Where do you source your ingredients from?

All ingredients are sourced directly from South Africa or from reputable sources closer to home, and we make sure to support only those aligned with our values; for example, many of the oils are sourced from projects that benefit and empower their local communities. 

What is the shelf life of your products?

Our products are made in small batches to ensure freshness and effectiveness. For this reason, our products are best used as soon as possible after opening and within 6 months. However, if kept in a cool, dry place away from sunlight, they can last much longer. Contact us if you have any questions!

Most of the oils used are from seeds and generally do not irritate those with nut allergies. We do recommend that you consult your doctor if concerned though.

What's the deal with you and coffee? 

We admit it, we have this thing with coffee. For many, coffee is just the jolt you need to get through the day but for us, sharing a cup of coffee is a social occasion. It's a chance to share laughs, love and sometimes tears. A chance to solve the world's problems and strengthen our connections.
