Why Lomarra?

Vanessa was born in Scotland to two very patriotic Scottish parents. Lomarra, is a Scottish Gaelic word meaning 'bare or naked' as this is what we are all about. We are all about getting back to basics and only using ingredients in our products that are truly necessary. You don’t need the hard to pronounce ingredients to achieve a hygienic home. Natural cleaning still uses science to get things clean. Studies have shown that cleaning a surface with a vinegar and essential oil mixture actually does a better job of cleaning viruses and bacteria than bleach. The unique combination of essential oils we use in all our Lomarra products do all the work for you without compromising your health. We are also about making products in small batches. This allows us not to have to use preservatives or any other chemicals that may affect you or your family. Our products work and last because of the way they are formulated.

 

Why Australian essential oils?

Lomarra is about reconnecting to our Australian bush. Australia is gifted with unique and powerful essential oils that are grown sustainably and without the use of any chemicals. We have chosen to use only Australian essential oils in our products for this reason. Many overseas essential oils are far from sustainably produced. The history of Australian essential oils starts thousands of years ago. Indigenous people across all parts of Australia used hundreds of native Australian plants for a variety of medicinal uses. Most of the time, it was the essential oils in those plants they were benefiting from. Australian plants were used for colds, cuts, sores, sore or swollen muscles, skin complaints and repelling insects. 

Why essential oils?

Smelling certain essential oils can change the way you feel almost instantly. The individual properties of the oils used in each Lomarra blend start to take effect within seconds and change the way you feel. It is well documented that smells, natural or not, affect our brain and body chemistry. This is why the sprays we use around our homes on a daily basis are so important to get right. Chemicals used in many cleaning products are known to disrupt our hormones, cause birth defects, alter moods, cause eczema and asthma and many have been linked to cancer. This is not OK! Instead what if your cleaning spray could clear a runny nose? Or your bathroom spray could reduce your blood pressure and make you feel calm? In fact, research has shown that everything from nausea, stress, insomnia, to anxiety disorders, dementia symptoms and high blood pressure can be positively affected by inhaling airborne essential oils. Lomarra products aim to make you feel happy and energised rather than intoxicated and sick. Switching to non-toxic versions of your cleaning sprays can have enormous health benefits for you and your family.
