ESSENTIAL REFLECTIONS

Authentic practices, transformative experiences, co-creation with aromatic and medicinal plants.

My name is Ildiko Berecz. I am an Alchemist.
As a Transformative Teacher I offer guidance, coaching and mentoring through my personal essentials as a Clinical Aromatherapist, Plant Communicator, Earth Steward, Aromatic Forager, Plant Grower, and Artisan Distiller.

Our Essential Reflections hydrosol Discovery packs are to tell many aromatic stories and transform lives. You may be part of the story by joining us for one of our ‘Distill Your True Self’ transformative experiences. In any case, we hope you find yourself spending a highly inspiring time on our website.
