The Ingredients & formulations of Our Range
We use AROMA SPA products in all our therapies which have been formulated by Bronwyn Jackson, Aroma Spas director after wanting to be able to treat the body through the skin & also target the emotions. How we do this is by adding essential oils at a high % creating therapeutic products (or remedies) which can then be added to our specially formulated bases, creating your own personal prescriptive products (or client products) that can be created for specific needs for skin & body health and//or physical and emotional wellbeing. The bases include body oils, balms, salts, scrubs, cleansers, moisturisers, masks and aromasols (water dispersing blends). Our ranges also include pre-blended products such as body oils, massage candles, specific skin and body care ranges, as well as products for the home and environment, herbal teas and pure essential oil blends and concentrated blends of oils. Like previously stated our main emphasis with our products is not only the quality ingredients which is there to feed the skin, but our combination of therapeutic levels of essential oils. When essential oils are added to a base at this level we bascially have created a herbal medicine or a therapeutic remedy. This means we are treating the body on the skins surface as well as internally & hence we get amazing results on every level including the emotions as the essential oils penetrate through to every organ through the bloodstream. This is taking skincare & body products to the next level where we can provide a state of equalibrium in the body just by cleansing the skin with one of our therapeutic products.
All our ingredients that go into our products are sourced from the best location for that particular plants qualities. Most of our vegetable oils come from our pure environment in NZ but if that plant is best sourced overseas it will be. Hence our essential oils are sourced from all over the world as therapeutic benefits change depending on where it is grown. Our products contain ‘Pure’ botanical ingredients with only active ingredients to feed and nourish the skin and body. Like all our products, they include a range of wild crafted and organically grown herbal extracts that are designed to nourish and provide the healthiest ingredients for your skin. The products are all hand made in small batches to optimise nutrional value and purity. There is no compromise on quality nor any chemicals, additives, artificial ingredients, or fillers. In fact they only contain quality ‘active’ ingredients that your skin & body needs.
BASE PRODUCTS: Our base products are our bases designed so that the Aroma Synergies (Essential oil blends) can be added so to be customised for your different moods, conditions or scents. Not only do we want to have our products scented differently some days, sometimes our moods, energy levels, body conditions etc. mean we need different essential oils to get us through the day or to treat what is going on in our bodies/lifestyles etc. Each specific base product will advise how many essential oil drops you should add.
AROMA SYNERGY: These are our potent medicinal pure essential oil blends. Designed for their specific treatment of conditions, moods or scents. They can be added to our base products, used in oil burners, diffusers, massage oils etc.
AROMACEUTICAL: A vegetable based concentrated blend of pure essential oils to be used straight on the skin,
AROMASOL: A blend of concentrated essential oils designed to disperse into water & water soluble products. Essential oils are not water soluble therefore when they are added to water they float to the top. By using an aromasol over a aroma synergy, the essential oils will disperse into the water & therefore you will get an even distribution of the essential oils. These are great for use in the bath, facial steamers, compresses etc.
AROMA SERUM: A blend of essential oils with specific vegetable oils and/or herbs designed for use on the face. Each serum will give you its properties & skin conditions.
HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE PRODUCT CATEGORIES & LABELS:
Our product labels will tell you in order firstly, the product type eg. aroma synergy,
followed by the category e.g. skin & body, lifestyle or wellbeing, which could cross over. An example of this might be the ‘Breathe & Relieve’ Skin Cleanse is for the face but the category it was designed for is for wellbeing. This is firstly because with aromatherapy the emotional aspect of the oils can be used in a variety of ways & so an astmatic or someone with the flu might like to use this cleanser which will also help relieve their breathing symptoms as they cleanse. So there for if the product doesn’t have a specific category (like just specified) it may not have a category as it can be used in skincare and body products & it is a product for wellbeing. See below for more on the categories & what to use where, but please contact us if you are confused or don’t know where to start.
Lastly the synergy of the product e.g. ‘Detox the Pox’, ‘Sporty Sorts’ etc. Under the specific product we will advise how to use it, who or what conditions we recommend this for etc. but generally you will chose your products for what your main concerns are. As stated under the ‘Base Products’ sometimes it is nice to use the unscented bases as this makes it more ecomical to customise your products as you like with you adding the essential oils .
