Holistic Lifestyle Coach / Certified Herbalist / Essential Oils Expert
Welcome new friends! Just wanted to take a quick minute to introduce myself. I’m Amanda Jaramillo, thank you so much for sharing this journey to help empower and change lives. I’m obsessed with essential oils and just about anything holistic health related. I will be sharing with you everything from achilles care to how to manage stage fright. I will place a strong focus on how dancers can directly benefit from essential oils and holistic practices in their daily lives in and out of the studio.
Dancers put a lot of stress on their bodies and even their mental health. The intense training and performance schedules put high demands on your body and soul. I can’t wait to show you how you can practice self care and preventive care with essential oils.
1. I’ve been a certified herbalist since 2013. Before retiring in 2016 I worked as an independent birth doula and childbirth educator for 10 years. I’ve been honored to welcome close to a hundred babies earthside. It’s still something that I miss and I hold dear to my heart. I also own a placenta encapsulation business.
2. I have two amazing kiddos ages 7 (girl) and 10 (boy) who are the loves of my life, both born at home. They are the reason for everything I do in this world. They give me inspiration to continue my quest to help others every day.
3. I’ve been living holistically for over 10 years now. I became hyper aware of all the toxins in our food, body products and enviroment after becoming pregnant with my first baby and quickly began implementing changes in my lifestyle.
4. Growing up I rode and showed horses as a hunter/jumper. Yep, that means I jumped my horse over the big fences.
5. I grew up in a very poor neighborhood in El Paso, TX. Learned many life lessons during those years. I honor and appreciate all the struggles as it’s made me who I am today.
6. I love working out and believe staying fit is an important piece to whole body wellness.
7. I’m a researcher by nature which means I’ve spent thousands of hours researching everything that has peaked my interest when it comes to health.
8. I LOVE music so much!!! It gives me life. I have a very diverse library of music that I listen too. Janis Joplin is my spirit animal.
9. I’m an empath which means I feel everything and everyone. This can be difficult at times but gives me the ability to empathize and comfort those in times of need.
10. I have a HUGE heart for helping people on their health journey. It literally brings me so much joy!
