Welcome to Merindah Botanicals

Skincare is personal, and it hit home for me when I had an allergic reaction to synthetic products, leaving my face swollen and beyond recognition.

I felt so self-conscious, dreading going out or being seen at work. That moment made me realise the importance of feeling good in our skin.

I believe every woman deserves to feel confident and beautiful, naturally. That's why I created Merindah Botanicals.

It’s straightforward, effective, and more than just skin deep. It's about taking care of yourself wholly, nourishing your body, mind, and soul.

After my reaction, I turned away from supermarket shelves, realising the impact of what we put on our skin.

Discovering that some skincare ingredients were as harsh as industrial cleaners shocked me and fuelled my mission for better, holistic skincare. Our products are about nurturing care, making you feel good and confident from the inside out.

It’s not just skincare; it’s self-care.

"I believe skincare should be simple, quick, and effective, while at the same time providing a sense of nourishment and self-care."

This belief is the cornerstone of our brand, inspiring our commitment to creating products that are not only efficient but also a delight to use.

Simply put, they represent self-care in every bottle.

My vision

My vision is centred on empowering women to prioritise their well-being through a nurturing skincare routine that not only cares for their skin but also rejuvenates their spirit.

In the hustle of life, self-care often takes a backseat for many women.

I'm here to shift that mindset.

By providing natural, easy-to-use skincare solutions tailored for the modern, busy woman, I aim to make self-care an effortless part of daily life.

My passion lies in guiding women towards a more holistic approach to beauty, where taking care of yourself becomes a joyful, integrated practice.


5 Minutes with Mel

Tea or Coffee: Which powers your day?

Coffee - I'm addicted and nothing else gets me excited to get up. BUT I also love tea so for me it's coffee in the morning and herbal tea in the afternoon.

If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have three skincare ingredients with you, which would you choose and why?

Actually, I'd only need one - Rosehip oil for hydration and sun burn.

In a movie about your life, which actress would play you, and why?

Phoebe Tonkin would be the perfect actress to play me because, like her personality, I love living in the moment and finding joy in sensory experiences. Her ability to focus on the here and now, coupled with her quiet, introspective, and kind nature, aligns with my approach to skincare and wellness.

Tonkin's portrayal of characters who are observant and genuine, yet enjoy their private world of sensory pleasures, mirrors how I engage with the world of natural beauty and selfcare.

What's the most unusual hobby or interest you have that might surprise people?

I'm a cult Sylvester Stallone fan. I've watched Rocky & Rambo so many times I should know the scripts by heart :-)

What's one destination you've always wanted to visit for its beauty and wellness culture?

For me, the Maldives has always been that dream spot not just for its postcard-perfect views but for the whole vibe of wellness it exudes.

Imagine unwinding in those overwater bungalows with nothing but the sound of waves, practicing yoga with a backdrop of endless blue, and indulging in spa treatments.

The Maldives feels like it could turn the simplest moments into a serene wellness ritual, and that's exactly what I'm looking for.

Early bird or night owl: When do you feel most creative or inspired?

Definitely early morning. I like to get things done when I'm up and relax when I'm done.

What's your go-to comfort food that never fails to make you feel good?

My ultimate comfort food is Spaghetti Bolognese. There's just something about that hearty, flavourful sauce clinging to perfectly cooked pasta that makes it irresistible to me. I'm not kidding when I say I could happily eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, every single day!

And according to my husband, I have a tendency to enjoy the sauce even more than the pasta itself, which is saying something because I love pasta.

What is your favourite Merindah Botanicals product and why?

Oh that is tough, but the Invigorating Body Scrub has to be my favourite. The blend of scents is like a sensory journey that truly invigorates the spirit.

And - in my opinion - it's highly addictive! After each use, my skin feels unbelievably soft and silky, to the point where I can't help but touch it.

It's not just a body scrub; it's an experience that uplifts and transforms your skincare ritual.

Go ahead and try it for yourself, I bet you will love it as much as I do!
