Get To Know Our Awapuhi Seaberry Products
Breathe in the sweet, exotic nectar of our Awapuhi Seaberry products, a tropical and lively fusion created from pure essential oils to offer you so many more whole body benefits than scent alone.
Awapuhi, the leading scent in this duo, is a type of tropical ginger found in the South Pacific islands. It enjoys a mild and sunshiny climate, filling our Awapuhi Seaberry products with warm rays. Awapuhi flowers are very fragrant with warm and spicy soul-lifting notes. They produce a dark red liquid that is gathered by the petal cone, frequently used in traditional island body care.
Seaberries, or Sea Buckthorn as they’re sometimes known, grow on a hardy shrub primarily found nestled between sand dunes near the ocean. These beach-loving berries bring our Awapuhi Seaberry products a tart aftertone, mixed with subtly salty ozonic marine notes. The medicinal uses for the Seaberry date back thousands of years to native medicine where the superfood berry was squeezed into elixir tinctures to promote overall wellness and radiance.
Our blend of these two botanical extracts in our Awapuhi Seaberry products brings you the perfectly bright balance of floral and fruity!

A study by The National Center for Biotechnology Information outlines how Hedychium Coronarium (The INCI name for Awapuhi) has shown to “possess antibacterial, antifungal and antitumor activities”. They also highlight the value of Awapuhi by explaining that “Hedychium genus is undoubtedly proven to be a valuable group of medicinal plants, being present in several folk medicines around the world where it is known to treat allergies, cancer, diabetes, inflammation, rheumatism and skin problems, as well as being also used as an analgesic, antimicrobial, anti-helminthic, antioxidant and insect repellent.” The same results were found throughout several studies which were carried out in order to explore the Hedychium species and their reported biological effects of their essential oils, extracts and isolated compounds.
Alina Petre, MS, RD (NL) writes an evidence based article on Healthline exploring the benefits of Hippophae rhamnoides (the INCI name for Seaberry). She states that “the oil may help stimulate skin regeneration, helping wounds heal more quickly” and can “reduce inflammation following UV exposure, protecting skin against sun damage”. She explains that “researchers believe that both of these effects may stem from seaberry’s omega-7 and omega-3 fat content”. In addition to this she also speaks to Seaberry’s moisturizing properties summarizing that it can also “promote elasticity and protect against dryness.”
Why We Use Essential Oils To Create Our Awapuhi Seaberry Products
We utilize nature’s apothecary to create our aromas, choosing only organic and pure essential oils and botanicals over synthetic fragrances. Synthetic fragrances are one of the top toxic body care ingredients to avoid. Ambiguous terms, such as perfume, fragrance or parfum, are allowed to contain up to 200 undisclosed sub-ingredients, potentially hiding dangerous and harsh chemicals that can cause negative side effects and long term health issues. On top of this, essential oils allow you to meet your own unique body care goals by offering so many acute holistic benefits.
Our Awapuhi Seaberry products contain a winning combination of natural, plant-powered benefits. The importance of the connection between plants and their whole body benefits was also summarized by NCBI stating that “since the beginning of the history of mankind there was always a connection between plants and human health, as they were used as food and medicines. The traditional herbal medicine outlined the foundations from which modern medicine developed and is still largely practiced around the world, particularly in Asian and developing countries. This popular knowledge, also known as folk medicine, gives a good indication to scientists looking for sources of new compounds with pharmaceutical potential. Thus, medicinal plants and their derived natural compounds have become an increasing topic of investigation and interest.”
