“The physician treats, but nature heals.”  
Hippocrates20160130_191239

My name is Yumei Silva and I am a Aromatherapy and Herbal Practitioner.

In my practice, I utilize both essential oils and herbs. They are nature’s gifts to mankind.

Essential oils achieve excellent results when addressing emotional issues, in skin care, muscle and nerve damages, respiratory issues,  infectious diseases, including Candida Albicans, reproductive concerns (PMS, Menopause) and urinary tract infection.

Herbs on the other hand are better suited for internal digestion long term to achieve optimal results. Herbs can be used for both acute and chronic illnesses.

As a skilled practitioner, I look at the client as a person, not various parts. Identify the root cause is the key. Once the root cause is eliminated, the symptoms associated with it will naturally disappear.

Depending on the client’s health issues and constitution, I may focus on the essential oils or herbs or both to achieve best possible outcome for the client.

I work with individuals to help them discover their unique path to better health. Neither essential oils nor herbs are wonder cures. They are part of the holistic and wholesome approach to a healthy and happy life.

Food as medicine, medicine as food. It all starts with what a client puts in his/her body.

    1. Hi Karen!
      Yes, I sure do. I have recipes for everything 🙂
      Virgin coconut oils is the best for dry hair. If the nutty aroma is too strong for you, use “fractionated” which is lighter.
      Coconut oil 1 oz
      Jojoba oil 20 drops
      Rosemary ct verbenone 8 drops
      Lavender 8 drops
      Geranium 4 drops
      Combine the essential oils in a container and then add the carrier oils. Let them synergize for 24 hours before use.
      The above 3 essential oils are excellent for dry hair.
      Let me know if you have questions 🙂
