Collection of skin care and body care preparations from wildcrafted healing herbs from the Western Galilee. Includes: Soaps, salves, balms, oil infusions, tinctures and more.
Aqua Mirabillis Collection of fragrant eaux is inspired by the Medieval "Miracle Waters"-  the first alcohol-based perfumes in Europe. Citrus peels, along with astringent herbs, were tinctured into "Aqua Vitae" ("Water of Life" meaning Alcohol) and were used both internally as medicine, and externally as disinfectant, for relieving sore muscles or simply as a substitute for bathing. Inspired by these antique practice and the abundance of healing plants in the Mediterranean wilderness surrounding the new studio in Clil, the Aqua Mirabillis Collection was born. These are perfumes for external use only, featuring ingredients rarely found in perfumery, which Ayala Moriel grows, harvests, forages and tinctures all by hand in the traditional old ways. Ingredients such as mastica, varthemia, vitex, wild oregano, sage, mint and more find their way into these fine fragrances that create a sense of well-being and connection to the Earth.

Arabian-inspired luxury incense in which precious woods (typically agarwood) are soaked in Mukhallat - a melange of attars (essential oils) such as rose, saffron, musk, orange blossom, etc. 

Bakhoor incense can be burnt on charcoal to release fragrant smoke meant for perfuming one's robes, hair and even stationary. But it is best to enjoy this precious incense using an incense heater, which is not only longer lived, but also will show the multilayered nuances of both the perfume and the precious wood that was soaked with it.

Originated in Japan in the 19th Century, incense cones are the easiest and most low-maintenance to burn. Our incense cones are hand-shaped, and have a thick enough base to make them stand on their own. That makes them very easily portable and enables them to burn on any heat and fire proof surface, without the need for any special tools or dishes. You can even burn them outdoors on the ground. 

Ayala Moriel makes two types of incense cones: Smudging Incense Cones, which are primarily made from herbs, with focus on a  single element that is  traditionally using fro smudging ceremonies and produces a similar scent for a continuous 10-15 minutes; as well as more sophisticated incense creations, as offered with our incense sticks and Agarbatti, which are simply a different shape, but produce more smoke (as cones are much thicker than sticks). These cones are a perfect solution for when you're traveling, or for beginner incense afficianado, as it does not require any special equipment to burn. 

To use incense cones: Place the cone on its base, so that it stands straight on a heat-proof surface. You may use a designated vessel, or any heat-proof container that you don't mind getting a burn-mark (the cone will leave a circle of the burnt plant matter and some ash ones its been exhausted). A bowl filled with sand or earth, or a coin placed on a ceramic tile or plate will do. 

Light the cone with a match or a lighter, and blow it off to allow the ember to slowly progress down the cone. Enjoy! 

At Ayala Moriel we produce two traditional incense sticks: Masala or Dhoop Sticks (which are coreless), and Agarbatti (Incense Sticks with Bamboo Core). 
The core gives the incense stick durability during transport, and also a very accessible way to hold it upright wherever it may be required. Because of its unique aromatic makeup, Agarbatti tends to have a thick and lingering smoke, and also is slow to burn. You may even find that you'd like to put it out before it gets consumed on its own. 

For those who prefer the purest incense (without any hint of the bamboo core), and have the appropriate ware, we recommend the cordless sticks. These are the most sophisticated incense blends are offered in this format. This incense shape requires a special vessel with the correct size hole to hold the stick in place, as well as receive its ashes. The most refined way to enjoy this type of incense, to the very last bit (which usually gets stuck and unburnt if placing it upright in a hole), is placing it horizontally inside a designated kodoh cup or in a bowl filled with fine ash. This ensure the stick burns in its entirety.

Another thing to keep in mind for this sticks, is that they break more easily. This is an advantage of course when wanting to portion them out and make them fit horizontally into any ash vessel. Another neat thing about incense sticks, is that they may be used for measuring time. They were used in such manners for many purposes, from telling time in general, with sophisticated incense that would change scent at certain time intervals. A practice we still use today is to frame a meditation practice with a certain scent that lasts a certain amount of time (most incense sticks burn from 20-60min) . What makes them perfect for meditation, is that they can be left alone to burn, being "low maintenance" during burning time; and also once the scent is over, one knows it's time to bring the meditation to a close. 

Considered the first perfume created by mankind, kyphi is an ancient incense, medicine and perfume made from sixteen distinctive aromatics combined together in an elaborate process that produces a rich, luxurious and thick smoke. It was burnt in Egyptian temples in the evenings, as a preparation for the dreamwork, and when was also ingested as medicine administered by the priests. It also had more mundane use in homes as a personal fragrance, and to burn in the evening to banish the worries of the day before going to sleep. 

Ayala Moriel kyphi offerings range from traditional kyphi to modern interoperation using local botanicals or aromatics from other traditions, using the same technique, and each material is hand-pounded in a stone mortar and pestle. The results are singular, as no two kyphi batches are ever identical even when the exact same recipe is used and carefully followed. Each kyphi represents a moment of inspiration in time, when it was prepared with much love and attention to each plant and each step in the process. 

