About Me

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

Dear Reader:

My health and wellness journey started with Aromatherapy in 2014. I was skeptical at first, but then I surrendered to the evidence. Essential oils have been a part of my life since then and I use them daily.

After studying Engineering and working with Energy for many years, my interest in Human Energy increased leading me to deepen this subject by living in Asia and experiencing the health principles of ancient philosophies like Taoism.

Joie de vivre is an expression I believe in, meaning the joy of living. For me, this translates as being authentic: living through the wide range of emotions and states that life offers with acceptance which expands in an overall sense of gratitude throughout any situation and the capacity to admire synchronicity!

My greatest joy is sharing wellness, human beings fascinate me and I enjoy hearing different perspectives, so I started this blog, the YouTube Channel and Energy Ambassador’s Instagram to keep the flow of information.

Here you can find:

  • Essential Oils benefits, usages and recipes;
  • How Energy Medicine is a powerful tool to change behaviours and habits;
  • Relevant Books on wellness topics and how Arts can be an uplifting source of motivation;
  • Interviews with inspiring people and the visionary work they are developing;
  • How different systems like Quantum Physics, Meditation, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Nei Gong, Kung Fu, Tantra, Taoism, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Shamanism come together to assist Your Wellbeing.

I love laughing out loud, nature can make my heart sing and music is my home. When I’m not passionately writing, you’ll find me energising by the beach.

Welcome to Skin at Heart, helping people thrive!
