Word quickly spread of the ‘Manuka Miracle’ and Sven was amazed by the healing properties of this unique tree. Armed with a bag full of kiwi ingenuity and a thick pair of gloves, he ventured off into the rolling valleys of the Island to uncover the therapeutic secrets that lay hidden within the native plants.
Sven would often be seen in his old tin shed experimenting with beeswax and plant extracts using the old making techniques including distillation, tincturing and infusion. Before long he began developing his own unique recipes for family and friends to enjoy, using just a weather-beaten steel can, a brandy bottle, and some old aluminum piping.
It took the encouragement of family member Mark to convince him that the amazing healing properties of the Island’s plants coupled with Sven’s knack of extracting the very purest ingredients deserved to be shared with the wider world.
Now, after years of love, care (and a big helping hand from Mother Nature…) Sven and Mark have developed a wonderfully no-nonsense range of 100% natural personal care products that they want the whole world to finally share in.
