AWCo. Team

Together, we build community and share our knowledge and continued learnings with like-minded individuals.  We collaborate with like minded users (of oils) who are experts in their respective fields to combine forces and bring you the juiciest workshops on the circuit.  We also have fun challenging the preconceived ideas of what an 'essential oil user' may look like, some of our delightful friends are below.
Alternative health is inclusive, it's for everyone.

Elaine So - Founder

I'm lucky, that's who I am.  For so many years now I have been lucky enough to have my mother Rani's and her partner Mark's experience of alternative health practices as my go-to.  Without hesitation, they have been like my alternative health 'hotline'.

From a career in hospitality, opening cafes and creating communities and some of my closest friendships with customers and work colleagues to being part of Pana Chocolate and founding and selling ACE cookies, I've now found myself right here.  

Exactly where I need to be and exactly where I want to be.  

Organic, chemical-free, appreciative, kind and considerate living.  A place where sharing is something we do without attachment to outcomes, support is something we give freely, and genuine connection is something we thrive on.
