PHOTOGRAPHY: ETHICAL MADE EASY
Naturally I’m head over heels in love with Be Genki. It is, essentially, Be Naturallyou’s big sister, founded in 2006. One of my favourite aspects of the business is taking the quiet moment to make each product. Yes, I still make each product, by hand. I love it. And feel it’s as important to do so, as it is to choose high quality organic oils. To keep the natural human touch alive and present in the world. I love to blend the oils when I’m feeling joyful, and then place each master oil blend in to the amethyst crystal cave to cleanse. I fall more in love with Be Genki as each year passes.
Be genki sprung from a desire to help my friend who was confronted with anxiety. She was choosing to take Prozac. At the time, I was finishing up my diploma in nutrition and attending workshops in aromatherapy. I made her a blend of essential oils to use in an evening and suggested she run a warm bath with a few drops of the blend, turn her phone off, breathe in the calming aroma and exhale any worries she might have. We also spoke about diet choices and exercising, going for a walk each day. About six weeks later, my friend noticed a massive difference in how she was feeling. So much so that she decided that she was confident enough to ease off her pharmaceutical medication.
There are many different ways that we can make our lives less stressful and it all takes daily baby steps to move towards the direction we desire.
This was and is the inspiration for Be genki: to provide the tools for those who wish to implement positive habits in to their lives that promote a genki lifestyle.
Who is Be Genki suitable for?
The Be Serene collection is for anyone who struggles with day-to-day stress and anxiety, who is always ‘on-the-go’ with little time for ‘time out’, or who needs a gentle reminder to re-centre, re-balance and re-calibrate. It’s ideal for the person who recognises the need to just stop, pause, and really take a moment for themselves.
Be Radiant caters for all skin concerns and contains beautiful blends of 100% pure and organic oils, to truly nourish and nurture the skin. The skin care collection was designed to address specific skin concerns and formulated with incredibly effective actives for visible results.

HAVE YOU TRIED BE GENKI? WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE PRODUCTS?
Our brand and product selection is based on thorough research, based on 20+ years of industry experience. If we are not certain that an ingredient is safe and effective at bringing about desired results, we won’t stock the product. ‘Natural’ and ‘organic’ products and online shops are becoming more prevalent these days. Whilst this is great, it also is rather confusing, as many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ brands out there contain toxic ingredients that sound ‘natural’ or ‘naturally-derived’ but are indeed irritating to the skin and internal organs. If you are unsure about any ingredient, product or brand, please don’t hesitate to get in touch in the comment box below.
