There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about the my journey and vision, as it pertains to all things aromatic and beyond. I trust you will enjou all the offering available isite and take a moment to drop me a line.
My name is Michael Scholes and I am originally from the UK and have been in the United States since 1982. I am experienced in all aspects of Aromatic and Botanical-based solutions, having accumulated over 35 years of knowledge in the Art, Science and Healing aspects of essential oils and all things aromatic. My extensive training includes working directly with the two leading experts in the therapeutic use of essential oils, Dr. Daniel Pénoël and Pierre Franchomme, with over 70 years of combined experience. Penoel, a leading authority in medical aromatherapy, and Franchomme, a pharmacologist/botanist, who invented the concept of energetics, chemotypes, and the therapeutic use of essential oils.
I research, write, train, formulate, practice and consult and offer one of the most extensive collections of essential oils in the world. My services are sought out as a formulator, teacher, trainer, practitioner, writer, speaker, researcher and developer of multi-sensory therapeutic-based treatments. I am the founder and owner of the Virginia based, Laboratory of Flowers, and offer a comprehensive number of products and services. While I am a for-profit based LLC, I am not commerce driven. I am a debt-free enterprise striving for zero waste and a low carbon footprint. I believe in personal service and I am always available by phone, text and email offering support, suggestions and solutions. My purpose is to help educate, formulate and apply essential oils as a complementary intervention to conventional medicine through blends, treatments and integration into all aspects of the human condition, helping to restore balance within and ultimately end pain and suffering.
"THE LIBRARY OF FRAGRANCE"
We are dedicated to offering the most vital and consistent essential oils available, featuring over 600 essential oils, absolutes, hydrosols, and fixed oils. We explore all available sources for our products and search far and wide to the corners of the earth and collect rare and precious oils representing the true nature of what an authentic essential oil smells and feels like. Our mission is to carry multiple oils from a variety of countries, along with multiple species, available in a selection of qualities and distillation methods. We are interested in the exact species of specific essential oils correctly identified by their Latin names. Each essential oil has its preferred country of origin, although it is not to say there are no other countries offering comparable oils. Lavender, for instance, is grown in at least 11 countries and this is why we offer 27 different lavenders globally grown at different altitudes, locations, and in varying soils from organic, wild, and pesticide free sources. In addition, we have multiple eucalyptus (14), fir (13), frankincense (8), geranium (8), helichrysum (7), jasmines (7), junipers (9), myrtle (5), patchouli (8), peppermint (10), petitgrain (8), pine (11), rose (10), rosemary (11), sage (10), spruce (7), tea tree (7), thyme (8), vetivers (8), yarrows (6) and ylang ylang (6) in our collection. This is why we call our collection, “The Library of Fragrance.” In our library we offer the following:
214 Organic, 148 Conventional, 143 Wild, 44 Absolutes, 35 C02 extracted, 40 Fixed Oils (carriers), 29 Floral Waters ,13 Wild Artisan Crafted & 2 Bio Dynamic.
Lab of Flowers Spa provides signature treatments, professional supplies, retail possibilities, and customized training, by Michael Scholes. We are a full-service supplier and while we can supply individual items, our preference is to partner with spas who have a wellness-driven vision. We are looking to spa's with those whose focus is to integrate all levels of therapeutic healing by not only incorporating our treatments, but also interweaving our products, educational events and training into a multi-sensory, full-spectrum approach for the client. The goal is to create the opportunity for clients to feel connected to their spa experience as something more than just a "treatment", but rather a transformative and healing experience.
Each one of our healing journeys focuses on key concerns such as balance, vitality, sleep, detoxification, restoration, energy, and stress relief.

