Hi, I’m Jess, the owner and creator of Tori and Liz. I make aromatherapy jewelry, and my slogan is “Your Oils, Your Style.” I believe we have different styles for different days, well at I know I do! Some days I feel like dressing in a bohemian style, some days I feel preppy, and other days it’s about throwing on some Adidas track leggings and calling it a day.
I have been making Jewelry for 10 years, which started when I was a brand new mom fresh out of my service as a United States Marine. It started with nursing reminder bracelets, because I could never remember which side I left off on those first few weeks.
I have had ebbs and flows in my business, usually due to life changes. I now have four beautiful children! We are also currently stationed in Okinawa, Japan, and my husband is an active duty United States Marine.

I began using essential oils 2 years ago. Me and Lavender are best buddies. Cliche? Maybe but it is what it is. Besides it’s the Swiss Army knife of essential oils. I am also an aromatherapy student, studying at the School for Aromatic Studies. I get asked a lot of questions about essential oils, and I think it is important to give safe and reliable information.
So this is where Tori and Liz gets a fresh start. I love making jewelry, I love essential oils. Bam. Badabing badaboom. I wish I had a really deep moving story about the shop, but that’s pretty much it. But don’t mistake my simplicity for a lack of intention or big dreams. We just haven’t gotten there yet.
I know, this is a fairly short intro. I hope that you will be able to see more of who I am as I get more comfortable writing and sharing my experiences. I’m pretty out of my comfort zone here, but here’s to a start!
