Jo Ribeiro is the founder and creator of Scented Events. Her mission is to give ladies the chance to learn about and experience the delightful healing fragrances which Aromatherapy offers, in a fun and light-hearted manner.
Her career began as a child, making and selling ‘rose perfume’ in a jar like thousands of other little girls! Jo’s real interest in Aromatherapy started from a visit to a spa in Bali on her honeymoon. Mesmerised by the exotic scents of oils burning throughout the spa, and some wonderful treatments later, Jo returned to home and decided to learn all about these amazing plant oils. She completed her training at the SEED Institute in Hampshire in 2002 and became a member of the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists.
The following 7 years were spent building up an Aromatherapy practice within Neal’s Yard Remedies in Cambridge and Leeds, furthering her knowledge.
In 2008, Jo was asked if she could organise an Aromatherapy evening for a large group of ladies at a law firm in Leeds. This was where her previous career of event organising came round in a full circle, and her two passions came together – Aromatherapy and Events. Building on the success of that evening, and others that followed, Scented Events was created.
She now works with a talented team of Aromatherapists, and enjoys delivering the highest quality events nationwide.