“What starts as a conversation can easily reconnect you with the solution to what ails you as well as uncover the source of the problem.” Michael Scholes
What are Reality Based Solutions?
First and foremost, it is not therapy, counseling, metaphysics or religion and at the same time, it can feel like all or some of the above. Think of it as somewhere between a conversation and psychotherapy. It goes beyond a conventional therapeutic model. Your belief system is immaterial to the process. This is a conversation with yourself, where my voice becomes the voice of reality and reason, in your own mind…are you open to hearing what you are not saying or not listening to within yourself? This process helps you to take full responsibility for everything you create, therefore giving you the power to make the necessary changes in what troubles you today, resolving it in the moment, in real-time. The goal of this process is to recognize that all solutions lie within yourself and are based in the reality you are aware of and often hidden within the unconscious. My role is to guide you through what could be a minefield of emotions to keep all aspects of you intact while creating the life you desire through being true to who YOU really are and knowing what you want and need.
"I have spent most of my adult life searching for resolve of my own internal conflicts and in turn helping my clients find solutions to underlying challenges related to health, emotional upset, grief, difficult relationships, complicated career challenges and all unnecessary suffering". Michael Scholes
Michael is an integrated intuitive healer and wellness practitioner who has over 35 years experience in assisting clients to find resolve in where they suffer whether physical, emotional, psychological, mental, spiritual or energetic. His caring and compassion are exactly what is needed to restore you to wholeness and wellness. Solutions are based on inviting in something that needs to change for change to occur. This is accomplished through connecting with the authentic self with the addition of botanical interventions.
"Michael Scholes is a gifted and skilled healer unlike any other who possesses an unprecedentedly deep devotion of service to his clients. Steeped in trauma, Michael helped me through a maze of challenges allowing me to transform an enormously difficult situation that quite possibly could have negatively impacted the remainder of my life into one of empowerment and opportunity. He introduced both practically and energetically, how to shapeshift my reality so that it served me in its highest capacity. By working in the here and now and supporting positive action in my everyday life he also coached, coaxed and convinced me to honor myself in my thoughts and feelings resulting in the energetic shift which then impacted my reality. As if this weren't enough, he made his services available to me at my leisure during a 12-hour window six days a week affording me the care needed to attend to my difficult moments which I was unable to see coming. Michael then offered his support and services to challenged friends and family giving way to a deeper level of understanding in my own life.

Reality-Based Solutions "Healing the world one person at a time".
Michael is available to speak on a variety of subjects including aromatherapy, wellness and self-realization. As an advocate for nature, his focus is on natural alternatives using organic components, compared to synthetics, plus lifestyle modification. He uses comparisons between conventional medicine and traditional historical models, where the focus is about restoring balance through the elements, Ayurveda, temperaments and characterological defenses. His specialty is in identifying the human condition as being made up of energy: physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual and energetic. Michael believes that healing is the integration of communication (expression) with touch (hands-on), the senses (especially smell), nutrition (real food) and prayer (beyond religion).

Where there is a Remedy, There is a Cure - Aromatic Solution in the Modern World
“Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.” Ephesians 5:1-2
The Fragrant Path is the path we take, through our intent and interaction with nature, to connect with the very essence of fragrant plants and to listen to what these plants are communicating. Each essential oil that we use, our favorites, the ones we blend with, inhale, the combinations we choose, and where we apply these oils, are all signposts, leading us to our path of awakening along our journey to inner healing. Each essential oil has a specific vibration that is targeted to a specific organ system, meridian, and imbalance within. These intricate molecules of emotion can assist with our own spiritual awakening and physical connections, designed to align our internal chemistry so we may go deeper within for the answers to our own personal journey and challenges. This is ultimately to find the truth regarding our life purpose and how to align with our destiny and divinity through nature.
Formulating and Analysis
While I cannot copy other fragrances, I can create a customized blend according to your requirements using a wide variety of organic, conventional, wild-crafted, carbon dioxide or a combination of all. Let me know what you need, and the price that your budget allows, and I will formulate a blend that not only smells good, be similar but will be effective for what the blend is designed to do.
While we do not offer GC analysis, we do offer blend evaluation based on chemical analysis translated into the benefits that the blend offered. A Certificate of Anlysis can be mande available on request for an additional fee.
