Aroma Notes

Aroma Notes – Aromatherapy Blog All About My Journey As An Aromatherapist

Aroma Notes began back in August 2016, while studying to be an aromatherapist, when my daughter came to visit from England. I didn’t realize at the time that she had been watching my every move as I worked towards certification.

I did wonder though, why she kept telling me to take pictures of everything I made and write down all the ideas that I shared with her continuously.

She really is lovely to talk to and one of the few people that has always listened with complete patience as I chatted, without end, about all my hopes and dreams.

I love what I do, but I am not so enthusiastic about documenting my every move “socially.” My daughter on the other-hand, is brilliant at it, as so many young people are.

Don’t get me wrong, I am extremely computer-literate and love all the digital what-nots. Just not so great at remembering the hashtags, the pictures, the memes and the never-ending stream of things to do.

Aromatherapy Blog for Mum by Daughter

Well, one day I came in from work and “Surprise,” my lovely daughter presented me with “Aroma Notes,” on her phone.

As I looked through the website, read the blog posts she had written, and saw the love she had put into this truly amazing thing (all before I had time to cook dinner), I was filled with, well, love, tears, joy, and everything else you can think of.

Today, I am somewhat better at this aromatherapy blog thing. The hashtags, the pictures, the memes and the never-ending stream of things to do, but I would never be here without my lovely daughter by my side, fondly known as eCherie82.

I hope you enjoy the Aroma Notes WE share along the way …
