As an avid traveller and skin care enthusiast, it became difficult to find suitable skin- and hair care products in various Asian countries. This is when an idea sparked: I will make my own using all natural products! Countless hours of research led to a love for essential oils and natural products. Skin and hair thrives on natural oils. Mare & Itis started as a travel website to illustrate how easy it was to travel on a budget. I have since introduced a splash of all things aesthetic - lifestyle and design.
