In our laboratories, we use vegetable oils, natural extracts and essential oils, permitting us to create pure products; effective and with a great quantity of natural active ingredients.

Within the world of natural cosmetics, aromatherapy can be practiced in various forms, amongst them, the most popular practice is the direct application on to the skin. The essential oils need a base oil that is 100% pure vegetable oil in order to profoundly penetrate the epidermis and enter into the blood’s circulation, spreading their sedating, invigorating, relaxing and stimulating qualities throughout our body. The Living Stone is one of the best natural cosmetic shops in Barcelona, specializing in the sale of essential and vegetable oils, prepared by combining vegetable oils such as almond oil, ecological sunflower seed oil, or soja oil with essential oils such as lavender, orange, lemon, rosemary, incense, bergamot, (petit-grain) or oriental wood.
The friction of a massage, distributes the oil, provoking heat in the areas being treated and aiding their absorption by the skin, thus increasing the effect of the massage and the intrinsic properties of the oils that are employed, transporting us to a state of incomparable relaxation and well-being.
Our body oils for massages can also be displayed, in its completely artisan form, as unique decorative items. Each bottle contains natural flowers, contributing to the beauty of the product. Similarly, each flask is sealed with natural products such as cork, raffia or wood and at no point in its production does the natural oil come into contact with chemical or synthetic substances.
Our symbol is an ammonite, the remains of a living organism conserved by fossilization. A stone, that in another time was a living organism, symbolizes for us the permanence of the natural despite the passing of time and the transformations that have occurred. The ultimate essence of nature, our symbol carries the message that we wish to transmit with our natural products; simplicity, natural beauty and purity.
