ABOUT AMBRE BLENDS

Introducing Ambre Blends Solid Essence

After being in business for over 20 years, we have created an entire line of body products that not only radiate the scents that you love but that are also great for your skin. We felt that the time was right to introduce something new, and we’re excited to be adding a new product that we know you’re going to love: a solid essence.

Solid fragrances have been around for centuries. We have been tossing around the idea of bringing back the old school solid application of wearing a scent for a while, and then one of our Ambre Blends family members mentioned it during a brainstorming session and we knew we had to make it a reality.

Why a Solid Essence?

We are always telling our customers how hydrated skin holds on to scent better than dry skin. The beautiful thing about a solid essence is that it moisturizes and hydrates your skin during application which helps radiate the scent. The more hydrated your skin is, the better the scent will radiate. So now you have another way to wear the Ambre Blends scent that also keeps your skin moisturized.

We kept the Ambre Blends Solid Essence very clean and simple using only two ingredients in addition to our pure Ambre Blends Essence – sunflower wax and olive wax. Thanks to these skin-loving waxes, the solid essence melts into your skin beautifully and easily.

Sunflower wax is full of essential fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E. It is great for preventing dehydration in your skin and has nourishing, calming, and antibacterial properties while being 100% natural and vegan. Olive wax is also rich in vitamins and antioxidants to help improve skin moisturization and increase collagen. It has antiaging properties, provides relief from sun damage, and is 100% natural and vegan.

The Inspiration

I used to wear a scent in high school that came as a solid in an ornate jar, and it always felt so special to me. I wanted to bring back that feeling with our solid essence by housing it in a gorgeous jar, so we created a sleek ½ ounce frosted jar for this special product with a pure bamboo lid that is recyclable and biodegradable.

Available in all five scents, this is a product that is easy to travel with, does not leak, and you can apply it anywhere (external use only). Not only is this product amazing on your skin but you can put some in the ends of your hair just like the pure essence oil.

How to Wear Ambre Blends Solid Essence

The way I apply our solid essence is by scooping out a little bit with my finger and putting it directly onto my forearms. Then, I rub my forearms together front and back from wrist to elbow. I’ll take a little bit more out of the jar with my finger to rub it onto the back of my neck, my chest, and into my hair.

Just like our essence oils, the solid essence is an intimate application that is activated by your body chemistry and body heat. You can wear the Ambre Blends Solid Essence solo or pair it together with your pure essence oil for an extra boost of scent. You don’t have to stick to only one scent, feel free to mix and match scents and products in our line.


Ambre Blends Men’s Collection

Ambre Blends Mens Set

Hey guys, are you taking care of your facial hair and the skin underneath? You might not realize it but your skincare routine is important! And while all of our Ambre Blends products are unisex, we have created the Ambre Blends Men’s Collection designed specifically to meet the grooming needs of the modern man.

Not only do we love making you smell great with our five unisex essence oils, but our entire product line is made with a purpose behind it for your skin’s health.

Ambre Blends Face & Beard Oil: Your face will be feeling fresh, rejuvenated, and nourished while also being fortified against the effects of gaining with our Face & Beard Oil. And it’s great for more than just your skin – it also softens facial hair, making it easier to manage your mane. Created with over 12 natural and certified organic ingredients chosen for their medicinal and healing properties combined with our signature essences, the Face & Beard Oil is the perfect tonic for your skin and beard.

Use one pump into the palm of your hands and apply the oil evenly throughout your beard and face. The oil will absorb quickly and then softly radiate our signature scent all day long.

Pure Olive Oil Soap: Made with pure olive oil and other all-natural ingredients, our Pure Olive Oil Soap creates a silky smooth lather upon which your razor’s harsh effects are mitigated and replaced with a hydrating, smooth, and pleasurable shaving experience. If you’re traveling, cut your soap into smaller “travel” sizes to take with you.

Wet the soap with water and thoroughly work it between your hands to create a rich, full lather. Apply the lather generously to your face and neck, then shave and/or wash as normal.

Beard Combs/Picks: Our Ambre Blends Beard Picks and Combs are handmade in the USA by an individual craftsman using renewable sourced American Red Oak hardwoods. They are laser cut to prevision by the same craftsman who then finishes them by utilizing a three stag sanding process to achieve a smooth, snag-free comb/pick. We coat each one with our signature Ambre Blends Essence to seal the wood for longevity and to leave it smelling amazing!

Men’s Sets: If you’re looking for the full Ambre Blends experience, grab a set! We have sample sets available online so that you can try two of our top products for men (the Pure Olive Oil Soap and Beard & Face Oil) before buying the full size. We also have the Men’s Set that contains a 1oz Face & Beard Oil, Pure Olive Oil Soap, and 12ml Oil Essence. Both of these sets are available in all five of our signature essences.

 


What to Keep in Mind When Wearing Natural Essence Oils

Unlike synthetic perfumes and colognes, Ambre Blends Essence Oils are designed to complement your body’s natural chemistry so that every time you apply our products, your body emanates a soothing, long-lasting aroma unique to you.

We use a mix of plant-based oils to create our five essence blends. In staying true to the natural development of the plant based oils that make up our five scents, we do not add any chemical stabilizers or fixatives to our blends, so the plant-based oils will continue to naturally mature and the scent will continue to develop with time. A new bottle will not start off smelling the exact same as an old bottle as the older bottle will be further along in development. 

