This story is important because it fuels my passion to not be judgmental, to be kind, to be ethical, to be honest, and so much more. You see, this essential oil company exists because I overcame something hard growing up and the journey I took to get here.
For the first few years of this business, as a Certified and Registered Aromatherapist, I felt compelled to correct all of the misinformation out there about essential oils. In fact, I made it my mission to really educate others while selling my products.
Then, in the end of my third year I realized that my business lacked something very important. I had received over 400 hours of credible aromatherapy education, but things weren’t developing the way I felt they should.
I felt the business name didn’t really correlate to what exactly it had become.
I felt like my ego was pushing more of the business than my heart.
My “why” or reason for being in business, while being a valid one, wasn’t completely true.
Originally, I started this business to help support my family and to fulfill my desire to be home for my kids. But ultimately there was something deeper, more personal urging me forward.
After taking some time to REALLY dig deep and asking myself some very hard questions, I realized a few things. I am a very passionate person. This passion for doing things the right way, for being honest, ethical, kind, and everything that makes me “me,” was fueled by something even deeper… Something much more important.
I am someone who for a LONG time has felt the need to overcome every obstacle and be deemed as successful, knowledgeable, and in general be better. Even to this day I still seek to be kind, honest, and ethical with a deep passion.
This company stands for what is kind, honest, ethical, and is my most passionate endeavor in helping others.
This company represents how much kindness can change a person's life.
This company represents the honesty in helping others with all of the knowledge that I have acquired from my past, current, and ongoing studies in aromatherapy.
We are all connected in some way and the kindness, honesty, and passion we have to help others in some small way must continue. Let us all remember to be kind, ethical, and be better in our aromatherapy journey and not blinded by fear, judgement, and ego.
For these reasons, my company exists. I will continue with these values as we empower and support you in your journey of essential oils. If I can ever help you in any way, please reach out to me.
My vision is for this company, my company, to be seen as a beacon of truth, honesty, and kindness in a world filled with too much negativity.
