Egyptian Rose Hydrating Mist

The Ancient Egyptians valued health and beauty and created all sorts of concoctions in response to the dry sandy winds and hot sun. Elixers, ungents, oils and salves were brewed, blended, extracted and conjured up by royalty and slave alike.

Now Maia Skin Care has drawn inspiration from the Ancient Egyptians to produce a truly magical hydrating mist and toner.

Egyptian Rose Hydrating Mist captures the essence of opulent trailing roses, sweet fresh geraniums with a hint of warm seductive vanilla. It is created by harmoniously blending organic rose petal and geranium waters, vegetable glycerin and pure plant extracts of hibiscus, oats and frankincense to tone, soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin whilst instantly calming the mind.

The Egyptian Rose Hydrating Mist is multi-functional and suits all skin types and skin conditions. It is so useful you will want one for your desk, in your drawer, make-up bag, locker and everywhere you go!

Just a few amazing benefits: hydrating, balancing, toning, helps refine pores, helps other products work better, calms irritated skin, soothes sunburn, can be used as a moisturiser for oily skin, treat razor burn and more.

You can get the Egyptian Rose Hydrating Mist 100mls now for the introductory price of £13.57. It is packaged in a beautiful dark glass bottle, so stylish and elegant! This special offer is available until the end of June 2009 and the usual price will be £16.95.

Fresholi Review:

This is a most indulgent product. A must-have for hot days to refresh and revive both the skin and the soul. I have been using this gorgeous spray practically constantly. I have used it as a toning spritzt right after cleansing as it rehydrates and the moisturisers seals it in. I have also been using it throughout the day, over make up, as it really cools and refreshes.

The aroma is exotic and luscious and it really brings comfort to the skin. Just lovely. Fantastic to use when you have a headache (on the face and the back of the neck) as it seems to bring some very welcome relief.

Beautifully packaged, really classy and stylish and I have really enjoyed showing off to just about everyone who happens to be in spraying distance - they don't complain, in fact it most often gets grabbed from my hands so they can get a closer look. It is so clearly labelled, beautifully presented and a generous volume (should keep me going for a little while yet). I for one can't wait to see what else comes out of the the Maia Skin Care lab because it just keeps getting better and better and better. This new addition is a must have for the summer!!

Launching Fresholistics!!

By Helen Williams MICHT MIFHB Cert. ED

After much planning, I am so very pleased to finally launch Fresholistics, which brings you a growing range of synergistically blended essential oils for use in finished products and therapeutic applications. These are not blended in a factory, nor are they standard blends. Instead, these blends are my own creations based on my years of experience as a practising beauty & complementary therapist and lecturer. Fresholistics offers a truly therapeutic approach to finished products.

Fresholistics Therapeutic Blends:

· Individually created by a qualified & experienced therapist
· Contain whole/complete, unadulterated, quality essential oils and nothing else
· No isolates, synthetics or preservatives
· Essential oils are selected for their therapeutic properties
· Adds label appeal to your finished products and can be further enhanced by including words to the effect of “blend created/developed by a qualified aromatherapist”
· Can be used in salon treatments
· Can be added to finished products such as soaps, creams, oils, bath & body products.

Complementary therapy is based on the ethos that the “whole” is central to all therapeutic applications. For this reason, no isolates or synthetics are used – only the complete, unadulterated oil is ever considered for inclusion in the blends.

Oils are chosen, first & foremost, for their therapeutic properties and are then blended to create a powerful synergy. I will also work closely with crafters and formulators in the creation of their own custom blends and product development. See Custom Blend/Development…

What you are buying when you purchase a Fresholistics Synergistic Blend…

As a responsible therapist who holds dear the values of my profession, I feel it important that all customers are provided with more than just a blend of oils. Therefore, I feel it necessary to deliver a service that goes that bit further to ensure customers know as much as possible about the therapeutic compound they have purchased. So when a customer purchases an oil blend or I work with them in developing a blend, I provide the following:

· 100% Quality, carefully sourced, unadulterated, pure essential oil synergistic blends
· Allergen declarations & MSDS
· A data sheet that provides simple but detailed and useful information about each blend
· For ease of labelling, the key therapeutic properties, cautions & warnings

Fresholistics Custom Blending/Aromatherapy Product Development:

· Blended to meet individual product requirements
· Have your oils pre-blended to your own specification (to save you both time and the need to purchase individual oils)

I am very happy to create blends to meet individual needs. If you would like to have a blend created to meet your specific product aims or have a blend made to your own specifications, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
