We are passionate about inspiring empowering and educating clients with making healthy, self-nurturing choices that benefit their daily lives. Education happens in-store throughout all customer encounters, through merchandising and in-store signage, as well as through our amazing in-store tastings and classes (that get rave reviews from clients!). Our website, videos, and social media platforms are also designed to be a great resource for ongoing inspiration and educational information. In addition to retail stores (which are locally owned and operated by us), we also offer online shopping, and our hand-crafted tea, skin and bodycare products are available at select restaurants, cafes, hotels and other retailers.
