It has taken her over two years, but Doris “DORISSIMA” Brugger has finally developed her innovative and exceptional spa line, DORISSIMA d1 – d7. This range of products is a fusion of absolute naturalness, spirituality, sensuality and pure luxury.

With an holistic approach to body, mind and soul, DORISSIMA d1 – d7 Body & Massage Oils, DORISSIMA d1 – d7 Beauty Packs and d1 – d7 Herbal Teas don’t just care. Theirs is an overall holistic effect promoted through the use of perfumes, aromas and colours in particular.

All the ingredients in the DORISSIMA d1 – d7 spa line are pure natural products: nourishing oils, natural aroma essences and natural colourings. This makes DORISSIMA one of the few providers of truly natural cosmetic products.

DORISSIMA d1 – d7 Body & Massage Oils are used in hotel spas, day spas and wellness resorts, but can also be used as “home spa” products teamed with harmonising DORISSIMA d1 – d1 teas and DORISSIMA d1 – d7 beauty packs.

The sensual and holistic aspects and effects of the DORISSIMA d1 – d7 line:

The d1 – d7 oils are based on natural oils such as jojoba oil, avocado oil, almond oil and sunflower oil.

Colour is energy. It is absorbed into the body through the eyes, the skin and the energy centres (chakra). Colour affects body, mind and soul. Each of the seven chakra colours has its own character, embodies a different aspect of life and has a very special effect on the psyche and soul.

The DORISSIMA d1 – d7 Body & Massage Oils were developed in line with these seven colours and individually harmonised with the corresponding healing essential oils for body, mind and soul. Only natural colourings of plant origin are used.

Perfumes and fragrances play an important role in sensory perception and therefore our health. Smells arouse associations and emotions, both positive and negative. Fragrances can be used to control how we feel: Essential oils affect the brain through the olfactory receptors. The olfactory or “smell” brain then stimulates neighbouring brain centres that produce hormones and control emotions.

In addition to their role in sensory perception, aromas also have healing properties. Fragrance essences have always been used as a remedy in natural medicine. Inhaling fragrances was the original therapy used in natural medicine. Nowadays we know that the ingredients are also effective when taken in through the skin.

The natural aroma essences used in DORISSIMA d1 – d7 Body & Massage Oils (aromas such as mandarin, neroli, fennel, aniseed, ginger, ylang ylang, frankincense, vanilla and many more) stimulate and support the immune system. Not only that but they can also have a harmonising, stimulating, confidence boosting or calming effect. So you will always find the right “elixir” for every individual state of mind among the d1 – d7 Body & Massage Oils by DORISSIMA.

Essential oils have a direct effect and can be used for physical healing. They contain innumerable active ingredients that can help combat bacteria, fungi and even viruses. Some essential oils have antibiotic properties.

Perfume concentrates aren’t just made using flowers such as roses. Essential oil essences can also be extracted from various woods and fruits. Many plants and plant parts roots, stems or flowers contain essential oils where they act as hormones, regulators and catalysts. Hundreds of pounds of plant material are often needed for just one pound of essential oil. That’s why the truly essential oils used in DORISSIMA products are particularly precious. Only 100 per cent pure, certified essential oils are used in DORISSIMA d1 – d7 Body & Massage Oils.
