Two weeks ago I got a letter in the mail letting me know that I had passed the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists final exam which meant that I am now officially a Certified Aromatherapist. It was a huge wait lifted off my chest and I am glad that the work i have put in has paid off.
I will soon be posting all my fees for consultations but for now I am going to enjoy the moment that has resulted from a whole lot of hard work.

Almost one year ago I went back to school to become a certified aromatherapist. I had been reading into essential oils and was amazed at all the information out there and expecially how much false or dangerous information existed. Going back to school has allowed me to increase my knowledge and understanding of essential oils and allow me to use them safely.
While they are natural that in no way means that they are harmless and when not used properly can cause problems. I have much more respect for the oils then before starting my training. Oils can be a huge part of your life and your medicine cabinet but you need to do your homework. Your best option is talking with a certified aromatherapist. Be skeptical of companies that are trying to make money off of oils especially MLM companies.

The most common question I get asked is how I got started in making body care items. The answer to that question is pretty simple - I had to. My son Rylan was born 2011 and came out sick and stayed sick for some time. We eventually discovered that he was allergic to corn and all corn derivatives which we had no idea meant almost the entire world. After discovering the allergy in Rylan we learned my husband had the same one (he had spent the last 25 years with very poor health).
In the process of trying to find a deodorant that did not make him sick I decided that it was time to learn how to make one with safe for us ingredients that would not cause a reaction. My first product that I ever created was the Citrus Breeze Deodorant and from there it took off. Family members started to ask for deodorants and that is how the business was born. The second product I ever created was Little Boo's rub to help Rylan through cold and flu season. Since that time every product that has been created has either been for a need for someone in the family or a request from a customer who was having problems finding something that did not make them sick.
I usually do not look at Little One Naturals as a business but rather as a passion. I love working with various ingredients to make new items and love it even more when they actually work. I try to put this passion and love into everything that I create!
