Our Family

The Aetheric Essentials family

Aetheric Essentials was founded by Dr. Robert Folkard and his son Joshua, building on his work of 30+ years as a healing arts practitioner and chiropractor.

Throughout his successful career, Dr. Folkard developed a specialized method of care, The One Central Principle Healing Time Line TM. These are four specific phases of integrative, natural health care techniques, personally designed to return a patient back to exceptional health.

Included in this approach is a specialized technique designed by him, aptly named, “Body Systems Analysis”. This extremely accurate and highly sensitive bio-energetic assessment (BSA) assesses the level of stress and functionality of your internal organs and determines health strategies to support their return to wellness.

We all need to place a higher than “normal” value on our health, in respect of our bodies, minds and hearts. Through exceptional health and wellbeing, we can rise above the level of sickness, suffering, disease and death centeredness, and KNOW our purpose and LIVE IT, here and now.

In this way the world and all that we are responsible for may vibrate once more with the beautiful expression that is inherently ours to give. Dr Folkard calls this Radiant Living.

Dr Folkard has advanced his experience within the natural healing arts by developing many new techniques that allow all willing ones to reach and maintain an ideal state of Radiant Living. One such technique is the Emotional Release Technique. The key to the success of this technique is the 12 resonant blends that both Dr. Folkard and his son Joshua developed in agreement with highly skilled aromatherapists.

Which is why he and Joshua founded Aetheric Essentials, to enable others to benefit from these unique essential oil blends. At Aetheric Essentials, Dr Folkard and Joshua source and test the highest quality essential oils from around the world, checking for their bio-energetic properties as well as their purity and effectiveness. They then carefully blend these oils into the twelve Resonant Blends, specifically designed for bioenegetic and meridian balancing when applied using our specific protocol.

Every essential oil Aetheric Essentials sells has been tested by Dr Folkard and Joshua, and used every day by a hand-picked network of partners in various disciplines of natural healing and alternative therapies, from acupuncture to massage therapy. Robert and Joshua use their own Resonant Blends every day to help clients with their physical and emotional balancing, and as a powerful aid for emotional release.

As Joshua says: “We’re not a big corporate essential oil company. We don’t have a vast network of stores, a massive sales team, or thousands of affiliates. We’re a family company driven by passion and supported by practical, professional experience. We want everyone to benefit from what we learn, what we create and what we discover.

But we do have big plans! We are busy working on an education program to help professionals and practitioners benefit from our information through events such as workshops, talks, seminars, webinars, podcasts, symposiums and more.”

Joshua Folkard, BA.

Joshua graduated from the University of Western Ontario (UWO) in London Ontario Canada, with a degree in health sciences and psychology. He is also currently engaged in adding depth to his knowledge in neuroscience, working toward his second degree in Cognitive Neuroscience at UWO.

Joshua became fascinated with essential oils, many years ago, during his time working with a bioenergetic medicine company. Here, he witnessed first-hand the healing power and potential behind skillfully crafted essential oil blends.  The impact and impression that essential oils had would be more fully realized many years later, when he turned to them for assistance through some challenging times.

Roughly a decade ago, Joshua was inspired to seek out and source the highest quality oils at reasonable prices, due to the fact that he was a student and on a fixed income! The result of his searching lead to a friendship that would facilitate the birth of Aetheric Essentials. This humble beginning was a side-gig, without profit, to help family and friends gain access to the amazing sources he had located.

The word spread, and what was a handful of friends and family has become a sizeable extended family of people that have come to depend upon Joshua. They value his ever-increasing knowledge relating to all things essential oils and their use, and his ability to supply the highest quality oils without the massive markup.

Now, in partnership with his father, Joshua aims to enable more people, and professionals to enjoy the trustworthy source Aetheric Essentials has become.
