Hello! My name is Leslie Moldenauer and I am the owner of Lifeholistically, a trusted resource that covers essential oil safety and encompasses all that natural living has to offer. I am first and foremost an aromatherapist. My practice is firmly rooted in research and science, but I also believe that hands-on experience plays a large role in an aromatherapists toolbox. I have been working with essential oils for over a decade, and have completed over 500 hours of formal training. Natural living and holistic wellness have been a part of my life for a very long time.
Shortly after deciding to go back to school for complementary medicine, as a new mom with two very young boys I found myself absolutely exhausted. My to-do list was always growing by the minute and although I always got a lot done, I felt I never did anything particularly well. Burning the candle at both ends caught up with me in a big way when I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, and later with adrenal exhaustion.
Through this shocking diagnosis, I discovered not only that I needed to take better care of myself, I needed to let go of what was no longer working in my life; attitudes and behaviors, self-talk, and I even walked away from a few key relationships in my life. I needed to grow in ways I never thought I could. I had to challenge my old ways of thinking. I am now a single mom and am thriving more than I have in years. I have a lot to share!
Come and take this spiritual journey with me. I will challenge your thought processes to help you to love and take care of yourself first each and every day so that you have enough to not only care for your children the best that you can but to fully embrace life! I specialize in aromatherapy for kids so rest assured, I am very educated and anything that I share with you is based on research, science, and a whole lot of love. Aromatherapy can be of great benefit to your whole family! Let me help you get back on track.
So what is my educational background?
I earned my degree in Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the American College of Healthcare Sciences in Portland, Oregon. In addition to my aromatherapy training, I am a Holistic Health Practitioner and Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant with an additional 1,000 hours of training. Within these hours I have earned over 7 certificates, and have experience in formulating, natural product manufacturing, as well as aromatic medicine.
I am happy that you have found my page. The future is bright and we are in this together!
Aromatic Blessings, Leslie
