Happy New Year! I hope you all made it through the chilly holidays with all your fingers and toes. My son went into Christmas vacation with a bit of frost bite but it healed quickly (yay Aromamama!). In case you missed it, I had the best birthday present (next to my engagement ring, of course) show up in the mail box—my certificate! I am now a full-fledged Certified Aromatherapy Health Practitioner. I have great plans for Santéssence this year in terms of therapeutic services and products, and education (both continuing for me and aromanews for you). I hope to work on a new project every week, whether it is a new product or course. If you have any requests or suggestions, please pass them along! I will continue to book massages on Mondays on 13th Avenue, and hope to add a second day by spring. I know the last thing you want to do lately is go out into the cold, but I think a nice relaxing and warming massage is great incentive to brave the elements! Appointments can be booked by calling or texting 306-351-7771. I wish you all the happiness and health you deserve in 2018!
I recently entered a contest to win a pass to the Alliance of International Aromatherapists' annual conference this August at Rutgers University. The contest was run by Nature's Gift, with the caveat that the winner would help their founder and president Marge Clark get around campus and set up their vendor booth. I thought this would be an amazing opportunity to be part of the aromatherapy community and to rub shoulders with some of the vintage aromatherapists who have made aromatherapy what it is today. I am so excited to have been selected as Marge's... assistant? plus one? Girl Friday? Such an honour! I know I will learn more about aromatherapy by attending the conference and spending the weekend with Marge than I have since I decided to become a certified aromatherapist! Thank you Marge and Nature's Gift!
I am just stopping in here quick to say welcome to our bare-bones website and to assure you that Santéssence will be fully operational very soon! Please check back here for site updates, aromatherapy news, specials and other news. Thank you for your patience!
