Tahi was built on a desire to help people see that their relationship with nature is what will heal them.
Based in Whangarei Heads.
With the core objective of simplifying life and reconnecting with nature, Tahi taps into New Zealand-native ingredients to create beautiful botanical oil blends.
Handcrafted with the intention of unifying your cleanser, moisturiser and hair oil (hence ‘tahi, meaning ‘one’ in Te Reo), Tahi’s oils are multi-purpose and highly nourishing. All botanical ingredients, including Harakeke, Mānuka and Koromiko, are either locally sourced or sustainably harvested on Founder, Jackie Lee’s rural Whangarei Heads property with the vision of growing more ingredients on site in future. Regarding the decision to use native flora in Tahi’s oil blends, Jackie mentions, “it just seemed like the only option to use native plants, they are the plants that grow on this whenua we walk on each day. We are connected and they have the potential to heal us - it’s beautiful!”
When it comes to formulation, time is taken to consider who will use the oil, their lifestyle and how they spend their time. Tahi’s Ngaruru oil was inspired by Jackie’s own pregnancy journey when she wanted to create a soothing oil blend which was also gentle enough to be used on baby. What resulted was a calming Koromiko, Lavender and Harakeke-infused blend to support expectant or new mothers and their babies.
The same approach was adopted when it came to the formulation of Tūhono; Tahi’s oil blend to calm sensitive skin, Marino; a Mānuka leaf-infused blend to soothe stressed skin, and Horoi; a balancing synergy for acne-prone skin types. Every Tahi product is hand-blended in small batches to channel the same love and energy into each and every bottle, and to ensure optimum freshness.
