OUR STORY FROM THAILAND TO LATVIA
Today, the family business Lemongrass House, founded by Bobby and Palita Duchowny, has become the leading supplier of spa products to the largest hotels in the world. We invite you to get acquainted with the interesting story of our brand.
HOW IT STARTED
Bobby was born and raised in Malibu, near Los Angeles / Hollywood, where he studied photography and cinema and worked in the film industry, as did his ancestors for several generations. In 1996, he joined colleagues who went to Thailand to find a suitable place to film. A team of colleagues returned home, but Bobby fell in love with the land and Palita and decided to stay in Thailand. That was the end of his film career!
Bobby met a group of Thai intellectuals who had started organic farming at the time. Using his experience in aromatherapy in the United States, he became interested in extracting pure vegetable oils from local crops. Initially, Bobby and his wife made a small factory in the kitchen of his Bangkok apartment and sold oil products at the local Chatuchak Weekend market. But then UNICEF in Thailand heard about them and placed a large order for mosquito repellents to be used by their employees who worked outside. Bobby had studied aromatherapy in the United States, so the range of products was expanded quite quickly. With increasing success, the first Lemongrass House store was established in 2000 on Surin Beach, Phuket, which also houses large chain hotels.

At the Cherng Talay factory in Phuket, hand creams and lotions, hair care products, bath products, sprays are mixed and handmade. The Lemongrass House team in Thailand currently has 45 employees, almost all of whom are relatives of Bobby and Palita, so the company is still considered a family business.
