Jenny Pao - Founder

As a holistic health practitioner and aromatherapist, Jenny Pao has been formulating essential oils to improve her client's health and well-being for over a decade. Having successfully used the oils in her practice, she started Nectar Essences to share the healing benefits of the oils with those outside her practice.

After receiving her diploma from The Western Institute of Natural Healing in 2003, she has been in practice helping families with small children improve their health and vitality. In addition, she has trained in Functional Medicine under Dr. Daniel Kalish, Flower Essence therapy under Teresita Espinoza Woters, and Quantum Energetics under Readene Vanden Heuvel. She also holds a BA in Cultural Anthropology from the University of California, San Diego.

Jenny has spent the vast majority of her life immersed in the wellness field, with a philosophy that the balance of mind, body and heart is at the epicenter of health. She has practiced yoga and meditation since she was five years old and in her free time, enjoys traveling to hot springs, cooking and playing with her dog Potato.
