Our founder Sam Fells first blended essential oils on her kitchen table in Spring 2013. Her son, Theo was doing his GCSEs and he was really struggling with his hay fever. The antihistamine tablets he was taking were making him feel drowsy and groggy and his itchy, stuffy eyes and nose were keeping him awake at night too.
He was tired, stressed and miserable at a time he needed to be top of his game.
Desperate to help, Sam used her 15 years of healthcare experience working at Boots to experiment with different essential oils; each known for use in traditional medicine to ease sensitivity to pollen and other irritants. She tried different oils in different quantities starting with lavender, camomile, eucalyptus, later discovering the soothing effects of myrrh, clove leaf and lemon oil. Eventually a blend of 10 left Theo feeling much more comfortable; he was able to breathe more clearly in the day and sleep better at night. He could concentrate during his revision and the oil blend helped him through all of his exams.
Friends heard the story (and asked for a bottle), and when they too said how instantly soothing the fragrance was the idea of Breaze was born.
In 2022 we launched our latest product - our dual action Barrier Balm, combining the oil with a gentle, natural balm to trap pollen whilst soothing uncomfortable stuffiness and itching at the same time.
We continue to find ways to apply the use of our unique formula to help others.
10 years on and Theo still never goes anywhere without a bottle of oil or barrier balm in his pocket!
