The love affair with blending aromatherapy oils began ten years ago when British national Paul Mercer created products for his personal use. In those days, he was working for Saudia Airlines. However, it was during that time that he created an airline spray concept. This airline spray is now developed and is now a popular product in his current range of products called IntentionS.
A newbie to the ARTE family, Paul has already taken part at ARTE’s markets at DFCM and RAK Hamra Mall. Regarding the IntentionS concept, he says, “The concept of the work is to bring aromatherapy that is parabens free into every home. It all began when I started to become interested in the value of using alternative therapies and complimentary medicines in daily life. My in-depth research led to studies and qualifications in blending and using the natural healing elements of aromatherapy and essential oils.”
Paul gains his inspiration in many ways, however, he loves customizing products for ARTE customers who give him the most inspiration in finding a healing method to assist with their everyday needs. He sources his materials from ethical suppliers in the UK who are certified organic/animal friendly and are suppliers of SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate)and Paraben free materials. This allows him to produce the highest quality and most natural of products.
While his personal favourite fragrance is a blend he created containing frankincense, patchouli and vetivert; when it comes to the favourite product he has created for his customers, it is Royal Facial Oil.
He also believes in the power of sleep and has created products to help one to sleep and put us back in balance. Sleep is usually undermined as people lead stressful lifestyles. Though it is not a novel concept, it is a gentle reminder from Paul to his customers that sleep is required to revitalize the cells and the body. Burning some Frankincense oil, with its distinctive and reassuring aroma, is one way to balance and calm the mind before one goes to sleep, he says.
Another product that he really enjoys making is the Intense Rehydration Cream.He says, “This is a blend of seaweed, aloe vera and base moisturising cream blended with essential oils. Blending reminds me of my other passion – Cooking!”
