Hilling Essentials evolved through my fascination with nature and holistic healing. I am the founder and CEO, Arlene Hill Smith. I am a life learner, and have been experimenting in making skincare for my own personal use for more than a decade.
After experiencing a layoff from my position in corporate payroll during the challenging times of COVID, I found myself with a newfound opportunity to pursue something I truly loved. This unexpected change allowed me to reflect on my passions and redirect my focus towards creating a business that aligned with my interests and skills. I threw myself wholeheartedly into this passion of mine to include: research & development; enrolling in online courses for holistic skincare; herbs, flowers and aromatherapy.
I began experimenting with different formulations and ingredients to craft skincare products, that are both nourishing and effective. As I witnessed the positive transformation in the skin and overall well-being of my loved ones who used these products, I knew I had discovered something special.
