Cyrene Banerjee 

Canada - Email Cyrene

Cyrene bought her first bottle of essential oil in England in 1992 and has never been without one ever since. Her purse and her home may as well be an oversized essential oil vial!

When the Heartfulness Institute inaugurated its first still in India in 2018, Cyrene leapt into distillation and formulating bath and body products for the 100,000 people who visit the meditation center annually. Cyrene has completed coursework from The Tisserand Institute, Aromahead, Healing Fragrances School of Aromatherapy, Lipids Oil Academy, and the School for Aromatic Studies.

Apart from her membership with the AIA, Cyrene is also an active member of the International Clinical Aromatherapy Network, the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists, and the Bev Hawkins Membership Club.

Cyrene is a patient engagement researcher for Alberta Health Services in Calgary, Alberta, and helps the Diabetes, Obesity and Nutrition network raise awareness of foot and eye health clinics among vulnerable populations. She is a meditation trainer, and a passionate—if not skillful—billiards player. She splits her time between Canada and India, and enjoys learning something new every day.

Formerly employed in the software IT industry, in my own personal search to look for products that are safe and not filled with additives, I encountered the world of aromatherapy and came to understand the wealth that essential oils can offer if used correctly. Now, I have left the corporate world and I have become a Certified Aromatherapist. I can now focus solely on aromatherapy and bringing this gift to all in not only a safe and reliable manner, but also one that is personalized to reflect our own individuality.
