Darcy Lidell - Creative Director

Darcy Lidell, M.A. conceptualised Scents of Peace after finding it difficult to find high-quality, natural aromatherapy body care that smell great and actually work.

Originally from the United States, Darcy lived in New York and Florida. From early on, she has had an interest in aromatherapy and the beneficial psycho-somatic effects of different scents.

In 2000, Darcy graduated with her Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Psychology. Furthering her education, she acquired a Master of Arts in Communication and Technology in 2004 before travelling and eventually settling down in Nelson, New Zealand.  You can find Scents of Peace at local festivals and fairs or visit us in the shop and studio in Atawhai by appointment.
