Nunaïa lovingly crafts mindful rituals to nourish skin and soul and has been over a decade in the making. Nicola believes passionately in the power of ritual to bring greater connection and balance to our world.
Nicola says: “I spent many years studying and researching the unique wisdom of indigenous communities in the Amazon Rainforest and Andes Mountains of Peru. Their deep ancestral wisdom and use of plants to heal not only skin health but also emotional and psychological ailments was life-changing for me. I created Nunaïa to share this wisdom and help our customers to create those moments of connection and peace I felt while working with these communities right from the comfort of their own home. The Nunaïa Ritual is a series of simple and effective skincare steps that combine this ancestral wisdom with science-based mindfulness techniques to restore not only skin health but also through the energetic and therapeutic properties of our unique blend of plants helps them to find greater balance, reduce stress and reach a place of calm.”
