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; Amy offers a unique blend of workshops (like her “Success with Integrity” Program and “The Self-Care Series”), speaking engagements & private sessions that incorporate essential oils, yoga, mindfulness, EFT Tapping, and more. In 2017, she expanded her team and opened The Blending Bar's first brick and mortar shop in the heart of Maple Ridge. Amy also teaches Yoga with a focus on Relaxation & Self- Care.
