interview with Laura McCann of Adoratherapy

Tell us a little bit about your company and what you give to the world through it.
Transformation is at the very heart of the ADORAtherapy mission. Founded upon the belief that Mother Earth’s abundant resources offer the ability to transform the human experience. Our aroma perfumes lift and shift your mood in the moment, allowing you to tap into your best self. When we have the presence of mind and heart to be more adoring and compassionate with ourselves, this very feeling cascades into the world and all we touch within it. As we individually transform into the best version of ourselves, we weave a new tapestry for humankind, ultimately elevating our collective consciousness.

How did your love of aromatherapy and crafting scents come to be in your life?
I grew up in Paris and my grandfather’s best friend, who was an American World War II veteran and his French wife owned a duty free perfume store. I was taken there often and always was given a bag of samples. I can’t remember not wearing perfume. As I got older I developed migraines and perfume become a big no-no. I had no alternative until I was introduced to Aromatherapy through Adora Winquist at a friend’s birthday party. A master formulator, she had developed perfume-like aromatherapy blends. I was so excited. I had no idea essential oil perfumery could go beyond perfume and not only deliver amazing scents but heal and shift my moods.

You have purchased HobaCare Jojoba for many years! We couldn’t be more thrilled to be of support of your creations. Did you try other carrier types before settling on ours?
We have always used jojoba as our core carrier. When we tried HobaCare Jojoba we loved it and have been using it since. We tried a few other brands, but we ultimately fell in love with Hobacare. Your customer service is great and we sometimes have to order last minute to fulfill a big order and always get what we need.

Why would you recommend HobaCare Jojoba to others as a base for aromatherapy?
We use water and oil as carriers. Water for sprays and oil for roll ons and droppers. We believe jojoba is the best carrier because it is not an oil and it is stable. We love the texture for our roll ons. I have many seed and nut allergies so the fact that it is non-allergenic is very important.

What are some of your favorite aspects of running your business?
I am a total packaging geek and love designing new concepts and sourcing bottles and boxes.
By the way we love your new packaging and branding!


Do you have a current favorite roll on scent from your collection?
My go to roll ons are Vitality, Motivation, Joy, and Clarity from our Chakra Boost collection. They are healing and smell amazing. I mix and match them as needed.

Have you tried using HobaCare Jojoba in your personal life? For face or body? For kitchen cutting boards? Massage? Pet care?
I have so many Adoratherapy products at home but have never used Hobacare on its own. Thanks for the inspiration!

Since HobaCare and ADORAtherapy have such clear intentions of integrity and wishes for all humans’ wellbeing through the products they use – what is something outside of our products you feel will help make the world a better place as we journey on?
I call myself a “life coach in a bottle”. I feel that my mission is to remind people to breathe and set an intention for their best life. Our aroma perfumes are blended to elicit specific mood and healing benefits. We like to say we are “Beyond perfume”.

There you have it! Just one of the amazing companies who utilize HobaCare Jojoba – in this case for the good of people’s moods and overall wellbeing! Please check out ADORAtherapy's website for more information and tell Laura we sent you!

Every one of your claims are true - the lack of staining and smell, the affinity with the skin, and my clients love that they don't get up from the table feeling like greased pigs (my words). Of course, as a massage therapist, none of that would matter if the grip and glide weren't perfect... and they are.

Sara Garvin, LMT

My clients love Jojoba; it washes out of sheets and clothing easily, and it makes my work easier. The absence of fragrance is especially nice. I highly recommend it!

Deb Hewson

I started out trying the jojoba on an older leather day planner that I have. It is in very good condition, so I didn't think I would see much of a difference. Boy, was I wrong! I didn't realize how dull it was until I used the jojoba on it.


I bought your product... and my husband thought it was just another product I had to have - now he uses it all the time and reminded me when we're running low. So we both think it's great. Thanks.

Lois Akner Fields

I love this product. My esthetician had been using it on my skin for years. Trusting her knowledge of skincare and product-lines for the last 20+years, I decided to wean myself from traditional body moisturizers in 2018, and transition to jojoba oil for my basic skin care moisturization.


After more than 20 years of practice I have used numerous products. The Jojoba Oil is superior to any and all.

Elizabeth Berks

I also feel good that by using your product I'm doing everything I can to protect the new mother and delicate new life in my care - no chemicals, preservatives, or pesticides here, thank you very much.

Sara Garvin, LMT

I continue to be impressed with your company and the high standards that it promotes. Your responsiveness to questions, shipping and customer service is top notch. Thank you for everything.

Heather Piper

The very best thing about jojoba is that is does not become rancid and aids in the integrity of essential oils.

After few days of using it, I must admit that the product has proved itself beyond my expectations! My 4 year old son was suffering from a red bottom due to frequent wetting. Since I've used the Jojoba, his skin is bright, clean, and with no signs of red. I'm very grateful to you.
