Plants have long had some pretty neat healing properties that they happily lend us when we think to use them, and thanks to Jackie Lee of tahi oils – plants and skincare have never come together more easily. A rich yet simple combination of New Zealand native and commonly found plants with a beautiful idea to take care of ourselves and our skin – tahi is banishing the idea that skincare should be difficult or strictly scientific.
Using certified organic ingredients right here in New Zealand, Jackie also has a firm ethos when it comes to sustainability – hence why the stunningly simplistic bottles can either be kept for future uses or sent back for a refill. Collaboration is always on the cards for this creative woman too; have a specific oil or healing in mind? Jackie is happy to work with you to create the perfect blend. Choose from kawakawa infusions, almond oil, lavender or manuka essential oils for a truly authentic skincare creation.
Bid farewell to those endless plastic bottles of serums, toners, scrubs and moisturisers with the hard-to-read ingredients on the back and, instead, fill your cupboards with the natural bounty that is tahi oils.
