Island Essence is a family-owned company based on Maui, Hawaii for over 30 years. We create handcrafted bath and spa botanicals with the intoxicating fragrances and oils of Hawaii. We are currently celebrating 30 years of bringing Polynesian beauty to spas and homes around the world.
Established in 1990, by Martin and Denise Diamond, Island Essence was one of the first of its kind to create handcrafted bath and body products developed from the essences and fragrances of the Hawaiian Islands.
Denise Diamond, a master aromatherapist, brought 25 years of experience with
natural and organic products to Island Essence to meet the needs of the premium Hawaiian spas. Her extensive background in aromatherapy, herbology, natural skin care and holistic lifestyles are all integrated into our unique formulas.
All of our lotions, soaps, miracle and aromatherapy oils, aloe, candles and other spa creations are enjoyed for their wonderful fragrance and for their healing and calming effect on the mind, body and spirit.
Today, Island Essence continues to foster a feeling of family and community within Hawaii Nei (the islands of Hawaii)--we now bring our premium spa bath and body products directly to the local community and visitors from around the world.
