Meet the Alchemist
Alchimie Thé, or Gaia as I first wanted to call it, started in my kitchen whilst I was still at uni.
Simply born from my passion for natural alternatives and sustainable lifestyles.
I have been using natural alternatives and remedies for quite some time now, starting from making my own washing powder, to toothpaste through medicinal vinegars and massage oils .
Researching and sourcing essential oils and later the whole plants for my personal use led me to consider doing it for others and sharing what I learn to help people be healthier and happier.
But that wasn’t enough.
I wanted to have a bigger impact and demonstrate that business can help resolve social and environmental issues instead of creating them.
I was fed with the constant frustration of purchasing infusions that presumably had health benefits but tasted of nothing, brands that would use bleached tea bags and loads of packaging for no good reasons and use fancy artificial flavours.
I wanted Alchimie Thé to be everything I could not find in the shops; a truly ethical business with for main aim not to make money, but to have a positive impact on society.
Alchimie Thé is about showing that businesses can do more than serving vested interests and that they should.
If more people set to do the same thing, we will bring about change.
Regularly I will give 10% of the profit made in the month to a charity of your choice.
The aim is that in the future, this share of profit given to charities increases and becomes a constant.
