About Me

Barbara Salerno

Hello! My name is Barb and I am the creator of Essential-Aromatherapy-Oils.com. I have been using aromatherapy for a number of years and it has been a blessing to my health and the health of those around me.

No one who visits my website knows anything about me (except for my loving family members and friends :-) so I'll tell you a little about myself.

I have always been interested in health and healing. Some of my friends used to tell me I should have become a doctor! But I was always more attracted to Nature's healing tools, not Man's. As a child, I and a few family members had been harmed by severe allergic reactions to drugs so I always tried to find natural remedies for whatever ailed me.

I first began to study metaphysical healing in the late 1970s, including yoga and meditation. In the early 80s I attended The Swedish Institute of Massage in New York City, not far from my home, and obtained a professional massage therapy license in 1983. Later on I obtained certification in Foot Reflexology from the Laura Norman School of Reflexology, also in New York.

I practiced massage therapy for several years but then began to feel limited by its application. How could I really access the body's inner energetic core?

I found the answer in acupuncture. Acupuncture had been very helpful to me in dealing with a severe case of asthma that I had developed in the early 90s. So I attended Tri-State College of Acupuncture and obtained my national acupuncture certification and licensure in 1998. I am licensed to practice in the States of New York and New Jersey.

Acupuncture school was very demanding, but I was exposed to many new ideas about metaphysical healing and alternative medicine.I found out about many holistic ways to heal your body, none of which involved harmful drugs, chemicals or invasive surgeries.

Out of this experience I began to study aromatherapy and use it in my daily life. Inhaling Peppermint and Eucalyptus oil has almost completely relieved a years-long case of stuffy sinuses. A few years ago I completely got rid of a stubborn breast tumor the size of a golf ball using Frankincense oil. In addition, I rarely experience any asthmatic breathing anymore, my energy levels are high, and people tell me I look at least ten years younger. (If you're waiting for me to tell you my age, forget it! :)

I discovered how much fun it is to make websites a few years ago and I set out to dedicate a website to aromatherapy and essential oils. They have made a huge difference in my life and the lives of my loved ones. The simple essence of a plant has tremendous power to heal and I just want to spread the word.

So here is my gift to you: Essential-Aromatherapy-Oils.com.

I'm not a professional webmaster or a professional internet marketer (you can probably tell that from some of my pages -- :) -- I do my best). Websites are my hobby -- my profession is in healing. I'm mainly interested in sharing good information with people about natural healing remedies. Please feel free to Contact me using the button at left.