Various other factors can affect our blends such as exposure to light, change in temperature, and even exposure to oxygen. Also, please keep in mind that our blends are considered “skin scents.” Skin scents work with a person’s body chemistry. Body chemistry, which naturally changes and adapts to our health, diet, stress levels, environment, season, and more, is a huge factor into both how our body radiates scent and how we interpret scent.

Take a look at the things Ambre Blends can and can’t control when it comes to our natural essence oils:


Bubble Bath is Back!

Bubble Bath is Back!

Available in limited quantities, Ambre Blends Bubble Bath is a luxury bath soak that uses natural, vegan, cruelty-free ingredients and is handmade in the USA. The Bubble Bath is formulated to moisturize and soften your skin while radiating your favorite Ambre Blends Essence.

Each bottle is 8oz and we recommend using 1oz per bath. Our products don’t contain synthetic ingredients; therefore, you’ll want to agitate it with your hands while you pour the Bubble Bath to help create bubbles, which will then settle into the water. Lay back, relax, and enjoy your bath!

What People Say About Ambre Blends Bubble Bath

“This is the second or third time I ordered the Bubble Bath. I LOVE IT, just like I love all your products.”
-Annette

“The Ambre Essence Bubble Bath is the best bubble bath I’ve ever used! My bathroom smells amazing the whole next day. And my skin feels and smells fantastic for a whole 24 hours.”
-Patti

 


pH Imbalance and Natural Deodorant: What Does It All Mean?

Ambre Blends Natural Deodorant

Do you notice that your body odor is stronger than usual? Have a sudden irritation in your underarms? Then it’s time to talk about your underarm pH balance.

Our bodies are constantly working to maintain pH balance while many factors can be working against it. Everything from what you eat and drink, medications, new products in your daily routine, stress, hormones, and more can throw off your pH balance, causing a strong underarm odor.

Natural Deodorant is most effective when your underarm pH is balanced. If you’ve noticed any of the imbalance symptoms, don’t fret – you can rebalance your underarm pH to get your pits happy and healthy once again.

Sweating is normal, but when your pH balance is restored and with continued use of natural deodorant you’ll notice less sweat and get rid of body odor. Instead, you’ll be radiating your favorite Ambre Blends Essence as your body heats up!


Introducing Ambre Blends Hand Sanitizer

Say goodbye to 99% of germs with our new Ambre Blends hand sanitizer!

Ambre Blends hand sanitizer is formulated using plant-based ingredients that leave your skin moisturized and feeling silky. It is absorbed easily with a non-sticky, smooth feeling finish. Within a couple of seconds, your favorite Ambre Blends Essence will radiate and you’ll continue to smell that scent radiating throughout the day.

Our hand sanitizer kills over 99% of germs on contact so your hands can stay clean on-the-go. One pump is all you need for full coverage, and there are over one hundred uses per 1oz bottle. Available in all five Ambre Blends scents. Don’t forget to recycle the bottle once you’re done!

Here’s what people are saying about Ambre Blends hand sanitizer…

“Another great products! I have Ambre and Unmasque, I will definitely be ordering this again!”
-Tina

“This stuff is AMAZING. It goes on so smooth and is very hydrating, and obviously smells amazing. Thank you for this!”
-Merissa

Spread love, not germs, with Ambre Blends Hand Sanitizer.


Don’t Dump on the Pump

We get it, change is hard.

In the beginning of 2020, we upgraded our 10ml oil essence bottles from a roll-on to a pump dispenser after spending almost two years designing a new bottle and applicator. It was time for a change. These new bottles were designed specifically for Ambre Blends to give the wearer the exact amount of oil essence they need to radiate their favorite scent all day long.

We know it takes some getting used to, but we think after you use the pump for a while you won’t miss your old roll-on. Don’t dump on the pump – here are six reasons why you should love it:

  1. The 10ml pump bottles are more sanitary than the roll-ons. When you go into a retailer and try the testers, do you know how many other people have rolled that bottle onto their skin? We don’t even want to think about it. Now that retailers have the 10ml pump bottles, you don’t have to worry about who has tried the scent before you since they simply pump it into their hand.
  2. No more leaking. All roll-on bottles are a controlled leak to dispense oil. Unfortunately, we have no control over how the oil comes out of the bottle over time. The roll-ons either came out too fast or the oil wasn’t coming out enough – we even had bottles leaking on airplanes due to the air pressure. With the 10ml pump bottles, we don’t have issues with leaking thanks to eliminating the rollerball.
  3. The 10ml pump bottles protect the integrity of the oil. Every time you use the roll-on, the stainless steel ball that dispenses the oil onto your skin also picks up any other products you might have on your skin and deposits it back into the bottle. The rollerball picks up everything from sweat to spray tans to bacteria on your skin. With the pump bottles, the dispenser doesn’t make contact with your skin, protecting the oil inside.
  4. One pump gives you the perfect amount of oil. When designing the new bottles, we created the dispenser to pump out the amount you need to radiate all day long. When using the old roll-ons, some people didn’t use enough oil and others used way too much oil. With the pump bottles, one pump is all you need. One pump per day should make your bottle last approximately three months, and you can even use a half of a pump if you’d like to use less.
  5. The pump bottles encourage correct oil application. Because this is a natural essence, it needs heat and friction to activate. With the pump bottles, you put one pump into your hand and rub it onto your forearms, back of your neck, onto your chest, and even into the tips of your hair. This is how the product was intended to be worn – activated by your body heat and body chemistry.
  6. It’s easy to refill. The new 10ml pump bottles twist on and off, making it easier than ever before to refill with a 30ml refill bottle.

