About Your Teacher

Eileen Smyth

Eileen Smyth

Eileen has been practicing aromatherapy since 2014.  She is deeply passionate about aromatherapy, the healing properties of essential oils and how they can enhance peoples lives.

Eileen’s interest stems from her childhood passion of aromas. She noticed that when walking in the forests, being beside the lakes and fields, the aromas of nature improved her well-being.  A walk in the forest with the aromas, especially pine, would uplift the mood, revitalizing the senses and, as she often says, healing, mind, body and soul.  She truly believes aromas help to transform moods and assist the healing process.

Her passion was reawakened in 2013 when she was challenged with life-changing circumstances and she became fully immersed in aromatherapy as a healing journey. Eileen joined Green Tara as a student and became fully qualified by taking the ITEC Aromatherapy Diploma, as well as Reiki, Anatomy and Physiology, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Energy Management and the Teacher Diploma.  It was during this process that Eileen decided she was going to teach Aromatherapy and was delighted to be given the opportunity at Green Tara, which has been a huge part of her Aromatherapy journey.

Eileen loves to keep exploring and developing, keeping her passion alive by working at home experimenting with the oils to create healing balms, creams, massage oils and aromas to compliment healing.  Eileen loves to do nothing other than explain the synergy of gifts of nature and how they impart their therapeutic values.  She loves to encourage people to follow their passion and share her knowledge and empower and inspire students to achieve their full potential.
