Story and Expertise
Dr. Christoph Streicher, founder of Amrita Aromatherapy, was mentioned by Jacques Palz of France, a world renowned authority on using essential oils for both healing and personal skin care. Studying also with a number of well-known Indian Ayurvedic physicians, Dr. Streicher learned the time-tested therapeutic use of essential oils for increasing vitality and balance. Ayurveda is the 5,000-year-old Vedic medical science that regards physiological balance as the basis of perfect health.
Dr. Streicher has a Master's Degree in Biochemistry from the University of Wüerzburg, and a Ph.D. in Physiology from Maharishi University of Management, in which he focused on the relationship of plant life to human consciousness. This unique combination enables him to critically evaluate the biochemistry of the oils and select oils that are the most suitable for our human physiology.
In the early 1980s, he studied with a number of well-known Indian Ayurvedic physicians and learned about the holistic healing paradigm of aromatherapy. Later on in the 80s, he was mentored by Jacques Paltz of France, a world-renowned authority on the use of essential oils for both healing and personal skin care. Dr. Streicher uses his deep knowledge of aromatherapy to carefully oversee the selection of each supplier. This close supervision by a world renowned aromatherapist ensures that only the highest quality products are produced at Amrita.
Dr. Streicher became aware that most essential oils on the market are in some way denatured. He envisioned Amrita to be a trustworthy source of nature's pure aromatherapy essential oils. Dr. Streicher upholds this vision each time he sources an essential oil.
Amrita carries an extensive line of high-quality, therapeutic-grade aromatherapy products. We import directly from growers and distillers all over the globe and supply these oils and aromatherapy products to the U.S. and international markets.
Amrita bases its sourcing of essential oils and other ingredients, as well as the principles of product formulation, on the holistic healing paradigm. In addition to organic farming, the evaluation of the holistic vibrational quality and scent of the ingredients is a core element in sourcing essential oils and other ingredients.
When formulating complex products, it is always Amrita's commitment to address a particular health issue within the context of the well-being of the whole mind-body of the consumer.
Only compatible ingredients that support each other's actions are blended together, so that a benefit to one area of health never causes an imbalance in another. And we never, ever use a single synthetic ingredient.