In addition to these six reason why we love the pump bottles, you might notice our new packaging had ditched the stick-on labels and now has our logo printed directly on the bottle. After you start using the pump bottle, we think you’ll understand why we’re so excited about this new packaging. Put the roll-on down and pick up a pump!

“I absolutely love this set! It’s one of my favorite things to gift to friends and myself. As someone who travels quite a bit, bringing these amazing aromas with me help me feel more at home when I’m on the road.”
-Amber

“These travel sets are the best! They make for a perfect gift. If it weren’t for this set, I might not have ever tried the natural deodorant. And now I haven’t switched back to any other deodorant. This is also how I got hooked on the Skin Tonic. Seriously the best gift you can give or receive.”
-Melia

“I love being able to get all of my favorite Ambre Blends products in this travel bundle and having these products with me when I do travel. Being a person who flies regularly, I love that I have no issue getting these through!”
-Amanda


Natural Fragrances vs Synthetic Perfumes: What You Need to Know

Do you know the different between natural and synthetic fragrances? The popularity of natural fragrances is quickly on the rise – they are concentrated with less fillers, stick to your skin longer, and aren’t full of dehydrating chemicals. And you get the added bonus of knowing that everything your skin is absorbing is safe and suitable for most skin types.

The majority of synthetic fragrances are made from petrochemicals, which have been linked to cancer, reproductive toxicity, allergies, and more. These petrochemicals are absorbed into your skin and breathed into your lungs every time you use products that contain synthetic fragrance. Synthetic fragrances can be hidden in everything from cosmetics and skincare to cleaning products and candles.

Synthetic fragrances tend to be more offensive to those around you than natural fragrances. You know the feeling of walking into a department store and having your senses assaulted by the harsh smell of dozens of perfumes. When you wear synthetic perfumes and colognes, it’s very likely you’re causing those in your path to be offended from the overwhelming odor.

Natural Fragrances are Long Lasting

On average, natural fragrances will last anywhere from six to 15 hours. We read comments from our customers all the time saying they can smell their Ambre Blends on their clothes or skin a full day later. Synthetic fragrances last for an average of one to three hours. Dry skin has a hard time holding onto scent, and when you use a synthetic fragrance that contains alcohol it can contribute to your skin drying out even more. On the other hand, natural fragrances are sometimes known as “skin scents” because as your body temperature gradually increases, the scent begins to grow stronger.

Natural Fragrances Aren’t Overpowering

Natural fragrances such as Ambre Blends oil essences are alcohol-free and have a clean, rich, true scent. Since our oil essences are alcohol-free, they have a long shelf life – you’ll notice that the longer you have your oil essences the stronger they will get. Synthetic fragrances have a scent that is harsh, overbearing, and overpowering. Since synthetic fragrances are made with 80-97% alcohol, they have a short shelf life due to alcohol evaporation.

Natural Fragrances are Great for Sensitive Skin

Since natural fragrances use natural ingredients, they are less likely to cause allergic reactions. Natural fragrances also tend to have fewer ingredients to emit a richer aroma. Synthetic fragrances are full of fillers and chemicals, which means a much higher probability of causing an allergic reaction. If you have sensitive skin, it’s time to switch to a natural fragrance!

Natural Fragrances are Moisturizing

Natural fragrances are made with oils that will assist in nourishing and moisturizing your skin, helping it to retain the scent on your skin longer. You and only those close to you will experience the pleasant, natural aromas, not leaving a trail of odor behind you like traditional perfumes and colognes. Due to the high alcohol content in synthetic fragrances, these will remove your natural body oils causing dry skin. They are also highly flammable.

After seeing how natural and synthetic fragrances stack up to each other, which would you rather put on your skin? We think the choice is clear.

All About Ambre Blends Pure Soy Wax Candles

We all love burning our favorite candles at home – whether it’s winter and you want to get cozy or it’s summertime and you’re enjoying your favorite scent. But did you know that the majority of your scented candles are made from synthetic fragrances which can put your health at risk?

While scented candles are great for creating a relaxing ambiance, some candles can emit hazardous chemicals when you burn them such as benzene and toluene, which can cause damage to the brain, lungs, and central nervous system as well as cause developmental difficulties in children. Frequent use of candles with synthetic fragrances can lead to allergies, asthma, and even cancer.

Introducing: Pure Soy Wax Candles

We’ve created a 100% pure soy wax candle with a wooden wick that is organic, non-toxic, eco-friendly, and sourced from FSC-certified mills.  Our candles come in Solace or Unmasque Essence housed in a recyclable clear glass jar. The 11oz candles burn for 100+ hours and the 3oz candles burn for 30+ hours, all while emanating the aroma of the natural essence – we don’t ever use any synthetic fragrance in our products!

The 3oz pure soy wax candles are great for smaller rooms such as a bath or laundry area, while the 11oz pure soy wax candles work well in bedrooms or living rooms.

