Where it began and how you fit in

Welcome to Splendour Box and to a community of likeminded (mostly women) who are choosing to support companies and brands that are doing some good out there. If you are anything like me; and seeing as though you are here having a read (hopefully with a cuppa and some time to yourself); you are becoming a more aware shopper. Noticing that what you purchase actually makes a big difference in the world, and in your home and your body.

Growing up on a farm, we lived mostly self sufficient. My mother had a vegetable garden and a fruit orchard that she nurtured through cold winters and hot summers. She baked the most incredible sourdough bread; the smell of warm bread straight from the oven topped with butter my mother churned from goat’s milk and home made jam – now that’s a memory that keeps me warm at night. Living so close to nature cultivated a deep love and appreciation for all things natural.

As an adult, I have gone on to study a Diploma in Health & Skin Care Therapy at the renowned Somatology Academy of Isa Carstens in Stellenbosch, South Africa. It was during this time that I learned about the skin, the body, and treating conditions in a holistic and natural way using a variety of therapeutic equipment and massage techniques. Reflexology, aromatherapy, and lymphatic drainage techniques gave me an insight into a whole new world of wellness and perpetual health.

As life often does, these new discoveries led me towards a combination of all my passions – and thankfully a way to share them. Splendour Box is more than just a box of products, it’s a brand that stands for ethical practices and connecting with likeminded brands. Journey with us and uncover the inspiring stories of the people behind the brands, fall in love with the products, and bask in the benefits they will continue to give you.

Read more about our ‘magnificent philosophy’ and dive deeper into our humble (yet wildly ambitious) Splendour community.
