Hi there, I create artisan crafted, organic, vegan skin care from the tranquil Otways in Southwest Victoria.
I founded Nourish Botanicals in 2016 producing a range of natural, inspiring skin care products and handmade soaps.
In 2010 my interest in holistic wellness, yoga, meditation and the impact of environmental food and cosmetic toxins was sparked following my diagnosis with an autoimmune condition that required a drastic change in my lifestyle. I began experimenting with formulating my own skin care products at that time, using organic plant and essential oils. It was the beginning of a love affair with natural oils and aromatherapy, and an appreciation of the gifts nature offers for our health and wellbeing.
As a result of these changes, my skin began to feel soft and radiant and I began to experiment more, designing my first product, a 'Dry Patch Remedy' to relieve my children's dermatitis and break my family's reliance on corticosteroids.
In 2016 I made a change in address to reside in the beautiful Otways in Southwest Victoria. With time on my hands and the inspiration of nature literally in front of my nose, I began translating my experience and skills from a career in science and manufacturing to found Nourish Botanicals, a business making a range of soaps and natural skin care.
