"Through the Fire I Walk. From the Ashes I Rise"


How We Got Started


About Sudasana 
We see our products as agents & soul whisperer's.

“Sudasana –The Art of Tranquility” offers tools for self-nurturing in the form of Holistic Body Care & Soy Candles.  Our artisanal products are made in small batches with the intention to inspire you to take a breath, listen to YOUR inner guidance and come home to yourself.

We work with mineral rich Himalayan Crystal Salt blended with pure Essential Oils.  Our first product series was inspired by the 5 Elements (Fire, Earth, Water, Air, Aether). Essential Oil Blends support the body’s glands also referred to as  chakra centers.  
Our old fashioned apothecary bottles are made with part recycled glass and packaged in recycled paper boxes.  
Products are Free of Parabens, SLS and Propylene Glycol.
 

We see our products as agents & soul whisperer's. Essential Oils are the soul of the plant whispering into your ears reminding you of your dreams and aspirations along with a gentle reminder to take a breath and come home to yourself. 

The Name
 

Sudasana is named after Sudasana, the City of Healing in which the Medicine Buddha resides.   The city is depicted on what is considered a medical thanka painting from the 1600’s.  The mandala shows the city of Sudasana being surrounded by four mountains as well as medicinal plants and herbs.  
In the center the Buddha is holding out a flower in a mudra of sublime generosity. 

About the Founder 





I invite you to take a deep breath with me…give your Body, Mind & Soul permission to relax.

Welcome! 

My name is Esther, I love a good story as well as alchemy, mystery & things with soul. 
Whether that is a piece of 
jewelry passed down through generations or ancient scents & resins.  

Several years ago, in my early 30's, I found myself experiencing burnout. I started looking at my life, noticing I was out of balance.  At the same time I was introduced to Himalayan Crystal Salt and Essential Oils and learned that most skin & body care products contain potentially dangerous toxins.  On a mission to end Junk Food for the Skin I started Sudasana - The Art of Tranquility. 

What I was seeking was a sustainable product that would not only be beneficial for my health but something that would evoke a sense of beauty in my daily routine, something that would inspire me to create and commit to a daily self-care ritual.  
 
In my experience healing goes beyond the physical, it starts with the soul.  
That is why I have found it so important to create products that contain real, “made with love from Mama Nature” ingredients. Nature aids us in finding balance and settling within ourselves.

Essential Oils are the souls of plants that whisper into our ears reminding us of our dreams and hopes as they share their stories.  They share their life-force with us to help reignite & strengthen ours; to awaken to our purpose.

The Logo
 

Our logo was designed by award winning graphic designer Erika Maxwell.  Erika has been a Sudasana fan and I was thrilled when she took on the project since she understood what the line is all about. 
The sun is a symbol of life, strength, energy and self.  It is reminiscent of the rising of our inner sun, rebirth and spiritual growth.  Looking further you will notice that the sun is also a compass speaking to the journey we are all on of discovering the mysteries within.  The rays of the sun point to north, south, west & east.  Further the circle around the sun’s face resembles a medicine circle.  

Sun – Compass – Medicine Wheel.
