Today we’d like to introduce you to Cher Kore.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Cher. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I starting studying and experimenting with Essential Oils in the late 1990’s. In 2002 I started my business mostly because I wanted to learn about more essential oils and get a chance to mix more healing blends. I originally thought I would make and sell products. I had some success, but it took a lot of energy and I found I would have a lot of extra products after events that I would not want to sell after they lost freshness. I hate waste. So, In 2004 I redefined my business as an education and consulting business. I teach classes at 3 Adult Education Schools in Boston, Brookline, and Newton. I also teach classes at my home workshop in Allston. I take appointments for private individual and group consultations and classes. I am also happy to travel to homes and businesses within the greater Boston area to teach or create customized blends for each guest.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
There are so many challenges and second thoughts when doing something so esoteric. And one thing I know about myself is that I cannot sell. I can only teach. Once people come to a class or consultation the products they make last a while and then they know how to buy fresh quality oils and mix the products themselves saving them money and helping the environment by reusing bottles and saving so much water from being shipping. I have never like to pay more for fancy marketing. Cooking instruction is very similar to aromatherapy instruction. Aromatherapy is an art, a science, and a method for healing just like cooking. I offer a sensual experience as well as the knowledge to recreate that experience at home, quite easily.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Kameleon Healing – what should we know?
I specialize in Aromatherapy and Perfumery Education and creating customized recipes for each individual based on their needs, tastes, and personality.
I am most proud of helping people. When I can help someone sleep or ease a physical or emotional issue with very simple techniques and ingredients it makes me feel great. I get so much joy when folks pick up on the excitement of scents.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I have such a supportive family and friends. My parents and sister have always kept me feeling safe when taking risks. Some friends helped me get my website started, Larry Manning in particular. I also have a supportive network of other healers who I collaborate with on events so we can combine healing modalities such as reiki, crystals, yoga, nutrition and more. Reiki Master Christine Radice has been an especially positive role model.
