About - The Botanical Store

Our Story

Have you ever smelt a rose in full bloom, warm from the sun, and felt the very essence of that rose enter your body? Did you notice your mind calm and your heart swell all at the same time?

That is the magic of essential oils, the pure essences of nature.

I’ve been mixing and blending with the magic of essential oils for over 10 years and in 2015 I had an idea hit me, an idea about a beautiful store where we could all come in and mix in our own choice of essential oils to pure, organic skincare bases, to create skincare for our own unique needs. How fun would that be! I could picture everything

Plants have so many beautiful healing properties that can help us achieve that natural healthy skin we all want.

So almost two years later here we are at The Botanical Store, the idea fully realised, where you can do just that.

You get to pick your size of bottle or jar, choose which base you want to use and then you get to stir and mix in your choice of essential oils. Choose your oil blend based on your skin needs or because it just smells really good.

I’ve teamed up with my good friend Hannah, of amazing speciality tea brand Storm in a Teacup, to create a space where you can nourish your body on the outside with high-quality organic skincare and feed the inside with organic and sustainably sourced tea.

So happy to have you here! Let’s play!

What We Believe

We believe that as human beings we come from nature, are made from the same elements as nature and that everything we could ever need to be our best selves is provided for from nature.

We believe in the innate wisdom of our body and that if we get right back to basics and allow the pure magic of plant power to feed and nourish ourselves, that our true beauty will always be able to shine.

That when we let our true beauty shine, we show up in the world as our best selves, with confidence and joy, ready to make an impact in the world.

So that we can then grow our world to a place where we work in tandem with nature, giving back and deepening our connection to Mother Earth so that we can make our world a better place for all of us to live and love.

Giving Back

We’re here to help you but we also exist as a way to give back to the world of nature that supports us. We donate 1% of our revenue (so everything we make, not just our profit) to the Merri Creek Environment fund.

You can also choose to donate $2 to the fund when you purchase a product from us. We collect and pass this on to the Merri Creek Environment fund on a monthly basis.

We’ll keep you update via our blog as to what this means for our local Northcote Creek.

Workshops & Events

We love to pass on our knowledge so we host regular workshops and we can also host a workshop in store for your next event. We have lots of different packages so feel free to email Kim at shop@thebotanicalstore.com.au for more details.
