Q: What is Aromatherapy?
A: Aromatherapy is a "caring, hands-on therapy which seeks to induce relaxation, to increase energy, to reduce the effects of stress and to restore lost balance to mind, body, and soul." ~The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy.
Ambrosia's Treasures approaches it from the belief that our body functions as a single system rather than separate body systems. At times both alternative and western medicine must work together. When we are balanced, we are at our highest level of optimal health. ~ Ambrosia's Treasures.
Q: Are our soaps vegan?
A: We have a handful of vegan and non-vegan soap and bath bomb recipes however, we also see the value beeswax offers to our skin and is an ingredient in a small collection of our soaps.
Q: Essential Oils & Are They Safe?
A: Essential Oils can be beneficial and safe for all when safety guidelines are followed. Keep in mind, no two essential oils are created equally and is why we provide safety guidelines for our spa collections. 80-90% of the essential oils used are 100% pure therapeutic oils and many have specific safety guidelines we share in our product descriptions. When using any fragrance or plant essence, we intentionally do not over scent our product. We also have unscented spa options.
Q: Why does Ambrosia's Treasures support wildlife conservation?
A: For two years I was blessed to be part of a local wildlife conservation & rehabilitation center and the best part was seeing the animals released! I have always felt a connection to them, especially sea turtles and believe we need to do our part to help protect the things that we love.
Q: Is your name Ambrosia?
A: Hi my name is Dionne, great to meet you! We chose 'Ambrosia's Treasures' because Ambrosia represents the food or drink of the Gods, the purest humans can receive. We strive to provide products made with the highest quality of local and/or Canadian ingredients. The addition of 'Treasures', because it would be out of character for us to focus on one product such as soap. We develop a range of Treasures fit for everyone!
Q: How did you get started?
A: You know how we are always looking for ingredients and products we can trust when deciding on bath and body products because we understand their importance? In creating my own line, I have developed products I trust and I am comfortable putting on my skin. "What you put on your skin is as important as what you feed your body" The first product I developed was our mini bath bombs, using 100% pure essential oils and no artificial colours. Creativity has taken control leading to a variety of items for everyone to enjoy!
