"Smelling a plant is connecting two souls. With an open heart we receive its fragrance and listen to its story. Only then we can discover what it has to offer us."
Joanne's passion for pure and natural fragrances came about naturally
As a child Joanne was already fascinated by Mother Nature's fragrances. When walking through the forest she kept on touching the trees, the plants and the leaves and she enjoyed the abundance of forest aromas. Enchanted by their diversity, she tried out various ways to capture them. According to Joanne, every plant has its own soul and sends out a message when its aroma floats through the air. This message can move us in many ways if we allow it to.
Inevitably, Joanne got trained to be an aroma therapist after running her own certified movement and massage practice for fifteen years. With a lot of passion she focussed on bringing and keeping balance in her client's lives. No wonder her motto is to live from the heart and live life your way. Essential oils inspire her to do this. In workshops and training she has introduced a lot of people to Mother Nature's world of fragrances, and inspired them to apply essential oils in their daily lives.
For the past ten years Joanne kept on extending her knowledge on essential oils; the production process, quality, aroma experience and aroma development. As an aroma expert she is therefore regularly asked to give aroma presentations or masterclasses. As a trainer and consultant she uses her expertise for cosmetic and aroma therapy brands.
Joanne will take you on a trip to the ‘World of Fragrances’ in a creative and passionate way. All of her presentations offer an interesting mix of experience, knowledge and inspiration.
Living and working with essential oils is a way of enjoying fragrances like Mother Nature intended. I wish for everyone to have a fragrant experience, an encounter with nature's resonating beauty. I wish for you to discover how to incorporate this, to enrich your life and work.
Aroma therapy is my way of life. It's my passion to inspire people all over the world and teach them about the safe enjoyment of aromas.
