Franci Machado / Certified Aromatherapist and Community Aromatherapy Educator

“All that man needs for health and healing has been provided by God in nature, the challenge of science is to find it.” –Paracelsus (1493-1541)

Franci discovered the benefit of using essential oils over ten years ago during her early years as a mother. Her use of aromatherapy began as a desire to promote wellness within her family and cure ailments naturally. Over the years she found herself learning all she could about essential oils as the limitless potential of their benefit fascinated her, and still does. Today she incorporates the use of essential oils in all areas of her life from health care, body care, home care and her own spiritual journey.

This passion for uncovering the healing benefits that nature provides us all led her to become certified in Arom​​atherapy. She quickly realized Aromatherapy was her calling because it was the one area of interest she never tired of and shared it’s benefits with those around her. Her friends and family often called upon her as a resource for finding natural remedies for various conditions.

Now, as Community Aromatherapy Educator, Franci’s goal is to share her knowledge with others so that they too can incorporate Aromatherapy into their lives in a holistic approach and combine them with other modes of wellness from Yoga to Reiki Healing to Massage Therapy allowing full nurturing of the body, mind & spirit.

Franci is a DC native and mother to three daughters ages 18, 14 and 12.
