About

My name is Heidi, my Spirit name is Amaru, an iridescent winged serpent able to transcend earth and sky dwelling in subterranean places. I have always known my nature to be quite literal. I also am a double Libra on the cusp of Scorpio and so I can dive deep into those lunar places and also fly high to angelic realms! Sweet Serpent/Amaru is all about releasing, shedding, letting go and is down to earth in a deep way, AND what a beautiful gift to have wings too!!!!! I absolutely resonate with my spirit name gifted to me in ceremony by my sweetest teacher Christine Selda with Shamanic Yoga Institute. I have cycled the medicine wheel as a participant and assistant many times since 2009. I am a lover of nature and all her beauty and abundance. I aspire to always walk lightly, giving offerings to the land, praying for balance, reciprocity and right relationship with all my relations. My blood lineage and ancestors are from Denmark and Ireland. I am diving deeper into my roots, my bloodline deeply ingrained in Europe. I currently reside as a settler and guest on the unceded territory of the Squamish Nation and Coast Salish people. 

 

My love for scent began early in my childhood with a scratch and sniff Christmas Storybook about a bear family celebrating Christmas, the pages filled with Peppermint, Ginger, Cinnamon, Sweet Orange, and Pine. I still have that book, it is scratched dry. In my pre-teen years I had a photo album filled with a scratch and sniff sticker collection. Many of my friends had them too. We would trade stickers and get together to admire and check out who had which smelly sticker. I'm pretty sure when I dig out my keepsake box in the depths of storage, I will find it. 

 

I was introduced to Aromatherapy and Essential Oils during my pregnancy with my son in 1994. My entire birth plan was orchestrated to include them. I worked at Escents and was offered a training in Aromatherapy. I did not know then, the deep connection and lifelong friendship that would form with Jade Shutes, founder of the School for Aromatic Studies. I worked, studied and apprenticed, eventually becoming certified as a Practicing Aromatherapist in 1997. Jade introduced me to the World of Aromatherapy and Herbalism, inviting me to many NAHA conferences, and connecting me with dozens of colleagues, teachers and mentors that continue to inform me to this very day.

The Elemental Synergies

Early in 2000, I created my first four synergies Water, Air, Earth and Fire. The intention was to invoke my interpretation of the inherent wisdom of the element into each synergy. I chose essential oils that elicit the healing benefit of the element.

Medicine Wheel Essential Oil Blends

The Four Directions of the Medicine Wheel are connected with an archetype. Each animal archetype has wisdom to share as well as methodology of seeing and being.

I created the Medicine Wheel Essential Oils to assist in this methodology also known as Perceptual Shifting, a way to see and be.
