Aromatherapy, as a complete practice, draws on combining a variety of aromatic substances into single fragrances known as synergies. In its truest expression, aromatherapy is the practice of creating particular blends to address an individual’s specific healing needs and facilitate the body’s innate ability to heal itself.
Bio-Energetic Healing encompasses a vast number of variations and techniques including: ‘Laying of Hands’, practiced pre and post Christ era, ‘Reiki’, and Therapeutic Touch’, among others. These different terms all require the specific intention of the healer to invoke or channel the universal life force, known as ‘Chi’ in China, ‘Prana’ in India and ‘Reiki’ in Japan. These modalities seek to energize and balance in a holistic manner, addressing physical, emotional and spiritual queries. Just as a mother instinctively places her hands on her child after a fall, there types of healing provide the comfort of caring touch as well as healing energy.
Often times the question arises, ”But how does it really work”? To answer this we first turn to science. As we began to move away from the principals of Newtonian Physics, such as separation and finite law, the early 19th century found new concepts upon which to explain the human dynamic, such as Field Theory and the Theory of Relativity. These groundbreaking discoveries introduced us to the idea that matter and energy are interchangeable.
In 1998, I was working for a cable TV company, as a front line customer service representative. The job itself was not difficult, had some decent perks; and great people to work with, yet I just couldn't shake the feeling that there was something more. It was a small voice growing over time and speaking of a greater calling and as I spent some evenings gazing up at the heavens watching the sunset on Cape Cod, I felt a pull to create something that would serve the greater humanity.
Aromatherapy is perhaps one of the most effective ways to manage stress. It provides the user with a gentle treatment and a feeling of control over our own well being offering a sense of self empowerment and a deeper connection to our true nature. The available methods vary, ranging from bath products, body oils, room sprays, creams, and diffusers. Managing stress requires, however, more than simply the purchase and application of a product.
Choosing to be responsible for our own health requires us to listen to the best guide we have on hand - ourselves. This responsibility asks us to listen to our own body, becoming accustomed to its signals and needs. Diet and nutrition are critical components to this process as are the needs for emotional balance and support, we must make the time for the relationships and experiences that nourish and support our optimum selves.
Feng shui for your mood and your environment
In the mid to late 90’s I worked in front line customer service for cable TV. Often times, when folks would have an interruption in their television service, they would get VERY upset. When they left that negative, heavy energy was still present and it carried that unpleasant, heavy feeling to my co-workers and myself. Corporate America in the mid to late 90's was certainly not a place for burning sage, incense or candles and so I decided to create an Aromatherapy formula with essential oils derived from herbs that had traditionally been used for cleansing and purification such as sage, lemon, rosemary and peppermint. To this I infused diamond gem elixir for diamond has the highest transmutational frequency for clearing. We began using it in the office and suddenly people left and right wanted to purchase it and a new product was born.
This past August ADORAtherapy®, a leader in aromatherapy and essential oil, had the pleasure of attending the NY NOW tradeshow at New York’s Javitz Center. It was the first time we attended the show and we were thrilled!

How One Woman Came to Her "Senses" and Built a Thriving Aromatherapy Business
In her early twenties, Adora Winquist uprooted her life.
For the past several years, she'd worked in frontline customer service for cable TV. When people came in and their TV didn't work they would get upset. Some would explode in a fit of rage and then leave, but the negative energy they left behind hung in the air.
"It was still tangible. The heaviness really affected myself and my coworkers, but because it was corporate America we couldn't burn incense or candles or sage."
"I thought: I want to do something about this," said Winquist.
So she started doing research on herbs that had been traditionally used for cleansing and purification and came up with an aromatherapy formulation for the office.
"I brought it into the office and we started using it and was like, wow, this really works!"
People started asking to purchase it, and it took on a life of its own.

Once we realize that we are what we create, our focus begins to shift. We start to evaluate our words, actions and as importantly, our thought processes with the affirmation that to live life in love, non-judgment, healing and forgiveness is truth. This is the ALL. We are divinity and we are perfection. As co-creators and creators, the possibilities are endless. Limitation does not exist, unless you will it, after all free will does prevail. Do you choose to live your life in mastery or exist in a world of hopelessness and helplessness, as a perpetual victim? There is always a choice. Every time we berate and admonish a colleague, friend, family member or stranger, we are living in disempowerment. For it is only in our self-judgment that we stand, encountering our own reflection in those before us. By letting judgment and fear control us, we are denying that spark of divinity that is so brightly lit within.
Aromatherapy transforms mood and feelings! When scents are breathed into the olfactory system, triggering the limbic system, which in turn triggers memories in the brain. The challenge in the art & science of aromatherapy, is to choose the best scents to trigger the desired mood and feelings.
