Welcome to Mäesi Apothecary, a small artisan family business based in the picturesque Perth Hills of Western Australia. We grow, with love and care many of the herbs in our products - one day soon hoping to open up our space to share with our community how we harvest rain, grow using biodynamic and permaculture principles and live a low waste existence as a big family with lots of animals.
In 2013, I had a dream, an intuitive feeling and need to grow and create something. Tired of a stressful and difficult health environment, it wasn't until January 2016 that I found the time and space for Mäesi to come alive.
As a herbalist and skin care formulator (and former Health Professional), I am incredibly passionate about helping people achieve health and wellbeing through the products they put on their skin every day of the week. In our busy world, more than ever we need to take time for self-care rituals . We need to give ourselves time and space to nuture our bodies and souls with good food, clean skincare and simplicity in our daily rhythms. Extending this nurturing to our children, so they too can thrive in the chaotic world we live in.
My inspiration for these products comes from the trees and flowers and the giggling from the tiny humans that I am surrounded by each and every day. Mäesi was born because of a need to be connected to the earth, to its flowers, herbs and trees and to share this medicinal goodness with other. The earth grounds and centres - my soul flows as the season do.
Every product is personally handmade by me, including all the infused oils and most of the hydrosols. it is important that I know exactly what goes into each product.
As our farm grows and develops we will be growing more of the herbs used in these products - we will continue to choose organic, natural, plant based and cruelty free ingredients.
We borrow Mother Earth from our grandchildren and the children that come after them - so they can learn from it, to enjoy and to respect what it gives to us. This is why sustainability, waste and pollution reduction are so important to Mäesi.
My need is for you to be able to trust our ingredients and know they will not cause harm to you or your family. I will never include synthetic ingredients, those known to disrupt physiological or hormonal processes or those tested on animals or where human right are devalued.
I would love to inspire you to make great healthy and ethical choices for yourself, your family and our amazing natural environment".
Thanks so much for being here. Bek xxx
