About Alchemista

Sonia M.Rodriguez


Sonia M. Rodriguez has been working as a formulator and educator in the field of Aromatherapy over the past 20 years. Ms. Rodriguez studied Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Arizona, but she wasn’t destined for a research lab. When family and her interests in Latin American healing practices drew her to Mexico, she undertook a lengthy grassroots study of herbology and natural healing agents used by indigenous populations in Michoacan, Mexico.

She developed a passion for creating eco-friendly natural products, and that is what brought her to the field of Aromatherapy. When dreaming up new therapeutic products, she merges Western science with traditional folk remedies, incorporating research studies of essential oils with the practice of Aromatherapy.

Ms. Rodriguez was a founding owner of The Aroma Tree and formulated the company’s product line in addition to signature lines for renowned spas such as Miraval and Canyon Ranch.

With the creation of her own company, Alchemista, Ms. Rodriguez has continued research of essential oils and other natural materials for the development of pure aromatherapy products. Her services include Consultation, Custom Formulation and Private Label Development. She is also enthusiastically involved in teaching aromatherapy. Her courses span beginning level aromatherapy for the amateur enthusiast to advanced courses for professionals through what is her latest evolution of Alchemista Aromatherapy Sanctuary & Spa.
