Santosa was created in response to a frustration with the ‘natural’ products available for our bodies + homes.
The brands I loved and trusted, were actually contradicting my principles of a healthy lifestyle with unpronounceable ingredients, hiding behind fancy labels.
I’m passionate about going back to basics and making sure our ingredients are as natural and nourishing as possible. I’m enthusiastic that I can create a range of products in which I feel confident sharing with the wider community, that has their health and well-being as our number one priority.
Santosa meets the need for honest, nourishing ingredients within everyday body + home products. Our carefully selected blends of essential oils encourage mindfulness and a slower pace of life.
We believe in turning simple tasks, into moments of self care.
There have been so many incredible learning opportunities since starting out - where do I even begin?
Probably having more of an idea around pricing / costings / profit / loss - this is the area I’ve done the most learning in (and still have a fair way to go).
I’ve learnt to believe in yourself, people will pay for quality, you can’t please everyone and to allow enough of a margin to make it worth your while! It’s an incredible journey and one I wouldn’t change at all.
(Can I just say the WE Network has been an incredible area of learning for me - thank you Rachel for creating this supportive community!).
