The power of aromatherapy

Kindred Self is a wellness brand with the goal to help individuals find balance, connection, and inner harmony while managing the demands of daily life.

Founded in 2015 by counsellor Kyrie Kohlhagen, Kindred Self is dedicated to assisting, educating, and empowering individuals along their journey towards increased mental and emotional well-being.

Operating from her wellness studio in Port Adelaide, Kyrie offers a unique service that combines talk therapy and sound therapy. This integrated approach addresses both the emotional and somatic aspects of healing. Through talk therapy, individuals have the opportunity to explore their experiences, articulate their emotions, and gain valuable insights. The incorporation of sound therapy, specifically using Tibetan Singing Bowls, adds a sensory element to help regulate the nervous system, release stored stress and trauma from the body, and promote a deep sense of relaxation.

In order to reach and support a wider community, Kyrie has also developed a delightful range of natural aromatherapy products.

“Upon receiving my breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 30, my specialist handed me a tissue with a few drops of pure Lavender essential oil. It was my first experience with the power of essential oils in supporting me through the initial shock and subsequent emotional turmoil,” says Kyrie.

The aromatherapy products aim to help individuals connect with the simple message of slowing down, embracing their emotions, and practising self-kindness. By combining the principles of aromatherapy with mindfulness, each Kindred Self product encourages users to engage their sense of smell as a means of calming the mind and connecting with their present feelings.

“Fast forward 15 years and, having completed formal psychotherapy studies, I realised the obvious links between counselling and aromatherapy. This realisation led to the creation of the Kindred Self product range that combines the benefits of essential oils with self-care practices,” says Kyrie.

The Kindred Self product range includes portable aromatic mists and rollers, allowing individuals to carry them conveniently to work, school, or any other location away from home. Additionally, the diffuser blends offer a simple way to create a balanced and tranquil environment at home. Every Kindred Self product transforms into a trusted friend, readily available around the clock to offer support and comfort whenever needed.
