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.
They are so nurturing and complimentary in my life. Couldn't and wouldn't want to live without them now. True bliss!

I am excited to hear about "Scents of Peace" and enjoyed sending my present to people who will appreciate this special product made from nature. My own engagement with their event itself was intensified through finding the beautiful oil, Darcy's helpful delivery and her personal touches to make it pretty.
That's a gift in itself, to all of us, giver and receiver, and a tribute to Scents of Peace.
I adore the layered beauty of the scent blends. My family loves the Sweet Dreams blend for helping us fall asleep.
I walked into Darcy's office and there was this most AMAZING smell that put me in a peaceful, calming zone. She made up the same blend for me. So happy. I have since bought more product and will continue to support this awesome wee business. Well done Darcy.
Firstly, I love all your products (heart emoticon). My favourite at the moment is the "Elevation" body spray. It’s a beautiful fragrance – lovely to mist over myself, linen, rooms in the house - everywhere.
Secondly, I totally support your commitment to all the values I hold dear - no animal testing, natural, environmentally sensitive packaging choices, alcohol-free, aerosol-free and so forth.
And thirdly, my purchases are always delivered with care and a smile - to complete the perfect transaction.
"When I returned from holiday recently my hands looked and felt like a reptile shedding his/her skin! They were just awful. I have always had trouble with dry hands but this was something else!
Keen to give anything a go, I purchased Oregon Dreams organic lotion.
Well, the results have been nothing short of miraculous… within three days I noticed my hands felt much softer and the ‘scaling’ was reducing. Within a week my hands looked and felt wonderful, with only a very small trace of the largest bit of scaling left. My hands have never felt better and I will continue to use this product for the foreseeable future.
Thank you Scents of Peace for introducing this product to me."
"It's amazing the power scents can have over your senses.
One sniff of Oregon Dreams and I was instantly transported back to a beach in Egypt 6 years earlier, smelling a mixture of the fresh breeze off the sea, the aroma of chocolate pancakes from my favourite stall and the sweet perfumes of the local bazaar, where a man with teeth as white as his turban would rub droplets on to your wrist from beautiful glass bottles, then insist "very good quality, very good price!" with a huge grin.
The picture was so clear it was startling, and I couldn't help but order Reed Diffusers from Darcy, a very smiley and enthusiastic lady, so that my entire home could remind of that moment.
I would recommend "Scents of Peace" to anyone in search of a personal and memorable scent, crafted by someone with knowledge and passion for their work."
"I love Scent of Peace, Darcy is truly in love with what she does making her products something to die for! She puts in so much times and energy making sure that all of her products are perfect.
I trust the products because Darcy would not put anything out that she didn't personally test out herself - she spends a lot of time creating scents and that is why I use her products. Thanks for everything I use it everyday!!"
