Lura Shopteau M.A., LPC, E-RYT-500, YACEP, C-IAYT, MBSR
I have worked with herbs as a child when my grandmother made her Blood Poison salve for the family to use on all our cuts and then began working with essential oils extensively in the 1980’s when I was employed at the Aveda Corporation. I was certified in aromatherapy by Marcel Lavabre/ Aroma Vera and have since owned two companies that make essential oil and herbal products. I make and distribute Bienestar products with both herbal and essential oil formulas.
