Enjoying Island Essence on Maui

Made in Hawaii, since 1990

Established in 1990, Island Essence was one of the first of its kind to create spa treatments from the essences and fragrances of the Hawaiian Islands.

Today Island Essence is still a family-owned company, operating in Maui and powered by women. At our factory, we are either Hawaiian and/or born in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands. We love to share the beauty of Hawaii with the world through our handcrafted premium spa, bath and beauty products.

Supporting the Community

Giving Back

In the wake of the Maui Wildfires Disaster, Island Essence is donating supplies to the first responders and the shelters.

Our factory is out of the danger zone and our team are safe, and we thank our customers for their messages of support. But of course there are many who have lost family, homes, businesses and more. For those of you that have asked where to contribute, we recommend the Maui Strond Fund: https://www.hawaiicommunityfoundation.org/maui-strong. Maui Strong is providing financial assistance, shelter and food--no fees, 100% is directly distributed to the community. Alternatively, consider donating to the Maui Food Bank at https://mauifoodbank.org/donate/. For every $1 donated, they can provide 4 meals to the hungry.

Now, more than ever, we appreciate our customers--thank you for shopping small with us here in Maui.
