MEET THE MAKER
Humble beginnings had Fay, an Australian entrepreneur, and her 10-year-old son Jonathon, crafting pure natural plant-based soap in their kitchen after she grew tired of seeing nasty sulfates, parabens, phthalates, detergents, and artificial fragrances amongst other irritants in store bought soap.
With several family members including Jonathon suffering conditions such as eczema and asthma, she decided to create her own wellness products to soothe, restore and nourish her family.
To provide safe and sustainable wellness rituals that ignite harmony, wholeness and tranquility through Nature's wondrous healing and restorative powers.
Our products are born from our unwavering commitment to provide the mind, body, and soul with the very best that nature in the raw can provide.
Essential oils are mother nature’s quintessential elements, ingredients that work in harmony with the body, enhancing and sustaining our life force. We formulate our products with pure essential oils sourced from aromatic plants grown and distilled with integrity and care.
Our products are formulated with raw, organic ingredients that protect and truly nourish, that work positively not only for the bodies they’re applied to, but also the conditions in which they’re grown and harvested to put less pressure on the earth’s ecosystem.
We recognize that nature is pushing back, that we must exist in symbiosis with it and with respect to it. We promise to use the very best natural, organic, and sustainable ingredients wherever possible – for beauty, for all people and for the planet and all its life.
The ingredients and packaging used in crafting our products meet the eco principles we hold ourselves to - to deliver organic, fair trade and sustainable products.
