Wendie MacQuarrie — Biography


Raised in a family with interest in the outdoors, farming, apiculture and living healthy, Wendie MacQuarrie has always been a lover of nature and the plant kingdom. Also enjoying a love of travel and adventure, Wendie has been fortunate to be able to explore different lands and appreciate the biodiversity of this earth.

In 1981 she received her Bachelor of Science, concentration in Botany, then started dabbling in the apothecary arts. After working in the IT field for years, it wasn't until 2015 that she obtained her Clinical Aromatherapy designation and took the step to move her passion for plants from hobby to career and opened her company Ascensa Energy Essences.

As a 30+ year yoga practitioner, Reiki practitioner, and crystal enthusiast, she melds the esoteric side of aromatherapy with her scientific background to provide her clients with products to maintain physical and mental well-being. She believes in the powers of Nature and the importance of being your own advocate in achieving a lifestyle of harmony in both mind and body.
