Our Mission is to bring the POWER OF NATURE into Daily Routine™
We thrive on learning about how to incorporate the healing powers of nature in our lives. We share what we learn in our email newsletter and use the knowledge gained to formulate products to enhance life.
The ingredients we use are 100% pure and as close to the original source as possible. We render the tallow we receive from a husband/wife ranch.
Our products help nurture the desire to improve physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
We believe making the switch to nature-infused products can help our society heal on an individual and collective level. Incorporating herbs, essential oils and healthy fats into our routine can excite our senses, enhance our mood and connect us with our natural surroundings. This we have learned through experience.

When our first baby was born with sensitive skin, we became very aware of toxins found in skincare. After tirelessly seeking out products claiming to be "all natural", but really containing ingredients that were "nature-identical" or "nature-derived", we combined our knowledge of aromatherapy, herbs and holistic nutrition and started making our own moisturizers.
Over time we found more ways to live life more naturally. This led us to a wonderful family ranch in southern Colorado raising grass-fed cattle. A conversation with the wife of the ranch led us into a discussion about the benefits of the fat rendered from these cows.
We began reading everything we could about the history and science behind grass fed tallow (fat). What we found was remarkable. Naturally, we had to re-examine our thinking about using ALL of nature's gifts. We also came across the idea of making soap.
So, we started formulating our recipes with the fat we rendered, herbs and essential oils. We created blends for family members with certain skin and health issues and after all the positive feedback about how our products were transforming people's lives, we decided to share them with the world. And thus, Nefertem Naturals was born in 2012.
Who is "Nefertem"?
Nefertem is an ancient, Kemetic God who introduced plant essences to the world.
One traditional creation story of the Nile Valley region involved the great waters, known as Nun, that completely covered the Earth. As the sun (Ra) rose one day, a blue lotus (lily) flower emerged from the water and began to open. Inside that flower was a young man named Nefertem. With outstretched hands, he offered plants to the world. Thus, he has been highly regraded as the God of Beautification (Cosmetics), the Healing Arts (herbs) and Aromatherapy (Perfume).
Nefertem symbolizes the connection we have with nature
Humans have evolved alongside plants and animals for millions of years. Naturally, we have similarities and offer each other benefits.
The balance between us is likened to that of the Yin and the Yang - a duality, a balance, a harmony, a reciprocity.
We are confident that the more we learn about the use of nature's gifts and the more ways we can find to apply that knowledge into our everyday routine, the better we will feel and the better the whole world will be.
We may be idealistic but hey, "where there is no vision, the people will parrish".
We want to extend a massive THANK YOU to all of our faithful customers. We appreciate that you value what we do and how we do it and hope to provide you with the kind of quality products you and your family need for many years to come.
