THE STORY OF JUNETOBER SCENTS
Junetober Scents LLC was founded in Detroit MI by 24 year old, Devan Pennington, with the purpose of promoting and encouraging self care and emotional wellness.
Our founder is someone who has struggled with her mental health after loosing her grandmother in 2011 and then her mother in 2015. This is how the name, Junetober Scents, was created. Being primarily raised by her mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Devan wanted to create something that honored them with a product that has helped her mental health. June, being the month of her grandmother's birthday and the month that she passed away and October being the month her mother and great grandmother were born, is the reasoning behind the brand “Junetober.”
While battling with her emotional wellness, Devan began searching for ways to ensure she took care of her mental health. In that process, candles became a big part of her self care routine and quickly became her passion. As the sense of scent is directly connected to mood uplifting, it only made sense for her to begin her candle collection. Now a few years later, she’s decided to share a piece of her self care routine with the world, by selling scents that helped advance her mood in hopes that it will do the same for others.
