About Martina Steege

Born and raised in Germany, Martina came to the US in 1995 working as an executive assistant to the CEO of a computer distributor. She was always drawn to essential oils and their therapeutic properties, so one Christmas season she decided to make aromatherapy sugar scrubs for her husband’s clients, which turned out to be a big hit. Thus “MartiScrub” was born. Martina shifted gears and started researching and educating herself on aromatherapy as well as homeopathy and found that most of her household products (from cleaners to beauty care) had somewhat toxic ingredients and were certainly contributing to some health concerns. Martina then opened an Etsy shop in October 2015 and added more and more aromatherapy products that she had been formulating and testing on friends and family. Word got around that her creations were working well for people and animals alike (e.g. ailments such as skin rashes, acne, canine skin issues, baby’s sleeping problems, hormonal imbalances etc.). Martina wanted to learn more, specifically about safety, which led her to a certification program through “Aromahead Institute” that deepened her knowledge and gave her even more confidence.

Martina's definition of an aromatherapist is simple: Someone who is able to blend plant-based science with knowledge, experience and intuition, as she/he creates products that positively impact your senses! That’s what MartiScrub ® is all about!
