Who are we
Mother and daughter, Cristina and Madalina started Magic Roots concept from the desire to make available to the Western Europeans exclusive and rare Romanian products. Victor, Cristina's husband is helping them closely.
Both working in different Western European countries for the past 20 years, they realised it was impossible to find there specific products they needed (like medicinal teas and other remedies). And this is how idea of Magic Roots was born.
The two joined forces and in 2019 started the online shop with few natural teas and honey products. They started selling first products that themselves were using and they were sure of quality.
Cristina and Madalina lived in separate countries for more than 15 years, but now they both live in Belgium and work tirelessly together to promote a healthier, more balanced lifestyle, through rare and original products of Romanian origin. They are closely supported by Victor, Cristina's husband.
