  • How to add fragrance oils to your candles the correct way.

Michelle See has had a long and interesting career starting out at 15 as a hairdresser and later a beauty therapist. After Michelle had her children she opened and operated her own retail shops. During this time, she also used her marketing knowledge to advise other small businesses on marketing, strategy, and customer relations.

Following this Michelle ran a direct marketing company and within a few years had turned this into a thriving company. Going on to be named the CEO Michelle continued in this role for 12 years, growing this business to over 300 staff in three countries and then going on to start her own company. Unfortunately, because of her many health battles at that time, she was forced to retire.

Michelle’s life took a dramatic turn when she was diagnosed with a serious illness requiring extensive surgery. All of this illness has culminated with Michelle searching for natural ways to help her eliminate toxins from her body and her home. Michelle now teaches workshops in naturally handmade, some would be considered “old fashioned” DIY ways, to make everything from preserves to skincare.

Michelle says “I actually grew up with a fabulous grandmother who was old school and made everything from scratch. So, I watched and learned and feel it is a real shame that today’s young people aren’t learning these skills and everything is purchased instead of handmade.”

Michelle also loves to upcycle and DIY to encourage less consumerism while also living luxe for less as she doesn’t feel that you have to compromise beauty for ethics. Michelle now lives with her husband in semi-retirement on an acreage property where she now aspires in spite of her illnesses to live her best life.
