AQUA FREE SKINCARE AND SCENTS EXPERTLY BLENDED FROM THE HEART AND SOIL
I am Amanda Hitchcock, the founder of The Aromatherapy Lab. I am a qualified Massage Therapist, trained in Sports Level 4, Holistic, Hot Stones & Aromatherapy. I studied at Brighton Holistics College and am a registered with the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT.org).
As a massage therapist, you get to see and touch a lot of skin. I’ve seen a lot of skin conditions with the most common being Acne/scaring, Eczema, and Psoriasis. All of which respond amazingly to Aromatherapy treatment. Most pharmaceutical treatments for skin conditions are harsh and water based, meaning they contain harmful preservatives not to mention the chemicals. Often the skin will produce a secondary reaction to the treatment.
People are becoming more aware of what they put on their skin. The harmful ingredients that continue to be used in the beauty industry is not only shocking but entirely unnecessary. As a mother of 2 young girls, it is important for me to be able to educate them so they could make smart choices in skincare.
Essential oils and plants contain the best nutrients for our skin as well having a therapeutic effect on the mind, body and soul. Their powerful effects have been known for centuries but as with all things natural, they get overtaken by the big corporations with money and profit at the forefront of their business.
The same goes for candles. I have been aware for some time now the harmful effects of paraffin-based candles and the synthetic scents often used. Many Soya based candles claiming to be natural still contain synthetic scents which are petrochemicals and harmful to humans. Aromatherapy Candles are not only 100% natural, but also have a therapeutic effect. There is no comparison in my opinion.
My bath bombs have been created to provide a nourishing all over skin treatment. They are organic and specifically blended for different purposes. The lavender and peppermint will guarantee a good night’s sleep. The Chamomile and Grapefruit is for soothing and treating skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Helichrysum and Geranium for stress and anxiety. A bath is the prefect way to provide much needed selfcare. Something that we all seem to neglect with today’s extremely busy lifestyles. Me included.
Creating essential oil blends has become a real passion for me. From the selection of the oils, to the blending and the final creation of the product. Sourcing the best products and packaging with the environment at the forefront of all decisions. I hope you enjoy my products as much as I love making them.
