Balot Del Rosario understands heartbreak
Balot Del Rosario is an Aromahead graduate in the Philippines.
Years ago, she and her husband dreamed of being parents.
However, things don’t always go according to plan.
Balot experienced a tragic series of miscarriages. Like so many women who go through such struggles, her heart was broken.
On her website, Balot says . . .
“You miscarry once and the world crashes down on you. You promise to do all things right the next time, like go to bed early, or eat the right food, and so on. And then, for the second time, you lost your little angel again.”
Motherhood: a dream come true!
Balot didn’t give up.
She worked closely with her doctors and dove into research on the causes of miscarriages.
Eventually, Balot’s doctors realized she was dealing with APAS, Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome. It’s a condition that causes Balot’s immune system to attack otherwise-healthy proteins in her blood. It can cause blood clotting—and recurring miscarriages.
Learning the truth helped Balot get closer to her goal of motherhood.
Finally, in May 2015, Balot and her husband
had their first baby, Santiago.
And later they had another baby, Lucia,
making Balot a happy mom of two!
A natural choice: Aromatherapy Certification
As she was trying to become pregnant, Balot made lifestyle changes to live more naturally. Nourishing her body and limiting her exposure to harmful chemicals was a healthy choice for herself (and her babies!)
Learning to use essential oils was a big step for Balot!
She became a Certified Aromatherapist at Aromahead Institute. (Check out her graduate profile!)
At Aromahead, Balot found the support she needed to change her life with aromatherapy.
“What I love about Aromahead Institute is the amazing amount of information that Andrea, Cindy, and the whole team have put in to really give a 360-degree view on essential oils . . . Their responsiveness to the students’ concerns is just impeccable!”
A new purpose: helping women through heartbreak
Today—in addition to caring for her children—Balot is a professional aromatherapist, with
a shop full of gorgeous handcrafted products.
She’s a huge advocate for using essential oils safely during pregnancy, and has written about it on her blog.
Balot is also an author and coach, guiding other women who are experiencing the emotional turmoil of miscarriage. Since she’s been where they’re standing, Balot can offer genuine, educated support.
The topic of miscarriage is often considered hush-hush, and isn’t spoken of openly.
“The m-word is taboo.
No one really talks about it publicly.
But I do.”
She recently launched the Lost but Found Tribe & Sisterhood, for women who need support on their journeys.
Balot’s courage is an inspiration!
Balot is an example of how aromatherapy can fit into a broader vision for your life, allowing you to help people in a personal way.
With education, you can safely use essential oils to support yourself and others through challenging times—whether your challenges are emotional, physical, or mental. (And challenges are often a combination of all three.)
