Hello there! My name is Michelle Johnson and I have been using essential oils since 2017.

I was first drawn to the world of essential oils and aromatherapy by our Director of Social Interactions, Alaina! She opened my eyes to how many chemicals and toxins there were in the candles I was using around my home, and the shock of that reality stuck with me. I was all in.

I truly love essential oils because they impact each and every person differently. While some people may get discouraged about this, I love to dive into research and see what will work best for our next client! I also have a passion for essential oil research, which I study on a regular basis. I hope to be able to begin distilling my own essential oils in the near future as well!

JENNY CLEMANS
MARKETING STRATEGIST

Hello there! My name is Jenny and I have been using essential oils since 2019.

I was drawn to essential oils to help with my one dog's separation anxiety. We had tried everything with her and decided to diffuse a calm blend in our diffuser. When we got home, she was not barking like crazy but instead was totally relaxed. That's when I new my love for essential oils had started!

 

I love Ampersand Essentials because of the focus on putting quality ingredients in their products. Quality is key, especially when looking for products that are safe for our family with multiple dogs and loads of allergies! When offered the opportunity to join the Ampersand Marketing Team, I wanted to join because I love sharing about products I love, and I LOVE Ampersand Essentials' products. Social media is one of the best ways to showcase products we all love and I cannot wait to market these amazing products and everything Ampersand Essentials stands for.
