This brand came to life as one with my newborn daughter. One month after giving birth to my second daughter I realised she had very sensitive skin. It was lockdown and my options were limited. Like all mothers I had to be resourceful. So I read and read until I made her a natural soap in my own home. I formulated my first soap and the beginning of a beautiful journey.
My deep passion for wellness and holistic living and my love of raw ingredients is growing everyday hand in hand with my children. Self-care rituals became a part of our everyday life. Our home transformed itself into a spa in no time. It became a retreat and a time to unwind, evaluate and connect with myself and awaken all senses. It was a way for me to be the best version of myself and I want to invite others to be awakened. Through the art of slow-beauty and home rituals I learnt to love myself as I embraced my imperfections.
My vision is for Alchemia to be a movement built on trust, transparency, beauty with no comprises and embrace our natural beauty. It can’t promise quick fixes or magic potions because change comes from within by changing mind-set. We want you to practice slow beauty rituals, patience and self-love, celebrate inner beauty while embracing your imperfections until you love yourself abundantly.
