My dear friend Sara Holmes, teacher and aromatherapist, is no stranger to grief. I have watched her walk through the loss of loved ones, her beloved daughter’s ongoing struggle with colorectal cancer, which she calls “future grief”, her niece Brittany’s well publicized move to Oregon where Brittany was allowed to choose Death with Dignity. Throughout all this, Sara has remained a pillar of strength and comfort to those who around her.
In this beautiful little book Sara shares her thoughts, her experiences and memories of her loved ones, and the tools, many aromatic, which have allowed her both to survive her own grief and to go on being a source of strength to others. Sara shares from her heart, and is bound to touch yours.She offers this Fragrant Memory in hopes that someone else will be helped by her experience. This book is a spiritual gift from a very talented aromatherapist and teacher.
I see this slim volume being of inestimable value in a hospice situation, as a gift to friends facing the unthinkable, to all those facing grief and the loss of loved ones.
Nature’s Gift is so very honored to be able to make Sara’s book available.
