After graduating with a master’s degree in botanical science from Oxford University, James spent a decade in Asia studying Ayurveda and other healing modalities. He moved to Sedona, Arizona, in 2000 and co-founded Body Bliss, producers of the finest, therapeutic-grade botanical extracts and essential oils on the market.

Having established a worldwide network of artisanal and co-operative farmers and distillers, Body Bliss imports healing raw materials from around the globe as well as his “backyard” in the Southwestern desert. “In making products that support healthy lifestyles, two things are important: what you leave out and what you put in. Therapists and bodyworkers are in intimate contact with the products they use all day, every day,” said James. They deserve to work with the purest products possible.”
