Pure essential oils

With aromatic pure essential oils, it is possible to restore balance in your body thereby benefiting the condition of your skin, scalp and hair. “Balance” can be described as less stress, greater mental and physical vitality, and a more focused, contented state of being. Pleasurable responses recorded by the brain from aromatic essential oils are transmitted to all areas of the body by the nervous system. Synthetic fragrances and colours can be responsible for a range of skin reaction and allergic conditions. As a result of increased awareness of total body and health, a growing number of people want more than just a cosmetic approach to their personal care products.

For the Australian Native Botanicals range, we have developed a number of exquisite aromatherapy blends using wild harvested and natural pure essential oils to deliver a totally harmonious and uplifting experience.
