Amy Reedman is a Registered Aromatherapist and the founder of The Blending Bar. She has been sourcing essential oils from around the world since 2001, when she began studying aromatherapy at Douglas College. Amy is a dedicated self-care guide, who is continually learning new ways to provide tools for others to find peace within themselves. She is a Registered Aromatherapist (RA) and Essential Oil Therapist (EOT) since 2003 and become a Yoga Teacher in 2008, now certified in Hatha, Yin, and Restorative Yoga. Further, she incorporates mindfulness, subtle energy work, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), and Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) into her classes. Amy’s breadth of knowledge and deep caring for others lead her to open The Blending Bar in 2009. She infuses essential oils into her practice, providing a unique blend of classes, private sessions, and workshops online and in the community. Leading group retreats and speaking engagements allows her to dive deeper into the subjects that she loves, while connecting with people at one at a time.
