Welcome to the world of medicinal aromatherapy…pure, therapeutic-grade plant and tree essences for healing body, mind and spirit.

Ancient accounts that have been passed down, generation to generation, teach us that 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, teaching and practicing aromatherapy for over 20 years.  Among my teachers and mentors are such accomplished and renowned aromatherapists as Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt of the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy, Dr. Malte Hozzel (France), John Steele (US), and, Barry Kapp, my early mentor and my business partner in Wisdom of the Earth essential oils for many years.  Barry retired late in 2019, and I am now the sole owner of Wisdom of the Earth, based in Cornville, AZ.

I have also attended numerous symposia and professional development programs in Grasse (FR), Provence and throughout the US.  I draw upon these academic experiences, my practical experiences from working with a diverse range of clients, 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 about essential oils, hydrolats and the common healing properties of different plant parts which yield essential oils.Throughout, I share stories about my experiences from my many years of using and working with the oils.  My site 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 path to health and wholeness via the natural world.  As a passionate believer in the healing power of the essences, I would be honored to be a part of your journey.