Burning Your Candle

For best results, trim the wooden wick to between 1/4 to 1/2 inch before lighting. On your first use, tiny sparks and crackling may occur. Our wooden wicks burn slowly with a small flame to extend the candle’s life and help keep your air clean.

To maximize your candle’s burn time, do not extinguish the flame until the entire top layer of wax is melted to the edges. Blowing out your candle too soon could cause the candle to “tunnel” or only burn down the middle. When your candle tunnels, the wick cannot get enough oxygen to burn and will make it hard to light in the future.

After your first burn, it’s best to keep the wood wick trimmed – pinch off the split part of the wooden wick before you light it again to help maintain the wick and keep your candle lit.

What People Are Saying

“I’m super sensitive to synthetic scents, especially candles, so I was so excited to see that Ambre Blends made these pure candles. They are the only ones that I like to burn and use because I’m not coughing or reacting to them like I would a typical store-bought candle. Plus the Solace scent is so unique that you can’t help but want to use it all the time.”
-Ami

“This was given to me as a gift and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on another one! Perfect for mommy’s quiet time (which doesn’t happen very often) when I take a bath. Love the smell and amazed at how long the scent lingers. Love it!”
-Camilla

New Packaging Alert!

We’ve made a design shift with our 10ml pure essence oils…and we’re PUMPED to tell you about it!

Introducing our new 10ml Pure Oil Essences, with a pump! Our new 10ml packaging and applicator was specifically designed to give you the exact amount of oil essence you need to radiate our Ambre Blends scents all day long. More importantly, the pump forces you to rub in the oil essence, creating the friction and heat necessary to immediately help activate the aroma of Ambre Blends, and your body heat and chemistry will take it from there.

Highlights of Our New Packaging

Another reason we’re excited about the new 10ml pumps because it will better protect the integrity of the oil essence. You won’t be rolling up anything that’s on your skin into the bottle (lotion, bacteria, a spray tan, etc.) but simply pumping the pure oil essence into your hand to use. The new bottles are to refill with a twist on/off pump applicator, so you can stock up with a 30ml that will refill your pump three times while saving you money.

One pump dispenses the perfect amount of oil, and a 10ml bottles with a pump last an average of three months. It’s the same oil as before, simply a new bottle design that we love…and we think you’re going to love it, too!


Refill Your 10ml Oil Essence With a 30ml Bottle

Our 10ml oil essence pumps are our most popular product – but did you know you can refill them?

Don’t keep buying new 10ml bottles, refill with a 30ml bottle. We have 30ml refill bottles of our pure oil essence in all five scents, which are three times the volume of the 10ml pump bottles. If you’re a repeat customer, the refill bottle is a great option for you; a refill bottle saves you 25% in cost versus buying three 10ml pumps. It’s a better deal economically and environmentally!

Refilling your 10ml pump is easy, check out this quick video of Ambre refilling a bottle of Ahnu.

All About Ambre Soak

Ambre Blends Bath Soak

After a yoga session, workout, or a stressful day, Ambre Soak is exactly what you need. Our Soak is a mineral-rich, natural, and therapeutic bath soak that leaves your body radiating the scent of your favorite Ambre Blends Essence. You also get the added bonus of your bathroom smelling great afterwards!

Back in the beginning of Ambre Blends, Ambre made a bath soak for her clients. But as the Ambre Essence Oil started getting more popular, we turned our focus over to the oils. Since then, we’ve had some of our OG customers ask if we would ever do the bath soak again – and we decided that now was the time to bring it back!

Salt soaks are a great way to practice self-care. Ambre Soak is ideal for skin care, as well as detoxifying and relaxing tired, achy muscles.

Ingredients

Our Soak uses three salts – Dead Sea Salt, Mediterranean Sea Salt, and Pacific Sea Salt. All of our salts are 100% unrefined and in their purest form, non-GMO, kosher, and do not contain any MSG, soy, gluten, or dairy.

The fourth ingredient in our Soak is Cambrian Blue Clay. We searched high and low for the purest Cambrian clay we could get our hands on from deep within the earth. Clay is amazing for your skin, rich and unique in mineral composition. It has been known to have powerful medicinal properties, used to help treat eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, acne, varicose veins, and other skin conditions. Cambrian clay cleanses, restores, and renews the epidermis layer of your skin so that it will be more smooth and supple. Not to mention it aids in blood circulation. You can see why we love this clay so much!

Bonus: With each Ambre Soak, you get a piece of rose quartz on top! “I wanted to do something different that I don’t see in salt soaks,” said Ambre Crockett, owner and creator of Ambre Blends. “When we take a bath, we are giving care to ourselves, so what enhances that? Rose Quartz.” You can set the crystal next to your bath or put it in the bath while you’re in it.

What to Expect When You Use Ambre Soak

After using Ambre Soak in your bath, your skin will be left feeling soft, smooth and supple. You’ll feel more relaxed as your aches and pains melt away. Not only will it relax your body, but it will also soothe your mind. You’ll radiate the smell of Ambre Blends when you come out and so will your bathroom.

You might have a little bit of a leftover residue in the tub after your bath. Simply rinse it out while your bath is still wet. Don’t worry, it won’t clog your drains; all the ingredients in the Soak come from the earth and will be going back into the earth as you wash them away.

