“I WIPE THE TEARS FROM MY EYES AS I CATCH MY BREATH AND
TIE MY HORSE TO A TREE. GALLOPING IN THE WIND HAS WHIPPED
MY HAIR AND ADRENALISED MY BODY COMPLETELY. WE’RE
STAYING IN A SMALL ESTANCIA AND I’M OUT ON ANOTHER
GLORIOUS DAY RIDE IN THE PAMPAS, ALL KITTED OUT IN CHAPS. I
CAN NOW COMFORTABLY RIDE ONE-HANDED, IN TRUE COWBOY
STYLE. WE SETTLE DOWN FOR A BARBEQUE LUNCH IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE GRASSLANDS. IT FEELS SO REMOTE. ALL I CAN SEE IS
VASTE SWATHES OF YELLOWY GREEN GRASS STRETCHING OUT TO
THE HORIZON AND LOTS OF CATTLE.

OUR GOUCHO COMPANIAN PASSES ROUND SOME OF THE
LOCAL YERBA MATÉ MADE FROM CRUSHED MATE LEAVES AND
HOT WATER. IT’S PRETTY BITTER BUT LEAVES ME FEELING ALERT
AND SWITCHED ON – NOT A BAD THING AFTER A BIG LUNCH.
I’M READY TO GET BACK IN THE SADDLE AND RIDE.
MY MIND FEELS CLEAR AND THE WIDE OPEN SPACE GIVES A
FRESH SENSE OF PERSPECTIVE. THERE’S NO ROOM FOR
THINKING. THIS IS PURE INSTINCT.”

OF GUAIAC WOOD. AN EARTHY VETIVER BASE.

YERBA MATÉ ENERGISES THE MIND AND BODY, HELPING YOU TO THINK FREELY AND CLEARLY,
WHEREVER YOU ARE.

The Fragrance

Maté absolute

Our star heart note is taken from the pale green leaves of the yerba maté bush. Found growing throughout Argentina, Brazil and South America, maté has a distinctive leafy, herbal, tea-like aroma.

Petitgrain oil

Yerba Maté’s lead top note is the crisp, zesty oil of petitgrain. Steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree, petitgrain has a fresh, woody and slightly floral aroma and is used to energise and boost clear thinking.

Cedarwood oil

A clean smelling balsamic oil with soft, woody facets. Extracted from the resin of the cedar tree, and found in the base note of our Yerba Maté blend, cedarwood oil is known to help steady the mind and body.

Lemon peel oil

A clean, crisp aroma, with a bright, sparkling opening and more rounded finish. Uplifting and refreshing, lemon oil is used to help concentration and sharpen the mind.

Green mandarin oil

A sharp green citrus oil, cold pressed from the unripened fruit of the mandarin tree. Green mandarin aroma oil brings powerful uplifting benefits to our Yerba Maté blend.

Guaiac wood oil

Known locally in Argentina as the Palo Santo or Tree of Life, guaiac has been used medicinally by Native Americans since the 16th century. A smoky aromatic oil is steam distilled from the tree’s resinous heartwood to give Yerba Maté its warm, enigmatic base.

Vetiver oil

A pale green oil extracted from the roots of the free-growing vetiver grass. Known for its grounding benefits, and traditionally used to focus the mind, vetiver gives Yerba Maté’s base a rich, earthy quality with hints of spiciness.

Orange peel oil

Orange oil has a glowing, full-bodied aroma with an underlying sweetness. Extracted from the fruit’s outer peel, the oil enhances feelings of happiness and warmth as part of our Yerba Maté blend.

Gurjum balsam oil

Distilled from the resin of the gurjum tree, this balsam oil has a distinctively sweet, yet peppery scent. It’s woody, camphoric facets blend well with guaiac wood at the base of the Yerba Maté fragrance.

Cinnamon leaf oil

A warm, spicy and musky aromatic oil, used in our Yerba Maté blend for its stimulating benefits. Historically used as a temple incense, our oil is extracted from the shiny, leathery green leaves of the cinnamon tree.

The Botanical Actives

SHEA BUTTER

A richly conditioning natural extract for the hair and skin. Made from roasted African shea tree nuts, the butter is used to help moisturise and protect from the effects of the wind and sun.

ALOE VERA LEAF JUICE

A soothing and cooling extract for the skin created from the sap of the succulent green plant. Aloe has been used for centuries for its naturally refreshing and hydrating emollient properties.

JOJOBA SEED OIL

Native to the deserts of North America, joboba is harvested for its seeds. These give us a conditioning and emollient wax which helps to soften and nourish the hair and skin.

Chamomile flower extract

A small flowering plant whose name derives from ancient Latin and Greek meaning ‘earth apple’, chamomile has been used for centuries to soothe the skin.

Witch hazel extract

A clear astringent obtained from the leaf, bark and twigs of the North American witch hazel tree. Traditionally used by native Americans, witch hazel has anti-oxidant properties and helps to soothe inflammation and ease skin complaints.

Green tea extract

A rich source of anti-oxidants, green tea leaves also have natural anti-inflammatory properties.
