Marco Ortega is a Brazilian artist, born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. In mid 80`s his curiosity took him on a long travel throughout Brazil. In this journey, through contact with different cultures of this vast and naturally rich country, he intensified and rediscovered his connection with nature and its healing powers, especially through herbs and Essential Oils.
Enchanted by Aromatherapy's thousands of years of history Marco Ortega was inspired by women who discretely hide a linen sachet moistened with essential oils between their breasts, and by merchants who used to carry precious essential oils in beautiful amphoras. Thus, he created his first personal diffuser shaped as little amphora. He has brought us, through his art, a practical and beautiful way to enjoy the benefits afforded by the art of Aromatherapy. Marco, together with his art assistant Lorenza and his administrative assistant Paula, meditate together every morning before starting their working daily routine.

Hi! Thank you for stoping by! I first came across Marco Ortega's diffusers in 2001 whilst taking a Aromatherapy class in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I totally fell in love with these delicate pieces of art. When I came to America, I brought some diffusers to give as gifts to my friends. Everybody loved them! In 2007 I decided it was about time to turn this hobby into a business! Please, take a look around and have fun! If you have any comments just drop me an email!
