Our story begins in the West Coast of South Australia and beneath the mountains of Japan.
The grandmothers of our founders, Ben and Josh were sisters, who took their loves of horticulture from their family’s wheat farm on the West Coast to the suburbs of Adelaide.
Each day they would garden, often together and Moo (the elder of the two) ran nurseries around Adelaide after her husband John passed away in 1962, up until well into her 80s.
Both Josh and Ben would be tasked with helping in the gardens at home and in the businesses, forming an early understanding of the importance of plants and trees to our planet and the lives of any living organism.
At the same time, Josh, would travel to Japan each year to visit his maternal grandparents and stay at the family’s cabin in the mountains. Here he would accompany his Obachan (Japanese for grandmother) on forest walks, where she would gather botanicals for tonics to ease ailments, elixirs for vitality and for aromatherapy or what the Japanese refer to as ‘forest medicine.’
As boys, neither of the two felt they had much use for these pearls of wisdom, but as fate would have it, ILMA is here and carrying on the legacy of a love for plants and the remarkable properties within.
Inspired by their grandmothers, the Japanese tradition of forest bathing and a blend of botanicals native to Japan, ILMA is here to purify, clean, protect and cleanse you and the urban environments we live in.
