Hi, I'm Bella Cirovic, founder and maker behind the soulful oils here at Intention Blends. I have always been intrigued by scent and its ability to transport us to a time and place nestled deep in our memory. For as long as I can remember, perfumes and oils have stirred something in my soul, making me feel alive and present to the world.
My love of blending oils began back in the mid 90's when I managed a natural skin care and cosmetics shop that featured a make your own oil blend bar. I spent hours creating custom blends for clients and of course, for myself.
That store eventually closed and I took some years off to have a baby and to devote myself fully to motherhood.
In 2014 I took part in a workshop at the Providence Perfume Company that reignited my passion for blending. From that day, I began delving into books and going to workshops to learn everything I could on the subject.
What are Intention Blends?
In the corner of my bedroom I set up a table and began crafting blends that not only smelled delicious, but leaned heavily on the emotional benefits of the essential oils to support how I wanted to show up in the world. These blends became tools I carried with me and applied often with heart based intention. This was my beginning.
I have since moved out of my bedroom and into a proper studio where I craft body oils, perfume oils, moon oils, face mists, and intention blends that support how you want to feel. I create my blends by seeking out the highest quality, all natural, and ethically sourced materials to create oils that feed the skin as well as the soul. I've managed to marry my loves of perfumery, aromatherapy, and herbalism for the purpose of lifting and supporting the mind, body, and spirit.
My studio is located in Northern NJ. I am super proud to be a maker in the growing NJ Handmade community. My oils are available for wholesale and are currently carried in local retail stores and massage studios.
