Hi, I’m so happy to meet you!
Lilygrace Botanicals was born out of my deep love for the natural world. This website serves the purpose of bringing you tools and information for personal empowerment and holistic healing at your fingertips.
My love for plants began when I was a young child; Seeing a pansy and knowing it was so much more than just a flower, always collecting rocks at the beach, and the woods have always been a magical place of refuge for me. I worked beside my mother in the flower beds and helped my parents in the vegetable garden, then continued my studies of Horticulture in high school and college.
My journey took me in other directions by bringing two sons into my life. However, in 1999 my brother died and I had to figure out where I was going when I died. I went to the bookstore to buy books on death and dying but came out with a stack of books on mediumship– which I had never heard of. Those books gave me great comfort to know my brother was never far away and at that point my world opened, and my spiritual journey deepened.
I went to massage school, became an energy worker, studied aromatherapy, flower essences, gem essences, and herbal medicine. I opened my massage practice in 2002 and began my studies in aromatherapy in 2003 with Jade Shute and the IDA (now the New York institute of aromatic studies). I have now been teaching aromatherapy certification courses for over a decade and became involved in Hospice work in 2003 with MultiCare Home Health and Hospice, working as clinical aromatherapist, massage therapist, and reiki practitioner.
I continued my studies in spiritual phytoessencing with Dr. Berkowsky, natural perfumery with Ayala Moriel, became a reiki master, studied cranial sacral therapy, and integrative energy therapy.
I had another big shift in 2006 when I discovered the amazing world of flower and gem essences. I have studied and taught the Australian bush flower essences a company founded by Ian White. I am currently studying with the chestnut school of herbal medicine.
I have been so blessed to have been taught by so many amazing teachers. My life has been enriched by my students and patients. I make flower and gem essences and have formulated many products over the years.
It is now time to share them with you.
Lilygrace botanicals will reflect all my experiences in life. My areas of special interest are hospice, palliative care, cancer care, death, dying, and grief. I am also passionate about sobriety, recovery, co-dependency and betrayal trauma recovery. As a Sagittarius I have always been and will always be a seeker of truth and soul wound-healing. My hope for you is that what I have to offer at Lilygrace botanicals with be tools that will help you on your journey.
May you find your peace, your passion and your true self,
