5 Reasons Why the MatsiMela Home Spa Range is Mats-amazing!

There are few things in this life that slay more than getting into a hot bath at the end of a long day, using a host of lush bodycare products. But, with so many ranges out there to choose from, how does a girl select the best one? We’ve got you. The prestigious title of ‘Our Current Bathroom Crush’ presently belongs to MatsiMela Home Spa range, and we’ve listed five reasons why you – and your bathroom – can no longer exist without it.


    1. It’s proudly, naturally South African
      The MatsiMela Home Spa range is inspired by a love for nature. Even the name, which means ‘roots’ in Sotho, speaks to its philosophy of celebrating its African heritage. The team has also made it its mission to source the best natural ingredients from rural communities in Southern Africa. This goes a long way to uplift the region and is one of the main reasons why the MatsiMela Home Spa range is totally lit, in our humble opinion.


    1. It’s some top-quality stuff
      The range is manufactured from only the best indigenous botanical ingredients, under super-strict quality-control standards, right here in sunny South Africa.


    1. It’s the perfect winter pick-me-up
      MatsiMela doesn’t mess around when it comes to producing luxurious bodycare products. Its Warm Orange & Ginger range contains pure ginger oil, which has a stimulating effect on the heart and circulation. This creates a feeling of warmth, wellbeing and vitality, and is perfect for those cold winter nights. The range also contains a miracle antioxidant called gingerol, which fights skin-damaging free radicals and promotes a brighter, more youthful appearance. The deliciously sweet, spicy, woody and warm scent doesn’t hurt, either.


    1. It covers all those pamper-time bases
      From soap to body butter, fizz balls to salt scrub, the MatsiMela Home Spa Warm Orange & Ginger range covers all your me-time needs. Our favourite products are the Kalahari Bath Soak (containing a natural crystal salt that’s stored in the upper callous layer of the skin, forming a protective barrier) and (obvs) the Fizz Balls. Combined, they result in a hella memorable bath-time experience.

MatsiMela supports upliftment projects

Matsimela upliftment

South African brand MatsiMela Home Spa has committed to continue to source natural ingredients from rural communities, in its effort to support and grow upliftment projects within Africa.


So says MatsiMela founder and owner, Olivia Nel. She continues: “We source and obtain all our raw materials through South African based companies that in turn support local farms that produce our beautiful African Ubuntu oils and extracts. Our suppliers source oils from over 30 farmers throughout Africa and surrounding islands. They work from grass root levels, working hand-in-hand to develop sustainable, commercial supply of high quality oils.


“Environmental impact is taken into consideration to ensure sustainable Bio-trade. With this new-found knowledge and understanding of biodiversity, friendly harvesting and conservation practices are being passed to producers.”


Nel stresses that social and cultural impact is also extremely important to MatsiMela’s main supplier. “We see first-hand evidence of women, who through Bio-trade, feel more empowered as they gain greater financial independence. The producers are better able to meet their basic needs necessary for day to day survival, for example, being able to send their kids to school thereby breaking the cycle of generational poverty.


“And, from a MatsiMela company perspective, empowering women and men to be self-sustainable has been our main aim; to allow them to nurture and grow in their respective positions.”
