When Wynnya was born five years ago, it was very clear that I wanted to create something honest, true, unique and natural.
The blocked lymph glands under my armpits had to go through a very deep, long and smelly detox to prevent any further problems, and so my first all-natural product, the deodorant in the small Weck jar was created.
Eco-friendly packaging is a challenge in South Africa when one focuses on diversity, creativity and availability. Because of this, I will have to reinvent the very effective unisex Wynnya deodorant this year, this time it will be in a push-up stick-form, and not by finger application from a glass jar anymore. In the meantime, please try some of the existing brands out there. Make sure it is aluminium and paraben-free.
Over the last two months, I have had a disconnection from many known things and people. I have found my way to inner peace and joy through all things different in Asia. Indonesia showed my children and me many different cultures, faces, languages, laughs, foods, customs, religions and transportations. The gentleness and respectful nature of the Asian people humbled us, the various foods educated our taste buds, and their different way of being connected to our divine creator on a daily basis through deep respect, gratitude and lightness, has been a wonderful experience for all of us.
Once the children went back home to South Africa, I was blessed with a gift to extend my stay by myself, to help me heal my broken heart in the most amazing place, surrounded by the most amazing healers and teachers and finally my creativity has found ways of emerging again, through many new and very different ways.
A dear friend of mine advised “the artist’s way” by Julia Cameron and my daily morning pages have come to life. It’s not as easy as it sounds to write 3 pages of whatever, but after a few weeks, I really got the hang of it and accepted the gobbledygook of my mind transferred into my handwriting. And so I will continue with it, as it is truly liberating my mind, and I am starting my date-nights with my inner artist as well, as suggested by the author.
I was introduced to Ayurvedic Healing, Chinese Medicine practices, most gentle Hatha Yoga and Pilates, Watsu water therapy, amazing Chakra alignment, Sound healing and deep relaxing breathing techniques and meditation. With the luxury of time and surroundings I find myself in, I am able to heal on a deep cellular level and find once again my deepest connections, which are sacred to me. I see it as a great kickstart into the new year, into my new life and into my new creations of Wynnya products.
Wynnya will continue to provide you with existing products like the all-natural and effective mosquito repellent range, the nourishing and gentle coconut soaps, the brilliant African Black Soap face wash, the herbal oil infusion of the face serum, and of course the heavenly smell of the cupboard smellies and diffuser flasks. We will extend the zero-waste range by a product or two, and re-introduce the all-purpose magic healing balm and natural deodorant in the stick form hopefully soon.
Many of you have experienced the absolute beauty and addiction of the nourishing Wynnya body oils and many of you have also shared my absolute frustration with the messy bottles and labels. We had to remove the convenient pump bottles of the three body oils due to the mess and wastage, however, it was replaced with the basic but luxurious Liquid Gold in the beautiful laboratory flask, but without the benefits and smells of the essential oils. Well, that is now being changed. Wynnya will launch a new essential oil blend range, local and lekker with many different applications, and blends of all sorts. It is going to be simply beautiful on many levels; soothing, healing, relaxing and nourishing.
A small but luxurious winter bathing range will keep you strong, healthy, relaxed and happy in a new fun way.
We will go big in announcing when and where our various products will be launched, We are also very excited to be taking part in some of South Africa’s most special events, which we will of course share with you too. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram and get a deeper understanding of why Wynnya is using certain natural ingredients and how they can enhance your overall wellbeing to become the best of yourself.
As always, we look forward to connecting with you face to face at our events, and through your reviews on social media.
Wishing you all a fabulous year ahead!
