Back in 2000, Maryann Mihalopoulos, a seasoned attorney turned part-time entrepreneur, converted her passion for ambrosial fragrances into a sweet side business she called Xela Aroma. The brand peddles a dreamy lineup of candles and diffusers, each made and manufactured with essential oils, right here in Dallas.
