Today we’d like to introduce you to Diamond Sellers.
Hi Diamond, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I moved to St. Louis right after I graduated high school to expand my worldview and education. I graduated college from the University of Missouri-St. Louis with my bachelor’s in educational studies with a focus in early childhood development. I really enjoyed being an infant care special because I was able to help mothers and their newborns adapt to their new lives in a holistic way.
My original goal was to open an early learning center after graduation. Unfortunately, Covid 19 hit a couple of months after I graduated. Because of this, learning centers and schools were closing. As a result of the added stress of the world, more people were looking for ways to focus on their self-care for their bodies and mind. Candles have been the go-to for relaxation for many years. Candles have always played a big part in my holistic life, so I had also noticed the negative effects that they can also have. For example, headaches and sinus issues that a lot of people start to develop but ignore because they love candles. Me wanting to change this is what lead me to create Scented Silhouettes LLC. I started handcrafting essential oil-infused candles and oil lamps. Scented Silhouettes has been in business for a year and six months and we have helped thousands of people build a relaxing and energy-flowing atmosphere.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
All-natural and toxic-free products is what Scented Silhouettes is based on. Being able to find ingredients that pass my quality control standards has been my only struggle. When I decided to create my own formulated scents, I was able to better regulate the health of each product. When you are not inventing the wheel but just readjusting it, people are used to the original. When I first launched Scented Silhouettes, I got a lot of requests for colored candles because all of my candles are naturally white. I do not add color because candle colorants are toxic and are not healthy to inhale for long periods of time. I was worried that this would hold us back. After actively educating and having meaningful conversations with my loyal customer’s health became more important and the spread of our essential oil-infused candles spread.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Scented Silhouettes LLC?
