The Archeus Product Gallery

I combine my knowledge in herbalism and energy work to create and handcraft a range of natural products that help us tap into the healing power of Nature.


How to Order

All our plant essences and blends are made from plants growing organically in our apothecary gardens, or in the nearby forest. Only a small among of plant material is needed, making them a very sustainable product. Flowers or other plant material is harvested in the early morning and added to a glass bowl of water positioned in the sun for a few hours. This is then strained and the plant material returned to the gardens as compost. A minimal amount of grape alcohol is added to preserve the Mother Stock. From this your remedy bottles are filled.

We plan our harvests with lunar and planetary transits and seasonal changes.

What are plant essences?

They are micro-dose subtle extracts of flowers and trees that work at an energetic level. Plant essences came into mainstream use in the 20th Century when a range was developed by the British doctor Edward Bach who saw how plant energetics could help counter negative states of emotion.

Plant essences are safe to take. Because they are working at an energetic level they are not affecting physiology and thus won’t interact with medication. Think of them working with energy and emotion, rather than the physical body.


How do you use them?

They can be used in a variety of ways and we offer in-depth courses into how to use them for self-care, treatment for others, and in end-of-life care:

  • Add a couple of drops to water and sip. You can make a blend of upto five essences.
  • You can apply directly under the tongue (taking care not to touch your mouth with the dropper).
  •  It is lovely to anoint chakra and pulse points with a drop of your chosen plant essence
  • Although they have no aroma they can be added to a diffuser (nice alongside essential oils)

Plant Essences & Elixirs

Single Essences

Single essences are made from individual plant species that we gather in our organic gardens and nearby forests.

Each plant has its own therapeutic benefits and seasonal and planetary alliances. We have over 30 different plants to choose from in our range.

These are sold in 10ml amber glass dropper bottles.

Botanically-infused Face Masks

Handwoven organic cotton dyed with ayurvedic herbs.

If you have been purchasing Archeus products for some time you may recall my range of bedlinen that was the result of a collaboration I made with handloom weavers and ayurvedic practitioners in Kerala, India.

I sold out of the bedlinen sets ages ago, but I still had a number of pillowcases left over. It occurred to me that this fabric would make beautiful masks! 

The colours of these masks are completely natural. They are soaked in a range of herbs including neem, vetiver, turmeric, indigo, rosemary, tulsi, thyme. These herbs are prized for their beneficial properties including antiseptic,  antibacterial etc.

I only have a limited supply of these ... once they're gone, they're gone.

So if you want a face mask that is:

  • Organic cotton
  • Handwoven
  • Natural botanic colours
  • Medicinal herbs
  • Limited edition

Then these will be perfect!

Thank you

“Thank you for your plant essences and oils. To be able to care for our father in this way when he was in hospice meant so much to us.

I think he got a great sense of peace from it, and it made my sister and I feel like we were children again, gently massaging his feet with your oils. It felt so peaceful and I think we all gained something from the experience."

- John


The room felt different

"I've been working in rest home care for many years now, but I have never experienced such a peaceful feeling as I did coming into the room in those last days as your father was dying.

The way you cared for him with plant essences, washing him with the beautiful hydrosols and oiling and anointing his body was something that I will never forget.”

- Ann
