Aromatherapy has become a household word over the past twenty years as has Home Birth, Midwife, and Herbalism. This herbal renaissance has paved the way for teachers and students alike to reshape the way we think about caring for ourselves and our families. From pregnancy on, more and more women are turning to natural healing techniques for managing pregnancy, birth, and the early childhood years. Today, we’re talking with Demetria Clark, internationally acclaimed herbalist, aromatherapist, and doula trainer about aromatherapy and herbalism for pregnancy and beyond.

We discussed an article published on CBSNews.com in January 2016 entitled, “Don’t Fall Victim to Olive Oil Fraud,” by Ann Silvio and Lisa Orlando.

“Herbalism chose me; I did not choose herbalism. Do you feel this way? A call you need to answer? This is how my journey began as a child.

I started learning about Herbal Healing at a very young age from friends and mentors I had in my youth and childhood. I first studied under a teacher at age thirteen, and I have been involved ever since. Over the years I have formally studied and apprenticed with Rosemary Gladstar (in beginner and advanced training), apprenticed with Jane Smolnik, studied the Wise Woman Way with Susun Weed, and attended workshops given by scores of well-known herbalist from all over the world. I have been fortunate enough to “sit at the feet” of David Hoffmann, Christopher Hobbs, Susun Weed, David Winston, and scores of other amazing teachers. I received my Aromatherapy education from the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy and Jeanne Rose. Also, I have studied herbalism in the US, Canada, Switzerland, Egypt, Spain, Greece, Italy, Turkey, France, Germany, Ireland, the UK, Mexico, Caribbean, Central American countries and in many other locals worldwide. I have an advanced level of education in Phytotherapy from the UK, Aromatherapy, and Ayurveda.”
