We all have people we meet along the way, connect with and know we adore. As we share what we are up to we create a vibration and lock into areas of compatibility.
Michael has been providing essential oils to Adoratherapy since the beginning.We've only met in person once, many years ago but Michael made an impact on me with his knowledge, directness and confidence. He had many ideas about aromatherapy, but also about business, an entrepreneur himself for many years.
Over the years I have come to trust Michael, and him me, I believe and we have had the opportunity to go beyond our business selves to share our vulnerabilities and opportunities for personal growth. Michael is wise.
As you will see, we adore Michael. As a matter of fact he is truly a foundational piece of our business. Michael embodies the Root Chakra, The earth, of course he does working everyday with mother nature's nectars.
Q: Tell us a little bit about you, your company and your company's mission.
A: Originally from England and have been in the US for over 40 years. I have been engaged full-time in Aromatherapy since 1987. I have no background in plant sciences, chemistry, botany, distillation, formulation, or perfumery. I am self-taught for the most part. The French Medical Aromatic Model was and is the foundation of my education. I have trained with some of the leading pioneers in aromatherapy including Dr Daniel Penoel, Pierre Franchomme, Kurt Schnaubelt, Marcel Lavabre and John Steele.
I have presented classes worldwide to over 50,000 students one class at a time. I have over 100,000 hours invested in essential oil understanding and formulation. Over $6 million in sales.
Q. Tell us about Your company
A: My Company is the Laboratory of Flowers based in Virginia. My company name is the merging of science and botany together which translates into finding authentic essential oils that are the best examples of what nature brings that when blended together provide blends that are effective, true, and smell great.

A: My faith, determination, commitment, consistency, passion, and wisdom are my superpowers but above all is my heart and my capacity to love, my reverence for nature and all those who seek my counsel and expertise.
Q: What are your rituals for self-care, healing or de-stressing? Is there a special place you go?
A: First and foremost, I take a morning and evening bath mixed with Epson salts, some bubbles, and essential oils. I rise early and go to bed sooner than later, eat small nutritious meals, made fresh, drink plenty of water, supplements when necessary, and fresh air, sunshine, and small amounts of exercise. I eat according to my activity level. I love biking, walking, hiking, and kayaking. I sing often, pray much, apply one or two drops of random essential oils to my hands and inhale and rub on my body as often as necessary. And most importantly I connect through community, friendship, and interpersonal relationships. I love hugs and sharing how I feel daily with those I love.
Q: With which Chakra do you most identify and why?
A: The most important chakra for me is earth. My Chinese 5 element is water, and my 9 Star Ki astrology is earth. I work with liquids, am sensitive, feeling driven, and intuitive. Earth contains water when I need to be in my body and be grounded which is always.
