Meet Wendy Nichols, our founder

Musings 19.10.17

Few wellness brands can say that they were formed within the four walls of an operating room. Soothing Scents formally launched in 2004, but really started a few years before, when a nurse anesthetist from Maine was trying to figure out a way to lessen the discomfort of post-op nausea experienced by her hospital patients. That nurse anesthetist was Wendy Nichols (BSN, APRN, CRNA), founder and director of creative development at Soothing Scents Inc. We spoke to Wendy about how Soothings Scents began, how essential oils are gaining popularity in hospitals, and how to spot a bad essential oil product.

Our essential oils

Musings 06.03.17

When we started Soothing Scents almost 12 years ago, we entered the world of essential oil therapy from the opposite side of the spectrum that most manufacturers do: we came from the medical side.

So we had to learn about essential oils, and as with everything we do, we did so using a medical approach to research.
