“Nemophilist; a great word to describe me along with Aromatherapist, Herbalist, Alchemist, Naturalist and Enthusiast of many Spiritual and Soulful life activities.” - Doreen DeSerres DuJardin has resonated with the Spirit of Nature since her birth, interacting with forest plants as a child. This Divinity has guided her on an authentic path related to the world's flora. She began Nature's Spirit Distinctive Aromatherapy on Earth Day 1988 as a way to fulfill her life’s purpose of communicating about wholistic wellness through herbal and aromatic botanicals.
“Feeling so connected to this word, I searched a bit of its history, known since 1838. A nemophilist describes a being who is fond of the Forest, having a love for the woods. It indicates a passion much deeper than just a formal pursuit of forestry or the technicality of botany. The word conjures the ethereal delight of Spirit along with the artistic visual impressions and aromatic uniqueness.”
Join our friend and regular contributor Doreen DeSerres DuJardin who's masterpiece Neophilist is beautifully planted in our 7th Sense section, and will take your imagination to a journey way beyond the forests.
