OUR FOUNDER – TINA ROCCA
Tina Rocca has always lived a natural lifestyle. She has been committed to the benefits of exercise – plus eating healthy and other pro-active choices – for over 30 years.
Her interest in healthy living began with her involvement in the fitness industry as a teenager and continued at California State University Northridge where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology. While taking classes towards her Master’s Degree in Sports Medicine, she had the privilege of working as a private fitness trainer for high profile entertainment industry/celebrity clients including Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, and Sugar Ray Leonard.
Over 18 years ago, she became fascinated by the study of aromatherapy and focused on special blends of essential oils that she distributed to estheticians to diffuse throughout in their spas. As popularity for these plant oils grew, she was asked to create blends for candles and body care products. In 1995, Tina officially launched Aroma Naturals Candles, and within 10 years, Aroma Naturals became the largest, handcrafted manufacturer of pure aromatherapy candles and spurred interest from Yankee Candle who later bought the company.
Tina’s life work is focused on providing guidance for healthy living by helping others to make mindful choices about what they put on their skin which is really as important as what they eat. She is passionate about wellness and dedicated to providing you with the most exceptional, healthy products through PURE PLANT SPA.
