A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Harvest to Hydrosol book

The book is a very comprehensive and thorough overview of hydrosols from a distillers perspective and also for proper usage, storage and understanding the properties of each plant distilled. I distill my own hydrosols and the book has helped me to refine my distillation process, while learning more about hydrosols as an overview. I would highly recommend this book, both for experienced distillers and beginners alike. Very much worth the investment in learning!
