Denise Sutherland is the owner and creator of Lotus Natural Living.
Denise was first inspired in 2002 to create all natural products when she became a certified Aromatherapist. While doing a year and a half of research about ingredients and the benefits of essential oils, she discovered an abundance of information that was very alarming to her. Many products that we use on our skin are toxic. Our skin is our largest organ and what we put on it is absorbed into our blood stream. Many of these ingredients are carcinogenic; some are even used to clean the grease off of garage floors. These chemicals are also used in cleaning products and home products.
Denise’s son was born with a cleft lip and palate and one possible cause of this condition is environmental factors. After doing her research and understanding how harmful chemicals can be, Denise made it her mission to create products that are not harmful to our bodies or our children. That is how Lotus Natural Living products were born.
Denise also shares her education regarding essential oils in one on one sessions and in group settings. She is passionate about educating people about the effectiveness and safety of essential oils.
Denise lives in Barrie, Ontario. She enjoys doing yoga, running, reading and being in nature.