We recommend 2 oz of Soak in your bath, but you can use more if you feel you need more. Shake it into the bath while the water is running and swish it around. You’ll notice the clay may alter the color of your bath.

Now lay back, relax, and enjoy an Ambre Soak!


Everything You Need to Know About Ambre Blends Face & Beard Tonic

Hey guys, do you give much thought to the health of your face and facial hair? You might not realize it but the skin underneath your facial hair needs some love, too! Every time you wash your face, you should be moisturizing your skin afterwards to prevent it from drying out, regardless of if you’re hair-free and baby-faced, cleanly shaven, scruffy or fully-bearded.

Lucky for you guys, we have the perfect product to not only nourish your skin but also for bearded gentlemen, it will keep your facial hair healthy and soft.

Ambre Blends Face & Beard Tonic

Not only do we love making you smell great with Ambre Blends Oil Essences, but our entire product line is made with a purpose behind it for your skin’s health. That’s where Ambre Blends Face & Beard Tonic comes in.

Ambre Blends Face & Beard Tonic is a nourishing oil for the grooming needs of the everyday modern man. This is a pure, natural oil that leaves your face feeling fresh, rejuvenated and nourished while also fortifying your skin against the effects of aging. Our Face & Beard Tonic also softens facial hair, making it easier to manage your mane.

Containing over 12 natural and certified organic ingredients chosen for their medicinal and healing properties, combined with our signatures essences, our Face & Beard Tonic is the perfect tonic for your skin and beard. Once the oil absorbs into the skin and hair, the natural smell of the oils will dissipate and the Ambre Blends Essence will radiate throughout the day!

Good Skin is Hard to Achieve

Our Face & Beard Tonic is a power-packed smoothie for the face, hair and body. It is a rejuvenating and healing oil that consists of a mixture of pure organic oils that come as a plant base or raw. We hand-picked these ingredients due to their medicinal and healing properties.

With that being said, you will smell some of these nutrient oils right off the top and from the bottle. Remember that these are raw oils, which is what you will initially smell. It is not until those oils are absorbed into the skin & hair that the Ambre Essence (Ambre, Invoke, Solace, Ahnu, or Unmasque) will have a chance to radiate its aroma throughout the day.

We all love a good beard, but it can be hard to maintain without some help. Whether your beard is in the beginning stages of stubble or it is big and burly, Ambre Blends Face & Beard Tonic can help as a conditioner. Use it as an aftershave to soothe irritated skin and it will work double-duty by softening your mane.

How to Apply

For best results, pump a small desired amount into your hands and apply evenly throughout your beard and face. The best time to apply is after you wash your face so that your pores and hair follicles are open and absorbing the product. The Face & Beard Tonic will absorb quickly and will softly radiate our signature scent all day long. You can even use the oil all over your body to soothe dry skin.

Why Beard & Face Oil?

Men’s grooming used to consist of a razor and a bar of soap, but the modern man’s grooming habits have evolved since then. Men’s skincare and grooming products have exploded since the 80s and are growing to cater to each individual’s skin and hair needs. There is an emphasis on healthy skin and hair for men and we’re listening!

No one wants flaking skin on their face or a dry, brittle beard, and it doesn’t hurt if the products you use can help slow the hands of time. You take care of the hair on your head, so why not the hair on your face as well? While your scruff can be sexy, it shouldn’t feel like sandpaper when it rubs against another person’s skin. Thanks to the natural and organic ingredients used in Ambre Blends Face & Beard Tonic, you don’t have to worry about that anymore.

What’s Inside

Though many ingredients share similar beneficial properties, the extensive combination of these ingredients ensures that users of Ambre Blends Face & Beard Tonic will see definitive improvement to the health and beauty of their skin & hair. Our natural and organic ingredients with their benefits include…

Introducing Ahnu

In numerology, 2017 is year one (2+0+1+7=10, which breaks down further to the single digit of 1). A universal “1” year represents the start of a fresh new cycle. 2017 bids us all to start something brand new, something that expresses our uniqueness and opens us up to new perspectives. This year feels different from all the others since it is a new beginning. This is a fresh start; things are falling by the wayside that do not service us anymore.

Ahnu: What It Means

To me, being that this is spring, launching a new scent now in year one is new. It’s a new beginning; a rebirth, refresh and restart. While creating the scent, the name “Ahnu” found us, which was a sign that it’s meant to be. The name Ahnu (pronounced “ah-new”) is derived from the Celtic goddess of well-being and balance, Anu. All of the names of Ambre Blends Essences (Ambre, Invoke, Solace, Unmasque and now Ahnu) have something to do with what is going on in my life when I create it. This one is perfect because it’s for everybody, it is universal.

You might notice that on the label of Ahnu Essence is a lotus flower. This is a symbol of purity, devotion, enlightenment, grace and rebirth. A lotus flower grows out of muck; through all the sludge and slime, this beautiful, brilliant, pure blossom grows and emerges. I look at this as a metaphor of life as we know it. We can make the best of our crummy environment and rise above it!

The violet label was also intentional, for it is the color of spirituality. Violet has the highest vibration on the visible spectrum. It is a color of enlightenment and imagination, getting us in touch with our deeper thoughts. Violet inspires unconditional and selfless love, it is devoid of ego and encourages sensitivity and passion. Violet expands our awareness, connecting us to a higher consciousness.

