• About us

Our Story

Matsimela Home Spa is an authentic South African brand which started out as a home grown business in 2005 by husband and wife team, Wayne and Olivia Nel.

Empowering men and women to be self-sustainable is our goal, to allow our staff to nurture and grow in their respective positions.

We are proud of our staff complement and view our business as a family.

Our love for mother nature and all the good inherent qualities of our beautiful country gave rise to a distinctly African brand with a distinctly African name.

Matsimela is an Indigenous word meaning “roots” and originates from the African language, Sotho.

We are returning to our roots in all that we do to enrich you with our African heritage.

Our Philosophy is to create a unique and ever-evolving product range that incorporates the finest natural ingredients selected for their beneficial properties. We endeavour to source & obtain our raw materials through Southern African based companies that in turn support local farms that produce our beautiful African Ubuntu oils & extracts. Our suppliers source oils from over 30 farmers throughout Africa and surrounding islands.

Whether the products are a spoil for yourself or someone special in your life, visit us at one of our stores or shop online.

The Matsimela retail environments are classically African in look and feel, with stone clad walls, glass shelves and perspex-lit middle unit tables on which the product is displayed. Our stores call for a unique interactive African experience in which you, the consumer can willingly participate.

The Matsimela range of products is constantly growing and developing with the ethos of caring for yourself and the environment.  Our reduce ` reuse ` recycle initiative is key and we encourage all our clients to participate and be environmentally savvy.

With most products being ecofriendly based; free from harsh chemicals and preservatives you can ‘Be Well’ and experience something truly amazing.

Give yourself some valuable time back with our special treatments and Be Well!
