Christmas In Queenstown, Soul Scents Booth

This holiday season, Soul Shall Overcome unveiled Soul Scents, our newly created Wellness Mists at the Christmas In Queenstown event. Held at the Church of The Good Shepherd (COGS), the Christmas event was open to public and allowed us to interact with youths and adults of various ages and religions. 

Under the guidance of a seasoned perfumer, our enthusiastic youths embarked on a journey of discovery, blending essential oils and fragrances to create four unique scents: Dolce Far Niente, 160 Bpm Ibiza, Passionfruit Paradise, and Sandlewood Express. Carefully formulated to elevate specific moods, our wellness mists were a product of teamwork, learning, and the shared joy of creation.

This initiative not only marked a significant milestone for Soul Shall Overcome by introducing a wellness product line aimed at enhancing personal care and ambiance but also served as an empowering and fun activity that engaged our youth community. Moreover, it paved the way for generating sustainable cash flow for our company through sales, demonstrating the power of combining social engagement with entrepreneurial innovation.

Most notably, we got to speak to Mr Eric Chua, a Member of Parliment (MP) of the Queenstown Community. As a strong advocate of youth initiatives himself, Mr Chua commended our effeorts and even bought a box of Soul Scents as a Christmas gift!
