About Solas Essentials
Founded by Daphne Sinclair
Solas is a Gaelic word meaning ‘Light’. The aim of Solas Essentials is to keep the lightness in our body and in our mind.
This is through Nature (Natural Products) and Movement (Pilates, Yoga, Massage). I believe everything is connected, our body, our mind and the environment we live in. This is being backed up more and more by science today.
Solas Products and Services provide mindful moments in your day where you can connect with your body, your mind and your senses. This in turn helps to reduce mind chatter, unnecessary worry and bring you into the present moment- NOW.
As a teacher, mother and business owner, I needed to consciously bring some mindful moments into my day. Solas came from the need to cater for my own sensitive skin and soul. Led by my passion for all things natural, I slowly began to make products to use on myself, my family and in my massage and movement business.
Due to having skin which can not handle harsh chemicals, Solas was created.
Solas Natural Products reduce the unnecessary absorption of nasty synthetics and chemicals into your skin which are too often used in everyday skincare and sprays. Only the finest ingredients are used with 100% pure essential oils creating deeply nourishing and effective products. The use of the essential oils bring a therapeutic property to each product along with providing you an opportunity to notice you. Apply, inhale, notice the effects of your mind and body, exhale, stay in that moment.
Solas Natural Products are a labour of love and many essential oil combinations have been tested on family and friends. It has evolved from the simple massage oils with paper labels to now and it continues to evolve.
What I love is that every Solas product has it’s own unique specific purpose and intention brought to you through the blend of the Essential oils and the intention while being made.
Essential Oils are extremely powerful and healing, they are a great tool to have in life for many ailments. It is important to have knowledge and awareness when using essential oils in their neat form. Every Solas product is blended to a safe and effective dilution for personal use, home use, for pregnancy and for your babies.
The Origin of Solas
Solas Products are Australian made in the growing town of Dunsborough ,WA. The Gaelic word Solas was chosen firstly due its meaning, light, but it also brought a connection to my Irish up bringing.
I started my career as a P.E. & Geogrpahy teacher in Ireland before pursuing a Pilates teacher training, followed by my Massage Training and into my Yin Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga and soon to be Children’s Yoga teacher training. I have always worked with people and the body in one way or another. I have a passion for movement and the connection between mind and body. Wether thats building strength, releasing tension, moving energy and how the mind works with it. The massage element of my business led me to Essential Oils and my own sensitive skin led me to finding alternative skincare. Without going on too much, becoming a mother reduced the amount of movement in my life initially, followed by a challenge to my mind. Creating products gave me a focus and brought some mindful moments for me into my days and weeks at home as a new mum.
I now have two beautiful copper tops (red heads:-)) who are 2 and 4 and I am slowly returning to teaching movement with the added bonus of my Solas Natural Products.
I love every part of what I do and each connects us to our body, mind and senses.
Whether you want effective, natural skincare, healing baby products, perfumes with purpose or therapeutic sprays, Solas Products have them all. Our products are made to the highest quality and integrity. Enrich your life and your mind with daily use of Solas Products and Services, Pilates, Yoga, Massage.
