Hi, we're Robyn & Amanda,
Founders of Mayella Skincare, Nutrition and Herbal Tisanes - blissful organic herbal teas.
It was a combination of both our careers and having a young family that was the starting point and the driver behind what is Mayella today. Our belief in the wholesome goodness of natural and organic nourishing smoothies and foods on the table, herbal teas as a pleasurable drink and therapy, thank goodness for tea and friends...combined with the desire not to have harsh chemicals or toxins around the home, and wanting to share our knowledge with others in a wider community than our clinical practice, that lead to the birth of Mayella Organics.
Products that are good for our everyday health and wellness
Babies with sensitive skin, food intolerances and our heart full of wanting to do anything and everything possible to care for them, meant making some strong decisions to support them as best we could with their diet and home sweet home life. Life is so full when you have babies and balancing work life with family life is just that, a constantly adjusting, balancing ebb and flow. We based our decisions in their most actively growing years to look to set up every-day good foundations to see them through, and hopefully with these cellular and constitution resources embedded, onto the teenage years and an actively thriving adulthood!
Inspired by Amanda's daughter, Sophie Mayella, as our namesake, in 2010 we gave birth to Mayella Organics and reaching out to the global community with natural and organic products that are centred on creating wellness. Our belief in the health of our inner world directly connecting with and supporting the beautiful health of our outer world. A holistic connection.
Amanda's thinking as a healthcare practitioner influences Mayella’s product line to create formulations that support the body, mind and health in the ever-changing needs and phases of life.
We consider ourselves fortunate to search the global village for the world’s finest quality ingredients. Fair trade and sustainable practice enable the age-old equivalent of local markets to continue, generations of knowledge and cultural diversity to remain, where communities are able to thrive into the future and grow in the modern world.
It is our passion and joy to do what we do daily, to be a presence in your daily health and wellness journey.
Love & laughter

28 years of professional work as a clinical holistic practitioner has brought me many riches. I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with and learnt from so many people over these years - both my clients and professional colleagues. When I started my education as an Aesthetician, it was my belief that to be well, we must look to a natural holistic approach to creating and maintaining one’s overall health. Which drew me from skin into the studies of Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Therapeutic Remedial Massage and Lymphatic Encouragement. My studies qualified me to international standards and instilled in me an endless passion for learning. Over the years, my travels, study of Natural Therapies, Nutrition, Astrology and Quantum Physics have blended in with how I practise, my beliefs and what is Probioskin. Now as a mother of two beautiful people that fill my heart like nothing else, I am practising what I believe for my family’s health and wellbeing. They are my greatest gift. My ongoing love affair with skin is based on the premise that our inner and outer worlds connect with the skin. If our skin has problems, then our whole being needs help. In my career as a therapist and extending into the daily practice of our company, formulating and creating ways and means for people to take care of their whole person, mind, body and soul, well thats my bliss.
