It’s only been 17 days since I closed my brick and mortar shop. For some reason, on about day 2 or 3, I thought I could ride this thing out with some semblance of ease. Then came a series of sleepless nights, uncontrollable panic, and fear over selfishly wondering how I would survive the onslaught of COVID related crap that we have all been inundated with. When I say crap, I’m not talking about the actual facts that we have been presented with. I’m talking about all the other senseless clatter that has sprung up from every corner. Companies are suddenly aggressively promoting “lung tea” and “magic bullet” immune boosters, and herbal supplements that will help you now more than ever…blah, blah, blah. I get it, people are just trying to make a living, but there is a fine line between running a business and profiting from people’s fear.
In some ways, I feel like we are really coming together as compassionate and empathic human beings. I love what local businesses are doing in my community to adapt to a very difficult situation and I am grateful for that. In other ways, it seems like it’s every person, and/or, company for themselves. Turbulent times seem to bring out the very best and the very worst of humanity. At the end of the day, I think we are all in this for the long haul. It’s time for my great Pandemic Pivot…
I admit that I have really been struggling on where I fit into all of this. After all, I own and operate a company that, in essence does not just sell essential oils, I put a lot of focus on supporting people on their path to wellness. I take an enormous amount of pride in what I am able to offer my Healingscents community and I definitely never want to be seen as someone who is trying to profiteer from a pandemic. That goes against everything that I stand for on every single level. I do however need to eat, just like everyone else. So what I am offering you is this….
Head over to my website, have a look around and see what I have to offer. If you see something that you feel is going to help enhance your life right now or just make you feel better in the midst of all of this madness, then I am going to give you 25% off until the end of April. This is a big discount for me to offer, but I want to help you feel better and I also want to feed myself. So, really it's a win-win for everybody. I have an undying need for transparency, so there it is… all laid out on the table for you. If you have questions about a product, please get in touch with me. There are an enormous number of oils to choose from and I am always happy to help you with any aromatic decisions.
Yours in love and aromatics,
