Suzannah & Tina
The Suti collection comes from a healing background inspired
by Suzannah’s work as a complementary therapist
Suti is a partnership between sisters-in-law Suzannah Jenkins and Tina Steadman.
Suzannah, a highly qualified complementary medicine therapist has been working with Reiki, Homeopathy, Reflexology, Crystal Healing, Flower Essences and Aromatherapy for over 15 years in her treatment rooms. She was constantly asked by her clients for skincare preparations to aid in the healing process, and began making her own nourishing balms, tonics and facial oils for them to take home. At the same time explored working with Crystals in her formulations and facial treatments.
Her credentials include qualifications in Reiki, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Ayurvedic and Facial Rejuvenations and further training at the Lakeland College
Tina studied Visual Communication and worked in a design studio in Australia before moving to London. Her introduction to holistic therapies began during the pregnancy of her first child and she hasn’t looked back. Recently qualified Reiki practitioner she has also studied Australian Bush Flower Essences while on a sabbatical in 2009.
Suti launched in the Autumn of 2010 although the seed began a few years earlier when Suzannah first gave Tina some products to nurture and nourish her skin during pregnancy. Adoring the products and their unique energy, Tina knew they were special and their collaboration began.
There is a story behind each product and how it came to be, and we hope you enjoy using them as much as we have creating them.
Our unique approach...
We believe beauty is more than skin deep and choosing the finest, active, organic ingredients is just the beginning. It is our goal Suti products bring a greater sense of well-being to the user.
Researching our ingredients beyond their scientific benefits – tracing them through history and their link in Mythology, studying the doctrine of signatures with their physical qualities, appearance and purpose within nature, brings us a greater understanding of how it will perform both physically and energetically with the skin.
With each batch of products made we work with the subtle energy of Reiki, Meditation, the Full Moon, Clear Quartz Crystal and a unique set of 10 Coloured Crystal Stones that correlate with our 10 energy centres (chakras).
Physically Clear Quartz Crystal has a high silica content, which is fundamental to our skin. Energetically it works with the whole body, reputed to purify, amplify and send healing to where it is needed. Perfect for meditation and inducing calm.
We are drawn to the Moon and its feminine, powerful, yet gentle energy. The effects of its cycles are well known as we see throughout Mother Earth from the tides, to farming, to women’s cycles. Each skin cell has a cycle, beginning in the basal layer of the dermis closest to the source of nutrients from blood circulation and lymphatics, going through different phases like that of the moon, waxing and waning, fading away and revealing the new underneath lasting between 27-35 days.
Working with the Moon and it’s similar monthly cycle, the energy is harmonious. Our intention is to harness the Full Moon’s energy of light, regeneration and transformation by placing Clear Quartz Crystal under the Full Moon before incorporating within our production ceremony.
* Healing and it's meaning - The word 'heal' of ancient origin means 'holy' or 'whole' or 'hale and healthy'. There is a misconception that it means to 'cure'. When the person and healer let go of the need and desire to make healthy the deeper the healing - the making holy can begin.
