Part 3: And so Functional Aromatherapy® was born!

Part 3: And so Functional Aromatherapy® was born!

My husband likes to send me memes. It’s his way of picking me up on a bad day or to kick my ass into gear when needed.

As I was in the middle of my studies I received this from him:

Quote: They told me I'd never get this far. They were right, I got further.

I finally was able to tell the doctor what I was doing, and though at first he placated me like a child who just learned there were stars in the sky, I was making strides.

I hadn’t COMPLETELY gotten him to buy in yet, it was going to take a lot more work to make my cynical husband a true believer, but he wasn't as close minded as before.

I did enough to register for my Registered Aromatherapist (RA) Exam. It was still some time off, but now I had that first goal to attain.

I started studying Latin names, chemical constituents and the like. Fun stuff, right?

I knew my husband was bending when he started to ask for products to further help his patients, I trained my office girls to start taking over my tasks at our integrative medicine practice and holed myself up my lab.

I felt like a mad scientist and it was AMAZING!

He asked me to make him something for toenail fungus. I thought this was a somewhat easy request, little did I know what it would lead to.

A few days after I made the blend (see recipe below) my husband called me….

Him: “What did you do?”

Me: “What now?” (Already exasperated, cause some days that's what he does to me.)

Now he’s huffy. “You cured a toenail fungus!" (Another win!)

“Well, of course I did.” I said. I started laughing. I wasn’t in trouble this time.

It was finally time to put Functional Aromatherapy into full effect.

1 ml of essential oil example

Functional Aromatherapy® Toenail fungus Oil

  • 12 drops of Clove Bud
  • 6 drops of Green Myrtle
  • 6 drops of Litsea Cubea (May Chang)
  • Carrier oil of your choice
  • 1 oz glass bottle

Add drops to bottle, and finish off with carrier oil. Apply a drop to infected area a couple times a day.

Music is My Love and Blend Language
Music is My Love and Blend Language

On the last day of class, we finished up the custom blends we had created for our clients that week, and were tasked with using Blossoming Heart blending tools from Robbie Zeck to create a special blend for our partners.

Recently, one of my best friends told me that music was my love language. That was a very profound statement to me when I realized the truth of it. I learned that week that a big part of my self-care, the world of the week for us, was sitting in my music room listening to my records.
