About Fynbos Therapy
Fynbos Therapy is an all natural, paraben and mineral oil free range using the finest Fynbos essential oils.
All our products are hand-crafted in Tulbagh using locally sourced ingredients.
Fynbos Therapy was started in 2005 by myself, Sophie du Toit, for my spa at Kagga Kamma Private Game Reserve where my husband and I were living. When you are so far from civilisation it is very hard to get stock so I decided to make some of my own body wraps and massage oils. I started researching some of the plants that were growing around us and discovered the amazing healing properties of the Fynbos fauna, which the San people have be utilising for thousands of years. I then sourced the pure essential oils from a local supplier in the Riebeek Valley, and Fynbos Therapy was born!
It has taken many years to get to where it is now and I am proud to share these beautifully crafted products with the rest of the world. Although I am originally from the UK, working with these uniquely South African oils makes me feel proud and privilaged to be here.
We now live on our family guest farm, Vindoux in Tulbagh, and use all our creations in our onsite day spa. 2011 was a big year, not only did we launch our hospitality range for guest houses and hotels, our daughter Angelique was born, she has inspired me in ways I could never imagine and we started to make sure our products were baby safe and gentle enough for her delicate skin.
We have added some fantastic new products over the years, plus in 2014 we added another guinea pig to the team, another daughter Thea.
The newest additions to the range are the Hidden Treasure bath bombs (my other passion is gemstones!) Along with our beautiful new growing tags on all the products. Just cover them in a layer of soil, water and watch African daisies and vyggies bloom! We have also started extracting bulbine by hand on the farm which is a fantastic soothing and skin softening product.
Thelique is our latest brand launched in 2018, and aims to provide high quality nail polish to the South African market, without the international price tag! Inspired and named by our beautiful daughters, the base product is manufactured in France, then we create the colours right here in Tulbagh. For more information visit www.thelique.co.za
I hope you enjoy Fynbos Therapy and would love to hear your feedback!
