MD/Sono Sugimoto ~ I am a certified WOTE Level 2 medicinal aromatherapist.

When I first discovered WOTE, I was watching a video on the internet. It was as if I was guided to watch the particular one. In it, a man whom I was following on and off was saying how beautiful and fabulous WOTE essences were. Having never heard of WOTE, right away I checked the WOTE website. Everything that WOTE was sharing is aligned with what I care about and I feel important.

The Aroma Kit was my first order. For the first time when I picked up the essences and opened each bottle, my life changed forever. I was so astonished as I heard the whispers from the plants or their spirit! I didn’t know how to use the essences, so I just followed their guidance. I had a sense of “this is it” and the guidance that they were giving me sat in me very deeply. Without hesitation I knew that I’d study with the amazing teachers of WOTE. I took Level 1 within a year from the event and the following year, I participated in Level 2.

Healing myself and loving myself have been my journey. Since WOTE and the Plant Essences have come into my life, my life expanded so much. Because I experienced a lot of trauma growing up, I didn’t realize that loving people existed. And WOTE helped me changing its perception. Now I am surrounded by loving people! I have immense gratitude toward plants, trees, Gaia, WOTE and guides who have brought me here.

Beside sharing the beauty of scents to those who come into my life, I do love supporting my clients to connect, commune with nature and to love themselves more and deeper.
