Graduate: Mindy MacLaren
I started Sweet & Woodsy Aromatherapy in November, 2008. It began as an essential oils business offering consultations and all natural- cleaning products. I am still in the process of deciding what kind of services I want to offer. I currently make and sell products, including baby products, teach classes on baby care, cleaning, and aromatherapy in general, and I am a contributing writer to the website www.hipmomsgogreen.com. My website is in the works and I hope to sell various products in the near future. I have spoken to groups about aromatherapy as part of Gilda's Club Retreat & Spa Day. As I have two children, my time is fairly limited so I have discontinued consultations. I enjoy what I'm doing with Sweet & Woodsy with the free time I have and look forward to doing more as my girls get older.
I am 39 years old and reside in Upstate New York with my husband and twin one year old daughters. I first learned about aromatherapy in the early 1990s while I was in esthetics school in Boston; it immediately caught my attention! Around 2005, I became interested in learning how to live a chemical/pesticide-free life and came back to aromatherapy. I completed the Aromatherapy Certification Program in November 2008, the anatomy & physiology on-line course, and attended the Teacher Training in Sarasota in April, 2009. These were 3 of the best decisions I have made in my life! My interests are nature & photography, herbs & essential oils, yoga, and babies!
