About Allana

Allana was born in Montreal where she grew up, married and started her family. Lured by the call of the wild she moved to British Columbia where she and her children lived near a small northern town and homesteaded for several years.  Always a lover of and believer in natural products, she raised her family on natural food and health products.  Returning to Montreal and city life she continued her retail management career with Hallmark in 1984, then moved on to larger spheres of responsibility retiring as Canadian training manager of a large multi-faceted retail operation. Over 50 years of management experience has taught her that the best way to manage and train people is to find their strengths and assign them positions that will inspire them to share those strengths and ensure their personal growth.

In 1996, after completing 2 years of study in clinical aromatherapy Allana and her daughter Lyza launched Casaroma Wellness intending to create and sell a natural product line that would combine family values with a solid of knowledge of aromatherapy and excellence in raw materials. 

The thread that runs through Allana’s life is a strong desire to help others discover their own path to health and self-actualization,

Allana still works full-time in Casaroma, living in the moment and loving the opportunities each day provides.

About Laurena

My name is Laurena Downie although many people will call me Lyzalee or just Lee. I am the Co-Founder of Casaroma Wellness. I live in rural Nova Scotia but I was born in Quebec, spent my teenage years in Northern, B.C. and have spent my adult years in Nova Scotia. I have loved each place I have lived and have found special something in the memories of those places. I have 2 biological children and 1 stepson all of which are adults now and starting their own families. One lives in Western Canada and the others in Nova Scotia. I live with my husband and 2 dogs on a small piece of property where we garden, raise chickens and walk our woods, I absolutely love nature and animals. This is my piece of paradise.

Allana and I started this business together from day 1. We have been in this business for over 25 years, we are a mother and daughter team and before opening Casaroma we had worked together for many, many years in the retail industry. We opened up this business with a vision of being able to make a difference in peoples lives. Our business is based on getting back to health through aromatherapy, nutrition and complementary health services and machines. We have created over 300 different products to sell using Essential oils and naturally based products. We make all of our own recipes. We are physically based in Nova Scotia with our main stores being in Hantsport (Casaroma Stress Reduction Centre) which is towards the valley and Dartmouth (Casaroma Wellness Centre) which is a metro location. My brother also has a clinic in Gibsons B.C. We are still going strong and now my daughter is starting to join us. That makes us three generations strong.

Before Casaroma I was an area supervisor for a national gift and service chain. I ran 25 stores in the Atlantic provinces. I was gifted with the label of “the youngest area supervisor on the team with the best percentage increases per area in Canada” . I ended up leaving that company to get married and raise a family. When my youngest was a few months old we decided it was time to open our own business, but we wanted something that we could also include my children with so we could be with them as much as possible. We literally raised my children and Casaroma at the same time. During that time I also received my certification in Aromatherapy, Reiki and Reflexology and I have earned my diploma in Nutrition.

At Casaroma, we do retail sales, teach classes and do services like biofeedback, light therapy, emf balancing, Reiki, consultations in aromatherapy, nutrition, intentional living and mental health support as well as a few other stress reduction services.

We have had to totally change our direction in our business over the last 2 years because of the pandemic. Everyone turned to the online purchases which meant we needed to learn how to do that as well. We are increasing our skills to meet and join in with the online market which has kept me in numerous courses and webinars for the last 18 months. I am currently heading up our team that is focusing on our online presence with a new website design, great information and simple online ordering procedures.

When I am not doing that I see people one on one for many different modalities including. Consultations with Aromatherapy and Orthomolecular Health, Reiki, Biofeedback, Aroma Beauty Sessions and Aromassage.

Allana and I also teach in person and online courses about aromatherapy and conscious living. We also love doing public talks about many subjects including Aromatherapy, Nutrition, Healthy living, Living with conscientiousness, empowering your life, Relationships & Stress Management.

For me this is an incredible life, I love to be able to communicate. I love to teach. I love to be able to share the experience of a beautiful life and teach you how to appreciate what your own beautiful life is as well. One person’s comment from a past talk summed it up well- “Lee is empowering and funny, she can get you to think of things from a new and energized perspective”.

Well…. That’s me in a nutshell! 🙂
