About Me

My name is Ruthie Guten. I have personally experienced tremendous healing in my life since my first exposure to a personalized blend of essential oils. I wanted to share the magic of essential oils with others, so a few years ago, E-Scentially Yours was born.

Unbeknown to me, my journey started as a teenager. I started reading books and articles about essential oils, herbs & healing, nutrition, spirituality, metaphysics and Kabbalah. As a practicing Civil Engineer, it seemed as if I had two lives – one where I played the role of Public Servant and the other where I served as mentor, coach, adviser, and guide to numerous friends, colleagues, employees, etc…

In 2000, I stumbled upon a class being given by Dr. Bruce Berkowsky in La Conner, Washington. As it happens, I was desperately seeking a place of peace and quiet during a very difficult period of my life. He invited me to “listen in” on the class for a few hours and I fell in love. I fell in love with essential oils and the spiritual connectivity that is inherent between the essential oil and our souls. I began to study the art of Spiritual PhytoEssencing with Dr. Berkowsky.

In 2010, I no longer could deny my need to move forward with this practice, so I retired from my position as Public Works Director in the City of Cedar Hill, Texas. I became a certified Holistic Health Coach and I am now fully dedicated to helping to heal the world one client at a time.
