care as an act of love.
