Our Founder

Hey! So glad you are here!

I am Melissa Van Den Assem, the founder of Shiloh Wellness.

From 2020-2023 I studied with Formula Botanica and have graduated from a number of their courses.

  • Diploma in Beauty Business Brand Management (2021) - gave me a huge, helpful boost to be able to rebrand in July of 2021
  • Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation (April 2022) - gained valuable skills in order to formulate my own safe, stable, and effective products
  • Certificate in Natural Cosmetic Preservation (April 2023)
  • Certificate in Cosmetic Stability Testing (May 2023)
  • Certificate in Organic Anti-Aging Skincare (June 2023)

In 2019 I completed my exams from the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists. Being an aromatherapist gives me a wealth of knowledge on essential oils and how to use them safely and effectively in my products.

In my spare time you can find me tending to my gardens, reading a good book, playing piano, travelling, singing with Oxford Collegium Singers as a second soprano, or spending time with my three adorable nieces.
