About

Ginger Aromatica grew from a long-held dream of Mary Kayitesi Blewitt OBE to create a business that reduces stress and improves people’s lives – emotionally, physically and spiritually.

For many years, Mary held a high-level, stressful professional job, whilst raising her own children. She knows how stressful modern life can be. Mary understands the importance of taking time to recharge in maintaining emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health. She firmly believes that wellness of mind, body and soul is essential for a good life and to reduce daily stress.

Since 1994, Mary has dedicated her life to survivors of the Rwandan genocide: building homes, providing education, healthcare and micro-finance support to thousands of widows and orphans. She spent many years listening to horrific testimonies. Frustrated by an inability to alleviate the stress, anxiety and depression of the survivors, Mary has pursued studies to understand more thoroughly trauma, stress, anxiety and depression and to learn complementary therapies that promote natural healing.

Mary lives and works in central London, in the UK.
