Meet Chantelle Latch, your Integrative Health Practitioner

The health industry and I have had a long love affair. For 15 years I have been a Registered Nurse, caring for people at the most vulnerable moments of their lives. Throughout my time working in the mainstream hospital system for 10 of those years, I felt something missing in the care I was giving to my patients. I was able to provide them with treatments, however never really had the time or the resources to get to the root cause of their problems. 

When I become a mother, I gradually transitioned to a holistic way of living life and learned another way of health and healing. When my youngest daughter was a baby, I delved into a Diploma of Nutritional Medicine and looked more closely into the healing power of food. Nature’s medicine. It awakened me to something that Western medicine doesn’t really subscribe to.

The notion that the food you put in to your body has a profound effect on not only your physical health, but also your mental and emotional state of being.

This prompted me to seek out a career that was more aligned with my values and I started working as an Integrative Health Nurse. Still caring for patients, but in a holistic way.

Discussing with them not only the foods they were eating, but environmental toxins they were exposed to, their mindset, relationships, past traumas, current stressors, their relationship with spirituality, job satisfaction, the list goes on.

You see, to seek out true health, you have to be willing to go way beyond just nutrition. It is a lifestyle you embody, through positive physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Over the years I have made a commitment to my own personal development, so that I can be the best holistic health mentor I can, to inspire others to live a life full of health and happiness. This past year has been one of my most transformative, through studying health coaching with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. As the name suggests, I have expanded my knowledge base on nutrition. However, I have also been guided to the true essence of health. Love and kindness to yourself, first and foremost. This sparked in me a great remembering, that I could create something for you with the things I love the most. Nature’s medicine. A gift that you could give yourself each day, to honour your body and nourish it with love and care.

It reminded me as a little girl I used to scour the shops, looking for essential oils to buy, so I could infuse my bedroom with beautiful aromas. Jasmine, Frankincense and Sandalwood are forever etched in my memory and anchor me back to my childhood. I still have the first ever aromatherapy books that I purchased from back in my teens, sitting in my bookshelf. They have been patiently waiting for me to reclaim them back off the shelves and bring to life natures fragrance to share with you all. Life has a beautiful way of going full circle, reconnecting you with what has been in your energetic field all along. 

On the shores of idyllic Byron Bay these essential oil blends were brought to life. Me on a picnic rug surrounded by books. Ideas were transported from my mind to notes on the pages. It was here that the blends were carefully and thoughtfully curated into existence. The most exquisite blends to nurture your mind, body and soul. To guide you into balance, to ground and cement you into your being.

My hope is that the essential oil blends give you a sense of joy and confidence that you are doing right by your body and exposing it to only the highest quality of ingredients. Not only reducing the toxic load on your body, but adding in the benefits that each oil brings. I sincerely hope you enjoy wearing these beautiful oils as much as I have loved creating them for you.
