Less than two years ago, essential oils were an unknown to me. I wasn’t much of a natural or green person, so to speak. I never really thought twice about synthetic medications or chemicals, because I have always been a fairly well person. In addition, because of addiction in my family’s past, I have always had a natural aversion to medication.
Two things happened that changed my thought process significantly. First, I had a prolonged, very intense bout of insomnia. I’ve always struggled with sleep issues; in fact, it is one of the few things that I had taken medications for. My health was declining and I started to feel like the lack of sleep was ruining my life. A close friend recommended that I look into essential oils, and she suggested a few oils for me. I tried it, and I was amazed at the results. I use the Silent Night blend to this day. Second, I decided to try an allergy blend for my husband (who is allergic to air; literally, the poor man). He has been on allergy medications for years. He started using the allergy inhaler and has not used Zyrtec a day since.
I really wanted to begin using essential oils MORE, but I found it to be cost prohibitive. When I did find reasonably priced oils, they were not good quality. I also found that the larger (more expensive, name brand) companies were promoting essential oil uses that I believed to be unsafe, based on my research.
It was my love for essential oils coupled with the quest to help others obtain REASONABLY priced, HIGH-quality essential oils, that spurred the birth of Heaven Scent Aroma Shop. I started acquiring a large collection of my own oils and after raving about what the essential oils were doing for our family, many friends would ask me to blend oils for them. A few months later, the passion started to slowly form into this: Heaven Scent Aroma Shop. My love for aromatherapy spurred me to begin study at Aromahead Institute, one of the most highly regarded schools for aromatherapy.
