Why is Moon Haven?
In 1998, after many years of being unable to pinpoint the source of her debilitating muscle pain and tiredness, Leonie was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS). This led her and husband Eric down a path of exploring the best that western medicine and complimentary therapies could offer to bring about relief.
Leonie grew up surrounded by herbs and an avid interest in the formulation of skin care. Her childhood chemistry set and laboratory in the laundry, are part of family lore.
Frustrated at finding little relief for her pain, Leonie started researching all things herbal and aromatherapy, discussing the issues with other herbalists and therapists and set about making a salve that worked for her. Achy Breaky Rub was born and the rest is history.
Moisturising lotions that didn’t bring Leonie out in a rash, salves for the constant itch that plagued her hands and soaps that would deliver the benefits of the aromatherapy world to her on a daily basis followed.
Family and friends got in on the secret and soon the kitchen was turned into a laboratory – little food could be found there, but you could bet your life you could always find a jar of herbs infusing on the bench or a pot of the latest ‘research project’ on the stove. Ideas were turned into reality, more and more products were formulated and tested on the same willing band of people.
Eric, a consulting engineer and project manager, looked into the technical side of things and explored better ways of doing things. He brought both his engineering and manual craft skills to the fore and developed moulds and designed methods and techniques to make things easier. Having previously been a small business owner himself, he also began developing a detailed business plan forMoon Haven.
The word spread… and so Moon Haven was born.
