Hi I’m Melissa, founder of Melissa Allen Mood Essentials

A fragrance lover from a young age, but growing up with a broken family with divorced parents, I felt like I wasn't quite living my best life, that I was somehow not "good enough".

Until one day, I decided that this was not going to keep being my life, and I decided to pack up my life, start a new one, where I moved to the city, met my now husband, received a personal video message from Richard Branson on my wedding day (someone who always inspired me) and to now have gone onto launch my own business.

Discovering the power of essential oils turned out to be life changing - they can help you feel calm in the chaos, lift you up when you're low, inspire you to keep going and help you find balance in the midst of overwhelm.

So with a big idea and a small budget, I took a giant leap of faith to create a modern range to reclaim the power of fragrance for good. To calm, uplift, balance and inspire, surfacing our best selves using natural mood-boosting essential oils, helping to reconnect to our true self.

The journey wasn't easy; there were no big budgets, or magical guide.

There were mistakes, there were tears. Comfort zones were well and truly shattered. But we got here in the end, and I've let myself off the hook for all those imperfections, both in business and in life.

Because we all have the right to shine, in all our perfect imperfection.

So for all the dreamers, the doers, the battlers and the believers.

We've got this. You've got this.

(And we smell great doing it).

Thanks for being here.
