Jackie tahi sqaure

Jackie grew up in Otautahi, Christchurch, and spent a lot of time on the West Coast of the South Island in a beautiful place called Moana, this is the place where she discovered the magical power of nature. Jackie focuses mostly on the production of tahi, lovingly hand making each oil from her and Nate's earth whare in Northland, Aotearoa. "I love working with plants and I believe we can harmoniously connect with them and with our environment to develop a deeper understanding of ourselves and of one another." Jackie also enjoys connecting with and working with people and community, if you would like to work with tahi in some way or want to chat about your skin she would love to hear from you.


Nate grew up in the Bay of Islands, his tribe is Ngāti Kahungunu from the Hawke’s Bay area. Growing up he spent a lot of time in the bush with his Dad and has continued to take the time to connect with the land, his desire and commitment to time in our forest has helped him better understand the environment he comes from and develop a deep connection to it. Nate works on product development for tahi and the development of sustainable production systems, he hopes to see that we can work together as a community and is passionate about biodiversity and restoring the whenua in Aotearoa. As well as being the tane behind tahi, Nate has a small business called Old House Trading, he focuses on sustainable and alternative building. 

Over time, together with our friends and whānau, we created tahi skincare with the desire to share it with the people.

Our oils are handmade in small batches from our home in Whangarei Heads below Mt Manaia.
