Celebrity endorses AromaZodiac Candles.  Baroness Olivier Dame Joan Plowright, extols the virtues of her AromaZodiac Candle saying ‘My beautiful candle which we had burning for my birthday was much admired and enjoyed”.

“Congratulations Kathryn for bringing together your creativity and holistic aptitude to create a wonderful range of distinctive candles, and finally making your dream come true”.

Joan Plowright is one of the most distinguished actors of her generation whose career has spanned over six decades.  She has won two Golden Globe Awards and a Tony Award as well as being nominated for an Oscar, an Emmy and two BAFTA Awards.

Over the years Joan has had many honours titles awarded for her work in the theatre, film and television industry, including an OBE, CBE, and DBE (Dame of the British Empire) which is the equivalent of a Knighthood.

She possesses further titles as a result of her marriage to Sir Lawrence Olivier, considered the world’s greatest Actor of the 20th century, made her Lady Olivier and when Olivier was made a life peer she became Baroness Olivier.

Her full and official title, as the widow of a peer and in her own right a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, is: The Right Honourable The Baroness Olivier DBE, however to everyone she knows she is just ‘Joan’.

Joan also happens to be Kathryn Plowright’s aunt; they both cherish a close and enduring relationship, which resulted in Kathryn travelling the globe with her aunt during the filming of many of Joan’s most famous movies. These include 101 Dalmatians with Glen Close, Scarlet letter with Demi More and Gary Oldman, Tea with Mussolini with Maggie Smith, Judi Dench and Cher, and naturally socialising with the glitterati of Hollywood.

“Joan has been a huge positive influence my whole life, she is a second Mother to me and my best friend.  She has supported and encouraged AromaZodiac over the years it took to develop the idea, providing a listening ear to myself with while being incisive with an ever present dose of reality. Her passion and drive to produce the best possible, alongside her considered and sage advice has been a great benefit to me – and for that I am extremely thankful”.

“She really is an aficionado on complementary therapies, having experimented with many aspects of it as far back as the 1950’s when she and my Uncle Sir Lawrence,  first experienced the benefits of cutting edge natural therapies in Los Angeles. She is an advocate of vitamin and mineral supplements and herbal medicine having been a client of the Medicine Shop and Clinic since its inception. She still today at the age of 88 has regular complementary treatments and applies herself to the disciplines of yoga, meditation and mindfulness to keep her vibrant and able to continue to work.  She has just completed a television documentary for the BBC with her close friends Maggie Smith, Judi Dench and Eileen Atkins due to be screened in 2018 – which makes her in my eyes a truly remarkable woman and one who warrants my respect and my gratitude’”.

Kathryn explains:

“Joan’s birthday is on October 28th, which makes her a Scorpio. She displays all the emotional attributes of a Scorpio being passionate, tenacious and dynamic.  However, Scorpio’s are attributed with having a suspicious, introspective and intolerant aspect to their personalities. The aromatherapy essential oils I selected for the Scorpio candle are carefully selected to help restore the positive qualities of being of a Scorpio; passionate, perceptive and powerful. The candle is infused with Patchoulis, Palmerosa, Cypress, Pimento Berry, Grapefruit, Sage and Grapeseed. Whilst the therapeutic attributes of these oils in the candle help restore balance to the Scorpio, they also embue and create the most delicious fragrance to scent any chosen room in your house.  Joan favours her Scorpio candle in the drawing room where she can sit and meditate whilst inhaling the therapeutic aromas. These enter her blood stream and start working on the area’s and aspects of any physical mental or emotional imbalances she may be experiencing”.

“I was so thrilled to hear that Joan had introduced her AromaZodiac candle to her friends over her birthday weekend, and they all enjoyed and admired its divine fragrance” Nice one Joanie!
