Curious about Adirondack Aromatherapy's birth story? Read on. 

I have been using essential oils for about 25 years, since the early 1990's. I recieved my Level 1 & 2 Reiki Certifications during the late 1990s. We have raised our 3 children who are all on the autism spectrum using holistic remedies since 1997.  Throughout the 90's and beyond I wrote newpaper columns focused on natural remedies, working with some of the most prominent healers in the Catskill Mountain and Hudson Valley Regions. After relocating to the Adirondacks in 2001 I completed my Reiki Master Teacher Program and began working on formal classes in Holistic Aromatherapy, Spiritual Aromatherapy and Essential Oils.  Thomas left the corporate soaping world to join me in my vision, and as of 2017 we are entering our 5th year at the historic Shirt Factory Arts and Healing Center.  ~ Gretchen M.
