Do you ever feel like life has been a whirlwind of stress, deadlines, and never-ending to-do lists, leaving us gasping for a breath of fresh air? We feel for you. But we've got just the ticket to rescue you from the clutches of daily mayhem.

Meet Adoratherapy. A brand that takes you on a journey of healing through breath and intention using all-natural essential oil-based fragrances.

Laura McCann, the Founder and CEO of Adoratherapy, was rocking the business world, making waves, and conquering mountains. But then, life threw a curveball her way—a health crisis that made her hit the brakes and reassess everything. Stress had taken its toll, and Laura needed a lifeline. She then created the brand with the belief that Mother Earth's abundant resources offer the ability to transform the human experience.

But she didn't just stop at crafting exquisite scents. She went above and beyond. Adoratherapy's chakra oil blends and water-based aura sprays are carefully designed to lift and shift your mood at the moment, allowing you to tap into your best self.

Imagine being accompanied by a "Life Coach in A Bottle." Sounds intriguing, doesn't it? Adoratherapy's chakra oil blends and water-based aura sprays take conscious beauty to a whole new level.

Get ready to be captivated, and take one inhale at a time. It's time to meet the amazing woman behind the brand that rejuvenates your senses and reminds you to adore yourself in every single breath.

Laura McCann’s love for Beauty, Fashion, and Wellness was the foundation of Adoratherapy.

“I have worked in Wellness, Beauty, Fashion and Technology. I am a serial entrepreneur, and have founded four businesses. I started my first business when I was 28 years old. I spent most of my career in New York city since graduating from Parsons School of Design. I am a Tory Burch Fellow and was so proud to have be the winner of a Western Woman Small Business award. I have worked in the consumer products industry for over thirty years.”

Unlike other perfumes being marketed, Adoratherapy is a creative fusion of Aromatherapy and Perfumery.

“My background in design, product development and sourcing has been a useful skill in designing our brand and packaging. I use my entrepreneurial background encompassing tech, sourcing, operations marketing and sales every day in my business. In many ways, because I came from the fashion side of consumer products and not beauty or wellness I saw an opportunity to create a brand that is bringing the art of aromatherapy and traditional perfumery together.”

Formulated by Certified Aromatherapist, Adoratherapy sets itself apart from other perfumes with its clean and safe formulations.

“Our formulas were developed by a certified aromatherapist who was also trained as an energy healer. I discovered the formulas and saw their potential and wanted to find a way to move them from the wellness shelf to the beauty shelf. Since we began we have moved from oil based perfumes to water based ones, and also candles and body care. I have partnered with experts to make sure our products are safe, therapeutic and smell great. I decided early on we would manufacture in house to maintain quality and keep our blends proprietary. My background in sourcing and manufacturing has allowed me to be as close to vertical as we can be.”

Even when faced with challenges, Adoratherapy stayed true to its mission to bring Transformation.

“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. I have always been focused on my personal development and transforming into the best version of myself which requires me to elevate my consciousness. This business has required me to overcome insurmountable obstacles. I continue to invest my time, money and energy into it because I see an opportunity to teach what I have learned to more people by making aromatherapy and chakra healing and balancing easier to understand.”

From Aromatherapy to Auratherapy, the future is endless for Adoratherapy.

“When we started building the brand we had a chakra oil collection. No one understood it so we dumbed it down and changed the concept to mood boosting. When we pivoted to retail first and launched our store in Asheville North Carolina we opened an Aura photography studio. Our aura program shows guests their chakras in great detail. We finally had what we needed to get the chakra message across. We call the concept Auratherapy and we combine an aura reading with chakra balancing with our products. It has been phenomenally successful. We have developed many protocols and designed a store experience to build on that success. We hope to open more studios and stores soon.”


Adoratherapy - Chakra Aroma Perfume Number 1

Winner in Perfume


Chakra Aroma Perfume by Adoratherapy is your “Life Coach in a Bottle”.

“We submitted our Chakra Aroma Perfume Number 1 to the CertClean awards and it won in the perfume category. We chose that specific product for several reasons: Our water based formulation makes it breathable, but also safe and clean; The 1st Chakra is the root, and being grounded is key to the human experience. It's a beautiful earthy blend of patchouli, sandalwood, cedarwood, ginger and other oils that smells divine and instantly puts you back into your body; The root is all about belonging and healing our trauma to be embodied. Isn't that a good enough reason?”


With the mainstream beauty industry's strong foundation, the road to success in the clean beauty industry is no walk in the park. We asked Laura what the hardest part was during her journey to success. Her answer: access to capital.

It's a challenge that has tested Laura's resilience and determination. Balancing cash flow, financing, and fundraising can feel like a juggling act on a tightrope. But this Aries CEO doesn't back down easily. She's learned the art of patience and the value of profitability over rapid growth. It may be tough, but it only fuels her fire to keep pushing forward.

On the flip side, the best part of running a clean beauty company is a true delight for Laura. As someone deeply connected to her solar plexus, she thrives on getting things done. The satisfaction of making things happen is like music to her soul. And let's not forget her powerful intuition and a third eye that sees the world with clarity. With Adoratherapy, Laura has found her calling—a platform to tap into her strengths, unabashed. Helping people grow, heal, and transform is not just a job for her; it's a divine purpose.

As we wrap up this extraordinary journey, let's raise a metaphorical bottle of aura spray and celebrate the passion, resilience, and unwavering dedication that fuels Adoratherapy. We're in awe of Laura's tenacity and grateful for the opportunity to witness a brand that embraces the power of conscious beauty.

Together, let's continue to adore ourselves, uplift others, and make the world a more beautiful place—one breath at a time.
