Both Tom and Irja have a college education in herbology, and have studied Ayurveda and Aromatherapy. In 2001, Irja invented her famous Pixie Glassworks Aromatherapy Pendant, and the concept has blossomed into a successful line of glass aromatherapy products.
Tom & Irja took the Aromatherapy Pendant to the Dragons and it was featured on CBC Dragon’s Den (Season Five, Episode 16). The overwhelming positive response after the national TV exposure enabled the Pixies to move forward with their plans to expand their business.
