Ali O. Skin Care & Aromatherapy is dedicated to healthy skin, and provides my clients with the finest, most natural, base oils, botanicals, and the purest essential oils for the skin everyone deserves-all from our natural Mother Earth. Ali O. was born out of my interest in natural skin care products for myself, and my family. I wanted to get the best value possible for my money. My Mother always taught my Sisters and I how important it was to take care of our skin, and I am so thankful to her. She insisted on teaching us her skin care regime which involved washing, exfoliating, toning, and moisturizing our skin. It was ingrained in us. I guess we’re lucky, because we enjoyed the ritual of it all. Needless to say, our Mom ended up paying for all these products. Since my teens, I have been a voracious user of lotions, soaps, scrubs, masks, toners, and just about any skin application that one can think of. Sixteen years ago, the choices were few compared to what’s out there today, and you can imagine the cost involved for all these products. When I left home, I of course continued on with my ritual, and became interested in making products that were more natural than you could find in the stores. Making my own products was also fresher, custom, no garbage ingredients, and less expensive. That was 16 years ago, and my passion is still going strong. Because of my skin care passion, I became interested in herbs, botanicals, medicinal essential oils, and complimentary alternative (holistic) medicine. That interest led me to believe that I needed more education. I found an accredited school in Portland, Oregon- The American College of Healthcare Sciences. There-I received a certificate in Natural Product Manufacturing, and a certificate in Aromatherapy. This education, plus sixteen years of producing natural products for myself, my family and others, has given me the knowledge necessary to develop natural products that I am proud to have my name on. The educational experience was and still is-SO inspiring and consuming-a true Love. I believe my products reflect my love and passion for skin care excellence. I am proud that I have researched and formulated each product with only beneficial ingredients that I would use myself-which I do everyday!!!! I offer my products to everyone, as fresh as can be, and formulated for optimum skin health. I truly enjoy talking about and educating people about skin care, natural remedies, and the healthy alternatives that are available to them now. Ali O. products are made for the health of your skin and for the health of the earth. All ingredients are wild crafted, no pesticides, natural, organic, and are researched for being ethically harvested. The essential oils are of the purest to be found. My packaging is recyclable. When available, I try to buy my ingredients locally to support my community. I plan on taking continuing education courses, along with educating the public by doing seminars, demonstrations, and community work, to offer information on Holistic and Complementary Alternative Medicine alternatives.
