Aromatherapist Cha Roberts
My aromatherapy introduction occurred while a student at the Finger Lakes School of Massage (FLSM).
I was invited to join the staff there, after graduation, and eventually became part of the teaching staff, first in Swedish Massage, Hydrotherapy and Essential Oils for over 10 years.
As a Certified Holistic Aromatherapist, I have formed a partnership with Iveta Dervay, after creating AromaEducators. We offer 1- and 2-day Introductory Aromatherapy workshops, and 3-hour talks on various aspects of essential oils. Our goal is to "Educate one Drop at a Time" about the safe and effective use of Essential Oils for personal body care, the therapeutic use for conditions that are usually treated with over-the-counter remedies; use in household products; stress relief, pain relief and more.
The study of Essential Oils is fascinating, fun, intellectually stimulating and deeply satisfying: there is a vast amount of evidenced-based information about the therapeutic use for health. In our classes we generally create products using Essential Oils, which students get to take home and use. Not only is this fulfilling but they also learn how to make household cleaners, body products, and more, which can be passed on to family and friends. This is a wonderful way to offer your family and friends products as a way to live more naturally and healthfully with organic and high-quality ingredients.
Another aspect of my practice is to create and formulate signature essential oil blends for the spa industry. The most rewarding work has been to work with clients who have been treated with radiation for extended periods and to help bring relief for them.
I am fortunate to have studied and continue to study with Andrea Butje of Aromahead Institute, Rhiannon Harris of EORC. I continue to attend advanced classes, lectures and workshops with them and others in the aromatherapy community.
