Studio Aroma is a Vancouver based company created by certified aromatherapist Jennifer Chow. She makes the products, provides aromatherapy consultations and aromatic energy healing. We’ve been using her products for a few weeks now and absolutely love them. Especially the coffee scrub!
Jennifer says it is her passion that motivated her to become a professional alternative health practitioner. She obtained qualifications in psychology, aromatherapy, chromo – therapy, meditation, and other massage methods.
Here’s what she told us about what inspired her to start her business:
During my teenage years, I was suffering from acne on my face until I began using a facial product manufactured by a famous Asian brand. When I thought I had found the best product to resolve my problem, after just two weeks of use, I realized the product began causing other issues for me. My family doctor told me these problems were caused by steroids from the product and I must stop using it. With no luck in pre – made facial products or prescriptions from the doctor, I picked essential oils and unscented skin products and learned how to blend them to fix my acne.
I have been customizing skin care products with essential oils for over 10 years now. The idea of establishing my own brand was after years of observation and trying many products on the market. Studio Aroma was officially launched online in October 2014. Our products were first seen at craft show one month later in Vancouver.
Do you have a morning routine or ritual to get your day started?
My daily routine is beginning with cleansing, hydrating, repairing, and then protection. Products applied in the follow order, Cleansing Gel – Rose & Pearl Mask – Hydrosol Toner – Eye Serum – Rosey Collagen Serum (or Q10 Dew) – SPF Day Cream – and Lip Gloss.
What is your goal with Studio Aroma?
Our next focus is to promote our therapies. We believe helping clients to address their weak points and go through traditional aromatherapy or our energy-combined therapy could effectively bring them a balanced body and soul; this is could also enhance their skin condition from the inside out. We are seeking a new location and hope to provide a comfortable environment to both retail and service clients in the near future.
What would you do if you had one week to escape?
I would love to go to Europe and stay in a country home for a week, enjoying the beauty of country side and the aroma of the city. As most essential oil originally is from Europe, I feel there’s nothing better than going back to the root of where aromatherapy is created.
Tell us about your favourite or most popular product and why?
Eye Serum is one of Studio Aroma’s signature products and is our best seller. I see customers from different age groups purchasing our eye serum. I am glad that many young ladies start taking care of their skin in their early twenties to prevent wrinkles. Like some of our customers who work as flight attendants and need to put on make up almost everyday, they found that our eye serum effectively soothes and hydrates their skin after they remove their make up.
