Meet the Team

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.  Each essential oil is poured just for you and every product is carefully custom blended, by hand, with you in mind, serving it up with your name on it. Your Blending Bartenders are an experienced team of Registered Aromatherapists, Student Aromatherapists, and Aromatherapy Assistants, who's attention and care is reflected in the essence of your blends, the comfort of your services and your overall experience.

Welcome to The Blending Bar. Welcome to You. Welcome Home.
