About Melissa

Howdy and welcome!

My name is Melissa Curran and I created Scented Balance with a simple mission:

To help you get, be and stay healthy through the power and wisdom of nature.

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

Why? Because, chances are great that healthcare – as we know it – will go away.

Then what?

If you’re 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

Maybe you live with chronic pain, digestive issues, anxiety, depression or you’re just beginning your menopause journey. Using pure essential oils can help you live your best life with greater ease.

What will you get From this website?

Since you’re here, then you’re 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 well-being. Even if you don’t have the particular issue discussed that week, chances are you know someone who does. About Melissa,

I write about the art and science of using pure essential oils and how simple and easy it is for you to take control of your wellness without taking yet another pill that may cause all sorts of nasty side effects.

You’ll find solid information about alternative modes such as reiki, acupuncture, chiropractic, reflexology and other therapies. I want you to have solid, honest information that you can count on so you’re aware of and informed about what’s out there.

Why I’m an aromatherapist

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.  Let's Calm Down With Lavender

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

Enduring a long and frustrating medical fiasco led me on a journey to find an alternative. That journey led me to pure essential oils. I understand their power as natural medicine so I kept learning, ultimately earning my certification.

I’m a certified aromatherapist trained by one of the best in the field. Through intentionally educating myself in ways to protect my own precious health, I learned how aromatherapy is ideal as an alternative to the expensive and broken healthcare system we have today.

Through Aromahead Institute, I learned to hone my own unique approach to aromatherapy. 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.

Initially, I looked 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 health.

From there, it took off to become Scented Balance, Inc. Aromatherapy, a place to share all the information I learned so that you wouldn’t have to go through what I did to get and stay healthy.

A Bit About Your (Favorite) Aromatherapist

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 a joy in my life. Growing up, 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?

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 to live the amazing life of your choice.
