Lily's Story

Welcome to Lily Lou's Aromas, a global self-care brand founded by 10-year-old entrepreneur Lily. Lily's journey began under difficult circumstances, as she was bullied physically and emotionally at school. After a traumatic incident where she was pushed down a flight of stairs, her parents made the decision to homeschool her for her safety.

During this challenging time, Lily and her mom developed a night routine to cope with their mental health struggles. Lily's mom was also dealing with postpartum depression, and the pandemic added to their stress. One evening, while enjoying their routine, Lily noticed that the candles they were using were giving her mom headaches. In the name of science, Lily decided to take matters into her own hands and start creating her own aromas.

With her mom's support, Lily began experimenting with wax melts, and after plenty of practice, she created her first sellable products. She shared them with family and friends for feedback, and the orders started rolling in. Fast forward to today, and Lily Lou's Aromas has grown into a thriving international business, shipping thousands of packages worldwide.

Lily's achievements are a testament to her resilience and determination:

- Growing her product line to over 10 categories, including her signature Whipped Candles and Nightmare Spray
- Shipping her products worldwide, spreading joy and self-care globally
- Winning youth leadership awards for inspiring the next generation to chase their dreams
- Collaborating with brands like Match Group, Kikiz Cosmeticz, Mamas for Mamas, and Ronal McDonald House, a cause close to her heart

Lily's advocacy against bullying and her commitment to kindness have led her to speak at schools, marketing events, and even TV and podcast appearances, including Kaitlyn Bristowe's Off the Vine podcast.

Featured in publications like Epoch News, Daily Hive, and BCBusiness, Lily's story is a beacon of hope for those who have faced similar challenges. With her family's support and guidance, she's learned valuable lessons through the "University of Life" and has mentors like Tara Bosch from Smart Sweets cheering her on.

As Lily looks to the future, she's excited to continue growing her business, releasing an album, and pursuing her acting dreams, including a Disney movie role! With her upcoming author era, she's eager to share more of her learnings and inspire others to chase their dreams.

Join Lily on her journey as she continues to spread love, kindness, and self-care to every corner of the world. And remember, as Lily says, "Always be true to yourself and never give up on your dreams!"
