MARE & ITIS
As an avid traveller and skin care enthusiast, it became difficult to find suitable skin and hair care products in various Asian countries.
This is when an idea sparked: Anele decided to make her own using all natural products! Countless hours of research led to a love for essential oils and natural products. Skin and hair thrives on natural oils.
Mare & Itis started as a travel website to illustrate how easy it was to travel on a budget. Since then Anele introduced a splash of all things aesthetic - lifestyle and design. Anele is an Earth Sciences major, an aspiring Interior Decorator and a lover of all things avocado!
WHY I LOVE THEM
Anele got in touch with me about my possible interest in her collection. Finding out that she was Durban based, all natural and Earth conscious was a bonus as her natural products filled a gap on the directory as far as good quality home products go.
She had me at zesty kitchen cleaner and since using that for the first time I have only grown fonder of her other products which I can tell she makes with all her love.
The more we can move in the local direction in terms of our product consumption the better and I am so excited to introduce you to this brand.
THIS MONTHS CURATIONS
CALMING BODY OIL
There's nothing more luxurious than lathering your body with a smooth body oil after a steamy bath! You won't need to go for a spa treatment to achieve this feeling, as you can do this at home with the new Mare & Itis Shoppe Body Oil.
Body oil is my new go-to for skin hydration. I opt for body oil over moisturiser every time. It is calming, it is sensual and it is moisturising - everything you need after a long day at work.
Anele has used the best oils for your skin (high in vitamins and improves the skin's elasticity) as well as the finest essential oils for your relaxation and pleasure.
You can apply it topically to your skin or you can add a tablespoon of the oil to your bathwater.
I can personally vouch for adding it to bathwater - my favourite!
YOGA MAT CLEANER
HAVE TO HAVE IT
Many people don't consider the cleanliness of their yoga and gym equipment.
Pretty gross, isn't it?
This yoga mat and equipment cleaner has been formulated to keep your workout bacteria-free, as well as toxin-free because, while you are winding down during your Savasana, you really don't want to be inhaling all sorts of baddies!
Fresh smelling and, quite frankly, an essential.
Ensure that you start and end your yoga session on a clean note. Now say, 'aaaaahhh'.
There's nothing wrong with taking care of your beard or skin and this beard oil is formulated for men who like to do so. It nourishes and moisturises facial hair with vitamin E rich Argan Oil.
The Mare & Itis Beard Oil is the answer for a smooth and soft beard that doesn't end up being patchy and dry.
Cedarwood Essential Oil is said to help soothe itchiness and together with Lavender Essential Oil, studies have shown that they promote hair growth.
Mare & Itis only use quality ingredients so you can benefit from all things natural - just as Mother Nature intended.
