Our Story



Wardah Hartley is a yoga teacher, fitness professional and advocate for a holistic approach to wellness. “True wellness is nuanced, it is so much more than nutrition and exercise, it all starts with your state of mind – your mental wellbeing. There are far too many products out there preying on people’s insecurities and promoting destructive diet culture. I wanted to create a range of products that help people celebrate and appreciate who they are and the space they are in. Promoting self-acceptance and ultimately a holistic approach to wellness.”



Life as we know it has fundamentally changed. It has made us place more importance on the little things and appreciate our spaces where we feel safe and comfortable. Right now, for most people, that place, is home. Cocoon Essential Oils was created to help you savour every moment of your life, helping to create an environment of calm and balance – inside and outside the body.

Our products are there to help you be more present, cocoon yourself in your safe space - be that your home, your place of work or your yoga mat.

We want you to feel balanced, centred and relaxed after every interaction with our essential oils range.

Our products tap heavily into the sense of smell. Our sense of smell is our strongest human sense. It is so strong that it can affect our behaviour, emotions, perceptions and memories more than any other of our senses. 

The Cocoon Essential Oils range harnesses the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda, a 5000-year-old traditional science that was designed to bring the body back into balance. 

We are passionate about a holistic approach to wellness, and we realise that the body is constantly striving for equilibrium, we aim to aide it in this process.

Let us help you find, balance, calm and focus.


All our ingredients are 100% all natural and locally sourced in South Africa. They are vegan and cruelty free.
