Hello and Welcome to Scent Reflections!

My name is TJ, but you can call me Thea or Jennifer if you prefer.  

Some people might call me a healer, but I prefer to use the word “facilitator” or “educator”. At heart, I am a writer, certified essential oil specialist, herbal enthusiast, and bookworm who enjoys sharing knowledge and resources about using aromatherapy and other alternative medicine modalities to cope with stress.

I’d like to share what I’ve learned with you here.
