Jacqui MacNeill, CEO & Founder
Jacqui MacNeill, a Vancouver native, an outdoor enthusiast, and lover of all things nature, first discovered essential oils while travelling at the age of 23. She began to study the benefits of plant-derived ingredients and was amazed by the power essential oils have to heal, inspire and transform one’s body and mind. Jacqui had found her true passion!
That passion would later be the key ingredient in surviving her largest life obstacle: suffering a life-threating seizure while 38 weeks pregnant with twins and undergoing two brain surgeries.
Not only did she overcome this obstacle, but she also took her life learnings and love of all things natural and created something incredibly special. She created Escents Aromatherapy, one of Canada's most recognized and well-loved essential oil brands.
Scent has been scientifically proven to improve memory, generate positive feelings by triggering past sensors, and assist in the generation of hope and positivity. It allowed Jacqui’s body and mind to enter a state that allowed true healing to begin and flourish. After 12 years and countless months of in-hospital recovery, Jacqui cannot imagine her journey without the power of plants, herbs and scent and her belief and knowledge in essential oils.
Today, Jacqui has grown the Escents Aromatherapy brand from one stand-alone kiosk to an international brand with over 68 retail locations across Asia and Canada, a growing eCommerce presence, and an expanding wholesale offering, including a partnership with Air Canada, Eva Air and Hello Kitty Air.
The Escents goal is to be the global leader and bring you the most top quality ingredients in essential oils, natural wellness, and plant-based personal care products.
