Lucie B.-Mainguy, who is she?

Distiller, creator of numerous aromatic synergies for more than 30 years.

Trained as an architect, I have been passionate about aromatherapy since 1988 and explore, one plant at a time, the immense power of essential oils. Within Aliksir, I immersed myself in the discovery of the therapeutic and energetic power of oils from all over the world. Native American at heart, alchemist at heart and creator of many aromatic synergies, I repeatedly marvel at the results and successes for wellness goals. I have received and deepened for more than 40 years teachings of wisdom and understanding that I would now like to share: on the Native American Medicine Wheel the Grandmother occupies the west stone and her role is to pass on to the next this that she received during her life path.

I have traveled the world to offer the aromatic riches of Quebec and to bring back treasures from elsewhere. Now, beyond the health of the body with medicinal, food or cosmetic applications, I have chosen to focus on energy functions, the spirit of plants, the wordless language of Mother Nature. Alchemy, which teaches us about distillation, has the avowed aim of bringing out the spirit of matter and the Aromatic Compass of 9 energetic synergies has precisely been created to accompany us on the way back to the Source, deep healing.

    As a grandmother

    I am very honored to have been consecrated "Grandmother White Butterfly" by Grandmother Jeorgina in 2005, during the ceremony of establishing the Medicine Wheel in Aliksir. According to Aboriginal tradition, this title is an acknowledgment of acquired wisdom and it comes with a responsibility to support and teach future generations.
