Welcome to AskMara Aromatherapy Products where you can purchase essential oils, learn about aromatherapy and enjoy our aromatherapy products and the natural beauty products we have created. The AskMara Aromatherapy Products are created by Mara, a Certified Aromatherapist, and are handmade in the USA (Decatur, Indiana which is just south of Fort Wayne, Indiana). Aromatherapy began thousands of years ago and using botanicals and essential oils to create natural products is not new. From the beginning throughout history there is mention of essential oils being used as perfumes, lotions and to create healing bath salts. Many of us have become conscious of what we are eating and of our overall wellness, so it is not surprising that natural aromatherapy products are currently in high demand. So many of us are aware of the toxins in body lotions, room sprays, and skin care products and have been searching for more natural alternatives without formaldehyde, parabens, heavy preservatives, and sulfates.
You can say that my passion for aromatherapy began in 2010 when I took my first aromatherapy class and made my first purchase of essential oils. Shortly after that, I began using essential oils and started creating more natural products for myself to use. My first products made were eye make up remover and my 101 Use All Purpose Skin Salve. After using my products and loving them, I began sharing them with friends and customers and guess what, they loved them too!
So I broadened the aroma herbal salves I was making and expanded and began exploring natural skin products when one of my first customers with very bad acne asked me to help her and make her some natural facial care products. I created a cleanser, a moisturizer, and a toner. She really enjoyed them and found them very helpful and my facial skin care line grew from there. Shortly after that, I began creating natural body lotions, some with beeswax, some with emulsifying wax and we now have a full line of aromatherapy products where you can purchase essential oils, aroma herbal salves, body lotions, hand creams, and skin products.
My own journey toward wellness began in 1994 when I had an injury that resulted in Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Managing the chronic pain and the many other symptoms related to my RSD required me to change my habits and open up my mind to new ideas including alternative therapies. In order to achieve my current level of wellness, I have made many lifestyle changes and have tried many products, and have taken many vitamins and herbal supplements. Currently managing my RSD includes using the SoQi Products, taking quality supplements from Nature’s Sunshine Products, and using many of my own aromatherapy products and natural skin care products. It was during my own recovery process that I decided to continue my education in natural therapies, herbs, and aromatherapy.
My goal is still the same and always will be “Helping others create healthy habits – One Habit at a Time!”
