Welcome to Shining Sun Aromatherapy!
Announcement!! I have decided to retire from teaching our Level 1 Certification course after this year; I will continue to teach our 5 1/2 day Advanced Aromatherapy Retreat with Barry & Cynthia in Arizona at Wisdom of the Earth, as well as private classes and on-line seminars. See the Calendar page of this site for the three remaining Level 1 dates in 2016. It has been a blessing to teach this beautiful class for over 15 years!
Welcome to the world of medicinal aromatherapy…pure, therapeutic-grade plant and tree essences for healing body, mind and spirit. Plant and tree medicines are the original medicine of the planet, and when we use them as the ancients did, we can be whole again…even in this busy and often chaotic world that would deprive us of our authenticity and vibrancy.
I have had the wonderful experience of studying aromatherapy for over 15 years with such accomplished and renowned aromatherapists as Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt of the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy, Dr. Malte Hozzel (France), John Steele (US), and, of course, Barry Kapp, my mentor and business partner. I have also attended numerous symposia and professional development programs in Grasse, FR and throughout the US. I draw upon these academic experiences, my practical experiences from working with clients over the past 15 years, and my intuitive connection with the Plants & Trees to help those interested understand and respect the healing power of the essences, without succumbing to the fear that permeates much of aromatherapy.
This website contains a wealth of information, from newsletters to blog posts to radio interviews and presentations, to sections about essential oils, hydrolats and the common healing properties of different plant parts which yield essential oils. It also provides information that we always tell our students is fundamental in purchasing essential oils or studying aromatherapy…it describes our philosophy of and approach to the practice of medicinal aromatherapy. Knowing your source is a key principle in almost anything you do; in aromatherapy, it is vital.
Shining Sun Aromatherapy (SSA) offers a number of options for either beginning or continuing your journey to health and wholeness via the natural world. As a messenger of the plants and trees, and a passionate believer in their healing power, I would be honored to be a part of your journey.
