This amazing journey began in 2018 when Kristin was first introduced to the world of essential oils. She never knew the many therapeutic uses they had along with their appeasing aromas. She wanted to incorporate them into the everyday lifestyle of her family.
While she was researching this, she came across information about the hidden toxins in our everyday products. Household cleaners, makeup, skin care, soap, shampoo...you name it, there were a variety of toxins all over. It has been estimated that the average person uses over 300 toxins just in daily bath and body care! She didn't want to continue exposing her family to these so she started making products herself.
Along the way, she realized that she can help others in making safer choices by sharing her knowledge, so she decided to expand and start offering her products to everyone else. She took her experiences and combined them with her love and passion for nature to create Essentially Unique!
In September 2021, Kristin and her husband Weston expanded even further and opened their first store - they wanted their customers to have a permanent location to shop at instead of waiting for the next show to arrive. Currently, there are over 30 different products in the store, and they are always adding more! Kristin is currently training in Formula Botanica's Organic Skincare Formulation program, so look forward to seeing what other unique products she comes out with!
Meet The Team
My name is Kristin and I am the mastermind behind Essentially Unique! I have an immense passion for nature and Mother Earth. You can always catch me walking around my yard barefoot or picking a random herb.
I am currently a Registered Nurse, working on my Aromatherapy certification, as well a student in the International Diploma of Organic Skincare Formulation Program at Formula Botanica. I am also in the process of obtaining a Doctorate in Natural Medicine! In the future, Essentially Unique will be transformed into a Naturopathic clinic where we will offer our amazing handcrafted self care items, as well as natural health services!
I'm Weston - Kristin's other half and the manager of our physical store location. I'm the face that you see most often when you stop in to visit. I guess you could also say I'm her guinea pig! I assist in formulating a portion of our products, as well as managing our in-store crystal inventory.
