Meet the Team

Welcome to The Blending Bar!

We have a truly holistic approach at The Blending Bar. We intend to create a safe and supportive space with products and services that nurture the whole self- physically, emotionally and mentally. Your Blending Bartenders are an experienced team of Registered Aromatherapists, Student Aromatherapists, and Aromatherapy Assistants, whose attention and care is reflected in the essence of your blends, the comfort of your services and your overall experience.

Amy Reedman, Founder & President of The Blending Bar

In 2001, Amy learned what aromatherapy isn't! She began studying aromatherapy that year, with a commitment to educating people about true aromatherapy & the safe use of pure essential oils. In 2011, The Blending Bar became her full-time private practice and in October 2017, her dream of 15 years came true when she opened the doors to The Blending Bar's first brick and mortar space, in the heart of downtown Maple Ridge.

Amy is certified in Hatha, Yin, and Restorative Yoga. As a Registered Aromatherapist, she infuses her love of essential oils into her practice, offering a unique blend of classes, private sessions, workshops, and speaking engagements. Gentle yoga, mindfulness, EFT Tapping, and TRE (Trauma Release Exercises) are just a few of the tools she uses and incorporates into her classes at The Bar and around the Community.
