Meet the Spice Mistress - Glynnis Osher


Academy Aromatica lotus

Hello, namaste.

I’m in love with and believe in, the life-transforming beauty that flows from Nature. The aromatic spice medicines intrigue and nourish me, they have healed, soothed, awakened and befriended me. Not a day goes by without the reminder of who I am in relationship to my plant allies. The aromatic seeds, spices, flowers, and herbs, have perfumed my life with joy, and my teachings with deep wisdom.

I believe we are the stewards of Nature, and through our reverent and conscious use of the gifts of the Earth, we can begin to restore harmony on our planet and in our lives.

I feel there is no time left for greed, overconsumption, mindless choices, unconscious use of toxic synthetics in our cosmetics, foods, and daily lives. We are being called to awaken to our role as true loving partners of the living world. This includes all plants, all creatures, all humans.

Everything I bring, comes from my many years of practice, discovery, and a true desire to live in harmony with Nature. Ayurveda has been my teacher. Infusing this wisdom into everything has brought me with grace through disruption into peace.

I offer the infinite harvest of my experience to share with you.
