When people walk into our store they usually take a deep breath and then say, “wow, it smells amazing in here! What is that?” The scent that pervades the shop is a mixture of tea, herbal incense, natural perfume, and of course, essential oils, which we are constantly diffusing, spraying, blending, and applying throughout the day.