The culmination of the perfumer's artistic expression is found in Ayala Moriel's Liquid Poetry collection. Each "poem" is written with the finest ingredients, woven into a tapestry of fluid storytelling. Some of the most exquisite and rare raw materials were chosen, for example: agarwdood (oud), precious flower absolutes in copious amounts (tuberose, champaca, boronia, lotus, orris butter, osmanthus, to name a few) and beach-harvested ambergris. So not surprisingly,, these are among the most expensive perfumes among the olfactory artist's creations. Liquid Poetry is an olfactory wearable art, with each perfumed story unfolding on your skin with a sweet whisper. 

Neri-koh means "kneaded incense", and contains honey and dried fruits, which add an inherent sweetness to them. It is believed that originally, these sweeteners were used to sugarcoat the bitter spices and herbs before ingesting them, as a medicinal preparation (before the invention of capsules, softgel and pills). An incense "dough" of spices, woods and resins is prepared, with honey and dried plums or apricots to bind them together. They are rolled into capsule-sized pellets, and aged underground for a minimum of six months. Nerikoh is traditionally enjoyed in autumn during Cha-Doh - the Japanese tea ceremony. Just like the slivers of woods enjoyed in Koh-Doh, Nerikoh is placed on the heated micah plate. Modern incense enthusiasts both in Japan and abroad also warm it on an incense heater - either electric or over a tea light candle. Pinch a little off the nerikoh ball and that would last you for hours to scent a room. If the room is larger, you may use half or a whole nerikoh pellet. It is extremely efficient and a most wonderful way to cherish the precious materials that are put into these creations, as some of these contain jin-koh (AKA oud or agarwood). 

New perfumes and seasonal offerings, available in limited quantities only, and for a short period of time (between 1-4 months, or while quantities last).

A rare opportunity to study with Ayala Moriel - a master and world-leader of modern Natural Perfumery - and truly immerse yourself in the worlds of incense and perfume from the comfort of your own home.  

This unique program uses multiple learning and teaching modalities and offers support for distant learning, enabling you to fit the perfume school experience into your personal schedule with more flexibility and ease. In addition to written course materials and exercises that are the same as you would experience in person at the week-long intensive masterclasses at Ayala Moriel's studio, you will have access to: Weekly zoom classes (that are also recorded), instructional videos (for some of the classes - this component of the program is still in development), online support group for students where you can post questions on assignments and share your accomplishments and process (membership in those groups extends beyond the duration of the course, so you can get to meet new alumni from all over the world, and share the knowledge you've gained). 

Another advantage of this program is that it is slower paced, allowing time for the student to digest and integrate the materials learned, as well as compose and let the perfumes mature and develop from session to session. 

Study at your own pace and space with this unique program tailored to self-study, that will guide you through the course's textbook, "Foundation of Natural Perfumery" (purchase the book separately). This program is more flexible, as it allows you to choose which modules to study in person at the studio, and which ones to study remotely. 

This session covers studying the raw materials, perfume structure, how to blend a formula, how to write a formula, building accords and creating unguent and solid perfumes, and basic Opulent formulation in an alcohol base.

Featured workshops: Incense Making Workshop (Indian-style incense cones or Ancient Egyptian Kyphi). 

Correspondence Courses Schedule and Structure:
Most of the courses run for 12 weeks (3 months), with weekly sessions on Zoom at regular times. Each session runs for 1.5hrs, with time for olfactive studies, lecture and Q&A for students to address problem-solving, feedback for assignments, etc.  
 
The fee includes all aspects of participation, except for the raw materials. These must be purchased separately (you will receive a list of materials once you've registered to the course). If you require assistance with sourcing, contact us for a customized essences kit (available for students only). 
  

While you can register for the correspondence courses anytime, participation in the live classes is available only at specific dates and times. It is recommended to register well in advance so you have time to get set up with all the materials, and can benefit fully from the live classes.

Alternatively, you can study and progress at your own pace and watch only the recordings (if you're unable to attend the live class time).

Smudging is a ceremonial practice, that technically involves a direct burning of a single plant. The most primordial way of enjoying aromatics, is that of simply lighting them afire which in turn will release a thick, aromatic smoke. The most ancient way of doing this is by using a single raw aromatic, that is on its own combustible. It is, essentially, like burning a little fire (controlled and contained), of either a bundle of dried herbs, or a chunk of wood. This can be done either ceremonially, or for fumigation purposes (for example, as an insect repellent). 

The most known culture to use this technique to this day are the First Nations of North America: in their smudging ceremonies, local botanicals such sage, sagebrush, cedar leaf, western red cedar, and sweetgrass are used for clearing a space and preparing it for a ritual, to cleanse the aura of a person, and for healing. A similar tradition and technique is used in Central America with Palo Santo chips. But these are not the only cultures that use this technique for multiple healing, ceremonial and cleansing purposes. 

Because these plants are only partially combustible, it is best to use a feather or a fan during the burning, to aerate the incense and continue its burn. This method is especially suitable for open spaces and the outdoors, where the wind can also help continue the burn. Additionally, the smoke can be quite strong and leave a scorched after-smell, which does not function as an "environmental scent" per se; rather they create an atmosphere of healing with the Earth's gifts and medicines, creating an overall sense of well-being.  

In our Smudging collection, we've included not only herbal smudging wands, bound together by a dried leaf that Ayala weaves around the wand; but also some of our herbal incense cones, which can be used for fumigating or cleansing a space.

Inspired by the fleeting beauty a blooming flower, each perfume dives into the depths of the flower's expression. Each soliflore in the collection invites the wearer to explore a relationship with the flower, its history, cultural and emotional significance.
