So, where did Gentle Habits (or as you may know us, This is Incense) come from? And why?
Well, the truth is being a full-time/working mum with two boys, I was struggling to disconnect from work when walking in the door. Finding it hard to switch off, slow down and be present with my family - even when that’s all I wanted to do.
This was back in 2020 when I began burning incense as a daily reminder - my ritual - to unwind and slow down. I was looking for ways to escape from the hustle and bustle, just for a moment. Incense became the answer to truly enjoying the in-between moments. This led my husband and I to dreaming up This Is Incense... it wasn't long before this dream became a reality!
Since then, we have had an incredible journey with This is Incense, and if you've been here from the beginning we cannot thank you enough for supporting us on this rollercoaster. This journey that has been nothing short of life-changing; physically moving my family from VIC to NSW, professionally by resigning from my full-time job, as well as emotionally and spiritually.
I’ve re-discovered myself and an energy for life that has has led me to today; introducing Gentle Habits® to you.
