AE was birthed in 2001 during a time when our family was experiencing great challenge. After the loss of our dear husband & father, we found our little family facing life in a way we’d never known before. The special harmony of joy we shared was now interrupted by an ill note of grief, leaving us unsure of what we had known and believed in.
Through many prayers & meditations, and by striving to reach for the future with our faith, we found an account in the Bible which talked of a widow in debt, her children, a prophet, some oil and a loving, merciful God. From that account came the inspiration to begin a special business that my children and I could work together in and share our love for natural products & living. This business would have many product divisions including one which would include teas, herbs, natural foods & perfume oils (which my daughter and I especially enjoy!)
Our goal in this product division was and is to market superior quality perfume oils, body care (including handcrafted personal care items) herbs, teas & accessories all at an affordable price.
Our family business has also allowed us to use & develop our artistic talents as well. Our teacup bathing lady (lovingly named AScentia)was designed by my daughter and the AScential Man logo, (which will be introduced soon) designed by my son.
Through prayer and collaboration, we got the idea for our simple packaging (much of which is refillable)and added the pretty little rose to symbolize our motto:
Inhale, Exhale, Breathe, Be Beautiful!
i.e. take time to smell the roses! We understand all too well how important it is to take time out and enjoy the beauty God blesses us with. It is our desire to assist you in creating a beautiful, fragrant even therapeutic environment with perfumes, essential oils & body care! We look forward to serving you and those you love.
