Who and how
Yakov Morris is the heart and soul of Natural Scents. He founded his business in Melbourne in 1992 before relocating to Kuranda in Far North Queensland in 1994.
Yakov first became passionate about Aromatherapy after experiencing the profound effects of the Essential Oil of Grapefruit whilst in his brother’s Aromatherapy Steam Tube. While working with his brother at a Mind, Body and Spirit Festival, Yakov met Ron Guba of Essential Therapeutics, a well-known and respected Natural Therapies company. And this is how Yakov learnt of Ron's Aromatherapy Certificate Course and decided to attend.
Yakov completed the course, loving every minute of it! He then quit his job at a robotics and automation company and went to work with Ron for two amazing years.
Journeying north in his Coaster Bus, his partner was attacked by sand-flies and was very distressed with the terrible itching they caused. He immediately set about formulating a cream that would hopefully help soothe her discomfort.
This product is our now well-known and trusted Tropical Relief Soothing Cream. Yakov truly believes his creation was Divinely Inspired. This was the birth of the unique product range that now makes up Natural Scents’ offering.
Yakov and Deb met in 2015. Deb contributes her creative and organisational abilities to the business side of things, while also caring for people in her community with her massage and other healing art forms.What Yakov does
Yakov handcrafts our personal care products with love using quality, sustainable and ethically grown and processed ingredients. He also purchases a large range of essential oils, bottles and labels them in affordable quantities.
He makes our products in small batches to preserve the integrity of each ingredient to deliver the gifts of nature to you. Yakov aims to support you in your daily life with natural and clean personal care products.
We hope you enjoy using our genuine aromatherapy products as much as we enjoy making them.
Love and Light,
Deb and Yakov
