Intention setting while bathing transforms the experience into a sacred ritualconnecting your body, mind and spirit. Our products were intentionallyformulated and blessed to nurture this approach. Elevate Your RoutineAbout NefertemOur mission is to cultivate a positiveshift in consciousness by inspiringdaily reflection and growth. Nefertem is an independent, family-owned and operated company birthed out of thedesire to support the mental, emotional and spiritual journey of others. Guided by ourintuition (and the ancestors) we developed an intimate collection of products tonourish self discovery and honor soul growth. We are truly grateful the Universebrought us all together. About...The Journey...As a busy family, our goal was to meditate daily, but time always seemed to slip away. One day itdawned on us, with conscious intent, EVERYTHING we did could become our meditative practice.We began to see the value of having high vibrational items around us as a reminder to beintentional. Crystals sharpened our intuition, aromas heightened our awareness, and musicimproved our moods. Signs from the Universe came flooding in and during active meditation oneday, our founder, Brittany, received an idea for an herbal recipe. Months later, after sharing thiswith a family elder, she discovered that her great, great grandmother was a traditional healer fromthe island of São Miguel. She knew then in her heart that her soul's purpose was to continue in hergrandmother's legacy. The Process...Nefertem products are intentional from conception and creation, to sending off with love. Rawingredients undergo a purification ceremony to remove any impure energy. As a part of the process,all products are surrounded by crystals, plants and curative music to activate their potential andempower the maker. Finally, each finished product is blessed with the highest intentions beforedelivery. These additional steps infuse a sense of vibrancy into each product that can be drawnupon during conscious intention setting every time they are used. The Ingredients...Our products are made with 100% natural ingredients - like real, pure natural ingredients - like, madefrom the Earth, unadulterated, extracted-in-their-original-form-the-way-our-ancestors-would-have, kind of natural. Why? Because impurity is simply not an option. Learn more about us
