A lot of people ask us: What does "Sempiira" mean?
SEMPIIRA is a Ugandan name that means "A large fire deliberately set for a constructive purpose".
In our search for the perfect name for our brand, we searched high and low for a name that sounded beautiful and elegant, yet had a powerful meaning that embodied who we are and what we stand for.
Years ago, after a somewhat harsh realization that many of the products we used every day were essentially poisoning us, we were inspired to make a change and to replace the products we used with safe and natural alternatives. Disheartened at the difficulty we encountered in the search for truly natural options, we began to create our own. Experimenting with organic oils, butters, salts and clays, we fell in love with the magic of these ingredients and the connection to nature we felt when mixing and melting the gorgeous raw fruits of the earth. Forever changed and inspired by the power we had harnessed within ourselves as we took charge of our health and re-connected to the earth, we decided to make it our mission to empower others to do the same.
When we came across the name SEMPIIRA, we knew it was the one. The fire- deliberately set for a constructive purpose- is a metaphor for the natural movement that is growing and spreading like wildfire. Our goal is to help spark the flame in the minds and hearts of others, inspiring and empowering them to take back their health and helping them to find safe, natural products that don't compromise on quality.
