So, you’ve reached the end of your candle and you’re wondering what to do now.

Our First Time...

They say you never forget your first time, and boy were they right. We were unprepared. We both had no idea what we were doing. Too much of this, not enough of that. It’s too hot, it’s too cold. One of us was into things the other was not. Bottom line...starting a business from the ground up for the first time in a pandemic has been an experience we will never forget. When we decided to open The Olfactory Lab, we really had no idea what we were in for. After many bad candles, a few tears, and a lot of research we are now ready to show you what sustainable high-quality aromatherapy looks, feels, (and of course) smells like. Our...
