Hi, I’m Netty and the creator of Libellula Naturals. I live in the lovely hills of Perth, Western Australia with my husband (who is my rock!), my furry four legged kids, 2 dogs (Jack & Millie) and my cat (Lily).
I often get asked why I started an all natural product business. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer 4 years ago. This got me thinking about all the chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis. We can't control the outside world but we can control what we put on our bodies and what we use in our households.
I found that a lot of products on shelves said “natural” but this was not the case. Many toxic ingredients were hidden in words like “parfum” or “fragrance”. I received some pretty horrific radiation burns during my treatment and could not find a natural product to soothe and heal it, plus lots of dry skin from chemotherapy…this is where my study and formulating started.
Always having a love for essential oils for many years and knowing they were good for so many ailments and day to day stresses, I finally started a course to become a fully Certified Aromatherapist. I love what I do and what I can do for many others.
Libellula Naturals sources all raw materials from well known, ethical and long standing local businesses in Western Australia.
