Rina Altobelli began her scentual tale in far away London, 1983. She travelled there from Melbourne in order to pursue her love of aromatherapy under the tutelage of world-renowned Madame Micheline Arcier.
Immediately on her return she established one of the first aromatherapy outlets in the Melbourne suburb of Camberwell where she supplied quality essential oils and employed a team of aromatherapy practitioners. Nine years were spent at this practice, and as time passed Rina found the need to get more involved in the wholesale side of supply.
Eventually after selling the practice she re-established her aromatherapy supply base in bustling South Melbourne, it was there that she was able to concentrate on obtaining a Therapuetic Goods Licence and concentrated on extending her range by creating a multitude of new aromatherapy products where she was able to express her creativity to the fullest and was also able to manufacture and consult to other businesses to help create their own special products.
Essenza Pura Aromatherapy was the first company in Australia to introduce an extensive range of 24 Pure Essential Oil Aromatherapy Diffuser Blends. Essenza Pura Aromatherapy believes that when the balance between elements is right, as only those with the proper experience and instincts can know, the whole can be indeed greater than the sum of its parts. Essenza Pura Aromatherapy can supply these diffuser blends to your spa, shop, business or natural therapy centre as we are not a broad commercial company your business or centre can benefit by having an exclusive product at your disposal for the discerning client.
After about 9 years approximately in South Melbourne Rina felt the need for a change once more and soon after re-established herself in Healesville concentrating particularly to supply the overseas market with the help of the Australian Trade Commission.
This move was made in late 2003 and we are finally ready to make our mark on our present surroundings. If you are visiting the Yarra Valley you could let us know ahead by phoning us and if we are available we are more then happy for you to pick up any product you wish to purchase.
So once again after all this effort and transformation we feel ready for another rebirth for Essenza Pura Aromatherapy. we feel that aromatherapy is a process of continual development, to which experiment is the key. So while there are chapters of this story remaining to be written, we hope you are finding the journey as enriching as we are.