Returning to Our Roots

The emergence of Ahnu Essence represents a return to the clean earthly roots of Ambre. Ahnu is a balanced and transcendent aroma mixing the sweet, tenacious scents of tuberose and lotus flower with the warm soft notes of violet leaf, tobacco and champaca. Ahnu Essence is a fresh and suave natural fragrance which will simultaneously ground and enlighten you.

I like to describe the scent of Ahnu as an earthly rain. When it rains, the earth has cleansed itself. Ahnu is reminiscent of the fresh, earthly smell that happens when you walk outside on a spring day and it just rained. When a raindrop hits the earth and interacts with dirt, it comes back up into the air and releases what scientists call aerosols, which are what cause that fresh and almost sweet fragrance that you smell.

Ahnu Ingredients

Here are some of the natural ingredients you will find in Ahnu…

I am extremely excited about the launch of our fifth scent for both what it means and how it smells. The last time we launched a new scent was on April 21, 2011, and now Ambre Blends has grown to be much bigger than it was back then. As much as I have been feeling the pressure for this launch, the excitement is on a whole new level for us.

I’ve been looking forward to creating a new scent for quite some time, and I feel like this is it. I truly believe that we hit the nail on the head with how Ahnu smells, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone! We’re all yearning for a new beginning, and we’re all starting fresh together. I hope you enjoy Ahnu as much as we do!

-Ambre Crockett, Owner & Creator of Ambre Blends

**Ahnu will be available for purchase on Monday, May 22nd


Stay Fresh with Pure Olive Oil Soap

All soaps are not created equal! That’s why Ambre Blends created Pure Olive Oil Soap to leave your skin feeling silky and clean.

Our Pure Olive Oil Soap is a healthy, rejuvenating bar that is high in antioxidants and packed with natural ingredients that are nutritious for your skin. Although you might associate olive oil with cooking and the kitchen, it has been making its way to skincare and beauty products. And with its naturally nourishing properties, it’s easy to see why!

The Benefits of Pure Olive Oil Soap

Olive oil has been used as a moisturizer for centuries. It penetrates deep into the skin without clogging your pores. Since it is derived from nature, it is free of artificial ingredients. Olive oil helps to relieve your dry skin as well as assist in treating rashes, psoriasis, eczema and acne.

Another ingredient found in our soap is glycerin, a colorless, odorless humectant produced from vegetable oils. Glycerin moisturizes skin by drawing water from the air into the skin’s outer layer. It forms a protective layer locking in that moisture. If you have sensitive skin, glycerin will not irritate it or cause negative reactions like synthetic ingredients would.

To use Ambre Blends Olive Oil Soap, thoroughly work the soap in your hands to form a rich, full lather. Use on your body and face as part of your daily wash. Afterwards, your smooth and hydrated skin will emanate a sensual and alluring aroma of the essence of your choice!

Did you know you can also use our Pure Olive Oil Soap as a moisturizing shave bar? Create a silky lather upon which your razor’s harsh effects are mitigated and replaced with a hydrating, smooth and pleasurable shaving experience that won’t leave any residue behind.


Radiate Your Scent with an Ambre Blends Spritzer

For your body, home or anywhere you want to smell like your favorite Ambre Blends Essence, we have Ambre Blends Spritzers! The Spritzers are a fun, easy way to blend your body, fabrics and favorite possessions with our essences, empowering your natural fragrance into a unique and soothing aroma.

Ambre Blends Spritzers are very similar to Ambre Blends Oil Essences. We’ve taken the essences that you know and love and turned it into a fragrance spray that you can use all over, even on your pets. This natural fragrance spray comes in all five Ambre Blends Essences and can be used almost anywhere to radiate the scent of your choice.

Shake, Shake, Shake!

When using the Spritzer, always shake before you spray to ensure the product comes out as a mist. There’s no emulsifying agent in the spritzer which is what most perfumes and spritzers have in them to mix the scent, so by shaking the bottle you’re naturally providing an emulsifying agent.

How to Use

Once you’ve shaken the spritzer, spray it everywhere! Use it on your body, your hair, linens, rugs…anywhere! Spraying it in your hair is a great way to radiate the scent all day long. Spray it in while your hair is wet before your blow dry and your hair will hold the oil throughout the day. Avoid spraying on silk and rayon.

Ambre Blends Spritzers come in two sizes, 8 ounces and a travel size of 2 ounces (approved for air travel). The 8 ounce bottle has approximately 900 sprays in it.

Want to know some creative ways to use your Spritzer? Here are five ways you can use your Spritzer.


Ambre Blends Body Cream: Everything Yummy Your Skin Adores

Looking to add another Ambre Blends product to your arsenal? No matter what your skin type, you’ll love Ambre Blends Body Cream. This soft and supple cream is recommended by dermatologists for many common skin ailments. Use Ambre Blends Body Cream simply to hydrate your skin or to heal it from sunburns, eczema and other skin disorders.

What’s Inside

Our Body Cream is a gorgeous mix of ingredients with the added bonus of our five essences. At first, you will smell the raw, organic, healing ingredients, such as coconut oil, raw shea butter, sunflower seed oil and sweet almond oil. These ingredients are very strong and potent (raw and organic), but once rubbed and soaked into your skin, our essences come to the top to radiate. As always, our Body Cream is paraben-free so that you know you’re feeding your skin safe, nontoxic ingredients.

