Aromaste' Clinical Aromatherapy
Kate O'Hara, Clinical Aromatherapist, Essential Oil Educator
I am the owner of a small Aromatherapy business in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. Passionate about alternative healthcare and concerned for my health and the health of my family, I decided to obtain a formal education in Aromatherapy. I graduated from the Aromahead Institute of Essential Oil Studies in Ithaca, NY as a Nationally Certified Clinical Aromatherapist and wish to share my expertise with all who wish to empower themselves. The entrepreneur in me is looking to continue creating my gorgeous 100% VEGAN product line in order that others may benefit from Aromatherapy as I have. I am a stay at home mother of four beautiful children who were my inspiration at the beginning of this journey. In searching for alternative health care I was introduced to essential oils. I intially used them to treat my own anxiety and then I used them to eliminate allergies and help with skin conditions my children had been dealing with. They were so effective I wanted to study essential oil chemistry and learn as much as I could. This began my passion and led me to persue this dream. This business provides a unique service to those seeking environmentally friendly products that are good for our bodies and our environment. All classes will be offered on a sliding scale in order that this information is accessible to everyone. My therapeutic essential oil product line that is 100% VEGAN will be available to help all via my website this fall. My dream is to expand this business from beyond trade shows and craft fairs. My desire is to offer custom therapeutic consultations and workshops. I have paid for my education and financed my business start-up with small business loans thus far. I need your help to allow me to purchase ethically sourced essential oils on a larger scale. They can be quite expensive. I really wish to expand my product line, teach more classes and bring this amazing healing art to all. Thank You. In exchange for your generous contribution I am offering amazing perks.

It will allow me to offer more classes where I discuss the toxic effects of products we use every day. I will continue to empower my students through education to create their own skincare products using essential oils as well as replace the common household toxic cleaners that cause cancer, anxiety, fibromyalgia, allergies, asthma and a mulititude of health problems. I will teach parents how to help themselves and their children effectively through the therapeutic use of essential oils. Knowledge is power and we owe it to ourselves to live long healthy lives free from disease.

I love teaching and I wish to continue to help families struggling with health issues that I eliminated in our family. As a clinician I am able to create effective, affordable, therapeutic products. To those of you who are frustrated with our current health care system, Aromatherapy may be for you in combination with other alternative modalities or by itself.

Essential Oils and Aromatherapy changed my life and enabled me to take care of my anxiety and other health related issues as well. Allergies were eliminated as I created non-toxic products for use with my four children. Throughout my studies I learned how to create non-toxic effective alternatives to replace my cleaning products. I wish to share aromatherapy with others.
