Kogman & Keisie Organic Farm is nestled on the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, with the Keisie River bubbling along its boundary. This is home to Fijn Botanicals natural body, sensitive skin and home products, which is made with natural, plant-derived ingredients and fynbos essential oils.
The products are created by Liana Jansen in her farm workshop. The range started off as products for the Kogman and Keisie Guesthouse. All its grey water drains into the gardens and the guesthouse needed products that will nurture the health of their guests and not harm the soil. Fijn Botanicals use no chemicals that are detrimental to human and environmental health:
- No Petroleum and petrochemical derived ingredients
- No Artificial and synthetic fragrances
- No Artificial and synthetic colours
- No Propylene glycol, No Mineral oils, No Parabens
- No Animal testing.
- 100% Bio-degradable
All the products contain pure and highly concentrated fynbos essential oils from the Langeberg area, Cederberg Mountains and the Kouga Valley.
Our products are named after the Khoikhoi words for either our local landscape features, or specific aspects that the scent evokes. It is Liana’s way of paying homage to the original inhabitants of the landscape of Montagu; those people that first recognised and used its plants for healing. “Kogman and Keisie” refers to the Cogmanskloof and Mountain directly adjacent to the farm and is derived from the Koekemans Khoi chiefdom, which lived in the area in the early 18th century. Keisie means “shining river” and traverses the farm along its southern boundary. “Kingna” means rhinoceros, and probably refers to the Renosterbos which grows in the area. The scent mist “//Khana” means “to fly”. “!Kui” means “feather” or “head” in Khoekhoe, referring to its essential oil properties that will lift your spirit like soft downy feathers and calm your senses.
All our products are refillable and retail stockists accept empty bottles for a discount at the next purchase.
