Rummaging through her Grandmother’s (Mimi) jewelry drawers at a young age was how it all began for Athena Masotti - Founder and visionary behind the Diffuse Casually brand. It became a regular occurrence during each visit to find Athena with Mimi's bracelets running all the way up to her elbows. Athena's Mimi loved everything that sparkled and her infinite zest for life led her to believe in something that she carried throughout her entire life; Very simply, anytime is a good time to wear jewelry! As the years passed, Athena became just like her Mimi. Jewelry became an innate part of who she is as a person. Each piece of jewelry designed and crafted is a reflection of Athena's creative style and love for personal expression and individuality.
With her combined interest in healthy living and essential oils, Athena has taken a unique and elegant approach in designing her jewelry to ensure versatility and style. Whether you are spending the day at the office or around the house, these pieces offer diffusion on the go. As a result of the very nature of these essential oil accessories, the possibilities are truly endless in regards to the benefits everyone can reap from these marvelous creations.
Athena Masotti, Founder
Athena Masotti is a born and raised Canadian entrepreneur. Throughout the many years of her childhood and into her university career at McMaster, she used jewelry making as an outlet during her down time. Coming from a family of three boys, she figured keeping her interests on the artistic side would allow for some peace and quiet, as her rambunctious brothers wrestled one another.
As hobbies often do, it quickly evolved into something beyond that. Her keen eye for originality and beauty combined with her love for healthy living has now become the passion project that we see today. Athena is always trying to push the envelope, trying to think of beautiful and exciting ways to move her craft forward.
