ABOUT THE OILS
We believe that Soul-Healing can begin with the warmth of skin. We create our oils to be a catalyst for something positive for each person who uses them. Each one of our body and face oils have one-of-a-kind personalities, and they each represent a different route on our living road map at Jiva-Apoha. We imagine, compose, blend and heal.
Our blends are handcrafted and blended with a Holistic approach---balancing body, mind and spirit. All of our ingredients are cruelty-free, organic or wild-crafted, Ayurvedic-minded and healthy for every aspect of you. Our signature blends have reached a certain level of integrity because we do not settle for less than mind-blowing when it comes to our ingredients.
Our base oils are Ayurvedic therapeutic grade, organic seed and nut oils. They are sustainably cultivated and harvested by a variety of local organic farms in the U.S. They are made from all-natural herbs, plants, flowers and minerals. Each of our base oils gleam with their own unique shades of pale to medium- yellow, many degrees of clear and emerald green. Base oils can turn a handful of individual ingredients into a symphony of positive energy. They were chosen and created to provide deep, lasting nourishment for your skin and to strengthen the skin barrier. A strong skin barrier works in tandem with your immune system to keep your entire body humming. They each provide unique benefits to maximize their therapeutic value and allow the essential oils we use to truly come alive on the skin.
Our essential oils are all-natural and of the purest quality—completely unadulterated. We do not cut or dilute our essential oils. Jiva-Apoha’s signature oil is our precious Mysore Sandalwood. It grows rarer by the day and is not easy to find from a sustainable source—but not impossible! To us, nothing has ever been so worth the effort and cost. Another unique oil is our sigh-inducing Indian Pink Rose which we only use in our seductive SUNDARA (Beauty) Face oil for that magical multi-sensory touch. We also have quite possibly the richest, sexiest Black Jasmine and Amber oil from India which is exclusively used in our Personalized Blends. We’re always on the lookout for new specialty oils. We will never substitute any of our premium-grade essential oils for one of a lower quality. We want you to experience the thrill of being overtaken by pleasure, or a sense of comfort or a surge of energy – anything that moves you-- even just for a few minutes. We are obsessed by the luxury and beauty of really special oils, and that is part of the fun of what we do!

THE BEAUTY OF SCENT
We create our oil blends to have unique scent profiles which tie in to the traditional tenets of Ayurveda and Aromatherapy. Our goal is simple: we want our oils to move you. Perhaps it enhances yoga or meditation, or maybe it inspires you to move your body more, or engage in rigorous mental gymnastics. Perhaps there’s a blend makes you feel sexy as hell in your leathers and red lipstick. We aim for abundant beauty with our creations. Glowing, radiating healthy skin, softly fragrant but totally empowering with just a touch of body heat. If our signature scent blends are totally your thing and you want to amp it up, check out our Indian Summer ROCK N’ ROLL-ON Collection for a totally portable way to take your favorite Jiva-Apoha scent blend with you anywhere—even in a pocket of your skinniest jeans.
Each Personalized Blend we create is stunningly different from the next. Our essential and base oil palette is all but unlimited and we are so inspired by the people who request our help to build them their dream oil. Every story captures our imagination and we feel blessed to be a part of that story. All you need to do to get started is to fill out our Ayurveda-based questionnaire to help us to determine your present emotional and physical state and how we are going to help you get to your next stage with your Personalized Oil.
As a final touch, founder and creator of Jiva-Apoha, Angela Shore, blesses each bottle of oil before it leaves the studio to make its way to its new home. She also often blesses and purifies individual ingredients as she’s working with them, sometimes by burning Palo Santo, Sweet Grass, or White Sage. Angela puts her experience in Shamanic healing and energetic work to use by ensuring that the oil not only fulfills its therapeutic purpose, but creates joy, love and positivity for its user!
