A wholesome approach to nurturing and nourishing the body, mind and spirit through the power of scent and our loving tender touch
I would like to warmly welcome you all to Ntuka
Binkie - founder
Ntuka is an independent small business based here in Bristol UK. A little collection of uniquely scented aromatic plant based blends inspired by ancient and modern aromatherapy practices of utilising our sense of smell and touch to bring harmony and nurturing to the entire body, mind and spirit.
Aromatic blends that are guided by a belief system that has complete trust in nature to provide all the answers for supporting long term skin health and our general long term well-being. True and genuine aromatic oils are believed to posses the ability and potential to have a profound impact on our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being when safely incorporated into our daily rituals. Ntuka is all about trusting in that divine and harmonious nature of these precious oils and without compromise, sourcing those that are treated with the utmost deserved respect from seed to bottle. I am beyond delighted to be able to share them with you all
All of the products are hand blended in very small batches here in Bristol UK by me using certified organic and wild crafted ingredients.
Sourced from small communities of my beloved continent, Africa and other parts of the world by a few, carefully selected group of reputable traders who have many years of experience in sourcing the finest ingredients and over the years have developed strong relationships and partnerships with the communities that they trade with.
There is a committed emphasis on sustainability, fair trade and the welfare of their partners particularly in countries where everyday living can be a difficult challenge economically. Ntuka is proud to be a very small part of that commitment.
The idea of starting Ntuka became a tangible reality in 2018. I had been searching desperately for an alternative way to earn money away from my previous employment since the birth of my youngest child in 2013. I wanted to have control over my time, still do something equally meaningful to what I was doing previously and have the time that I needed to be able to care for my young child. So in 2017 by chance or perhaps destiny I came across an article about essential oils in a magazine. What I read in that article instantly became the solution.
I had already developed an obsession for essential oils by this time. An instant attraction that would become part of my everyday life.
That article really shifted something in me. I felt a deep sense of connection and knew straight away that I had found what I had been looking for. I knew then that a door had opened for me that was never going to close.
Months of research, experimenting and observing followed. With time, I derailed my fear of everything new and unknown and went on to build Ntuka as a legitimate business in 2018.
Like any small independent business, I do hope to grow, learn and develop Ntuka as a sustainable and conscious business that holds a special place in your daily rituals and hearts
