Meet Raylene – “I am a single mum in my 40’s to Ariel my beautiful 2-year-old daughter who just happens to have Down syndrome. We may not be the typical family set up but I focus on our abilities as a family and what we can achieve. And we have a wonderful life.”
“The name Ariel is experienced as a feminine angelic presence with a beautiful pale pink energy. Her name means Lioness of God. Archangel Ariel is aligned with animals and the conservation of our natural world.”
“My life has been changed in such a profound way since Ariel blessed me with her presence. She is such an incredible gift and I am truly blessed with an earth angel.”
I’m grateful for my daughter and everything she is teaching me about unconditional love.
“I have my own business manufacturing bespoke scented candles and lip balms for gifting and promotional merchandise. I also produce a special candle and lip balms in honor of Ariel with a % of the proceeds going to Down syndrome charities including Down syndrome NSW and Lifestart NSW. I do this as a way to raise awareness on Down syndrome.”

“The candle has a base note of patchouli, heart note of jasmine with fruity top notes of nectarine and black current, black raspberry and black cherries. The patchouli essential oil is soothing to the nervous system and is used to relieve symptoms of depression and stress. Jasmine is a sensual, soothing, calming oil that promotes love and peace. The blend of nectarine, black current and berries gives a surprisingly sweet aroma and creates the unique character of the candle.”

“I also write a personal blog about my life with my daughter and the adventures we go on. The blog is a personal blog about me and my daughter and things that we do. It will be about being a single mum, a working mum and a mum of a little girl who has Down syndrome. Later when Ariel s old enough she may take over the blog – that is up to her. I hope she does, but in the meantime I’m doing my best to be a good mum, just like all of the other (inspirational) Mums and Dads out there. You can view it here www.arielsworld.com.au“
