About Us

Scent from Nature was established in 2001 in the foot hills of the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia. 

Since 2004, Scent from Nature has been operating from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.

The founder of Scent from Nature is Christine Fenton. Christine is a Kamilaroi woman who is a clinically qualified Aromatherapist and holds a Diploma of Remedial Massage, and other modalities, including sports massage, cupping, hot stone treatments and reiki. In addition, Christine has a degree in Health Science – majoring in Nutrition, including microbiology, chemistry, and quality assurance.

Christine has always been connected to nature and understands some of the traditional uses of medicinal plants that her elders, first nation people, used for centuries for their nutritional and healing benefits.

After 12 years of working in the corporate world, where she was run down and taking paracetamol for head and neck aches from sedentary work, sitting at a computer all day, Christine was advised to try using Geranium pure essential oil to help her relax at the end of the day and use lavender for headaches. It helped, and her interest grew into how essential work. At the time TAFE Katoomba started the first Certificate IV of Aromatherapy course, this was one of the best decisions Christine made, it opened her eyes to the holistic approach to health and well-being. Christine experimented with blends, one in particular, to help with her hay fever and frequent susceptibility to colds. This blend is called Gesundheit, meaning “health” in German and it is something people would say when someone sneezed, like, “Bless You!”. The gesundheit blend eased the hay fever and helped decrease the occurrence of catching colds. In fact, when she moved to Queensland and changed her address at Medicare, the staff member asked if she had been out of the country as there had been no use of the Medicare card in 4 years. Christine informed the Medicare lady, that must be because the Natural therapies, including massages, helps keep her healthy.

For over 20 years now, Christine is an advocate for taking a holistic approach to healing and strive to assist her patient’s/customers achieve wellness through the safe use of essential oils, aromatherapy practices and nutritional advice, to improve psychological, physical and spiritual health and wellbeing.

Scent from Nature skin care and essential oil blends are prepared and created with not only passion and experience of their healing properties but skilful blending with modern aromatherapy principles and qualifications, while using what nature has sent for us to use naturally.
