Our Story

Welcome to Renascent Bath & Body

Welcome - you found us!We are so pleased you found us

Renascent Bath Body is dedicated to awakening and nourishing the body & soul in services &  products.

The creation of the Renascent Soap products
The original soap base came into creation for us after the founder of RenascentCollege (Lesley) spent a full 12 months trying to clear up a skin concern that turned out to be merely sensitive skin to the common chemicals in soaps. She only uses the Renascent soap now & has absolutely no concerns at all.

As well as being a great place for all your supplies, Renascent Bath & Body is the sister company to RenascentCollege - a natural therapies college and centre for wellness and well-being. We have recently grown and are now rebranded under Renascent Bath & Body.

We have had clients with many varied skin conditions (including eczema & thrush) that cannot generally use soap who trial the different bases and find the base that best suits them and their skin type. We are delighted to offer you several varieties to choose from.

The essential / fragrant oils are beautiful and can be varied depending on your mood, the fragrant oils are delicious & terrific fun (a favourite shower is with strawberry & poppyseed soap). Whether you create standard soap bars or you allow your imagination to run wild and create using cosmetic mineral shimmers/mica, milk bath, floral botanicals and dyes, you will have fun and create useful delightful gifts.

We are certain you will love it. – Great personalised Gift ideas!

ABOUT RENASCENT COLLEGE:


Renascent
 is the foundational business that was founded in 1991 by Lesley Mitchell (nee Antonoff). Lesley was later one of the directors of The Australian College of Feng Shui & Geomancy, worked with many other organisations and well known people around the world, authored 9 books and traveled extensively around the world teaching and studying. We began teaching personal development and healing classes and a natural health clinic. Shortly after this, we discovered a need to find good quality products for our own use both in the clinic, classes and in Feng Shui consultations. From this the college students and our practitioners requested that they too could purchase these products for use in their own work, hence a retail aspect to our business was began. Shortly after this, certain shopkeepers requested that they may be able to purchase our products for resale in their shops and clinics, hence a wholesale aspect was begun. It was only a short matter of time before this took off and became a major part of our lives and currently we supply many businesses in Australia and overseas.

The International College of Intuitive Sciences (ICIS - unfortunate choice of letters now with world politics being a little confusing, please be assured, this is what the letters stand for herewas founded by Daryll Mitchell after realising that the demand for Feng Shui practitioners and natural therapists was too large for him to manage on his own. From a need to provide good quality practitioners, the college was begun as well as education for those with an interest in these areas. Daryll has over 22 years background in Ch’i (energy) development, martial arts and music. The college has a strong emphasis on integrity and spiritual foundations in all work. We are proud to work with a number of Ch’i and Feng Shui masters and practitioners in Australia, China, Nepal, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, England, USA and Indonesia. Many of our wholesale and retail customers have become workshop sponsors and held very successful seminars and classes in their own areas. (Further information sheets are available if you are interested in running a seminar or series with the college).

Now RenascentCollege and RenascentBathBody are the future for us.

Premises:
We are in Warrandyte, where we have a beautiful, professional & nurturing seminar room, product display, clinic & offices next door to our home. You are free to sit in specially tuned healing energy sites, have a free cup of fresh coffee or tea or (weather permitting) relax in the beautiful garden with the kookaburras.

What we Offer: 
We offer classes in many spiritual and healing topics from Workshop style Soap Art Classes through to Healing and Self Awareness, all the way through to professional diplomas as health practitioners and teachers.

Overseas Journeys at very reasonable prices designed for personal transformation, enjoyment and gaining professional qualifications. (We previously trained 34 Reiki & Tien Ti masters on a very successful journey through Thailand and Nepal and 17 Qi Gong Practitioners in China). We have held 100's of gatherings in the arts, creativity and healing all around the world (and most tour participants become life long friends).

We offer a Natural Health Clinic dealing with clients from serious health concerns to simple revitalisation & upliftment. We utilise many healing modalities including Kinesiology to enable us to provide the highest, most rapid form of healing for each individual. A personal consultation promotes a lightness of heart as well as healing for the body, mind and soul. A recent client remarked "Without knowing it, I have needed that session for the last 30 years - I’ll be back regularly".

Lifestyle: 
Although both aspects of Renascent and The International College of Intuitive Sciences have become very successful businesses, they are more than that to us, they are our life in so many ways. We not only teach and sell these services and products, but we live the principles and incorporate them into our everyday life in every aspect. We travel extensively and spend as much time on other continents as we do in Australia, however when we are in Australia as well as working often long & varied hours, we work developing a small aspect of permaculture and self sufficiency in our own garden & home and spend as much time as possible in Ch’i development practices, recording music in our (home) studio and playing, educating and communicating with our children, who are now growing into successful entrepreneurs and artists in their own chosen fields. 

In 2001 we made the move to a lovely village Warrandyte (where Lesley grew up) 20-30 minutes out of Melbourne city in Warrandyte, we have some privacy, land and as far as we can see (almost) is our own property. We are currently delighting in being able to look up at a country night sky, with stars not illuminated from city lights. We delighted in meeting a large koala bear friend the other day and are so far not minding sharing our crops with the rabbits.

Although we have the centre, we are not housed in a large corporate office, rather we have the head offices, stock room, recording studio, seminar room, clinic area based on our own property.
We have recently built a beautiful studio on a family property where we have a small but fabulous warehouse for stock.

What we can offer to you:
The products and services we supply are those of the highest quality possible. We use them all ourselves and only stock product that "work". If you encounter a problem, we have probably already encountered it and can assist you to find a solution.

We will make a time to chat about your personal goals and in the mean time you can spend hours on you tube in free tutorials with us.

Renascent College are delighted to stock products which make a change in the consciousness in some way. They are those we use in our own lives that we know work. We offer lovely products which hold spiritual, uplifting or healing benefits.

Classes:  In the classes and workshops. we offer a range of topics including: Soap Art - beginners and advanced, Soap Gems, Lip Balms, Bathing Products, Feng Shui, Geomancy, Reiki, Kinesiology, Qi Gong, Meditation, Spiritual Development, Natural Healing, Energy techniques, Touch For Health, Gemmology, Crystal Light Balancing, Crystal Workshop, Gem Essences, Stellar Essences, Sound Healing, Tien Ti Space Clearing and many more varied topics including overseas journeys of transformation.

What we can not offer you: As our business is varied and we teach a lot and assist small business in person, we can not guarantee you 24 hour service 7 days a week.

We can not always guarantee to answer all calls immediately (even in business hours). Very often we are teaching seminars (in Australia and Overseas), employed in Feng Shui consultations for homes and businesses, working with clients in the clinic, setting up art exhibitions and providing artists and authors talks or answering an urgent request from a delightful soul that needs assistance.

However, during these times we do have answer services or voice mail and we will happily return your call as soon as possible and guarantee you personal attention and service to your request or inquiry.

Welcome to Renascent Bath & BodyWe pack and post Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings before 11am each week and we are usually in the office Fridays 10-2pm.

Orders or enquiries may be emailed through 24 hours a day. 

We are so glad you found us!
