In addition, essential oil can be absorbed through the skin and carried to the muscle tissue, joints and organs, made more effective with various healing techniques for its optimal medicinal benefits. However, essential oils may not be directly applied to the skin and its level of concentration may damage the skin. It should be diluted in correct proportion to ensure the sufficient concentration according to the purpose of use and the condition of the recipient.

With belief in the therapeutic power of aromatic plants, we have carefully created the wide collection of aromatic products under aromatherapy philosophy so that they can offer optimal benefits of healing power improving physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.



Ayurveda

Ayurveda, a form of complementary and alternative medicine, is the most ancient holy science of India over 5,000 years ago. This complex system of healing offers a variety of therapies aiming to balance and heal the mind, body and spirit.

Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words, meaning ‘life’ and ‘knowledge/science’. It views body comprising of 5 elements of human and be governed by 3 life forces - Vata (dominate air and space), Kapha (dominate water and earth) and Pitta (dominate fire and water) – and each person has characteristics of one or more these forces. Ayurveda emphasises a balance of these 3 elemental energies (also called doshas), that are important for health. The body will function to its fullest when they are in more balanced state, and when imbalances, the body will be affected negatively in certain ways.

Generally speaking, each individual possesses vata, pitta and kapha to certain levels, however there usually is one that is predominant. A vata type is likely to be artistic, with a nervous nature. A Pitta type is normally aggressive and hot tempered. A kapha is charitable and loving.

I plus Q Ayurvedic Collection incorporates wide range of essential oil blends and massage oils benefits from this Verdic philosophy aiming to equilibrate and heal mind, body and spirit. Its principle derives from Ayurveda viewing the body as part of the universe, sharing in its energies and how to achieve the good health is to balance these energies via the 3 life forces. By identifying your life force type among these three, the proper treatment is determined such as using massage oil or the essential oil blends in lifestyle activities. Once the life force is balanced, the good health is restored and optimised.

 

Indian Philosophy: Seven Chakras

Like the blades of a fan in motor of the machine, Chakras in ancient Indian philosophy function to vitalise the physical body, associating with our physical, mental and emotional interaction considered as the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies. With its circular motion to open the channel for life energy flowing into and out of our aura, Chakras (which are often referred to the shape of lotus flower or the windmill) are aligned vertically in sequence of human body, from head to toe, enable the smooth energy flow.

The following seven primary chakras are commonly described:

  1. Muladhara : Base or Root Chakra (ovaries/prostate)

  2. Swadhisthana : Sacral Chakra (last bone in spinal cord)

  3. Manipura : Solar Plexus Chakra (navel area)

  4. Anahata : Heart Chakra (heart area)

  5. Vishuddha : Throat Chakra (throat and neck area)

  6. Ajna : Brow or Third Eye Chakra (pineal gland or third eye)

  7. Sahasrara : Crown Chakra (top of the head; 'soft spot' of a newborn)

The major seven Chakras have the major roles in the functions and interactions between body and mind. Each Chakra also has its own purpose thus inspires I plus Q develop Chakra Collection in collaboration of the trained energy-workers to provide the power of essential oil blends enhancing the individual Chakra in regulating the flow of life energy in synergy of circadian or body inner clock. The therapeutic massage with using essential oil blends in this prodigious collection is one key in its wide range of treatments. Once the areas of blocked Chakra or energy flows are solved via massaging with Chakra essential oil blends, the re-energized body functions properly again.


Traditional Chinese Medicine: Yin & Yang

In parallel of Chinese Five Elements philosophy, Daoism Yin-Yang theory also originates the Traditional Chinese Medicine system.

Featuring the coexistence of dual paradox, Yin-Yang establishes the law of unity of the opposites like dark-bright or black-white which each element complements each other and that the human body is composed of a combination of YIN element: feminine, with cold, dark, quiet, static and wet properties and YANG element: masculine, with warm, bright, dynamic and dry properties.

The interdependence and interrelationship between substance and functions based on Yin-Yang Theory dictates the variation of the reliable and renowned healing system under the principle of harmony and balance of these 2 elements. I plus Q’s Yin-Yang Collection is adapted from this holistic treatment via its Essential Oil Blends and Massage Oils. This holistic practice is conducted with massage of various techniques together with the use of essential oil blends aiming to enable an individual to create their own spiritual architecture from this duo-element to restore the imbalanced system to achieve the proper body functions.


Organic

In the world of materialism, we are generally surrounded by synthetic and chemical elements that can be harmful to our health and total wellbeing. The creation of ORGANIC concept aims to naturalise the elements of what we consume internally and externally to decrease the degree of synthetic and chemical exposure.

Generally speaking, ORGANIC in skincare and cosmetic as being defined by EcoCert, is referring to the products with 95% minimum of natural ingredients or natural origin and only 5% of permitted synthetic ingredients are allowed. In addition, 95% minimum must come from organic-certified plant ingredients and 10% minimum must come from organic-certified ingredients.
