BotaniMend is owned and operated by Clinical Aromatherapist/Community Herbalist Ken Miller. It was originally founded and established in 2018 under the name WholeAroma, LLC in Stow, OH to serve not only the health needs of the local community, but also across the United States, using mostly aromatherapy and aromatic medicine. Because Ken is also an herbalist, he felt it was best to change the name of the practice to BotaniMend in 2022 to better reflect the entirety of the practice’s plant-based medicine offerings.
BotaniMend serves clients who are experiencing common health issues and/or health issues that no other therapies have been able to resolve, and who desire to resolve these issues through more natural means. Through our insight of aromatherapy, aromatic medicine, herbal medicine, and functional medicine techniques, we educate our clients on courses of action that can be used to bring the body back into healthy balance. Since a holistic approach is the most effective way to restore the body to a balanced, healthy state, we couple this insight and education with coaching on lifestyle and dietary change as well (if necessary). In this way, we can help our clients make the adjustments needed to become healthy once again.
BotaniMend is a member in good standing of the following professional organizations: National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy, Alliance of International Aromatherapists, the International Aromatherapy Network, the American Herbalists Guild, and the Stow-Monroe Falls Chamber of Commerce.
Ken Miller is a practitioner of Aromatherapy, Aromatic Medicine, and Herbal Medicine.
