There are three products to try and which range in price depending on the ingredients and the product(s) selected. Try a facial steam to open pores and clear sinuses with a custom selection of herbs and florals. If you like soaking in a tub, I can fashion an aromatic bath blend for you to sink into. A body oil is a nurturing way to care for your skin and your soul. Scent can transport us to the past, take us into an unknown future and hold us while we rest, it can deepen, heighten and ease our senses, encouraging balance physically/emotionally/energetically in our body.
Bespoke formulating began with a passion for plants and the healing they offer both skin and soul. While working towards a certification in aromatherapy, I learned how to infuse oils with herbs as a method for healing skin and body wounds. This sparked my imagination because I am also a licensed esthetician who studied at a school that concentrated on natural skincare and ingredient knowledge.
My foundation for understanding plants and the healing they offer through their chemistry, came from practicing aromatherapy and skincare. A few years back, I developed a facial where I could customize both face mask and serum for the client, based on the needs of their skin. The longer I work with plants the deeper my understanding for their right to have a healthful life experience. I am selective and careful in my own practices of sustainability and do not take from endangered ecosystems. I no longer promote plants for their use to achieve external beauty, their medicine is deep and precious. My service is to create a bespoke formulation for your use in Self care.

Oil Infusions are created by soaking dried plant material, herbs and flowers in a botanical oil.
Some infusions steep for up to 6 months. I allow the process to unfold naturally and am guided by the how the botanicals are absorbed into the various oil bases.
As the botanical oils absorb the physical plant chemistries to treat pain, muscle spasms, or calm and condition the skin, I also expose the oil to music, a sunny window, prayer, a full moon, an eclipse and Solfeggio frequencies. For photos and information about the oils, you can find me on Instagram@ Kristina_Daniels_Essentials.
Oil Infusions and Botanical Formulations are used in the creation of aromatherapy blends, schedule a Cognitive Sensory session which includes a bespoke botanical formulation.
