Who We Are

Serenity Lifestyle and Wellness is a Cape Town based company that creates natural handcrafted personal care and aromatherapy products.

Serenity was started in 2001 by Anisha Jugdeo-Petersen in Durban as a hobby turned into a small enterprise through a personal drive. After her eldest son was born, she was torn between motherhood and her career. She came to the realisation that to be a fulltime mom; she needed to be innovative to replace her income. She then decided to turn her creative hobbies into a fulltime business.

Her love for hand crafting gel candles blossomed into a curiosity about aromatherapy and natural products, which were elements she used in the manufacture of her custom made gel candles. With sensitive skin and a susceptibility to a range of allergies, she began to research natural products for her family’s use. Before long and with lots of experimenting and trial and error projects she started to manufacture her own range of natural personal care wellness and lifestyle products. At first she promoted amongst and sold her wares to an existing client base, and from there the business progressed gradually through attendance and trade at a number of markets and fairs.

After relocating to Cape Town, she with the assistance and dedication of her husband and children started trading as Serenity Lifestyle and Wellness.
