Meet the maker: Fragrant Rituals

We're getting to know the faces behind local makers and creators popping up at Westfield West Lakes between 20 - 23 August.

How you get started?

I grew up in Eastern Europe where using herbs, Chinese medicine and homemade potions is more of a norm than an alternative, I've always been curious about ingredients in skincare and fragrances. I remember spending ages in supermarket aisles reading shampoo and hand cream ingredient lists. To be completely honest, one of the main motivators for me to learn English as a teenager was to understand skincare labels. This along with the fact that I developed strong skin and fragrance sensitivity quite early has brought me on a journey of learning and then making my own skin products and remedies. In recent years I was
very fortunate to study natural perfumery, aromatherapy and herbalism from one of the advanced European schools which has made me confident formulator of organic skincare and apothecary remedies.

What inspires you most?

Nature in general and Australian nature in particular. I’m fascinated by the resilience, variety, and amazing medicinal qualities of Australian native plants.
I incorporate Australian herbs in my products and perfumes. Spending time in nature brings creative ideas for my new products. I’m also inspired by my customers. Every time I meet new people at markets or have private sessions I come up with new product ideas, new concepts and new perfumes. I also often get valuable advice from my friends and family.

Describe your workspace in three words...

Soft light, scent, alchemy

What advice do you have for other creatives starting out?

Be brave, follow your vision and don’t give up.

What's next for you and your brand, any exciting plans?

At the moment I handcraft my products in small batches but would love to connect with health stores and eco conscious businesses so more people can experience Fragrant Rituals wellness and beauty offerings.
