‘As an acupuncturist, aromatherapist and healing holistic facialist, I believe skincare is far more than a superficial treatment. It’s a chance to shift one’s energy; to not only renew the skin, but to rejuvenate the self too. It’s a breath of fresh air in the midst of a busy day. A chance to stop, sigh, touch your skin and reconnect with what’s going on in your head’ 

de Mamiel started from a need in my life. At a time when I was going though chemotherapy/radiation treatment which dried out my skin. At the time I couldn’t find any products which helped, so I began to mix my own - something which would nourish my skin and give me comfort. Gravitating towards what I needed, I learned how to look after myself; to meditate, eat well. I also discovered Acupuncture and Chinese medicine. All of these things helped me get through my illness and became part of my life.
I went on to train as an acupuncturist and to study Chinese Medicine, working in a hospital in China for a while. I also studied medicine and Chiropractic at Sydney University, through which I learned in depth anatomy, physiology; the physics and biochemistry of the body. The scientist in me needs to know how something works. After all my training, I couldn’t leave any stone unturned, and I decided to study aromatherapy in depth. Apparently, my love of blending began when I was around 7, playing with my Barbie fragrance making kit! 

 

de Mamiel is a result of combining all these elements in my treatments, and my clinical practice is the inspiration for me to create products which result in real, visible changes in the skin and help get us through the day with more ease.
