At Glow Essentials, we’re all about wellness & naturally radiant beauty. Our goal is to provide products that create balance & an overall sense of well-being, so that you can be beautifully balanced & show your inner glow.
It is our vision to Nourish, Uplift and Bring Beauty into your daily wellness routine.
We use premium, organic botanicals, and we source our ingredients from across the globe, to bring the highest level of active nutrients directly to your skin & body. We choose to use natural ingredients in our wellness & skincare products that are ideally suited to nourish, uplift, enhance, rejuvenate, balance and support healthy, glowing, radiance. We are committed to using organic or wildcrafted, ethically & sustainably harvested ingredients whenever possible.
These are a few of our ingredients.
products with integrity
At Glow Essentials, we don’t believe in marketing hype, we value truth. Many of the ingredients that are used in personal care products, even those advertising themselves as “clinical” or “natural”, are not really good for us at all. In fact, in the United States, many of the chemical ingredients used in our personal care products have never even been tested for safety. The average woman in America applies over 100 chemicals to her body as she gets ready every day, adding to her toxic load without even realizing it. It's important to know what we are feeding our skin, because what goes on the body can end up in the body. Caring for our skin should be an enjoyable experience that does not compromise our health in any way. Our organic botanical skincare is pure, safe and effective. It smells amazing, thanks to our premium aroma-therapeutic oils, and it works amazingly well!
It is our mission to bring the beauty and intelligence of nature to
everyday wellness & skincare in an effective and uplifting way.
Having safe & effective personal care products is something that should be accessible to most people. For that reason, we price our products fairly. We focus on putting great quality ingredients in the bottle, because that is what our customers want. We make products with integrity. Our active ingredients are present in a concentration that achieves results, not just so we can feature them on the label. We avoid using a lot of marketing hype, because that is usually just a ploy to get you to pay more. We know that our products deliver results, and we are proud of our affordable price tag.
Our botanical skincare incorporates herbs & herbal extracts, essential oils, flower essences and plant oils that all offer holistic benefits. We hand make our products with love in our small batch apothecary. We are herbalists, aromatherapists and flower essence practitioners that are passionate about elevating the holistic skincare experience and making products that are safe AND effective.
When we use all natural products with pure, premium botanical ingredients, we are able to benefit from the many healing properties of plants. In fact, even though herbalism has been practiced since the beginnings of time, modern research is showing us that when it comes to skincare, many natural botanicals are safe, skin nourishing and wonderfully effective thanks to their wealth of beneficial properties. As we become increasingly aware of the impacts a modern lifestyle has on our health and our skin, more and more of us are turning to nature to restore balance. Natural foods, natural remedies, natural skincare are all being sought after for their incredible healing benefits. Plants have been our allies since the beginnings of time, and employing them correctly can not only bring about healing, but can vastly enhance the natural radiance and beauty of our skin. At Glow Essentials, we employ many botanical allies that are ideally suited to restore, rejuvenate, nourish, balance and support the skin, and we believe that healthy skin is beautiful skin.
we respect the beauty & intelligence of nature.
Aromatherapy is an incredibly effective healing art and science that utilizes concentrated plant extracts in the form of essentials oils, botanical oils, and hydrosols (aromatic floral waters) to restore inner harmony and balance. Each plant has an individual chemistry with therapeutic properties that are delivered to us in a highly concentrated form (1000 lbs of Neroli blossoms yield 1 lb of oil) when they are distilled into essential oils. The distillation process literally captures the essence, or life force, of the plant. So it is not just the pleasant fragrance that brings us benefit, but also a rich complexity of healing elements. Not only do essential oils provide biochemical, cellular and physical benefits, but also emotional, intellectual, spiritual and aesthetic benefits. The aromatic molecules can improve mood, concentration & sleep, as well as health & well-being. It is for this reason that essential oils can have profound effects on our body, mind and spirit. And while many companies choose to isolate individual parts of these powerful plant compounds, we prefer the synergistic benefits available to us in the whole and complete oil. Our pure, premium aroma-therapeutic oils are of the highest quality and deliver great results.
flower essences in skincare (aka: flower power)
Flower Essences are floral sun infusions that are used to subtly shift us back into balance. If you've ever been fortunate enough to receive a fresh bouquet of flowers, or if you have your own garden, you probably know that seeing or smelling beautiful flowers can bring tremendous joy to your day. Having a lovely bouquet can transform a space, infusing it with beauty and joy. Flowers are symbolic and have been used for centuries to express emotion. Flower essences work for us in much the same way. We all experience shifts in our mood and our energy, sometimes subtle and sometimes more obvious. For example, we may feel worn out or discouraged after a series of long, difficult days. Over time,we may begin to notice that we have slowly shifted away from our desired state, and we wish to regain a sense of joy, inner harmony and balance. We may want to feel less stuck or more adaptive, less impatience or more acceptance. Flower essences work with our bodies on an energetic level to release unwanted resistance and restore harmony. Using flower essences in our every day skincare products infuses the self care experience with positive, radiant energy.

a little more about us
Hello! I'm Christina Scott, the owner & product formulator for glow essentials. As an herbalist, aromatherapist and flower essence practitioner I am inspired by beautiful botanicals. I've always been passionate about wellness and in 2011, I began formulating natural skincare products for myself and my family. I wanted to eliminate as many toxic products from our lives as possible, and as I searched for safe, effective and affordable skincare options, I discovered they didn't really exist. So, I began working on formulating my own. I studied cosmetic formulation, aromatherapy, herbalism and flower essences. I have been honored to train under some of the best teachers in the country, masters of their craft. In 2016, I set out to create something beautiful with glow essentials, because I want to infuse the daily self-care experience with positive, radiant energy. I am very grateful to be able to do what I love, and that I get to share my passion with others.
I love spending time in nature, going on plant walks and hiking, especially in Sedona. I also enjoy reading, traveling, photography, cooking, gardening and spending time with my family. I live with my husband, 3 children and my dog, Rogue, in Arizona. The beach is our happy place, and here are a few pictures of my family & I enjoying our time near the ocean.
