Birthing Our Sovereignty

Our bodies are made of star dust, the stuff of the Universe.

Made of minerals, carbon, water, oxygen, and salt from the oceans, we are plant like. Born of trillions of atoms, inseparable from Nature itself, we are a holographic replica of the cosmos.

Our bodies are the technology we have long been looking for. Listen to their murmurings, and we stir something greater. Acknowledge our

photonic intelligence and we birth our sovereignty.

At Manifesto of Light, we revere Nature. We honour the highest aromatic frequencies of the plant world, and bring them to a select clientele whose bodies seek truth.

We hand blend extraordinary ultra natural perfumes, high frequency skincare and transformative air blends that re calibrate our bodies and light us up from the inside out.

Clive Newland

Clive Newland

For nearly three decades Newland has tuned in to over 10,000 clients’ unique immune systems, to listen to their secrets. With access to Manifesto of Light’s bank of the world’s finest essential oils, perfumer Clive applies his alchemical knowledge to commune with the human body and facilitate transformation at the cellular level. His own body’s intolerance of the synthetic manipulation of Nature, leads Newland to seek unsurpassed quality and purity. He makes for himself first. If his body cannot handle it, it doesn’t make the shelf.

Deirdre Light

As Founder of Manifesto of Light International, Deirdre’s role is to curate genius. In 1989, her aromatic vista expanded when she became Newland’s muse, and the rest is history. Her body became his canvas, and a stable of rare blends and decadent creams was born. With an unshakeable focus on quality and frequency, Light oversees the company with hawk vision.

Why % Pure and Natural essential oils?

It’s like wine. There are acres of wines, and seas of bottles. But there are only a few behind glass.

The select ones. The uncompromisingly real ones that refined bodies seek.

100% Pure and Natural is an industry recognised standard that currently covers no more than 1% of essential oils produced worldwide. They are more expensive to procure and take years of relationships to secure and maintain. They are the potent distillation of the immune system of the plant. They are captured light from the cosmos, and remain ‘whole’.

Our bodies recognise their signal, attune to their frequencies to light us up from the inside out.

And like wine, each season will be different. Depending on the weather, the terroir, the time of extraction or distillation and the complexity of the cosmic influences, all will be reflected in each precious drop.

Our limited batches will have small nuances that mirror that snap shot in time. Not one will be identical to another. That is the way Nature intends it, for our bodies too are always changing.

We start with Roses

Roses speak volumes. So when you make the finest rose oil in the world from Bulgaria and Turkey, the cornerstone of your skincare, and make everything else impeccably simple, aficionados take note.

As Newland states, “Rose oil of this quality speaks to the body, creating an oxygen rich bloom that elevates the psyche and opens the heart.”

On average it takes over 3,500 kg of petals to distill

just one litre of rose oil, and a champion rose picker five hours to amass enough roses to extract a mere few drops.

So every time you anoint yourself with our roses, you are literally burying your face in an ocean of richly perfumed blooms. Roses whose petals are hand-picked with tremendous care by generations of people who consciously love what they do.

Being Heaven on Earth just got a whole lot easier.



The Rose Serum

The Rose Serum

Gorgeous Over One Hundred Bunches Of Real Roses In A Bottle Double Blended Serum ®

Originally just for Newland’s own private use, this deeply sensual formula utilises the potency of 100% Pure and Natural Rose Damascena Otto and Rose Damascena Absolute to vitalise and oxygenate the body’s blood system, and elevate the psyche.

One potent application literally shifts the frequency of the body.

Both men and women succumb to the rich aroma, and each wearer will find their own intimate, daily connection.

And when the whim arises, lovers of rosy luxury may anoint their whole body and that of their lover with a generosity of spirit so divine, the Heavens will smile.

The Rose Cream

Gorgeous Over Thirty Bunches Of Real Roses In A Jar Double Blended Cream ®

As a private gift of love from Newland to Light, this luscious cream went straight to her heart.

Her body’s response was immediate. Her skin softened, became more resilient, the colour evened and she stopped wearing foundation.

From its first international foray onto the shelves of Hong Kong’s prestigious Joyce Beauty, hand blended Gorgeous Rose Cream has continued to win hearts. You’ll find its love story here.

And just for the record, Newland makes no claim to fix you, make you ‘better’ than, or change your life.

He just wants to celebrate your innate stellar beauty with gorgeous bunches of real roses.

Every single day.

The Luminaries

LUMINARIES® Liquid Light

Luminaries, definition:

  • A celestial body as in the sun or the moon
  • A body, object, that gives light
  • A person who has attained eminence in their field or is an inspiration to others.

Plants are integral to life on Earth. And so is light. Emanating across countless light years of the space continuum, celestial light is transformed by living plants to energise life.

