My Mission at Scented Balance Inc Healing Arts

My mission is to create plant-based products and offer holistic services for wellness in body, mind and spirit so that you have choices in your healthcare journey.
Melissa Curan
Owner / Holistic Practitioner

I absolutely love pure essential oils.

I love them. I use a handful of my own products. Every. Single. Day.

I believe they’re one of the reasons I’m healthy and vibrant well into my sixties.

Why I’m An Aromatherapist and Holistic Practitioner

In the aromatherapy world, I’m the underdog. I’m here to help you fight the good fight for your health, wealth and happiness.

There’s a lot of misinformation floating around especially about using pure essential oils and their benefits. And there may be some alternative options to Western medicine that you don’t know about but could help you on your healthcare journey.

I aim to do my part to change all that. 

One way to challenge the medical mafia is by making simple and effective products that actually enhance your health instead of causing nasty side effects (which brings its’ own set of problems).

I want you to be empowered about your health, not frustrated and lost (I’ve been there).

Fun Facts About Me

Those who know me best (my beautiful tribe) know my love for the ocean and digging in the dirt. :0)Melissa Curran. certified aromatherapist, holistic life coach

Along with that love of the ocean, I also appreciate a good glass of wine, the beautiful flowers in my container gardens and smacking the snot out of a golf ball. No particular order, just depends on the day. Oh – and coffee is the elixir of the gods – just sayin’.

I’m blessed with an adult son, beautiful daughter-in-law and four awesome grandchildren. Won’t bore you with a bunch of details about them; suffice it to say they’re the joy of my life. As little kids, my grandchildren knew I came to PLAY with them – I’ve taught them to play golf so that we’ll have something in common when we all get older. Smart, eh?

Want to know what makes me tick? My favorite things keep me smiling and just might bring a ray of sunshine to you, too!

We each have our own special brand of magic to bring to the world and my mission is to help you shine your magical light as brightly as possible.

You absolutely deserve to live the amazing life of your choice and I believe the healing arts provide powerful tools to help you live your best life.

I believe in the power of aromatherapy to transform your life.

Enduring a long and frustrating medical fiasco took me on a journey to find an alternative to the toxic medical culture and the ingrained bias against women.

Adding to all that, my whole life had completely collapsed. Nothing left but rubble. I was emotionally and physically burned out with nothing to hold onto.

As serendipity would have it, I came across an ad for aromatherapy school. I felt my heart leap – something good coming out of the ash heap of my so-called life. I clicked through and found my saving grace in the power of pure essential oils.

I understand their power as natural medicine for body, mind and spirit so I earned my certification in aromatherapy. The next logical step for me was Reiki, the Japanese technique for stress and relaxation.

Trained by the best in the field, I learned the honest truth about what aromatherapy can (and can’t) do and I honed my own unique approach.

Through intentionally educating myself in ways to protect my own precious health, I learned how aromatherapy is ideal as an alternative to the biased, expensive and broken healthcare system we have today.

My gift is to focus not only on the physical – and scientific – qualities of pure essential oils but to look beyond your concerns and serve your emotional needs as well.

I searched for a viable way to cut down on all the chemicals that I put on my face and body; to help heal my damaged thyroid, heal my burned out adrenal system and to preserve my precious emotional and physical health.

From there, it grew to be Scented Balance, Inc Healing Arts, a sacred and safe space to share all the information I learned so that you wouldn’t have to go through what I did to get, be and stay healthy.

I’m all about honesty and integrity. It makes me crazy to hear about people who push essentials oils as miracle cures.

They’re not.

There is no miracle cure for any health condition at all. Period. Healing is up to YOU – I just happen to have amazing tools that make it easier for your body to find its balance.

At Scented Balance Inc Healing Arts, you’ll find honest information about complementary forms of healthcare throughout my website to help you with everyday concerns before they become full blown issues.

When you stay ahead of life’s everyday wellness issues, you keep them from getting out of hand – needlessly.

What’s Here For You?

Since you’re here, then you’re looking for a better way to take care of your precious health especially if you don’t have regular access to healthcare (not all of us do).

Tired of spending money on drug store stuff that doesn’t work for your chronic pain, eczema, indigestion or anxiety?

You know the prescriptions that you get from your doctor are full of toxic chemicals – right? You take them but you don’t feel as good as you used to.

Have you connected the dots yet?

I work with over 200 pure essential oils and plant-based ingredients to carefully handcraft products that help you with a range of concerns and emotions particularly chronic pain and stress. I’ve personally researched each pure essential oil and every ingredient to ensure they’ll do the most good for your unique situation.

Reiki and Acupressure are modalities known to help you manage your pain and stress. They go hand in hand with aromatherapy to help you feel your personal best.

When you visit the Scented Balance aromatherapy and healing arts studio, you’ll find a safe space to ask questions without judgment. No question is “too weird” or “too personal”. I had nowhere to turn with my questions and I won’t let that happen to you.

I’m here to help you whether you’re just beginning your quest for knowledge or you’ve been at this for a while and you’re frustrated with the lack of results.

There’s a big gap between help and healing and, as a certified aromatherapist and Reiki Master practitioner, I’m here to bridge that gap. That’s my gift to you and that gift is waiting for you in a safe and sacred space!

When you read a Scented Balance blog post or product description, you’re reading honest information about issues related to your well-being. Even if you don’t have the particular issue being discussed, chances are you know someone who does.

Along with aromatherapy, you’ll find solid information about other alternative modes such as reiki, acupuncture, chiropractic, reflexology and other therapies.

You need the truth (even when it isn’t pretty) so you’re aware and informed of what’s out there to help you make sound healthcare choices.

I invite you to join my community. 

I send out an email every so often with the real truth about everyday issues that can keep you from living your best life along with something on sale, so join the Scented Balance community today!
