It’s also Mental Health Awareness Month which means we should all take the time to focus on the importance of our mental health. Explore new ways to maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle. And always remember that it’s okay to seek help when you need it. 

Join us for our first ever Mental Health Awareness event where we’ll be supplying essential oils and spray bottles so you can make your very own mood-lifting aroma blends. There will also be snacks, refreshments and chill music to vibe and relax to.
