My passion for plants started when I was a child working in the garden with my mum. She passed on her knowledge about gardening, plants, home-made products and so much more. I first started recording information about herbs when I was 13-years-old. You can read more about my story and inspiration here. When I was 15 years old I started making beauty products. Over the years I have curated old family recipes and created new ones.
LaHe (love & co) Organics is a fusion of Brazil and Australia, bringing the best of both countries together. Plant based products made from the healing trees of the Amazon and Australian Native flora. They are lovingly handcrafted in the Byron Bay Hinterlands where I live. I initially launched the business as love & co. but since I am finishing my Bachelor of Health Science I decided that it was a good time to rebrand, with a simple yet effective name that represents my name Laila Helena (LaHe). Laila means the night and Helena means the light, dark and light, perfectly balancing each other.
What People Say
I absolutely love the products, a very special treat to get in the post. Makes my skin feel delicious and the tea is super yummy.Gillian
I was given Amazonian eye oil as a gift from a dear friend who knows I am self conscious about my under eye bags, wrinkles and dark circles. After using the oil every morning and night for 2 weeks I was already receiving comments from friends that I looked ‘fresher’.Kym
As soon as I started using this face oil I noticed a difference in my skin. It feels so beautiful to apply, such a light oil that absorbs nicely. My skin is less oily, feels softer and more even in tone. I love the all natural ingredients too! I highly recommend this product.Teresa
