Who am I and what is Kuura Essentials?
I want to share a little about me and Kuura Essentials, so you know what we are all about.
My name is Maija Vastamäki and I am the sole founder of Kuura Essentials. I am a Cidesco Beauty Therapist and a Bachelor of Business who specializes in essential oils and aromatherapy. I am constantly learning more on essential oils via the Tisserand Institute. I also study herbal medicine with Henriette Kress for my own interest.
I have been in and out in the cosmetic industry for approx. 20 years. In addition to aromatherapy and essential oils, I am also crazy about my family, Nature, Herbal Medicine and Chinese Medicine. Kuura Essentials is my accidental third child.
My interest in natural and holistic health care started, when I fell seriously ill in my twenties. Western medicine could only do so much, worked wonders as a band-aid and got me going, but did not get to the root of the problem. So, my journey started!
Since then, I have read A LOT. So many books that I don´t even know where to begin. Tried “millions” of different alternative treatments, some successful, some not, but found my way. So, my interest in nature, what it has to offer us, and its potential grew and grew as the years went by, so here I am now with Kuura Essentials.
My mission is to encourage people towards a more natural lifestyle. I want to share my constantly growing knowledge on essential oils and nature and want to offer you fantastic ready-to-use products that can help you with your well-being. Even though I know a lot, sometimes I feel like I am still a rookie. The more you learn, the more you find out that you know so little.
I also want to share my journey with you on living a natural lifestyle in the countryside by the sea. You will find interesting articles and my Journal on the website under the "news" section. Check it out!
Today, I specialize in aromatherapy, especially essential oil safety. Essential oil safety is still quite unknown, even though the use of essential oils and aromatherapy is gaining popularity.
My other areas of expertise are cosmeceutical products (i.e. using essential oils for different skin problems). I also specialize in formulating hydrous and anhydrous cosmetic products with essential oils.
My knowledge is based on new research and scientific findings on the benefits of essential oils, not forgetting personal experience.
All Kuura Essentials products are in a ready-to-use form, so you do not have to think about the dilutions, safety issues or which oils to choose from. I want aromatherapy to be available to all and especially to be easily accessible.
All relevant and safety information is found on the label of the product. The labels are multilayered, no outer package, in courtesy of nature of course.
All products are NATURAL AND ORGANIC. At the moment, our selection contains of:
- Therapeutic scents for morning and evening: Rise&Shine and Just Chillin´
- Functional products for tick and mosquito prevention: Outdoor No 1. and Outdoor No 2.
- Cosmeceutical product: Itchy&Scratchy for all those minor skin issues.
As mentioned earlier, Kuura Essentials is my accidental third child. Always wanted to have my own business, but never thought I would have the courage. But life has a way of making things happen if you are ready for it.
This is how Kuura was born: I posted a picture of the products I made for my family on my social media. So many questions were asked about the post and the products. I got a lot of feedback from friends that they are also interested in the products and could they buy them. Then it just hit me, THIS IS IT!
I organized a test group the following summer and decided that if the feedback is good, I will start my own company, if the feedback is bad, I will not. Well, as you may have noticed, here I am with my company. The feedback was EXCELLENT!
So, now you know a little about me and the company. Hope you enjoy us and do not hesitate to contact me if you have good ideas you want to share or if you are hoping for a product that is not on the market yet.
Aromatherapy Made Easy!
