I find comfort in Aromatherapy. For the past 25 years, I have been captivated by the enchanting essence of essential oils, and I'd love to share some of my personal journey with you. Aromatherapy has become an integral part of my life, guiding me through the ups and downs, and nurturing my soul with its soothing embrace.
1999 - first steps on the road
As a young and determined Mum of two, I found myself facing the challenges of single parenthood with a 6-year-old and a 2-year-old. Eager to find a way to provide for my precious family, I sought an opportunity that aligned with my desire to be present for them as much as possible. That's when I was introduced to a Western Australian Aromatherapy business that was on the lookout for individuals to share their knowledge of oils through party plan events.
With boundless enthusiasm and curiosity, I embarked on a journey of discovery, diving into the world of aromatherapy. In those days before Google made things easier, I eagerly borrowed books from the library, hungrily absorbing any information I could find. I was determined to learn more and empower myself with the wisdom of essential oils.
Over the following years, my dedication led me to pursue Certificate I and Certificate II in Aromatherapy, further enriching my knowledge and passion for the healing power of essential oils. Even now, after all these years, I still find myself instinctively reaching for the oils as my first response to soothe and support my and my family's wellbeing.
During a challenging time in my life, I discovered the enchanting allure of ylang ylang. Its sweet, floral scent became my trusted companion, offering solace and self-compassion when I needed it most. Whenever life felt overwhelming, and emotions ran high, ylang ylang whispered to my spirit, gently urging me to find peace within.
In moments of uncertainty and anxiety, I found refuge in the soothing blend of ylang ylang, patchouli, and sweet orange. It is now found in the Sensual Body Butter and the Sensual Body Lotion with Magnesium Magic. This calming elixir wrapped me in a warm embrace, gently easing my worries and allowing me to find balance amidst the chaos. I still go to this combination
when I need to come back home to myself.
As a lover of knowledge and a seeker of clarity, I discovered the invigorating synergy of rosemary, peppermint, and lemon. This vibrant blend awakened my senses, sharpened my mind, and empowered me to dive deep into my passions. I still love this when I am studying or needing strong mental focus.
In my pursuit of inner peace and serenity, sandalwood, frankincense, and vetiver became my faithful allies. This grounding combination cocooned me in a sense of tranquility, reminding me to be gentle with myself and embrace the beauty of imperfection.
Natural Skin Care
When I first ventured into creating natural skincare, my primary intention was to provide a perfect vehicle for the magic of essential oils. As my journey unfolded, my skincare line began to develop its own unique personality and identity, yet at its core, it remained deeply infused with the essence of aromatherapy.
At every step of the way, the powerful spirit of aromatherapy became an integral part of my formulations, seamlessly blending with the natural ingredients to create products that are truly magical. The harmonious dance between these potent drops and natural ingredients birthed a skincare range that I am proud of.
Through the alchemy of aromatherapy, each product carries the transformative power of essential oils, offering not just physical benefits but also emotional and spiritual healing. It's a celebration of the boundless wonders that can be unlocked when we align with the gifts of the Earth.
Essential oils in Rituals
As a lover of routine and ritual, I have discovered the transformative power of aromatherapy in infusing magic into my daily practices. Essential oils have become my steadfast companions, not only enhancing my personal energy but also playing a pivotal role in manifesting my desires through the law of attraction.
Incorporating aromatherapy into my rituals has been a beautiful way to set intentions, create sacred spaces, and anchor my soul in moments of self-care. One of my favourite self-care rituals includes pausing for a few deep breaths, inhaling the scent of my personal essential oil blends.
In this sacred space, I invite positive energy to flow, manifesting my aspirations and aligning my mind, body, and spirit. I anoint my pulse points with the blend, invoking feelings of self-love and empowerment. As the aroma envelops me, I visualise my dreams becoming reality, embracing the abundance of the universe with an open heart.
I love Aromatherapy
My personal journey with aromatherapy over the years has taught me the profound impact of self-care and the transformative power of essential oils. They have been more than just aromatic companions; they have been soul-soothing guides during life's beautiful and challenging moments. Each drop of essential oil has held my hand through the chapters of my life, reminding me to be kind to myself, to embrace my emotions, and to find strength in vulnerability. As I continue to explore the world of aromatherapy, I am filled with gratitude for the gifts it has bestowed upon me.
