    Hi! I'm Paula Naples! I am a certified aromatherapist. My company is Pure Sense by Paula and I have a Custom Blending Bath & Body store in Santa Monica, CA. As a massage therapist with an aromatherapy background, I founded the company in 2000 in response to my and some of my friend's and families' sensitivities to commercial fragrance and perfumes on the market. Because of my love of nature, I was determined to find products that smelled wonderful but without any of the negative side effects. Our carefully selected essential and fragrance oils are of the highest quality and are highly concentrated, long lasting and contain no alcohol.

    We use NO ALCOHOL, NO MINERAL OIL, NO PETROLEUM PRODUCTS, and NO ANIMAL TESTING

    Currently, I have expanded into the wholesale market. We sell our Soy Candles, Body Souffle ,(whipped shea butter cream), and our Skin Smoothing Sugar Scrub wholesale and private label. Some of our clients have been: The Four Seasons (Beverly Hills), The Ritz Carlton (Marina del  Rey), Marks Garden Florist in Sherman Oaks,  Watr Essence Mermaid Oil, Stacia - Bungalow Scent, and Oasis Spa Palisades who carries our products.

    LIVE:Jamaican Herbs as medicne & food.A look at Kola Nut,Cho Cho,Comfrey&Ganja

    in Health

    An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the "oil of" the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. An oil is "essential" in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant.Essential oils do not form a distinctive category for any medical, pharmacological, or culinary purpose. They are not essential for health.


    Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression or solvent extraction. They are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and other products, for flavoring food and drink, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.


    Essential oils have been used medicinally in history. Medical applications proposed by those who sell medicinal oils range from skin treatments to remedies for cancer and often are based solely on historical accounts of use of essential oils for these purposes. Claims for the efficacy of medical treatments, and treatment of cancers in particular, are now subject to regulation in most countries.As the use of essential oils has declined in evidence-based medicine, one must consult older textbooks for much information on their use.


    Interest in essential oils has revived in recent decades with the popularity of aromatherapy, a branch of alternative medicine that claims that essential oils and other aromatic compounds have curative effects. Oils are volatilized or diluted in a carrier oil and used in massage, diffused in the air by a nebulizer, heated over a candle flame, or burned as incense.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_oil.
