Island Essence - When you long for the Hawaiian Islands!
The Journey Begins...
Island Essence handcrafted bath and body products are designed and developed from essences of the Hawaiian Islands. Every bottle of spa quality product is mixed, poured and packaged by hand on the island of Maui, Hawaii.
Island Essence began on Maui more than 25 years ago. The original idea was to draw inspiration from the natural beauty of the Hawaiian landscape with its wide range of diversity. From the colorful seascapes and beaches, to the exotic flowers of the valleys, to the majestic mountains and active volcanoes.
Natural remedies were widely used in ancient civilizations around the globe, including here in Hawaii by the Kahuna (Hawaiian medicine men). Soothing with flower essences is an ancient form of healing and uniquely addresses the emotional aspects of wellness. In the case of these exquisite products, connecting us with the tropical beauty of the Hawaiian Islands and its way of life.
An Island Essence family keepsake is "The Complete Book of Flowers" in which the author and original founder of Island Essence was able to preserve her passion for flowers, gardens and essences by passing down recipes from one generation to the next.
Now, with the baton of ownership passed, Island Essence continues the tradition of designing products that touch the hearts of consumers. We treasure the opportunity to share Hawaii, giving people a chance to relive their memories with these exotic island ingredients.
Those captivated by the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands can take a piece of it home with them...literally!
