A very special new blend inspired by the philosophy of kintsugi.
The beauty of the delicate, muted floral Rose Geranium. The strength and subtle sweetness of Cedarwood Atlas. The bright and joyful optimism of Lemon. The soothing and meditative grounding of Frankincense.

A crisp, clean and earthy blend. Smells like the bush on a rainy day.
Cedarwood Atlas (Cedrus atlantica) brings a warm, sweet, balsamic-camphoraceous woodsy comfort to this blend. Peppermint (Mentha piperita) stimulates, invigorates and clears out any fog with its fresh and bright herby-menthol aroma. Lemon (Citrus limon) is consistently fresh and citrusy. Feels bright, happy, energetic, optimistic and refreshing and offers comfort and hope. Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata) brings a strong and fresh camphoraceous aroma that clears and cleanses the air - and the mind.
Ground combines top notes of Lemon and Spearmint, middle notes of Fennel Sweet and Rosemary and deeper notes of Clary Sage and Vetiver - to help you feel calm, grounded and at home.

THE SECOND SALON
GET ITS NAME?
This business has always been about giving beautiful humans a cushion. A comfort. A safe place to land. Supporting people to create soft and calming spaces of their own.
It’s a self-care of sorts. While being conscious of the way this phrase is oftentimes used out of context.
I used to use the phrase “self-care” a lot more than I do now. I suppose I feel like it gets thrown around with little regard for the nuance that a conversation about self-care requires.
The self-care I talk about is clearly the surface level stuff. I hope that saying that doesn’t diminish its importance. What I’m trying to do is acknowledge life and its structures can be complex and difficult, and obviously there’s no way diffusing some essential oils will have an impact on some of the big things.
But - there are self-care-like things we can do that will generally make us feel better. Going for a massage, getting a facial, going to a workshop. While beneficial, these things take time to plan, attend, and can be expensive.
SECOND IS THE NEXT OPTION
Creating your own spaces is more accessible. Spaces that are already yours, that are ready when you are.
SALON MEANS ROOM
The Second Salon acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of country throughout Australia and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, waters and community.
Respects are paid to the people, the cultures and the elders past, present and emerging.
