Our Story

Enessa was founded by Michelle Ornstein more than 25 years ago while she was on a quest to find the answer on how to achieve beautiful skin naturally. After acquiring her esthetician license and becoming a certified aromatherapist, Michelle opened up Enessa Wellness Spa while creating the Enessa skin care line.

The spa was located in West Hollywood on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Michelle catered to many Hollywood celebrities, who came in to get pampered by all-natural treatments and products. Enessa's products have been chosen for gift baskets at numerous events such as the Emmys. Our products have been used by many celebrities, Hollywood make-up artists throughout the years and featured on TV shows.

As the demand for our product line continued to grow, Michelle decided to close the chapter on the spa and dedicate her full time to formulating new products and focus on her true passion which was the growth of Enessa’s product line. 

Enessa offers products that reduce the negative effects of the environment upon the skin, and we offer them with organic ingredients, simple ingredients and effective ingredients. Our research has shown that while an ingredient such as Argan oil or Rose essential oil may be simple, the dynamics in which they interact and effect the skin both at the surface and internally is complex and profound. 

Our story may be expanding, the number of products that we offer is increasing, but our approach toward the future is always with a vision of our past. 

It can be summed up best that what keeps us going is the journey of life. We never stop losing our desire to gain new knowledge. We are never satisfied with a single formulation that it will be the end all solution. We know that there will be something unknown in our future that drives us to ask new questions and strive for new answers. 

We believe in the science of nature and the power of knowledge.


We believe that by sourcing organic, natural, and wild-crafted ingredients from sustainable and fair-trade sources, and developing relations directly with growers who follow our like-minded principles, the results will show up as products with superior efficacy.


We are driven by our passion to create the purest, most effective skin care products which allow you to achieve balance, beauty and optimum skin health. We incorporate the highest quality of organic and wild essential oils, bio-actives, and plant extracts available, exemplifying Enessa’s dedication to purity.


Taking advantage of the latest in scientific research in natural ingredients, we leverage our experience and knowledge to create products that are simply superior in their ability to restore vitality and maintain a healthy youthful skin.

The meaning of ENESSA

Enessa’s name was inspired by the word “Ness” which means “miracle” in Hebrew. Loosely translates to the miracle of the essence which represents Aromatherapy. Each one of our formulations contains a proprietary blend of essential oils to address different skin concerns.
