We practice aromatherapy in our daily lives as we believe that the essential oils are effective in supporting our well-being. We keep on developing our skin care formulas due to the ongoing experience and your feedback. There is always a place for improvement when our purpose is to bring value to your everyday lives.
Some new tendencies came along the environmental issues we are facing right now. We have to make the right choices for our skincare and think about the nature too. One of those tendencies is the skin fasting and how to encourage our skin to take care of its moisture and oil content to be able to function in the most effective way.
There is too much pressure with too many products to maintain the look that is accepted as beautiful. We believe that nothing can be more beautiful than the naturally glowing skin. To achieve that we need to activate our skin’s natural protecting, renewing and healing processes. With too many products the skin becomes unable to protect itself. We need to respect the ability of our body to take care of itself and we choose to stay away from harmful substances.
Don’t irritate the skin with too many products, minimum is the best!
Skin is our body’s biggest organ; it is the first and most important frontier of our body’s protection. At the same time our skin plays a vital role in how we look.
We look good when we enjoy living. There's nothing more ageing than misery: it impedes our ability to feel content with whom and what we are. We want to experience the wonders of life and wonders of nature.
An enchanting smile of having lived a life appears magically youthful and beautiful.
"Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty." Coco Chanel
We can look good regardless of the age. Beauty has to do with the balance of physical and mental, nutrition and hydration, natural and art.
Human body consists of trillions of cells working intricately to maintain the organism’s every function. We need to support our cells - help the nature, not trying to change it.
Skincare is the support we give to our hard working skin cells.
Aromatherapy is a perfect tool for maintaining a healthy environment for our body and mind. When we exclude harmful substances from our daily environment, we give our body a helpful hand. Nature’s own potent aroma essences are capable to aid our body to stay healthy, our mind – happy, and the skin – radiant. A simple daily routine of grooming is the step to follow to encourage the skin cells doing their best.
What is important to know about the skin
The ultimate skin function is protection: it wraps our body and provides physical boundary, it helps with temperature regulation and provision of sensory information. Skin is an organ of elimination of wastes and it is a part of integumentary system (skin, hair, nails and oil glands).
Skin consists of three layers; they are epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. It protects the body from bacteria (it contains secretions that can kill bacteria), also from chemicals and the temperature outside. It contains pigment melanin which provides a chemical defence against ultraviolet.
The stratum corneum is the outermost layer of the skin. It is composed of the remains of dead cells. They are the first line of protection. Skin is constantly dying off and replenishing itself. Some skin cells produce collagen and elastin to make skin stretch, recoil and resist tearing. Collagen is protein which gives us form and shape.
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, sticky, sugary substance that occurs naturally in the human body, where its job is to keep cells well hydrated. It is responsible for a smooth skin.
It’s crucial not to damage the lipid coat, not to expose our skin to the sun (UV damage), pollution (and ageing) unprotected. It is vital to choose a proper cleansing product, to support and activate the defending properties of our skin keeping its protective layer intact.
Our skin is a place to apply essential oils.
Knowing about skin functions will help us understand why skincare is vital. Skin care is an important part of aromatherapy too. By using plant oils it is possible to provide a very wide range of treatments for every type of skin and skin disorders.
A daily facial treatment usually consists of gentle cleansing followed by an application of a toning and replenishing moisturiser. Aromatherapy facial treatment includes massage. It is during the massage that the essential oils will have the opportunity to penetrate the dead, outer layer of the skin and work on the living layers beneath to help the skin stand against the environment and time.
Aromatherapy treatments can be applied with much benefit to the skin of the entire body. The process of being pampered is wonderfully relaxing and can be seen as a valuable therapy in its own right.
AromaSense offers a variety of pure botanical body oils to pamper and rejuvenate the skin and mind.
Any skin type needs protection to heal and replenish. It is about cleansing (to get rid of the dead skin cells and daily grime), toning and protecting the skin and we do not need many products for that.
Skin is reacting to influences that are easily isolated or are within our control. The influencers are
Unprotected/prolonged sun exposure
Here are some frequent wrong doers found in all types of traditional skin-care products:
Abrasive scrubbing agents
Harsh/drying cleansing agents
Irritants (organic & synthetic)
Any skin can change due to hormonal cycle, season, stress levels, etc.
The skin types are
Combination and/or Sensitive (blemish prone)
Dry and/or dehydrated (eczema and rosacea prone)
The natural skin oil or sebum protects the skin from cold and heat, wind and other elements. When the glands do not produce enough of the sebum the surface of the skin will appear dry.
Aromatherapy oils do gently stimulate the sebaceous glands to function more efficiently. Oils having a balancing effect on sebum production include geranium, palmarosa, and sandalwood.
A gentle massage will increase the circulation and improve the condition of the skin.
Dehydrated skin lacks moisture as well as dry skin lacks natural oils. Though a shortage of oils may contribute to dehydration, since the surface layer of sebum helps to conserve whatever moisture is present in the skin. Gentle oils to soothe the surface of the skin are chamomile, neroli and rose.
It is in our hands to improve our skin’s condition simply by choosing 100% natural skincare products for cleansing, toning and protecting the skin.
Excessive oiliness of the skin is caused by too much sebum being produced in sebaceous glands just under the surface of the skin. It gives the skin a greasy appearance and it is often associated with tendency to acne.
Sebum production is linked to the activity of the whole endocrine system. Essential oils can help reduce the amount of produced sebum, and inhibit the bacteria causing acne. Several oils are effective: cedar wood, cypress, geranium, grapefruit and sandalwood. Some people are puzzled by the idea of using oils to treat an oily skin, but actually essential oils are non-greasy by nature, and as for fatty carrier oil an excess of it could be carefully wiped off after a treatment.
Essential oils have a molecular structure which is relatively small and simple, and they pass through the skin easily. They are absorbed by the skin as they dissolve easily in the skin’s sebum.
All essential oils have a grounding (low), medium or uplifting (high) note. Citruses like lemon, lime, and grapefruit are invigorating and found to relieve depression. Cedarwood, frankincense and vetivert are grounding and calming. Rose and ylang-ylang are heady floral middle notes helping with depression. Each essential oil carries benefits, and when combined with others, synergises to bring overall balance and wellness.
Essential oils create a harmony of mind. On the other hand, using essential oils for a regular massage may assist the whole body to detox.

Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant for therapeutic purposes.
The inhaled aroma from the essential oils is proved to stimulate the brain function, as well as promote cognitive and psychological well-being. Essential oils can easily be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.
Oils, both base and essential, are getting more attention right now. The reason is not just lovely aroma of the essential oils and lovely silky texture of the base oils but their healing properties for the skin.
Oils contain antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the body against the increased risk for health. Pollution adds up to the development of skin diseases. It is important to cleanse the skin properly – to stimulate its natural repair process.
