Meet The Experts.

Pat Princi Jones.

Aromatherapy advocate and specialist Pat Princi-Jones first became interested in essential oils when she was introduced to the exotic scent of jasmine blooms more than 30 years ago and she has never looked back. With a background in teaching, she first established her aromatherapy career in the 1990s as a trainer for In Essence and then went on to become the education manager for the brand. As an associate member of IAAMA, International Aromatherapy & Aromatic Medicine Association Pat has kept abreast of current trends in the industry, and promotes the principles of safe practice for this natural therapy. 

Today, she is best known for her engaging and inspiring teachings on the therapeutic power of Pure Essential Oils in the aromatherapy retail sector throughout Australasia.

‘In Essence continues to provide me with the finest pure essential oils for my health and wellbeing. Whenever I feel under pressure, in need of reassurance, balance or tranquilly, the oils have never let me down. They are my constants in a fast-paced world.’

Pat’s most recent achievement is the release of her very own book, A Scented Life – Aromatherapy Reimagined (available online and through selected book stores).

By Pat Princi-Jones

A Scented Life is a journey into the senses, bringing this ancient practice of Aromatherapy into today’s world. Aromatic essences have been used since antiquity in medicine, incense, cosmetics, perfumes and ritual worship. Aromatherapy expert Pat Princi-Jones takes us through a selection of pure essential oils extracted from plants that are used as remedies for emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. The healing properties of essential oils can relieve headaches, muscular pain, and cold and flu symptoms. A few drops in your skincare regime can increase hydration, treat acne and regenerate damaged skin. What’s more, essential oils can shift your mood, improve your sleep patterns and lower feelings of anxiety to make you feel restored, relaxed and renewed. 

Within the beautiful pages of A Scented Life, you will discover what different essential oils can do for you and the many ways to mix and apply them in your daily life for maximum long-term benefits. 

“Scent is a powerful bridge between ourselves and nature. We find it in those moments when we pick a garden rose and inhale its perfume, or collect a sprig of mint and rub it between our fingers, or breathe in the scent of a bitter orange tree in full bloom. All else stops as we strive to capture the scent: elusive, yet remarkably beautiful.”

Dr Carmel Harrington.

“We’ve lost discipline around sleep and we are only just beginning to realise the importance of sleep, because we have a lack of it”  – Dr Carmel Harrington

We are thrilled to introduce Dr Carmel Harrington as our expert advisor on all things sleep here at In Essence.

Dr Carmel Harrington has been working in the world of sleep for nearly 20 years. A former lawyer and educator she has a PHD in Sleep Medicine from Sydney University and consults with companies and educational institutions both here and overseas on sleep health.

An internationally recognised sleep expert, Dr Harrington is amazed at the seemingly little importance given to sleep. Research shows that sleep is critical to our physical and mental health and is fundamental to our ability to think and learn. Emerging research clearly shows that sleeping well is a key component to optimal performance and health and if we want to be at the top of our game we need to ensure we get the best sleep possible.

Dr Harrington is the Managing Director of Sleep for Health and an Honorary Research Fellow at the Children’s Hospital Westmead. She is a founding member of the Sleep Health Foundation and a member of the Australasian Sleep Association. She has written two books “The Sleep Diet” (MacMillan Press 2012) and “The complete guide to a good night’s sleep” (MacMillan Press 2014)
