Archeus Apothecary Delights

"Remedies are in our gardens, before our doors, by our paths"

- Nicholas Culpeper 1616-1654 

Returning to the traditions of working with the healing herbs

at your door

Customers, students and clients who have been with me for a few years will remember the Archeus Apothecary range of natural skin care products. Each product evolved out of meeting the needs of customers who came to me asking if I could make something for different issues. Products I developed were nominated as finalists in international awards and I won an award for creating ways to help people through various life transitions. I loved doing that work but covid came along and I retreated as costs for packaging etc rose.

But I am a healer. I have stepped into a long lineage of healers throughout time and I love this part of working with the healing power of nature for our own health and well being.  People have been asking me if I would still please, please have some things available for purchase and I look out at my garden, I look at them and I can't say no. This work is part of who I am.

Wherever possible I use ingredients that growing in my gardens, locally and in the forest nearby. 

Aches & Pains Botanic Relief Oil

Archeus Apothecary Aches & Pains is bliss for sore muscles, aching feet, tired limbs. The melissa balm, lavender and comfrey all come from my garden and the poplar buds are from trees growing nearby. Each of these ingredients are renowned for helping with muscles, tendons and pain. 

This oil has been handcrafted using traditional artisanal processes and brings with it the beauty of our gardens and the nearby reserve.


Botanic Facial Serum 

Carefully selected herbs, plant oils, essential oils and plant essences. Timeless traditions to slowly and lovingly create a truly beautiful facial serum. 

Handcrafted in small batches in the Archeus apothecary at the Centre for Nature Connection.

"This literally feels like skin food that is made for me! (I know it's not just for me, but it feels like it)." - Sarah

NatFem Balm 

NatFem is an all-natural balm created to soothe, repair and moisturise vaginal dryness and sensitive and tender ladybits. :-)

This beautiful balm is made from a range of natural plant oils, butters, healing herbs and beeswax and can be used by women of any age.

"Best ever! I’ve been trying all sorts of lotions and potions and none of them can compare with this lovely product. So glad I found it." - Trish


I have very sensitive skin, I just love this oil. Heavenly smell and nurturing, soothing feel. My skin literally drinks it in!


I developed dermatitis around my eyes. The worse it got the more it affected my self-esteem. It wasn’t just the way it looked, it was also the constant burning sensation that wouldn’t go away. After many doctor’s appointments and medications, I used Archeus and it changed my life! It’s the most amazing product I have ever come across and my skin loves it! I recommend this product to everyone with sensitive skin and skin problems!


Just the most beautiful product. A joy to use leaving you with fabulous feeling skin. I love it!
