Derived from Polynesian beliefs ‘Mana’ suggests spiritual energy, personal power & empowerment which exists in objects, places & people. While ‘Chi’ refers to the life force or vital force, energy that animates the universe, from the traditional Chinese belief systems.

Mana & Chi is an apothecary dedicated to the revival of ancient, ancestral remedies and rituals for holistic wellness. Our origins lie in our founders’ family’s long heritage of using natural concoctions for their own beauty, health and wellness pursuits. Our founder, an energy healer, was also heavily inspired by the practice of ancient Vedics and alchemists, who integrated their knowledge of recipes with their understanding of energy and matter, to create potions with greater potency.

And from such roots began our own vast exploration of age-old wellness remedies, rituals and therapies from different cultures across the world. From all natural face masks, body scrubs used in ancient India to imperial Chinese face rollers to healing modalities like Pranic Healing & European Bach Flower Therapy, we aspire to bring you the best of what our ancestors had to offer.
