Bespoke Aromatics

Aroma Apothecary specializing in: 🍃Natural Body Care 🌸Natural Perfumes 🧘🏽‍♀️Relaxation & ZenGifts 😴Vintage Styled NightGowns

Owned & Operated by Sandra Topper, Professional Aromatherapist since 1992.

Mission: While maintaining a healthy life there is no place for artificial, and that’s why I love to create beautifully scented Aromatherapy products using only natural plant sourced essences, essential oils, resins, absolutes, natural isolates and co2 extracts. Despite the vastness of the 'handcrafted and all-natural' movement, the market is still saturated with products that are synthetically scented and sadly within this market, so many vendors charge exorbitant prices with exaggerated marketing and health claims. My philosophy has always been Natural is Best, but Natural does not have to be Expensive and I do not espouse to nonsense marketing claims indicating that my products will reverse the aging process or cure disease. Bespoke Aromatics/Prima Essence is a Canadian company that stands behind their ethics of being completely transparent about their ingredients.

All good things don’t necessarily come to an end ... time just moves us into different realms.
:
I have always been a firm believer in ‘Positive Psychology’ change is good, make lemonade, jump in the puddles, look for silver linings.
:
It was a pleasure to showcase my aromatic bartending skills with so many curious and beautiful noses.
:
It’s just too difficult to navigate the procedures and protocols of selling products that everyone wants to fondle and sniff.
:
The future is too uncertain and I need to consider the health of my family.
:
So going forward - you’ve had a chance to sniff - you know I make good smelly stuff - right? 🌸🍃
:
So just buy it online www.primaessence.ca
:
I will still create New Potions and will Fill Past Orders - you’ll just have to make an appointment. 🤩
:
AND - drum roll 🥁🥁🥁
Now I’ll have time to write a book or two 😉
:
Thanks everyone. ✌️🙏✌️🙏✌️🙏
Big hugs and virtual kisses. 😘🤗😘🤗😘🤗

Over the last one hundred years many folks have developed sensitivities to synthetic perfumes and to petrochemical derivatives in scented products and cosmeti...

The Neroli that I use in my products is Certified Organic (NOP) a pure unadulterated oil, steam distilled from bitter orange blossoms, harvested in Morocco.
:
Neroli possesses a powerful yet delicate aroma; floral, sweet with a twist of green citrus and a smoky undertone.
:
It is used extensively as a natural perfume ingredient and is a prized ingredient in skin care products.

With just a handful of Basic Essential Oils you can create dozens of combinations. Essential Oils smell so much better when you blend them together and it’s more cost effective when you use a combination of TOP, MIDDLE & BASE Notes - because the aroma will linger longer.
.
Patchouli is a fabulous BASE note and one of the most versatile because it goes with everything! But if you absolutely don’t like it, then substitute with Cedarwood except you’ll have to DOUBLE the number of Cedarwood drops because it has a much lighter aroma.
.
📝Always keep notes in a little journal of blends that you create.
.
🤔Think of an intention for the blend that you want to create, then use that blend repeatedly while practicing a POSITIVE behaviour - that’s the Therapy in Aromatherapy.
.
Be careful with Geranium & Peppermint because they will over-power the blend.💥

Neroli: Gorgeous Orange Blossom

#AromatherapyMiniEssay - Read my recent blog post about Orange Blossom Essential Oil. True Neroli oil is prized by Aromatherapists as being one of the most important oils in their collection, as the scent of Neroli can produce feelings of euphoria and lower respiration, thereby helping to reduce stress and help to quell anxiety.

primaessence.ca What is Neroli?Neroli ~ Citrus aurantium L. and/or Citrus bigardia L. possesses GRAS status (generally recognized as safe). Neroli oil contains more than 70 different natural occurring chemicals, however the constituents that are responsible for its lovely scent are primarily: linalyl acetate (43-68...

‘I perceive scent, in the same way that an artist sees colour, a photographer light or a musician sound’

Coined a professional nose, Sandra has been working with essential oils, absolutes and natural resins since 1992. Her interest in natural aromatics stems from her childhood days in England when she mischievously hid jars of concoctions under her bed which were filled with blooms from her mother’s garden.

During the early 90's she obtained accreditation as a Certified Aromatherapist and also has professional training in reflexology, herbology and holistic nutrition. Apart from having an outstanding repertoire for the chemical complexities of essential oils and their therapeutic properties, Sandra indicates that her true passion lies with the art of blending aromatics and prefers to be known as an aromatic mixologist or natural perfumer.

In 1993 Sandra founded two successful enterprises: a natural health retail operation, The Natural Nut Health Shop and Natural Sense Aromatherapy a wholesale distributorship. Over the years her businesses received accolades through several publications in industry

magazines, newspapers, and interviews on CBC radio and television talk shows. The Royal Bank of Canada featured her in several of their publications and she was coined as one of their Champion Women Entrepreneurs. In 2001 she also received an award from the Retail Council of Canada for being a socially responsible retailer.

After ten years in retail with two locations, Sandra decided to focus on her wholesale supply business known as Natural Sense Aromatherapy, which became one of Canada’s esteemed distributors of essential oils and spa products supplying hundreds of clients across Canada, the United States and beyond. In 1997, Sandra began teaching aromatherapy courses and was a guest instructor at several colleges in Ontario, teaching essential oil safety to massage and aesthetic students.

After the birth of her first grandchild, Sandra was compelled to sell her distribution company. Her granddaughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition called Loeys-Dietz syndrome, and it soon became evident that Sandra’s daughter needed her help with the little one due to multiple trips and numerous stays at the Hospital for Sick Children.

When Sandra sold her business in 2008, by law she was prohibited from working in her field, and had to abide by a Canada wide non-competition and non-disclosure agreement for five years. During this sabbatical, Sandra managed to squeeze in a number of other projects. Namely, co-founding a not-for-profit foundation, the completion of nine credits towards a degree in psychology and taught herself how to play guitar.

In 2015 Sandra opened an Aromatherapy Apothecary in Cobourg Ontario with the help of her two daughters.

Bespoke Aromatics is a thriving little aromatherapy boutique to which Sandra calls a 'retirement hobby' where she can play store, share her knowledge about essential oils and continue to cultivate her passion for aromatic formulation.
