Karin Frost-Madrid

Certified Holistic Aromatherapist and Founder of Mia’s Botanicals & Gifts

I have spent my life connected with nature from romping in the magnificent New Mexico desert on horseback as a child, to protecting and conserving our wild lands throughout the west as an adult. My reason for exploring natural aromatherapy was to take the next step in my family’s wellness routine by replacing traditional personal care products with more natural options that supported the entire personal constitution. I personally saw dramatic results during the use of these aromatherapy products and continue to explore with vigor. I truly believe that in order to flourish, we must remain connected to nature. Aromatherapy, captures the essence of nature, supporting that connection. Aromatherapy coupled with natural ingredients empowers us to move toward a more healthful well-being.
