One of the biggest problems my clients face – is understanding what it takes to develop an aromatherapy program within best practices of Clinical Aromatherapy. Like many things, you don't know, what you don't know, until you begin!
I know what it takes to implement a professional, cost effective program in large and small organizations.
In health care settings safety and intelligent use of essential oils is critical. Utilizing the expertise of a Certified Aromatherapist ensures proper selection of oils to use, safety protocols, and a well thought out and successful program within the best practices of this unique therapy.

Does Aromatherapy really work?
I can confidently answer - Yes! Aromatherapy works! With skillful use and proper training for you staff, using quality oils, carefully selected for your population, with appropriate and safe methods of administration.
The overall goal is to simply reduce stress and reduce the use of drugs. Stress manifests in mood and sleep disruptions, muscle tension and pain, and some digestive complaints to name a few.
Aromatherapy talks to our limbic system through its own language of chemistry. Essential oils are molecules with messages. Our brains read and understand the plants language of simple chemistry. For example, consider how we respond to the smell of fire with a bio chemical change in our bodies. Our nervous systems respond by sending a hormonal response of increased adrenaline also known as fight or flight.
In this same way our smell receptors read the messages from essential oils molecules. Depending on the essential oil we are smelling, our autonomic nervous system responds accordingly through our hormonal response system releasing appropriate responses. Increased levels of oxytocin and other relaxing feel good hormones are released. Smell is a powerful influencer of our moods and emotions!
