How bloody awesome would it be if life was perfect?……Where we enjoyed the perfect job, family, friends, lifestyle….Life was just happy and easy all time….Pretty bloody good I think…. 

However, snap back into reality where life is not always easy and even the person who seems to have everything still can face challenges at times….

Which brings me to why I started Melissa Allen Mood Essentials….I love my life but like a lot of people life has shown me life is not always easy…..

Rewind a little over 25 years ago when my parents separated and divorced, leaving a trail of destruction fuelling self doubt and low self esteem.   All contributing to many years of making wrong decisions resulting in bad jobs, relationships, bullying and emotional abuse….not much fun at all!

Keeping busy by working long hours and partying in my spare time was my way of dealing with these feelings, until one day I burnt myself out and realised I had to change my life…

Slowly but surely I started to re-build my life in a positive way and took the plunge where I decided to move from the unit I had bought myself in the suburbs to moving to the Big Smoke in the city and surrounding myself with positive things and people.

I always loved fragrances and the way they made me feel and more importantly always had this strong desire that one day I would be able to develop my own fragrances. 

Life at times isn’t always perfect but I have also learnt there is light at the end of the tunnel….and you can definitely learn to overcome hurdles and make life great…

With a strong belief that everyone has the right to feel good about themselves, and learning how the sense of smell can be used to help someone feel good, I wanted to make a range of fragrances for both men and woman that smelt amazing but also had a purpose to help people feel  good about themselves and life.  This was an idea that I kept with me for over 15 years until a few years ago when I grew my own self confidence to launch Melissa Allen Mood Essentials!

The sense of smell is closely linked with memory, probably more than any other senses, but aside from their memory inducing powers, certain scents can also do amazing things for our mind and body.  From stress relief to helping to boost confidence, certain aromas have a way of making an impact (and positively so).

My aim is to make a difference to this world and if my "Feel Good" Mood Essentials can help you become the best version of yourself I will be super happy! xx
