The Founder

Davina Martin

Davina Martin has a passion for healthy and stylish living and is the founder of Mon Essentiel. After her BSc in Physiotherapy, she dedicated several years treating patients with love and care as well as volunteering for children with muscular dystrophy in Mauritius. Davina went on to complete her Masters in Marketing and Events Management from UTC and somehow she knew that there was much more that she could do to help people on an even larger scale.

Coming to South Africa opened a way for her to create a platform where she could care for families through natural and healthy products. She launched her line of signature aromatherapy soy candles with the wellness of people in mind. She went the extra mile to feature wood wicks in her candle range, which are rarely found on the South African market, adding a luxurious touch to your décor. Its soothing crackles and the smell of burnt wood is nothing less than an extraordinary experience. Davina has chosen to support the local suppliers from whom she sources her natural essential oils and other materials for production.

She is proud to produce a luxurious and quality natural product that burns beautifully, smells divine, nourishes the skin and does not pollute the air and is safe for our children. Davina believes that aromatherapy candles will become one of your must have essentials.

“Hi, thanks for popping in Mon Essentiel! I am passionate about caring for others and I could think of no better way to share that with people around me than by launching a wellness company where you are at the centre of it all. This brought about the creation of our brand Mon Essentiel (m.e) which puts the focus on you. I feel so blessed to be able to contribute to the wellbeing of families and protecting our beautiful earth with our green products.

The current range includes signature aromatherapy soy candles. We are so excited to soon be adding to our range amazing natural bath salts and room mists. Keep tuned!”
