The Rose

February 10, 2015

In  ancient  Indian  texts,  the rose  is  referred  to  as  “The Lotus of the Heart”.         

The rose pure scent feeds the  soul  and  is  said to increase love  and devotion. No wonder why rose readily sparks adoration and admiration. Representing  love  and  beauty,  roses  are  the  symbolic  gift  of Valentine’s day.

Rose  oil  is  still  perhaps  the  most  frequently  used essential  oil  in perfumery and therapeutic skin care.  Being rich in Vitamin C, it works as a gentle flower oil that firms, tightens and evens skin tone. Sensitivity  and  fine lines seemingly vanish and the skin left with a soft, sweet scent.

Rose oil & rose water mist are blended in Flower  Mist  Facial,  leaving the skin resembling a delicate flower petal while its fragrance transports the mind to the state of serenity.

Only honeycomb hard wax is used for waxing services.
Honeycomb is a precise structure, has six sided wax cells. A group of certain bees, called house bees make the honeycomb wax.

Can Skin Troubles Really be Scrubbed away?

September 25, 2012

Late summer it is tempting to try to slough off our dry, sun-quenched skin and reach for the nearest grainy-scrubby skin product.
For centuries, scrubs have been applied to ‘peel and enliven’ tired over exposed skin. Indeed, scrubs have the noticeable ability to produce a seemingly instant result by leaving our face smooth and supple to the touch.
But that is not all scrubs leave us. On a microscopic level, observation shows that these tiny abrasive  particles actually scratch the skin’s surface, leaving fine lines and grooves ; a place for germs to hide and potentially cause more skin issues. The use of scrubs can not only lead to damaged skin, but can also lead to skin discoloration during its healing process from scratches.
There are gentler alternatives to rejuvenate the skin and lift impurities. Clays  or  non-granular exfoliation  with  regular  facials are great  for those with sensitive, problematic skin to safely revitalize the skin surface
