I have lived in the Okanagan for near my whole life and travelled the world exploring diverse cultures and their divine medicine. I have met and been taught by many of the greats such as Deepak Chopra, Don Miguel Ruiz, Steven Farmer, Heather Ash Amara, and plenty more. My passion is earth and all the life within. We are all growing together and I wish to share the journey with you as one.With an increasing awareness of ourselves on a deeper and spiritual level we discover who we really are and what we are truly capable of. There is a system of energy flowing through us, connecting us all to each other, the earth and the universe. This is life force, source consciousness, our true being.

Aquarius Aromatherapy & Soap was established to teach soapmaking, bath balm making, how to make lotions and creams using all natural products, and blending of essential oils. It was during our teaching stage that we realized that raw materials needed to make these products were difficult to find, packaged in too large of quantities, and often too expensive. Natural products have a limited shelf life, and many of our students found that they were not able to use all the raw materials they purchased. We set out to source raw materials, to offer them for sale at affordable prices, and reasonable in quantity. Globally, we found many sources for raw materials; we choose only those that met our standards, products we could stand behind. Web Site: Aquarius Aromatherapy
