“Family Aromatherapy First Aid essentials”
Monday, Sep 20th and Wednesday, Sep 22th by Ana Chapman
Ana Chapman Wellness Advocate since 2014. Born in Toronto Canada and my parents are from El Salvador. Growing up in a Latino home my mom would always tell me stories about my Abuela and shared beautiful remedies from El Salvador. This has always sparked an interest in learning about natural remedies. I partnered with dōTERRA in 2014 and started learning Aromatherapy. I became an instructor of the AromaTouch Technique and have taught many wellness advocates as well as different health practitioners who are enthusiastic about using aromatherapy. I am furthering my studies in aromatherapy through Aromahead Institute. And continue to educate many people on how to use essential oils in their homes. I personally love making different self-care products to keep toxins away from my home. Especially when it comes to my children licking the floor, I want to make sure all my household cleaners are toxic-free! I love caring for my family using a more natural approach. It is empowering and it has helped me through many nights with sick kiddos too! I am grateful to God that we have these beautiful gifts of the earth! I look forward to meeting many of you!
