Well, it's been a long while since anything has been posted here & I thought this may be a good time to provide an update to everyone. The coronavirus pandemic really threw this business for a loop, which seems to be a common story with many small and large businesses alike. I made the choice not to promote my services and products (including essential oils) during this time simply because there has been so much uncertainty about covid-19's behaviors, symptoms, and effects. Nature provides many supportive measures we can use to maintain healthy functioning, but it's appropriate to step back and assess new information in unprecedented situations such as a pandemic. I am not a fan of just throwing essential oils at an issue in hopes of finding something that seems to help. That would be irresponsible and has high potential to cause harm on many levels. The health and safety of my clients will always come first, period.
I am slowly creating a plan to re-open for normal business, including consultations, product sales, and classes. I am still determining the best method to make this happen in an efficient manner. I have relocated since my last blog post, so this creates some logistical issues especially since I do not presently have an office or retail location. Most vendor events (festivals, fairs, etc.) have been canceled, which further limits my ability to reach clients and customers. The most logical choice will be to offer services and products online, so this is something I will be planning in the weeks ahead.
I have some great ideas for new product offerings and encourage any suggestions or requests from customers! Please keep in mind that I also offer custom products (such as salves, balms, essential oil blends, mineral bath salts, etc.) tailored to a client's specific needs and/or preferences.
Finally, I'd like to share that I've decided to work toward my Registered Aromatherapist (RA) designation through the Aromatherapy Registration Council. This is a big step requiring the successful completion of a professionally-administered exam, and it has been one of my biggest goals since I first decided to pursue aromatherapy as a calling. Visit and explore the Aromatherapy Registration Council's website to learn more about what it means to be a Registered Aromatherapist.
That pretty much wraps up this update! I'd like to thank everyone who is reading this, since your interest in my business is literally what gives me the determination to move forward in these uncertain times.

Take care and stay well!
