After spending over 10 years working for a worldwide transport company, I noticed that my well being, and that of my family, was being affected by the stress of a modern day busy life. With that and a history of depression and anxiety, I made the biggest decision of my life and decided it was time for a change, a time to do something I enjoyed and time to put ME first. In 2017, with the full support of my husband, I took charge of my life and left my role with no plans on what I was going to do with my future. For anyone with Anxiety you will know that making such a big decision with no idea where your life is going is terrifying. However, this only made me stronger and with a passion for aromatherapy and alternative stress relief Essbe and the Aromas of Tranquillity was created.
My life is completely different now and i can spend time with the kids. The weight has completely lifted off my shoulders and I feel like i'm a different person! Could not have done this without my husband, my rock and the bill payer!!!
My products currently consist of candles, reed diffusers and wax melts, made by myself at home in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
The suppliers i use are carefully selected for quality and ethically sourced ingredients.
I am always testing new fragrances to add to the collections. As it can take months of testing and be very expensive to get it just right, nothing gives me more satisfaction than when i get good feedback about a candle, it reminds me that the hard work was worth it.
Here is some information on the products and why i use them.
I love making candles with this natural wax. Soy candles are made from soybeans, a natural, renewable source grown in many regions by local farmers. No toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means our candles are less likely to trigger allergies. And no petrol-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles.
DIFFUSER BASE OIL
The diffuser base is a state of the art diffuser base pioneered using innovative technology from Soya based renewable resources. It is non-toxic, low in carbon footprint and low in odour, giving it a superior performance.
When choosing my packaging i was looking for simple, natural looking, eco-friendly and made from recycled materials. The boxes i ended up with ticked all the boxes!
I use two different oils in my products, fragrance oils and natural essential oils for aromatherapy. All the oils i use are vegan friendly, and are both paraben & phthalate free.

I am currently working towards a range of hand wash and hand/body lotion. The range i look to release will be palm oil and alcohol free.
AROMAS OF TRANQUILLITY
How does it work?
Aromatherapy activates areas in your nose called smell receptors, which send messages through your nervous system to your brain.
The aroma activates certain areas of your brain, like your limbic system, which plays a role in your emotions. They also have an impact on your hypothalamus, which may respond to the aroma by creating feel-good brain chemicals like serotonin.
