Meet Susan!

Founder of Aromatic Traditions

Hi There, and WELCOME!

Aromatic Traditions® has a simple mission—to create elegant, natural products that nourish your innate beauty and revere the magic and mystery of our world.

Founded in 1998 by Susan Varga with the debut of our iconic “Blue Pearl” moisturizer, we are proud to be a naturally-formulating, micro-manufacturing botanical perfumery that sources only the highest quality raw and organic materials free from harsh chemicals and synthetics.

Above all, your health and beauty matter to us—as does the health of our planet. We will always promote and utilize organic agriculture, fair trade, and sustainability. We prioritize local and mindful harvesting of raw materials and wholeheartedly believe in giving back to our communities and to the beautiful Earth we call home.

Susan’s path as a botanical perfumer began when, as a small child, she endeavored to distill the essence of peony in her EasyBake oven. She now has over 25 years of perfume and herbal experience, as well as extensive experience in consulting and manufacturing. Susan is an artist whose work showcases how the interplay of fragrance and art weaves an enchanting story that echoes the beauty of our natural world and our connectedness to it all.  

We Know that...
