Aromatherapist. Writer. Midnight muser. Anthropology enthusiast. Dedicated researcher.
A token from her first academic love, Lauren holds a B.A. in Anthropology. She went on to study aromatherapy under the instruction of Sylla Sheppard-Hangar, LMT through the Atlantic Institute of Aromatherapy and then furthered her education by completing an Advanced Diploma in Aromatic Medicine under Mark Webb, BSc, MASCC. Her fervent desire for research and a fair representation of the field she has come to love inspired the creation of The Aromapologist. Her personal research interests are in applications with special needs and children as well as the archaeological evidence for the use of aromatics throughout history. She is dedicated particularly to helping parents of children with Cerebral Palsy learn how to safely and effectively utilize essential oils for their unique circumstances.
