Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses various parts of natural plant extracts (flower,
bark, leaves or fruits) to improve the health of the body, mind and spirit. It activates the body's energy systems to remove blocks and allow energy to flow in harmony again. By breaking through these energetic blocks, the body's inherent ability to heal itself is also stimulated.
When inhaled, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and significantly impact the amygdala, the primal emotional centre of the brain. When essential oils are applied to the skin they are absorbed and travel around the body via the bloodstream. In this way, they can deliver a range of benefits to the body's systems and organs. Massage increases absorption, as this increases the circulation in that area of the body.
I first connected to the plants and herbs through the intuitive and ancient wisdom of my Grandmother at my family’s farm in Brazil where I spent a lot of my childhood. This knowledge was later further evolved and passed on by my mother, who continues to work with it to this day.
Many of my own and my family’s illnesses were treated and healed through plants harvested at the
farm. Later I decided to improve my skills and learn about herbalism and aromatherapy. I intuitively
connect to the healing power of plants, medicinal herbs, plant essences and other elements of mother earth. I also make my own therapeutic massage oils and sprays to support my clients, friends and family, providing relief and often healing diseases physically and psychologically, while correcting
energetic imbalances during my sessions.