Human bodies are plant like too. These encoded light frequencies are continually available to be assimilated by our body’s energetic field. Especially in times of great change, flux and challenge.

Intentional reciprocal flow between the plant and human energetic fields offers an extraordinary opportunity to expand our understanding of our place in this vast soup of evolving quantum particles.

Liquid Light aromatics to lighten up your every day.


Creating extraordinary bejewelled vessels to hold aromatic light.

Some collaborations are written in the stars, long before we came here, and working with Aida Guirguis of is one of those. Aida’s Egyptian heritage and her deep understanding of the precise brief enabled our very first limited edition LUMINARIES® to be born. Aida intuited the design and delivered the concept with meticulous attention to detail. The twin flames are made from the purest solid silver, layered with 22kt gold, hand burnished to Aida’s specifications by her master craftsman.

The sourcing of the extraordinary, perfect, untreated gems from around the world proved to be a challenge, but one worth accepting. For in the hands of Scarab Rouge’s world class gem cutter, their true inner beauty and light has been reverently revealed. Our first series release features earthy Carnelian, lucid Citrine, mysterious Smoky Quartz, nourishing Rose Quartz and greener than green Chrysoprase.

Just one of each.

These LUMINARIES® house and celebrate Clive Newland’s most rare and limited edition ultra-natural perfumes, featuring exquisite precious absolutes from Manifesto of Light’s curated private bank, micro batched in tiny amounts, made for a moment in time.

Each one unique.

Application of this perfume is made by rolling a genuine, hand selected black Tahitian pearl upon your skin, each and every time. Enduring yet ephemeral, the ancient is made modern in this collaboration of geniuses.

Heaven on Earth. Because we can.

The Manifesto of Light Pearl Pendulums

Introducing our instruments of extraordinary beauty and precision to bring in the Light.

Designed in collaboration with our Italian Master jeweller and geometer, to capture high frequencies and focus their powerful light with diamond precision, these instruments are not for the faint hearted. They demand respect and are to be used with the very highest intent.

Each pendulum features both Akoya and South Sea pearls to herald the new pearlescent frequencies now flooding the planet. The pearls are combined with carefully chosen gems to amplify the energies and create a synergy of higher frequencies that create change.

In the appropriate hands, these are instruments of powerful, impeccable transformation.

Our initial collection features a stable of bespoke creations, some micro set with over 500 jewels, including tsavorites, pink and blue sapphires, rubellite, white and black diamonds, rubies, emeralds, beryl and morganite. Eighteen karat gold, in either white, pink, yellow or a combination of each, frames each piece. Some include a secret compartment for tiny private talismans or an application of Clive’s rare perfume. Deirdre’s featured signature Pearl Pendulum, Venus, champions blue chalcedony, pink sapphires, paraiba, tanzanite and white diamonds.

Each piece is suspended on a gold chain featuring baby Akoya pearls, to enable the owner to also wear around the neck as a stunning piece of eye catching jewellery or kept in a safe box for focussed application when the situation demands. Either way, such a piece becomes part of the owner’s daily personal and business life.

Each pendulum takes time and is hand set by a master team of setters under our designer’s watchful eye. The process cannot be rushed. As each new piece becomes available, we will notify the individuals who are seeking such an instrument.

The Private Membership

The Rose Collection speaks to the Founders’ private world. It has been their ‘signature’ for over two decades and a half. So it is fitting that the Rose Serum and the Rose Cream are the first two ultra natural products to be featured by Manifesto of Light.

We also hand blend for clients who are not drawn to roses. Our Helichrysum and Chamomile Serum and Cream are equally luscious and effective, and are sought after by clients with high sensitivity.

The LUMINARIES® Liquid Light are from our stable of aromatic treasures. You might also like them in body oil form, as a concentrate for the bath or diffuser, or even a body cream. We make to order for those who wish to immerse themselves in aromatics of this frequency.

Once your body falls in love with our Liquid Light, Rose Serum and Rose Cream, it will seek more. Our focus on immune function is primary to all we do, so we attract clients who are both curious and proactive with their health and skincare application.

To access our private stable of limited edition, ultra natural perfumes and body oils, exquisite floral waters, calming cleansers, restorative hair balms, and our stellar vanilla pod VB Lip Star, we invite you to consider becoming an ML member.

This is an exclusive club for committed aficionados who appreciate personalised service. For Private Membership details, email the Founder,

And for those who are ready, Newland’s potent Avatar Air® blends bring the forest inside the building to re calibrate and vitalise our home and work life; blends that significantly increase productivity by boosting our immune function and opening creative channels. This is just the beginning.

So, talk to us. Email and we will keep you updated with our select stockists, our private salon functions, luxury retreats, and limited releases as they evolve.
