I just had my first organic sugaring experience, so for something different, I'll tell you about it.

Organic Hand Sugaring is virtually unheard of in NZ - there is only one current practitioner, who just happens to be in my neighbourhood - Lower Hutt!

It is an ancient Middle Eastern method of hair removal that has been updated to the 21st century. As a sign of purity and cleanliness, a Middle Eastern bride-to-be would have all her body hair removed and and organic hand sugaring was the most effective way fo achieving this with the least amount of discomfort (although like waxing of course there is some discomfort).

Organic Hand Sugaring definitely leaves the skin feeling softer and silkier as the sugar paste exfoliates at the same time. It is made from all natural ingredients - lemon juice, sugar and water. Jane (who runs her home-based practice in Lower Hutt) also uses special corn-starch powder (not talcum) before applying the paste. All her soaps and lotions are SLS free. Jane who has international qualifications in Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Organic Sugaring also practices reflexology and aromatherapy massage at her Maungaraki (Lower Hutt) home. No web site. Phone 04 566 9876 for enquiries.
