WHERE WE STARTED

Be genki started with a desire to help a friend.

Our founder, Sam, created a special blend of essential oils to help improve her friend’s state of mind. She began working with her to introduce self-care rituals into her day to help build her health, too. Weeks later that friend made the choice to stop taking anti-depressant medication. That oil blend was Be Serene.

Today Be genki thrives on the desire to help more people.

Over the last 13 years Be genki has grown, expanding from one oil blend to five unique Be ranges:
Be Serene,
Be Vibrant,
Be Sensual,
Be Tranquil,
and
Be Radiant.

Often we hear of people suffering in silence or turning to unnatural remedies as they face problems. Whether it’s reaching for that 3rd cup of coffee for energy, using sleeping tablets to stop tossing in the night, losing your temper or beating yourself up about something small, Be genki believes that this is not what life is about.


We can change anything by being conscious of our choices. That’s why Be genki exists so people have a natural way to help themselves.

As Thich Nhat Hanh reminds us,
‘There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way’.
