After the birth of her second child, founder Lauren VanScoy was surprised to find herself in a big ball of stress and anxiety. As this was a new feeling to her, she initially had no idea what to do or where to go to help. Shortly after, she was diagnosed with major depression that manifested as anxiety. The first step was medication, but knew she eventually wanted to try a natural way of healing herself.
Later that year Lauren was introduced to essential oils and instantly became passionate about the healing properties. After becoming certified in Aromatherapy from Aromahead Institute, Essence One was born. Through studying psychoneuroimmunology and the means by which aromatherapy can mitigate our level of stress and support our immune system, it became her priority to improve the quality of life for others and her family.
The mission of Essence One is to help others restore a healthy life through the use of natural products and to bring awareness to natural mental health therapies. At Essence One, we only use 100% pure essential oils and natural colorants – so you can trust we are only using safe, 100% natural ingredients in our products.
Lauren is now studying to be certified in herbalism as well as international organic skincare. She will be constantly introducing new products inspired by her studies. Good things come in small batches at Essence One. When everything is handcrafted with care and love, they can’t be mass produced. They believe in delivering a quality product that has the personal touch.
