Leila is a native Californian, a cabin dweller, and a maker of luscious botanical perfume blends. Her interest in fragrance began as a child living beside the Berkeley Rose Garden, where she was once caught stealing armloads of roses to make perfume. In 1987, she was introduced to aromatherapy and essential oils by aromatic consultant John Steele, with whom she worked closely. Since then, she has been studying and teaching on the magical and transformational use of fragrance to unlock sacred feminine power. From her kitchen at home, Leila creates goddess blends, mixes personalized scents, and teaches aromatic alchemy workshops.
