The best part? People hug my neck and tell me how wonderful I smell.
My name is Melissa Curran and I created Scented Balance with a simple mission:
To create plant-based products and offer holistic services for wellness in body, mind and spirit providing viable effective alternatives so that you have choices in your healthcare journey.
Why I’m An Aromatherapist
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).
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 that bit of “joy”, 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 one of 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. Aromatherapy, 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.
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, you’ll find honest information about alternative and 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?
Honestly, Western medicine has let us down. I believe using nature’s medicine makes us all stronger in body, mind and spirit.
I work with nearly 200 pure essential oils and plant-based ingredients to carefully handcraft products that help you with a range of concerns and emotions. I’ve personally researched each pure essential oil and every ingredient to ensure they’ll do the most good for your unique situation.
When you visit the Scented Balance aromatherapy shop, 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 discussed that week, 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.
Fun Facts About Me
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 may bring a ray of sunshine to you, too!
