From Ariele

I grew up on a fairly typical American diet of low-fat, high-sugar refined foods, diet soda and skim milk, with semi-annual doses of antibiotics thrown in for good measure.  By the time I was 18, I was overweight, asthmatic and depressed and desperately searching for ways to lose weight.  I scoured books about health and nutrition.  The more I learned, the more I understood that everything we put into and on our bodies affects every aspect of our health, including physical, mental and even spiritual well-being.

It became my mission to not only live the healthiest, most balanced life possible but to help others gain healthy balance in their lives.  My passion is to merge my education in Chinese Medicine with modern American life, and to introduce healthy practices into people’s everyday lives.  I always turn to herbal remedies as a first line of defense against illness and imbalance for myself and my children. When I began sharing my herbal blends and essential oils with friends, family and patients, the response was overwhelming. Before I knew it, there were requests from friends of friends, family of my acupuncture patients and emails from people I didn’t even know asking for my herbal remedies. The Ariele’s Apothecary line of artisanal, hand-blended herbal teas and essential oils had been born! Seeing and hearing the positive results of my natural product line is an incredible gift, and I’m so grateful to be able to share my products with you.

I hope you’ll share your story with me at
