I have always had a personal passion for creating fun and beautiful things. Time and experience have given me the confidence to put that passion into something meaningful that I am proud to share.
As a Beauty Therapist, owning and managing beauty spas and salons around the world I have been fortunate to have worked with many of the leading International cosmetic ranges over the past 30 years. I was always saddened by the lack of natural products - not only out of respect for mother nature but because nature provides the best healing ingredients for our skin.
In my heart I have always wanted to create a pure natural skin care range, that was free of toxins and chemicals, unlike many of the high street brands. I also wanted to use fresh ingredients that contain the most potency and allowing my skin to benefits from what nature can provide.
So with all my knowledge of skincare, I went back to the basics (in my kitchen!) and started blending all sorts of natural ingredients to use on myself. It felt so good knowing exactly what was in the products I had made. Before long friends and family became interested and I now have a full natural skincare range, which I'm delighted to say was quickly in demand.
the STORY so far
the ART OF BLENDing
I take my time with every batch that I prepare. Humming along to my favourite songs. Creating a space that is peaceful, I practice my intentions and my intention is to blend each batch of skincare so that it retains at its optimum potency and goodness until it reaches you.
I use good quality organic and natural ingredients sourced ethically from around the world that are safe to use here in Australia.
'I love the feeling I get from being close to nature, the sense of wonder, purity and simplicity of it all fills me with enthusiasm. Nothing comes close to the smell of rain drenched eucalyptus trees or the sound of a distant Bell Bird, I’m even in awe of the warble of my backyard magpie.
This feeling is something I try to capture in all the Essence & Wisdom range.
All our ingredients are natural, free of toxins and there is no animal testing.
Freshness is the key to anything natural, so all our products are made in small batches and they should be kept in a cool dark place or placed in the fridge.
Always use clean fingers or a spatula when applying.
Always read the label.
