 Scented Drops, my Essential Oil journey

I started this adventure when I moved on from an Executive Assistant position I had been in for years. It was a difficult time and left me feeling disappointed that I had given more of my time to my work than to the most important people in my life…my family.  I wasn't ready to return to an office job immediately and fallback into the grind of nine to five ,so I decided to throw caution to the wind and find something that would allow me to be there for my family but give me purpose at the same time.  So with some help from my mum who created her own products for years...Scented Drops was born!

Scented Drops is very important to me, it's a brand that is built on quality and the importance of scent and it's connection to memory and health and wellness.  I still capture the memory of my Nonna every time I smell Oil of Olay. It triggers the memory of walking into her house every Sunday ready to sit down to a plate of pasta and meatballs.  Every time I kissed her cheek hello I would breathe in that soft powdery scent.  Even though the name and packaging has changed over time, years later the scent can still take me back to that special place with my Nonna. My sister says Gardenias always trigger the same memory because that was what her garden was filled with. I find it incredible how we can both evoke the memory of our Nonna by scent!

During my own journey with anxiety I've realised just how powerful our body is and if we truly listen to it we have the ability to help ourselves. 

I was so amazed at how implementing simple rituals into my day using essential oils made me feel that I went on to complete my Certificate in Aromatherapy Consultancy.  I can see that a lot of people are hesitant to start using oils as they feel pressure with either conflicting information or being made to feel they need every oil to help, that's not true, you shouldn't feel pressure.  Just start simple and your love will build from there.

In a world where stress is the new "norm" and the biggest complaint is never having enough time to look after ourselves our Essential Oil products take the guess work out of it.  

Diffusing an oil after a hard day, running a bath with salts on a Sunday night before the work week begins or misting your room with essential oils before you sleep at night, any of these simple rituals will create your own sense of calm. Start your journey now
