Roy, left – Greg, right


In 2003 Greg met his future husband, Roy, who was also interested in learning candle and soap making. During this time, Roy also learned Reiki, fulfilling a long-time interest of his in the healing arts.

But, alas, they were not as green as they thought they were. During the first setup at a festival together their booth was across from another soap vendor, one with soaps only scented with real essential oils – lavenders and mints and eucalyptus and patchouli. They looked at their table of gardenia and fresh linen scented soaps and realized they were disappointed. Out came the essential oils books that night. By the next batch, our soaps were only scented with real essential oils – their very first batch being a lavender rosemary blend.

Their repertoire of products grew and they opened our first store that year – a tiny 375 square foot boutique packed with soaps, candles, lotions, incense, creams and scrubs. But traffic was terrible there. So, it closed in a little under a year. They began setting up monthly at the Nashville Fairgrounds Flea Market for most of 2004 and 2005.

In 2005, both took a long-distance course (Canadian) in aromatherapy and upon completion, became official certified aromatherapists.

In 2006, Roy and Greg rented a larger store inside the same building as a yoga studio. As the business grew, we incorporated in 2012 as the Aromagregory Creative inc. company. Over the years, the store has continued to grow and show our variety of interests. “We think of ourselves as much more than a natural soap and herb shop. We have grown to become a hip and funky New Age – Metaphysical store. In our shop you will find Nashville’s largest variety of essential oils, aromatherapy diffusers, over 250 teas and herbs, spiritual oils, tarot cards, books, gifts, and healing energy services such as Reiki and Reflexology.”

Aromagregory is based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Quality products and good customer service is the mainstay of the company. We’re sticklers for quality control, which shows in our fine products. Greg and Roy