Although our essences are one of the main ingredients, you may not smell it out of the jar, simply because they are not synthetic scents. Available in all five essences, you’ll notice that the scent radiates off of your skin. We have found that the Body Cream is a great product to layer with any and all of the other Ambre Blends products. Most times, we just wear the body cream and get tons of compliments!

Ambre Blends Body Cream comes in two sizes, 8 oz or the 2 oz travel size (air travel approved). When you buy the 8 oz jar, you get over a 35% savings and you can use it to refill the travel jar. The 8 oz jars contain nearly 20 ml of oil essence inside!

Please keep in mind that because of the fresh, natural, and organic ingredients (and lack of synthetics, fillers, or preservatives) in our products, the Body Cream will expire after approximately three years. Keep it out of direct sunlight as UV can degrade the Body Cream more rapidly.

How to Apply

For best results apply after shower from neck to toe. You’ll notice that it glides on like silk and provides a great base to layer on other Ambre Blends products. For a power-packed skin smoothie, put some body cream into the palm of your hand, make a well in the middle and add two pumps of Ambre Blends Skin Tonic. Mix together and use on your body all over for protection and to seal the dermal layer in with moisture and nutrients. Watch this video to see how we mix the two products together.

We love the Body Cream, but don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about Ambre Blends Body Cream:

“This body cream is so hydrating for my skin. I can put it on in the morning and not worry about reapplying lotion for the rest of the day. It works well for layering with the other products for a longer lasting scent. I also love the fact that it comes in a tub which makes it easier to travel with. I will forever be a loyal Ambre Blends customer.” –Haleh, Louisiana

“This stuff feels like absolute SILK on your body! It makes me feel fabulous and it smells delightful! I feel so sexy and beautiful when I wear this lotion. It hydrates deeply, yet dries quickly and doesn’t feel oily on the skin. This will be your new favorite body lotion. A must buy!” –Sarah, New York

“I’ve been using the combination of body cream and skin tonic daily to help with the dryness from the Southern California sun…the body cream is very rich and really is a value – a little goes a long way.” –Christeen, California


Get Your Glow On

Get ready to GLOW! If you want your skin to look luminous without the glitter, we have the perfect product to add to your skincare routine. Get a subtle and radiant shimmer with Ambre Glow.

Ambre Glow is an illuminating moisturizer that not only is incredibly good for the skin but it also leaves a shimmer glow effect that looks amazing on all skin types. Ambre Glow radiates the aroma of Ambre Essence and can be worn in combination with all other Ambre Blends products.

We made Ambre Glow using the finest ingredients including:

What is Squalane?

You might be wondering about squalane and why we use it. Squalane is a natural ingredient derived from olives. It is an antioxidant-rich age-fighting emollient which occurs naturally in the lipidic layers of the skin. Squalane prevents moisture loss while restoring the skin’s suppleness and flexibility. Using squalane will lock moisture into your skin, help prevent fine lines and ease dry patches all while fighting free radicals. You can see why we love it for soft, healthy skin!

How to Wear Ambre Glow

There are so many ways to wear Ambre Glow, it’s all about your personal preference. We love to use Ambre Glow to highlight bone structure, whether on your face, collarbone, legs, shoulders…it’s up to you! Dab it around your eyes or use it as a highlighter for your cheek bones. It makes a great addition to your makeup bag for special occasions, a night out on the town, weddings or any time you want a little extra glow about you.

But you don’t have to ditch your other Ambre Blends products for Ambre Glow. We have some customers that mix Ambre Glow with the Body Cream and Skin Tonic, which makes for a triple power packed skin smoothie!

Ambre Glow comes in a 4 oz. jar and trust us when we say that a little goes a long way. If you’re looking for a subtle shimmer or a new highlighting tool, add Ambre Glow into your beauty routine!


Everything You Need to Know about Ambre Blends Skin Tonic

Not only do we love making you smell great with Ambre Blends Oil Essences, but our entire product line is made with a purpose behind it for your skin’s health. Ambre Blends products are made after we hand pick high-quality, natural ingredients that work together for your best skin ever.

Ambre Blends Skin Tonic

One product that is gaining popularity in our skincare line is the Ambre Blends Skin Tonic. Skin Tonic is a luxury body oil developed exclusively for the purpose of rejuvenating skin and giving your face and body a healthy glow. The combination of organic oils and our signature essences is designed to keep you looking healthy and vibrant while also radiating your favorite Ambre Blends scent.

With that being said, you will smell some of these nutrient oils right off the top and from the bottle. Remember that these are raw oils, which is what you will initially smell. It is not until those oils are absorbed into the skin that the Ambre Essence (Ambre, Invoke, Solace, Unmasque, or Ahnu) will have a chance to radiate its aroma throughout the day. We also have an essence-free version available for those with sensitive facial skin!

How to Apply

For best results, apply Ambre Blends Skin Tonic to your face and body after drying off from a bath or shower. Apply it to the face and body to allow your skin to absorb the product and soak up all of the benefits. Ambre Blends Skin Tonic will quickly penetrate deep into the skin, leaving no oily residue. Watch our short 15-second video about how to properly apply the skin tonic to your face and body.

Why Skin Tonic?

