She is a certified clinical aromatherapist, and has studied the advanced chemistry of essential oils, even travelling to France to study the distillation of essential oils and plants. Sharon has been providing professional aromatherapy services since 2007, and serves on the Board of the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy, advocating the safe use of essential oils in the United States.
