Buddha Nose founder Amy Galper has always been an advocate for healthy living and smart consumption. An avid hiker, camper, and cook, Amy has always looked to the earth for solutions to her day-to-day life. Buddha Nose evolved out of her kitchen as she was inspired by her baking and cooking to create homemade beauty recipes for face/hair masks, scrubs, oils, and creams.
Amy is a Certified Aromatherapist and Shiatsu practitioner. With her wealth of knowledge and passion for essential oils, Amy writes a bi-monthly blog for Organic Spa Magazine that focuses on aromatherapy, beauty, and wellness. She is also the Founder of the New York Institute of Aromatherapy, NYC's first professional training and education center for Aromatherapy. In addition, Amy also founded the Yoga Beauty Bar, an interactive pop-up shop that educates and advocates for Conscious Beauty. Her pop-ups have been well received in both NYC and Santa Monica.
In her free time, Amy and her husband explore America's National Park system and escape to their off-the-grid cabin in the Catskills. The cabin is so off-the-grid, it's 2.5 hours from NYC, three miles down a dirt road, and through two trout streams where there is no electricity and no cell service.
Make Room in Your Life for "Om"
Om – A mantra and mystical Sanskrit sound of Hindu origin, thought to represent waking, dreams, and deep sleep, along with the following silence which symbolizes fulfillment.
The purpose of Buddha Nose is to heal you to your spiritual core. These days, everyone is focused on improving their life by modifying their diet, undergoing exercise regimens, and cutting out harmful vices. But there's not enough focus on maintaining our spiritual health, which is directly connected to our physical well-being. By tapping into a wealth of traditional medicinal knowledge, Buddha Nose creates body balms, salves, sprays, scrubs, and essential oils that heal on the spiritual and physical levels. As you relax and release the burdens of your day-to-day, you'll uplift your spirit and rejuvenate yourself thoroughly and completely. Find your "om" in our many products.
