My Emmy Journey

After weeks of preparation and hard work, I’m happy to share my experience with The Artisan Group and sending our products to the Gift Lounge hosted by GBK Productions in Hollywood, California, in honor of the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmys Nominees and Presenters.

A number of our products were prominently featured on display at The Artisan Group’s exhibit, and all attending celebrities received a HeadBalm or Mental Clarity Essential Oil Inhaler in their swag bags.

Mayim Bialik and Russell Hornsby posed for a professional photograph holding our display piece.

“I love this!” said Mayim Bialik about our products.

Mayim Bialik is best known for her lead role in the 1990’s NBC sitcom ‘Blossom’ and she currently stars as Amy Farrah Fowler on CBS’s ‘The Big Bang Theory’. She is the mother of two young boys, holds a Ph.D. in Neuroscience and is a spokesperson for the Holistic Moms Network. She is a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor and is devoted to a lifestyle of attachment parenting, homeschooling, natural family living and vegan cooking.

Russell Hornsby is best know for portraying police officer Eddie Sutton on the ABC drama ‘Lincoln Heights’ and Luke on the HBO series ‘In Treatment’. He is a successful stage actor, who has moved on to film and television and currently stars in NBC’s ‘Grimm’. He has a love for theatre as well as travel. He encourages opening your perspective by traveling, ‘I love the insight that it gives you on life and the world’.

A great experience overall and maybe next time, I can attend in person.

A-H MEN: The Importance of a Natural Shave

We are in the research and development stages of a new line of products formulated specifically for men. My husband had been asking me about a treatment for shaving bumps and had mentioned that it was also an issue for the men in our family, as well as some friends.

Our new line will be called A(romatic)-H(ealth) MEN. Amongst the new products, we will begin with the launch of our A-H MEN pre shave treatment, shaving lotion and aftershave spray. These products are geared to aid with the prevention and treatment of pseudofolliculitis barbae (shaving bumps). These products will be available individually or as a set.


Men are increasingly becoming aware of the benefits of using natural treatments and products for common conditions and to take care of their skin. Products in the A-H MEN line are being formulated for conditions such as hair loss, infection of the hair follicle, shaving bumps, athlete’s foot and custom formulations.

Men are realizing that a bar of soap, which dries their skin, and drugstore brand gels and lotions are not ideal for their daily skincare routine. Many others are reacting to the numerous chemicals found in most skin care products, or just want to stop stealing products from the women in their life. Our pre shave treatment has a number of benefits, such as softening the hair follicles and reducing the number of nicks and cuts. Our shaving oil lubricates the skin and protects it from the abrasive scraping of the razor blades as they pass over the skin. Shaving oil will provide a closer shave, with less irritation, not clog pores and contain only natural ingredients and no toxic chemicals.

In many cases of folliculitis, the follicles are infected with bacteria or fungus. Pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB) is most common on the face, but can also affect other parts of the body, which are shaved or plucked. As hair begins to grow back after shaving, curly hair grows into the skin, instead of straight out. It affects men with coarse or tight curling thick hair.

There are a number of essential oils, which help with alopecia (hair loss) by stimulating the hair follicles. Folliculitis (infection of the hair follicle) and pseudofolliculitis (shaving bumps) are helped by antibacterial essential oils and vegetable based carrier oils, which are moisturizing and non-irritating. Tinea pedis (athlete’s foot) is a fungal infection and is helped by the antifungal properties in a number of essential oils. Studies have shown essential oils to have antimicrobial and cytotoxic properties for other ailments. For these types of treatment, a personal consultation is required.


Small Canadian Company Joins the Big League at Emmy Awards Telecast


Bigger is not always better, at least when it comes to quality products in the world of natural healthcare alternatives. Aromatic Health, a small independent company based in Waterloo, Ontario has been selected among hundreds of competing companies to showcase its product line in association with The Artisan Group, September 16-17 at a Gift Lounge hosted by GBK Productions in Hollywood, California during the week prior to the Primetime Emmy Awards telecast.

“We are thrilled to be included in such a prestigious event,” Michelle Reynolds, certified aromatherapist and owner of Aromatic Health told us. “We’re a small company and have only been in business for about 10 years so to be included in an event of this size and caliber is great recognition for our products.”

The Artisan Group is a collective of talented artisans who provide a sampling of the “best of the best” products to celebrities and members of the press. “Exposure generated by being included in this type of event has launched many a business to the next level so we’re very optimistic about our future,” Michelle added.

Aromatic Health will have several of their products prominently displayed at The Artisan Group’s exhibit – HeadBalm, Mental Clarity Inhaler, Muscle Ointment, Hemp Bum Butter, Postpartum Perineum Spray and Peppermint Lip Balm. In addition, all celebrity recipients will receive a complimentary HeadBalm or Mental Clarity Essential Oil Inhaler.
