Arraby's Aromatherapy gathers premium quality ingredients from all over the world to create our unparalleled products. Completely natural, chemical free essential oil products - you can be assured of their purity and freshness.
Arraby's was started literally over the kitchen table in 1995 by Pat Scanlan. She used her knowledge of essential oils and natural ingredients to create a line of products which she then sold at trade shows, exhibitions, and in malls. The original company name was Choices. In 1997 the company was renamed Arraby's. That same year Pat moved the manufacturing from home to a proper factory facility. The business became more family oriented with daughter
Jennifer working full time and grandmother Bonnie, son's Michael and James, and daughter Andria helping out when needed. Friend Carol Watson designed the logo which has been incredibly important in establishing a recognizable brand. At trade shows customers still inspect our labels to make sure they're getting the 'right' product.
In 2003 son Michael joined the company full time. Michael is a BCIT grad in Manufacturing Engineering Technology and brought with him fifteen years of production and quality experience. Increased travel and shows attended ensued and with the increased exposure, more distributors were added. Arraby's now has distributors in five provinces and three states.
In 2005, with failing health, Pat sold the business to Michael. In 2007 she received a kidney from Michael and has recovered nicely. She has rejoined Arraby's in a much more relaxed mode doing the 'fun stuff' of new product development. Look for additions to our product line in the near future.
Our goal is to continue to grow the business by providing you competitively priced, top quality products with great customer service. We thank you for being a part of that.

Back when I first joined my mom in this business I traded some Snore-No-More to a fellow trade show vendor for this caricature of me. Look at all that hair. Those were the good 'ol days.
