An Interview with Essential Elements

by Andrea Butje, LMT, Aromatherapy Educator on September 30, 2008

Essential ElementsEssential Elements was started by Minta Meyer and Therese Miller after they graduated Aromahead Institute.

Talk about being proud of your graduates! Essential Elements has become a real inspiration for everyone interested in starting their own aromatherapy business. I recently sat down with Minta to learn a little more about their journey.


1. Tell me about Essential Elements

Essential Elements is a woman-owned and operated holistic therapy center in St. Petersburg, Florida. We offer Aromatherapy Consultations and Custom Blending, Acupuncture, Cranial Sacral Treatment, Massage, Holistic Skin and Body Treatments, as well as Aromatherapy Workshops and Classes.

We develop our own product lines, and offering essential oils and related items for sale. Everything happens in a relaxing and nurturing environment.


2. What inspired you to begin Essential Elements?

Our own personal search for Organic/Wildcrafted, essential oils. What we found was the Aromahead Institute. Through our education, we were impressed by the healing potential of essential oils--not only in our lives, but for our clients.

We decided to create a space where we could share our knowledge during treatments, and provide education to our community.


3. What are some of your favorite aspects of your business?

Being around the oils in the morning is better than coffee! The oils offer infinite learning possibilities, and the more we learn the more we feel there is to know. The feedback we get from our clients is amazing. People love how the oils make them feel.

4. What are your goals and visions for the next few years?

We are excited about the future growth of the business and awareness of essential oil therapy.  We will continue to develop curriculum for education, and reach out to healthcare related establishments who could benefit from aromatherapy. We plan to travel to the countries where the plants grow, and where the oils are being distilled, to learn more about the process and the people involved.


5. How can people contact you?

We are located at 3001-First Avenue South in St. Petersburg, Florida 33712
