Jona Valdez - CA

Utah - Email Jona

Jona graduated in England as a Beauty Therapist (Massage Therapist/Aesthetician) in 1993 and worked in England and Iceland for 10 years. She moved to the States and stayed home with her kids. A few years later she decided to start studying again, and that's when she discovered her love for essential oils.Jona has been homeschooling her 5 children (two who graduated) for the past 10 years as well as taking care of her family through natural means for about 15 years.

After taking a lot of small courses in herbalism and essential oil usage she decided to get certified as an aromatherapist. She also decided to do the LabCannamist course and now loves using the oils with the plant. Jona loves learning all the latest research, and learning about all the different strains, and about the terpenes, and of course making all sorts of products with it. She mostly works one-on-one, and loves that she can be one cog in this wheel we call our health journey.
