How does it feel and my thoughts: This oil feels incredibly light and delicate as you apply it on your skin. It is as if it is pure gold in bottle, well that is the colour of it. I love to hold my hands over my eyes and nose after applying and inhaling the gorgeous floral aroma. Warning: this stuff could possibly be addictive. You will feel like you are a fairy that has been mystically teleported to the forests of Fern Gully after applying. It does not leave an oily residue and soaks into your skin quickly. Absolutely stunning product. I’M.IN.LOVE.

Synthesis comes from a mystical place in the rainforests of Eastern Australia, surrounded by the remnants of an ancient volcano, where sunlight first touches Australia each day.
Our picturesque village, Tyalgum, in the Byron Bay hinterlands, is watched over by the awe-inspiring majesty of Mt. Warning, also known as “The Cloud Catcher”. The rainforest surrounding this peak is a UNESCO World Heritage national park. Rivers meander through the rolling green fertile hills of the surrounding valleys, nurturing plants, wildlife and humans. The profusion of life is a constant inspiration for us to promote sustainability, harmony and wellbeing from universal energy and nature.
We call our Organic Facilities ‘Ray of Sunshine’ – located on a wondrous property that grows an abundant variety of native and exotic flowering plants and trees. It is a heaven scent paradise with Roses, Lavender, Lilies, Camelia, Frangipani, Magnolia trees and fragrant herbs that flourish alongside domestic animals and wildlife.
It is a vision of balance and harmony, a place to reflect and be restored and the source of inspiration for many of our products.
