Hello to my lovely customers!
Lhami (Lah-mee) is all about making your daily rituals special. I create each product with the intention that it smells beautiful, feels gorgeous on your skin and contains ingredients that nourish mind, body & spirit.
I make the majority of Lhami products on my property on NSW's beautiful Central Coast. That's the view from my workroom. The scent of gardenia & frangipani wafts through on the sea breeze and our resident peacock Frank keeps me company. Our property backs onto a huge nature reserve, and we have an amazing array of native birds and creatures who live here. It’s prompted me to become part of the 'Land for Wildlife' scheme. These are a few pictures I took in our backyard. (To see more of my pics go to www.nataliemitchell.com.au )
Since I was little I’ve been blending oils and perfumes. I studied aromatherapy & organic/plant chemistry as part of a science degree, then studied cosmetic chemistry with the head chemist from one of France’s leading cosmetic companies. Lhami began as a market stall at local artisan markets and has built to a business with a growing network of retail stockists and an international e-commerce store. You can also find my essential oil range in the rooms of the exclusive Vatuvara Island Resort in Fiji.
My husband Damian is a primary school teacher and Sam (18) and Gabe (10) are my boys.
Indigenous people worked out over thousands of years that the earth is what sustains us, and that we have to respect and care for it for our own survival. Somehow this essential wisdom seems to have been pushed aside in the manic consumerism that is driving the world today, where the earth is seen as a resource to be plundered with no concern for the consequences.
I don’t want Lhami to be part of that. Wherever possible, I use Certified Organic ingredients. That way, I know they have been farmed or harvested sustainably, in a way that ensures biodiversity and protection of the environment. It means there are no pesticides or chemicals in the plants or the soil where they are grown. And it means that the people who are growing the plants are paid fairly, and work under good conditions.
