Nice to Meet You
I'm Sabrina, my venture into becoming a Certified Aromatherapy Health Professional (CAHP) started sooner in my life than I appreciated myself. My realization that I should follow a new path dawned on me when my children were 7 and 10 years old, and my husband and I decided to take our family on a year-long camping adventure around North America. We were both granted a leave of absence from our employers, and in July 2017 we hooked our trailer up to our truck, loaded the kids and dogs in the back and embarked on a journey that would change us all profoundly.
We concentrated on visiting National Parks, Provincial Parks, State Parks and any other wild place we could get to in Canada and the USA. We avoided large cities with all the associated hustle and bustle, and took our time exploring all the natural wonders of this corner of our amazing planet. We lived a slow life, in nature, and spent all our waking hours together. It felt natural and absolutely… wonderful.
During the year away, I asked myself what truly makes me happy. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t unhappy before in my relationships, my life or my job. I feel extraordinarily privileged in our current society to have only suffered slightly with anxiety and the effects of extreme stress. But I’ve watched others around me suffer for years, people I love and am close to, people I want to help find alternative coping strategies to truly experience daily joy and optimal health.
And so I turned to plants and the bountiful medicines they hold. In my first career, I worked for over 12 years in a botanical garden, and plants became my friends and allies. Essential oils are powerful plant compounds with therapeutic benefits that we can use to support our health and wellness.
My desire is to support you along your path towards body, mind and spirit wellness.
What you can expect from me as your Aromatherapy Practitioner
A commitment to your health and wellness:
Book a 1-hour wellness consultation today. We'll take the time for me to get to know you, and your specific health challenges, so that I can recommend the best course of action and individually-formulated products to support you on your path to health and wellness.
I’m also an advocate of time spent outside, and believe that walking in nature is hugely beneficial (and especially therapeutic when spent with a dog). After our initial in-person consultation, follow-up appointments could happen on a leisurely walk through the neighbourhood, on a trail hike, via Skype, or back in the office.
A commitment to the planet:
The Earth is our home, garden, kitchen and sanctuary, she sustains us all. There is no Planet B.
I blend all of my own products, and my focus is on individual custom blends. This means less waste and each product is fresh with no preservatives. The products I formulate for you follow these guidelines:
Sustainable & Organic (when possible) Essential and Carrier Oils
Sustainable Packaging with Minimal Plastic
Reflective of Me - don't expect fancy packaging, but you'll get all of my dedication and positivity in everything I blend
My first round of education led me to attain my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Biological Sciences, and the foundation these provided I am truly thankful for. Because of my background in biology and my understanding of current issues surrounding climate change, my practice is centred around sustainability for the sake of Mother Earth.
