What happens when you support a woman in business? She serves her community. She provides for her family. She stands with others to help fulfill the needs of those around her. She becomes a mentor. AND, she’s equipped to build a sustainable business to create her own table and takes a seat at the helm to serve and sustain.
Hello, my name is Spirit Corley, founder, and creator of Gem Scents Aromatics - a natural line of aromatic body oil products for hair and body. An artisan line of aromatics that’s the perfect perfume alternative made with powerful intention.
What began as a health challenge that compromised my immune system manifested into a vision to create products and scents with a story. You can read more about my startup story from a recent article Voyage Denver here's the link: http://voyagedenver.com/interview/meet-spirit-corley-gem-scents-aromatics-se-aurora/
Being interviewed for the above article brought about more clarity regarding my startup journey. It takes tenacity even when fear and doubt try to creep in. It takes grit, and I've got it!
In the near future, my vision consists of creating a shared "brick and mortar" Body Oil Bar space that encompasses complementary brands which serve a niche market in my community and doubles as a space for retail shopping, wellness, and self-care, "girlfriend" time, and special events. In addition to that, I'm an advocate for various organizations that I collaborate with as a social enterprise and would further the work and continue to give back through my brand by mentoring, facilitating, and volunteering.
