How it all began...
The Golden Secrets all started over 25 years ago when I was first introduced to essential oils. I loved learning about the different qualities and effects that they had on my state of mind and overall well-being. I was constantly making unique blends to help me with daily issues when one formula stuck out from the rest. It seemed to have a special magic about it that I had never experienced before and every time I wore it, people would ask me what it was I was wearing. This went on for 25 years!
Over a decade ago, I started a blog called The Golden Secrets, where I shared my love of health, fitness, and spirituality and continue to this day. As a yoga teacher, Holistic health practitioner, single mother, model, and woman living with Rheumatoid Arthritis, I had collected a lot of insight on the importance of organic, holistic health and a positive mindset. I loved sharing all the tools that had helped me overcome and thrive. At this same time, a friend of mine, who I really admired in business and who had always complimented me on my Golden Secrets scent said, why don't you bottle that and put it on your website...so I did. I made 100 bottles and put them on my website and it took off!
"This little bottle of oil has helped me so much in my life, I just wanted to share it with the world."
The First Bottles
Before the infamous roller ball Signature Blend Essential Oil Perfume we have now, we had a traditional essential oil bottle. The new bottle, same formula.
Fun fact: I have personally handcrafted over 20,000 bottles. Years of handcrafting was a labor of love. I used to say it was like a home-cooked meal. I knew there would come a time when I would have to stop making each bottle by hand if I wanted to be able to share TGS with the world. After years of searching for the right team to hand my baby over to, we are finally in manufacturing. I spent over two years and two hand surgeries, making sure that they had my formulas perfect before I transitioned.