The purpose of this product is to feed your face and body with 17 organic and raw oils (listed below) with the added bonus of our Ambre Blends Essences which make up 1/4 of the bottle. We do not want to alter the smell of these 17 oils as they are in their purest form and are extremely nutrient in this state. These fortifying oils assist in hydration, anti-aging, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and cell rejuvenation.

Making the Switch to Natural Deodorant

If you haven’t already, it’s time to make the switch. There’s no need to sweat it, it’s an easy transition and we’ll walk you through it. What are we talking about? Ditching the antiperspirant and switching to natural deodorant.

Most people are scared to switch from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant because they’re scared of sweating. But remember, a little sweat never hurt anybody (sweating is a natural and necessary body process)! In fact, the reason that antiperspirants keep you from sweating is what is hurting you.

Here’s how antiperspirant works: aluminum clogs up your pores that would normally release perspiration, which causes your sweat to build up underneath blocked ducts in your skin. This also causes inflammation, bumps and bacteria that leads to body odor. Doesn’t sound very pleasant, does it? To make matters worse, those aluminum compounds in your antiperspirant are what cause the yellow stains in the armpits of your white shirts.

This isn’t even scratching the surface of all the harmful chemicals found in antiperspirant, including parabens, phthalates, silica, steareths and more, which have been linked to Alzheimer’s, cancer, skin irritation, reproductive disorders, developmental toxicity and muscle weakness, just to name a few.

After hearing all of that, what are you waiting for? Take your antiperspirants and deodorants and throw them in the trash. It’s time for a fresh start! When switching to a natural deodorant, your body might go through a short “detox” period (sometimes up to one month) in expelling the toxins from your body. You might have a strong body odor during this time, so make sure you are washing your skin to help battle the smell. You can help this detox process by exfoliating the skin under your arms and washing your armpits daily with soap (a natural option, like our pure olive oil soap) and water. After your body has gone through the detox, you’ll notice that the body odor is gone and you’ll be naturally smelling fresher.

With Ambre Blends Natural Deodorant, you want to apply and wait for the oil-based deodorant to seep in for a couple of minutes to prevent it from possibly rubbing off onto your shirt or other garments. We recommend starting off with the deodorant in Invoke, Solace, Ahnu, or Unmasque, as their essences are stronger and Ambre Essence is more delicate, especially if you are worried about covering the smell of body odor.

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Hold the deodorant up to your armpit for three seconds to let deodorant naturally warm up and soften before applying/swiping on.
  2. Swipe back and forth, five times at the most. We as a society use way too much deodorant in one application. We’re all guilty of it, we had to retrain our brains as well to know that we don’t need that much on at a time, even though we might think we do.
  3. Just apply to center of your armpit where hair growth naturally occurs, not on the outer pit area.
  4. Keep in mind, when you are switching from a antiperspirant to a natural deodorant, your body is not used to sweating out all the toxins, but all the same you need to get them out. Give it around 10-15 days for you to sweat all the toxins built up from your antiperspirant keeping them in your body. Usually excess sweating occurs and is more noticeable because you’re not used to sweating when using an antiperspirant. There could be some irritation associated with that which could be from detox, but most likely from over application (the baking soda can mess with your pH, causing redness).
  5. After continued use of our natural deodorant, you’ll notice less sweating. If you shave your underarms, please make sure your razor is replaced every few weeks. Dull razors hold bacteria and can cause irritation that you might assume is irritation from the natural deodorant.

Know what’s going on your skin! The ingredients in our natural deodorant include baking soda and arrowroot (deodorants), probiotics, coconut oil and grapefruit seed extract (anti-bacterials), aloe vera and shea butter (skin soothants) and Ambre Blends Oil Essence (scent). Our natural deodorant is 100% pure, all-natural and free of all toxins. These soothing ingredients will eliminate body odor while radiating your favorite Ambre Blends scent.


Discover the Art of Natural Fragrance

Unlike perfumes and colognes, there is an art to wearing natural fragrances. Ambre Blends Oil Essences are designed to complement your body’s natural chemistry so that every time you apply our products, your body emanates a soothing, long-lasting aroma unique to you. Our organic infusions are activated by your body’s warmth, uncovering a unique adventure every time you blend with our empowering essences.

Wearing, sharing and exploring Ambre Blends is easy, intuitive and a work of art. It is important to note these three essential steps to best wear and emanate the soothing, natural fragrances of Ambre Blends.

Apply. It can be difficult to smell the essence in Ambre Blends products while they are still in the packaging. To get a true sense of our fragrances, generously apply the product by rubbing it on to your forearms and other “hot spots” such as the nape of the neck and chest.

Radiate. Ambre Blends pure, natural fragrance will come alive once it blends with your body’s warmth and chemistry. Give the essence time to work with your body heat. Our fragrance will radiate after the product has had time to blend with you. There is no need to reapply, the essence will continue to radiate as you cool down and warm up throughout the day.

Time. Over time, like wine, your oil essence will get better. It is also important to remember that after repeated use of our natural fragrances, it is completely normal for your sense of smell to become accustomed to your unique Ambre Blends scent. Alternating between our signature fragrances can help prevent scent immunity over time. Through exploring each of our essences, those around you will still be able to recognize your individual scent and your sense of smell will remain uncompromised.

Mix our signature scents to discover your perfect fragrance that is uniquely yours! You can find out more about our four signature scents here.
