Who is the Aromatherapy Contessa?

Hello – I’m Susan and I am fascinated and passionate about all things aromatic.  I am eager to share what I’ve learned over the past 20 years and I embrace learning from other enthusiasts.  I love creating aromatic blends with essential oils whether for my Arlys Naturals product lines, for fun, or for customer special orders.  I’m drawn into the veil of mystery that nature has provided through these living plants, their aromatic properties, and also their natural healing properties.

I have had the good fortune to travel extensively and source many materials direct from small artisans, farms, and distilleries, having met many lasting friends along this path.  As an International Aromatherapist and Consultant, I’ve had the opportunity to study with Dr. Daniel Penoel, Dr. Kurt Schnabelt, and Robbie Zeck, ND, among the beautiful lavender fields in Provence, France.  That was truly an amazing, magical, immeasurable experience!

Touching the lives of people through the complementary therapy known as “aromatherapy,” especially cancer patients, is definitely personally rewarding.  It is my intention to emphasize the delight and pleasures of Aromatherapy by increasing your knowledge and awareness of the physical and psychological benefits of essential oils.  To me, it is a lifestyle that I’m delighted to share with my friends, family, and customers.
