The Maker — Keely Watson

"... We can support our skin health and emotional well-being through its many ever-changing cycles, and at the same time know that what we choose to call upon isn't compromising our own health or that of the land. Working to elevate our life force and vibrancy, Aromatology products go well beyond skin health by introducing rituals of awareness, connection, mindfulness and touch, encouraging us to take pause and become deeply present in the moment. We are so much more than just this physical body, yet we can use it — the breath, sensation, and the skin, as points of entry to investigate the impact that our internal and external environment has on our entire being."


My experience as a Facialist expands over 17 years now and has gifted me the insights and wisdom that arise from the intimacy of one-on-one work. My philosophy and holistic approach to skin health naturally drew me into the study of aromatic science and plant medicine, from which the Aromatology range was organically born. With a reverence for plants, the land, and navigating our own innate healing process, I'm a forever student of Vipassana insight meditation and am once again diving deeper into the plant realm through Horticulture studies.


It’s no surprise I ended up down this path. As a young girl I have fond memories of foraging for wild flowers and plants from the native New Zealand bush which was my backyard. Once I’d gathered what I needed, my inquisitive nature would take over, stuffing fern fronds or entire stems of forget-me-nots into tiny glass bottles, adding a dash of water and a pinch of dirt to create all sorts of magical lotions and potions. I'd set each aside on a shelf to infuse for days, the curious young alchemist in me excited to smell the results. 


Needless to say, my blending technique has been well refined since those early years, yet my child-like curiosity still remains. My foraging nature extends around the world, while embracing all that our beautiful country Aotearoa has to offer. Formulated with wisdom, created with heart, and blended with intuition — this is Aromatology. 


... and let me share the magic of plants with you.
