Welcome to Terracina Aromatics & Herbals!
Terracina, roughly translated from the Italian means “little earth,” and is the name of the small county in southwest Italy. Our owner, Amanda Lattin, can trace her family lineage to Terracina and hopes to infuse every product with the same attention to quality and craftsmanship her ancestors brought to their lives.
At Terracina Aromatics & Herbals, we continue the old traditions of healing through the fruits of the earth and address the needs of modern society to give our own “little bit of earth” to our clients.
We are aromatherapists and herbalists located in Portland Oregon, practitioners of natural healthcare methods which are designed to address a range of health imbalances. Amanda J. Lattin, our chemist and owner, is dedicated to creating the most natural essential oil products available. Not every product on the market which claims to be an essential oil product is, in fact, pure.
Whenever possible, Amanda sources her raw materials directly from the original facilities which extract the oil. She does not allow artificial ingredients or synthetics in her products. As a scientist and a purist, she knows that adulterations only weaken the therapeutic benefit of aromatherapy products. Nothing but the finest and most pure ingredients comprise any Terracina essential oil blend.
Since Amanda makes the products herself, you are guaranteed essential oils which are as close to the source as possible. If you need additional information, Amanda is happy to answer your questions. After all, she is a lot more than a salesperson.
Aromatherapy and essential oils are found in international hospitals, particularly in France, where it is recognized as a complimentary therapy. Our treatments and products are complimentary for any healing modality. We work alongside Massage Therapists, Chiropractors, and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners, which you may know as Acupuncturists. Amanda will be happy to speak with any therapist who would like to take their practice to the next level with aromatherapy.
Acupuncture and Aromatherapy
When our Portland Acupuncturist friends involve our products in their practice, they find that their patients experience enhanced benefits from each session. The oils enter the meridians (energy channels) and enhance the effects of the acupuncturists’ needle work. We can work with acupuncturists who are interested in learning more about combining the two practices.
Aromatherapy and Massage
Any massage session can be enhanced with essential oils. Just as oils enter the energy channels in an acupuncture session, they can have an impact during a massage. We can consult with Portland massage therapists to tailor their selection of essential oils to match the needs of their clientèle. Our catalog of oil blends is bound to have something to match even the toughest knotty muscle.
Aromatherapy and Chiropractic Treatment
Aromatherapy can be a key part of a chiropractic-led rehabilitation. Our oils can help patients reduce their stress level and become more open to the needed adjustments. Chiropractors all over Portland are welcome to contact Amanda to consult on this vital aspect of health and wellness.
Amanda J. Lattin, the force behind Terracina, holds degrees in Chemistry, Aromatherapy, and Herbal Studies. Her expertise is widely known and she is often called to lecture at universities. She is a continuing education instructor at Portland’s National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM.) If that weren’t enough Amanda is an Aromatherapy Instructor for The American College of Healthcare Sciences.
Recently, we have begun doing clinics in Pendleton, Oregon, and have received a wonderful reception from our friends out there. We also do clinics in the Camono Island, WA region around Puget Sound. We look forward to future expansion in Portland, where our all-natural aromatherapy products are well-loved every day. If you’re not local, we do phone and email consultations for clients nationwide.
