Essence One founder, Lauren VanScoy, discovered that aromatherapy became a source of comfort and grounding when she was faced with times of stress. After being diagnosed with depression and anxiety, she explored natural options to improve her quality of life. She subsequently founded Essence One, in order to share her findings and to raise awareness for mental health. She has found that helping people discover the benefits of Essence One products has been hugely gratifying. In addition, personal interactions have encouraged conversation concerning mental health and available resources. Her passion for formulating products, helping people overcome emotional hardships, faith, and life with her family, keeps her thriving. Her aromatherapy-based, 100% natural products are a way to share her story and help others keep their stress levels low and spirits high! Every year, Essence One chooses a mental health organization to which they donate a portion of their profits, in efforts to raise awareness for that organization and resources. The 2019 organization is Bring Change to Mind whose mission is to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.
