1001 Remedies founder Sofia Belcadi

A brand born from a mother’s love

It all started when the brand’s founder, Parisian-born Sofia became a mother. A life threatening delivery made her realize the importance of wellbeing.

As time went by in bustling London, this concern grew only stronger, for pollution, daily stress and the passing of time had quite an impact on her and her daughter’s wellbeing. Sofia wanted a better world for her daughter to grow up in. A world of wellbeing, nature and authenticity.

All at once, she remembered how she was a toddler growing up in Morocco, her country of origin. She re-envisioned her uncle, a famous local apothecary and aromatherapist distilling and brewing age-old remedies using the miraculous substances plants and flowers would yield. She also remembered how good it felt in her uncle’s workshop, surrounded by aromas and exotic essential oils.

Inspired by her reminiscence yet wanting something contemporary, more adapted to our everyday lives, Sofia reached out to a French aromatherapy laboratory famed for its rare and precious essential oils and unique savoir-faire. Together they traveled by and large and worked day and night to create something unheard of, something that combined ancient exotic ingredients, state-of-the-art science and a hint of Parisian “je ne sais quoi”. A 21st century version of her uncle’s remedies.

1001 Remedies was born, and the brand’s first remedies were created. Then came the moment of truth. True to her ideals, Sofia offered the remedies to her loved ones: first her dearest daughter, and then to families and friends. They felt better. They felt loved.
