Aromatherapy Skin Care
Aromatherapy-Based Skin Care
Essential oils are the active ingredients in our plant-based formulations and are the foundation of our skin care line. For decades we have been formulating with the purest, therapeutic-grade essential oils from trusted sources around the world. Essential Oils scent, preserve and color our products and work in harmony with the skin, supporting and enhancing its natural function.
Therapeutically, the minute molecular structure of essential oils allows them to easily penetrate the skin, delivering nutrients as deep as the dermal layer, providing nourishment and protection. Our formulations employ a natural preservation system emulating principles of ancient Egyptian formulating–plants with strong anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties were used in their cosmetics as well as sacred embalming practices. Many essential oils have known anti-inflammatory properties as well, and upon inhalation can be beneficial to our respiratory and circulatory systems.
“Smell is a potent wizard that transports us across thousands of miles and all the years we have lived.”
~ Helen Keller
Holistically, essential oils can work to heal and calm the mind and body. When inhaled, essential oils pass through our olfactory system (sense of smell) to receptors linked to our emotional brain, stimulating vital energies and a sense of well-being. Our sense of smell is rooted in our primal ancestry and our connection to it is powerful. We invite you to revel in the scent of our spa-quality formulations while promoting the health and radiance of your skin.
Relax, breathe deeply and enjoy!
The skin is the largest organ of our body. It is our first line of defense in protecting us from harmful bacteria and microbes and it assists in eliminating toxins in the form of perspiration. Man-made chemicals and potential toxins in many cases are present in the air we breathe, the water drink, and in the many products we use and consume as a part of our daily routine. We can help protect this vital organ by incorporating a natural, skin care regimen into our daily routine. Our philosophy is, what goes onto the skin should be safe enough to consume. As you read our labels you will find only simple and clean, natural ingredients.
Twice-Daily, 3-Step Regimen
Following a simple regimen and making it a part of your daily routine will keep skin fresh, smooth and glowing and help remove resistant dead skin cells and pore debris. For optimum skin condition and functioning, a twice-daily, 3-step regimen is recommended.
Step 1: Cleanse — Use of a mild, vegetable glycerin-retained soap will help remove debris and waste, stimulate circulation and encourage exfoliation of dead skin cells.
Step 2: Tone — Spritzing with a slightly acidic pH toner after cleansing helps to rebalance the skin’s protective acid mantle, tighten pores and provide hydration for the skin. With a natural pH of 5.5, the acid mantle on the skin’s surface creates an unfriendly environment which helps prevent growth of unwanted bacteria and potential infections (pimples, zits).
Step 3: Moisturize — A pump of skin serum, a dab of cream or a layering of both, after toning, will provide an effective moisture barrier to protect and keep skin hydrated.
In addition to a daily 3-step regimen, incorporating a facial mask treatment 1 to 2 times weekly, can provide more intense exfoliation and rejuvenate and revitalize skin tissue. This 10-15 minute treatment will help to remove dead skin cells, remove pore debris, draw out impurities, tighten pores and plump the skin to reveal a smooth, supple, soft and radiant complexion.
To maximum the benefits of masking, we recommend two masks for this weekly maintenance. First, our Hawaiian Fruit Enzyme Exfoliating Mask and second a debris-drawing clay mask, such as the Sea Plant Rejuvenating Mask, Moisturizing Macadamia Mask, and Cool Blue Chamomile Mask. The enzyme exfoliating mask will help loosen pore debris and literally digest dead skin cells, paving the way for the clay mask treatment. Applying the clay mask second will assist in removing the digested pore debris, drawing out impurities, tightening the pores, and stimulating blood circulation to the surface.
Remember–you can multi-task…while you mask!
