My interest in Essential Oils began about 20 years ago. I would dabble, and read whatever I could on the subject. But I was working full time (at Half Price Books), and working two part time jobs (as a Wedding DJ and selling items on eBay), so I didn’t have a lot of time.
Fast forward to 2010 when I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I cut back working, and I finally started making all natural cleaning supplies and skin care items.
I figured if I was subjecting myself to large doses of radiation, I wanted to know exactly what was in my skin care and cleaning products.
A lot has changed since 2010. I’m in remission, my husband and I (and three cats) are living in a small town in Wisconsin, and I recently retired after working at the library for 14 years. But not working three jobs makes me feel like I have too much free time, so I want to start giving back to others. I’ve decided to do this by sharing my knowledge and love of making natural health and beauty items.
I am a Certified Aromatherapist through Aromahead Institute, and am currently enrolled to become a Clinical Aromatherapist.
I am also studying with the CommonWealth Center for Holistic Herbalism, on my way to becoming an Herbalist. And I have certificates in Meditation and in Introduction to Natural Health and Healing.
Every time I make an item for my friends, family, myself… and hopefully, now you, it brings me joy to know I am still here, and able to help others in a small way. Each purchase helps to keep this dream alive, and I am truly thankful for every day.
