My name is Melissa Curran and I created Scented Balance for those who want a more self-directed approach to taking charge of their overall wellbeing. You’ll find honest information about alternative forms of healthcare to help you with everyday concerns before they become full blown issues. Chances are great that healthcare – as we know it – will go away. Then what?
If you are one of over 8 million people with chronic skin disorders due to diabetes, eczema, psoriasis and temporarily due to cancer treatments, then this website is for you. Through the wisdom of nature, aromatherapy can effectively address your skin issues.
This website is also for you if you know you are stuck in a rut in your life that you just can’t seem to get out of. That’s where holistic life coaching comes in as a simple and effective way to move to the other side of the stuck place.
Through the amazing combination of aromatherapy and holistic life coaching, I’ll take you on a journey to help you help yourself.
What will you get out of this website?
Since you are here, then you are looking for ways to take good care of your precious health especially if you don’t have regular access to healthcare. When you read a Scented Balance blog post or product description, you’re reading honest information about issues related to your wellbeing. Even if you don’t have the particular issue discussed that week, chances are you know someone who does.
I write about areas of concern where the art and science of aromatherapy combined with holistic life coaching create an ideal environment for you to take charge of your wellbeing.
I am a certified aromatherapist and holistic life coach trained by two of the best in their respective fields. Through intentionally educating myself in ways to protect my own precious health, I learned how aromatherapy and holistic life coaching can be of great use as additional alternatives to the healthcare system we have today.
From Andrea Butje at Aromahead Institute, I learned how to hone my own unique approach to aromatherapy. Andrea taught me chemistry, anatomy and physiology and how therapeutic-grade essential oils benefit the body, mind and spirit. From there, I learned my gift is to focus not only on the physical – and scientific – qualities of the oils but to look beyond your concerns and serve your emotional needs as well.
Through Annie Mascelli at Your Spirited Life, I learned deep listening and an even greater compassion for those who are stuck in every area of life. Annie taught me to use my knowledge and awareness as a tool for growth, not as a weapon for what might have been. In class after class, I learned that it’s all connected – body, mind and spirit and when I look for the root cause and not just the symptoms, everything falls into place. I learned to hone my gift of empathy which helps me serve those who were sexually abused as children and never had a healthy way to process what they went through.
These two beautiful souls showed me the gifts that were already there and gave me training – and a platform – to shine my light.
What Started This Whole Journey?
Initially, I created Scented Balance as a way to cut down on all the chemicals that I put on my face and body; a way to preserve my precious health. Ah sweet serendipity!
Around these parts my buds know I love the ocean, an awesome glass of wine, the beautiful flowers in my container garden and smacking the snot out of a golf ball. No particular order, just depends on the day. For the moment, I am based in Winston-Salem, NC but my dream is to live in Savannah, GA – I absolutely LOVE this beautiful city! So, if you hear of any opportunities that fit my skills, give me a shout – okay?
We each have special gifts to bring to the world and my mission is to help you shine your light as brightly as possible. You absolutely deserve love, respect and an amazing life of your choice. I have the tools to get you to the other side where your light is shining.
