The Aromatic Way was founded by Donna Lang, a certified aromatherapist, and trained graphic artist.  Donna’s interest in essential oils began in 1996 while researching alternative treatments for a medical condition.  She read every book she could find on aromatherapy, all the while blending and experimenting with essential oils.  She studied with Kurt Schnaubelt and Monika Haas and received her certification from Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy in 1998.  Not long after, she formulated the first version of Healing Balm for her partner, Mike, who had cut his fingertips in a table saw accident and required 23 stitches.  It worked quite well to heal the wounds and minimize scarring.

In the late '90s, Donna began formulating her own creams and body care products.  She noticed that the occasional red irritated patches of skin on her face disappeared, and her skin quality improved.  In 2001 she made her first batch of soap and gave it away for Christmas gifts.  It was a hit, and soon the Aromatic Way was born. 

Donna continues to keep up to date on the latest trends in the natural body care field, and attends aromatherapy conferences.  She is a member of the Handmade Beauty Network.  She wears most of the hats in the company, but gets inspiration from cats Ellie, Miss Brown, and Mr. Socks.

Donna’s definition of aromatherapy:  “The use of essential oils from plants to enhance the well being of an individual.”

Have an aromatic day!
