We are a family with a small business
Carla Teixeira - Falls
Carla came to Ireland as a missionary amongst portuguese speakers. With a degree in hospital managment but she always dreamed of a job working full time around crafts and hobbies.
As someone trained in aromatherapy she enjoys blending essential oils and beautiful ingredients to make use of all their therapeutic properties.
Having made her name as a soap artist and garnering much attention in Ireland, America and Singapore, Carla wante to change tac a little towards something more closely aligned to her core values. With this in mind sought out to focus on organic skin care and working with nature.
That newfound interest has provided opportunites for Carla to develop private label fragrances and offer consultancy to a number of business'.
When Carla isn't making soaps she happily invests time building lego, scrapbooking, crocheting and knitting but we wouldl warn you not to play a board game with her!
Garreth has a background in church ministry, charity work and social enterprise. He helped develop every aspect of ScENT and has even been known to host a hen party whilst Carla was on maternity leave!
Garreth invests his time with the family as the main carer but don't let that fool you because he is also studying to become a medical herbalist.
He enjoys endeavouring to become self-sufficient and uncover long-lost wisdom; whether it be foraging and food conservation, baking delicious bread, keeping the family vegetable patch or looking after our ducks. His current interest in aquaponics, sewing and spinning are just beginning to bear fruit.
As he qualifies in Herbal Medicine he will begin to tailor make products suitable for all skin types as medicine rather than cosmetics.
