Passion and love for essential oils and aromatherapy evolved following my search for cancer pain relief for a loved one. My mom passed in 1994 but what I had learned I wanted to share. I started using essential oils and sharing with family and friends. In 2010, I witnessed the benefits of aromatherapy work on persons who attended my public events (The Little Pink Party, ACE Diabetes etc.) A number of persons were writing testimonials on my website. I then connected with Robert Tisserand on Linkedin in 2013 after reading his bio. Once he accepted my friend request. I asked the question, "Can you recommend a school to get my Aromatherapy Certification?" His response was Aromahead Institute with Andrea Butje.
