Episode #29: Jean-Pierre LeBlanc from Saje Wellness on Essential Oils 101

August 2, 2017

I think its fair to say that if there’s any company out there right now that I’m completely obsessed with it would be Saje Wellness. Not only do I love all of their products (and my collection is embarrassingly large!), but I also am in awe of the company culture they have built and the authenticity they retain in all that they do.

Getting a chance to speak with one of their founders, Jean-Pierre LeBlanc was truly a dream come true.

On episode #29 of That's So Maven, we're chatting with Jean-Pierre LeBlanc from Saje Wellness all about essential oils and how to add them to your life.

As a Canadian company, I definitely feel a degree of kinship with Saje and as they expand across North America, I really wanted to pick Jean-Pierre’s brain on essential oils, why he’s choosing to expand the company and how they’re maintaining a culture of wellness with such dramatic growth.

For some background, Saje started 25 years ago in Vancouver, Canada as an essential oils company and now has expanded across Canada and the US to include essential oils, blends, body care products and even tea! Their growth is incredible, but what I love most about this company is that they’re trying to make wellness easier and more accessible. We don’t all have time to blend our own essential oils or take a lavender bath every night. Having products like the Pocket Farmacy that can help ease your stress or a hand cream that helps with pain can make a huge difference in our busy lives.

Here are some of the topics we chatted about:

  • Jean-Pierre’s journey and why he decided to launch Saje Wellness with his wife, Kate
  • The company culture and why its important to him to have a good team
  • His work-life balance and working with his family
  • What are essential oils and how can they benefit our health
  • How to know which essential oils are right for you
  • Ailments and illnesses that could benefit from essential oils
  • What’s next for Saje

    Listened to this podcast this morning, yes, late to the game, but was so intrigued that I looked to see if they had any stores near me and of course they did, across the street from my job….so you know what I did during my lunch break. Amazing store and incredible employees! Thank you for introducing Saje to me.

    Aromatherapy is always good for the mind and body. It helps to relieve tension and take the stress out after coming home from a productive workday. I might share his podcast on the website momentarily as entrepreneurial inspiration to aspiring entrepreneurs seeking inspiration to take the leap of faith now into starting their own businesses. 🙂

    Thanks for this Davida! 🙂
