This name was chosen by Kim ‘Ohlara’ to represent her new perfumery range of products, developed to be used in daily self care rituals to support the sacred ‘Golden Temple’ within and assist balance of body, emotions mind and spirit.
For over 25 years Kim ‘Ohlara’ has worked as a healer and alchemist, from studies as a naturopath, herbalist, medical intuitive, masseuse, psychotherapist, psychic and spiritual healer and spiritual teacher to many.
Her alchemical formulations created from pure, wildcrafted and organic botanical ingredients have been produced for both her Australian, international clients and used exclusively in ‘Avoca Bouddi’ and ‘Pure Balance’ spiritual health spa for over 15 years.

What are true perfumes?
The word perfume is a derivation of the Latin “per fumum”, which means through smoke. This indicates that perfumes were originally used as incense in temples in ancient times to attract the gods and help achieve meditative states. Scents and natural perfumes have been around as long as humanity and have been used to deeply affect our psyche.
A true perfume is a complex combination of scents. When worn it combines with your personal odor to become a unique fragrance.
Ancient perfumery is also known as ‘natural perfumery,’ and is a luxury these days.
Most people think perfumery comes from France or Europe, the truth is, that perfumery began in Egypt, Arabia, and India thousands of years ago.
The ancient perfumers were educated in their art often called alchemists and held much knowledge of natural and herbal lore along with a deep spiritual connection to their gods.
Special rites and rituals were conducted in temples by priests and priestesses who were trained and held the wisdom of healing and spiritual arts in their community.
Perfumery was a truly sacred process and its art form has been kept secret and sacred for a select few who have been gifted with evolved sensory perception.
