Because of this process, you can immediately experience the rich and deep penetrating effects of their products, as well as their magnificent aromas and colors. Their use handmade pulps versus extracts, which retains the full concentration and power of the herbal ingredients. Every ilike product is full of vitamins, fruit acids, and bioflavonoids, which combined with other ingredients, treat, nourish and beautify the skin rejuvenating it from the inside out.
History of Ilike:
Hungary – a land blessed with fruits, vegetables and herbs that draw their succulence from the soil and thermal hot springs of the Carpathian basin long known for being rich in minerals and trace elements found nowhere else on earth. A country in Eastern Europe with a long history of using locally available ingredients in their healing treatments. Due to the soil, the somewhat dry climate and abundance of sunshine, Hungarian herbs and fruits are uniquely rich in active ingredients and aromatic agents. From these ingredients Ilike Molnar, lovingly known as “Aunt Ilcsi”, has been creating organic skin care products since the late 50’s.
Aunt Ilcsi combined the family knowledge of herbal remedies with schooling at Vienna’s highly renowned Aesthetics School. Upon graduation with extensive study in biochemistry she began researching and developing all natural and organic skin care products. She believes, as her grandmother the village herbalist taught her, that what we need to maintain health and beauty can be drawn from nature around us.
From this heritage come the products of ilike organic skin care from szép élet, made in small batches from organically grown and handpicked herbs, fruits and vegetables -no mass production-, and containing the highest possible levels of natural active ingredients
The creation of Buddha Blends was started in 1998 by Renee Duval. Her experienced background in yoga, the healing arts and esoteric sciences prompted her to create a detoxifying bath formula without chemical additives and with just the right combination of natural ingredients for optimum results. No chemical preservatives of any kind are used. The fragrances used in the creams are pure essential oils and natural fragrance extracts. They do not contain endocrine- disrupting phthalates, present in so many personal care products containing synthetic fragrance. At Waterstone Spa we carry Buddha Blend’s organic line of body butters, bath salts, sugar scrubs, body lotion, body oil and Aura balancing sprays. Many of her wonderful scents are Coconut, Chocolate, Pikake, Amber, Sandalwood, Mandarin-Neroli, Peppermint-Lavender, Tahitian Vanilla and Mango-Papaya.
“I wasn’t finding what I wanted on store shelves, so I combined my own ingredients, resulting in an effective alchemical formula. I put together packages for family and friends. The response was positive! I continue to create products that are a culmination of the many parts of myself.”
“Buddha Blends embraces the philosophy of bringing beauty and grace to the process of personal refinement. This philosophy has been perfectly represented by Waterstone Spa. They have carried Buddha Blends exclusively in Ashland for the past seven years. They’ve recognized the value of all-natural, made to order, hand-blended, local products that contribute to the well being of all concerned. We have built a relationship based on mutual respect and integrity, the cornerstone of the Buddha Blends business model.
It’s truly a gift to offer these products through this spa, to our local community and visitors of Ashland.”- Renee Duval, Buddha Blends
