Of all the paths I thought I might take, aromatherapy is one of the last I thought I’d ever be walking. Yet here I am.
Most people know me as a professional musician – a music instructor and violist who is a little too fond of atonal sonatas and a little too obsessed with Baroque performance practice.
When they learn I’m an aromatherapist, I’m often faced with dissuading them from the notion that I’ve gone hippy-dippy-trippy while they weren’t looking.
The truth is that aromatherapy really isn’t that far left-field. I was drawn to aromatherapy from a desire to improve my health through natural modalities. Eventually, my interest in supporting the body through alternative means led me towards further study in plant-based healing grounded in science.
As an artist, blending offers me the opportunity to work with my hands and heart – combining intuition, personal study, and creativity into my work.
