Behind the Name

Ancient Kemetic spirituality tells the story of Nefertem, god of healing, beauty, and rebirth.

At the moment of creation, a sacred lotus blossom rose from the primordial waters. As the petals opened, Nefertem extended his hands to offer the world form out of chaos, the purest form of the human experience, as well as the distilled spirit (fragrance) of plants and healing.

His flower is a symbol of daily rebirth across many cultures.

The closed lotus rises clean through muddy waters (chaos) every morning and blooms.

Like the lotus and Nefertem, we too have the power to rise each day with renewed purpose.

These are the reasons we chose the name Nefertem to represent what we do and what we offer.
