How about a skincare company that shares this image and saying? You don’t see this every day, right?! And there are MORE where that came from-Organic, eco- and mindfulness-oriented all at the same time! Self-Care and global LOVE and HEALING all beautifully wrapped up in the world of “Presence.”

Petal is one of my favorite light and fresh Zents scents!

My personal journey with Zents started six years ago when I picked up an organic body oil that smelled DIVINE- light in fragrance  and yet luxurious on my body. I am extremely sensitive to smell with a preference to light,  fresh smells, and of course this one was perfect, especially after an evening bath or morning shower. As you, my readers know, I only purchase organic products and these are special, for many reasons, trust me.  According to this company, ZENTS scents are created for people who don’t normally enjoy aroma or who are sensitive to scent. As noted in their company description, “ZENTS is the fusion of ZEN and SCENTS.”

Upon doing my usual research, I discovered this AMAZING story behind this company-the healing, self-care and love!

Choose your Love Potion!

A life-changing car accident had left the founder, Cord Coen, with a brain injury, along with physical and chronic pain, intense migraines and almost complete loss of smell. When doctors informed him that he had “plateaued” in his healing process, he packed his bags and flew to India. While there, he healed, physically, emotionally, spiritually. Out of his healing experience, while he was there, his vision for Zents, was born. (To read more about Cord’s healing journey, click on the link at the end of this post.)

Readers, it is TOTALLY MY PLEASURE to introduce you to ZENTS, a Colorado based company with some pretty amazing things going on besides their fabulous organic skincare products. And be sure to check out the SPECIAL PROMO going on at the end of this post!

“Our story is a story about healing. It is about the choice to believe in the impossible, to reach for the light within, and to never give up on our dreams. The experiences that led us here are deeply personal. Yet, our story is so much more than simply who we are. The true meaning of our story lies within you.”

“ZENTS was, is, and will always be about you. What makes you smile? What inspires you? What are you passionate about? What makes you feel special… powerful… sexy? What is your dream? We are excited you are here and hope you will stay, join our community, and help us continue to create this beautiful story. Your story. Our story.

Since discovering these wonderful products, I’ve become a passionate endorser and supporter of Zents! There are LOTS of great organic skincare products out there but none that I’ve found with this unique commitment to “gentle, safe fragrances, self-care and love at home and globally.

This is WHY I Love and Continue to Support ZENTS

  • Zero use of dangerous parabens, dyes and phthalates in their products
  • Zero Animal Testing
  • Daily Improvement in the lives of women in Africa, India and England in the development of Zents products
  • Product creation using soy inks and recyclable packaging, buying from local vendors
  • Minimal carbon footprint through the use of 100% wind energy
  • Fosters a work culture based on kindness and goodness
  • Their soft fragrances with a NO Fragrance line as well

Their oils, lotions and soaps are truly luxurious!

The BONUS Reason WHY I LOVE LOVE this Company!

The creation of Seva (which means selfless service in Sanskrit), a sustainable giving program to helps individuals and organizations in local communities born from a desire to give back.

The Zents team has chosen organizations whose mission it is to serve in the following areas:

Zents has been featured in over 300 national and international publications-I believe this is due to all of the reasons I’ve listed above. How can you not like a company that CARES about everyone they work WITH and FOR, from the people in Africa, India and England to giving back and creating high quality organic skincare products that make you say ahhhhh! This is SPA ahhhh! And you can enjoy in your own home!

I love that they value and offer this unscented line too!

While most of their products are used and sold by trained professionals in the spa industry, the products can be purchased at a few retail locations and online. I find the pricing very reasonable given the quality of the products, the many helping hands in the creation of their quality products, their values and the story of their founder. You don’t find this many WINS with other companies out there.

Product offerings include body oil, lotion, soap, eau de toilettes, bath truffles, body washes and packaged sets. And back to their amazing scents- Mandarin, Fresh, Earth, Petal, Anjou, Oolong, Sun, Water and Fig. (Since I love clean smells, my two favs are Fresh and Petal. My most recent purchase was the Anjou which has a light, clean pear fragrance) Given their “mindfulness” they all offer a NonZented or no fragrance product for those of you with fragrance sensitivities.

Most of you know that I tend toward pure oils like almond and coconut because they’re not loaded with chemicals. I’ve been known to make many of my own body scrubs and use essential oils for fragrance and wellness. I recently tried one of their bath truffles and let me just say, I’ll be ordering MORE!! I toweled off feeling silky smooth with just the hint of Anjou pear fragrance. What a way to jump in bed for my nightly Zzzz’s!

However, since discovering Zents, they have become one of my top skincare “splurges.” This year I want to focus more on the theme of Self-Love and Self-Care. If you haven’t tried these divine products, I highly encourage you to treat yourself. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Use one alone or in combination with each another, too!  Zents is a company that clearly sends a message of Self-Care as seen in their own work culture, with their eco-focused products and how they impact everyone in each stage of the creation of their products. Truly, what’s not to love?

    Hopefully they’ll make products for men at some point?

    • Christy Begien  April 27, 2018

      Wouldn’t you know that their ORE fragrance sells quite well, to men, Mike, even though most of their products are targeted to women.
      Be on the lookout for a Father’s Day promo here!
