I firmly believe the effectiveness of essential oils is due to natural plant life harmonizing with human life. Delicate flowers, citrus fruits, seeds, roots, leaves and tree resins can be utilized to treat a wide range of health problems facing people including emotional issues to long term stress that cause many of the chronic degenerative diseases prevalent in our world today. I help to empower individuals and believe that aromatherapy can assist people in gaining control over their inner weather.
