BOTANICALS

hand made in Tasmania

Tasmanian made


Deep in the heart of the lush, green Huon Valley, in the South of Tasmania, Xen Botanicals is the home of micro-batched botanical products. All our products are hand made on our little llama farm, using local ingredients wherever possible.

Xen Botanicals uses natural products, grown or gathered locally where available. As well as using well known herbs like Calendula, St John's Wort, and Arnica which are commonly used for treating joint pains and arthritis, we like to make use of what many people call "weeds" those unloved but common plants on roadsides and in empty fields. Some of the most under-rated plants are "weeds", and we hope to show you the wonderful properties of some of these plants. We use weeds like dandelion and chickweed to make beautiful skin soothing balms. We use mullein and clover to make a natural, organic chest rub designed to help with coughs and colds.

We offer a variety of natural salves, using only organic natural ingredients, made with vegetable oils, herbs, flowers and organic beeswax. Our salves are made using natural ingredients like beeswax, essential oils and herbs. We also offer Vegan Australia approved balms for helping with rashes, sore skin, chapped skin, nappy rash, bug bites, insomnia, and stress: check out our Baby Balm, Dream Balm and Calm Balm.

In addition to offering products to make your skin feel better, we also offer botanically inspired candles. Each has been designed to offer a break from everyday stresses and pressures of modern life.

And finally, to make life a little more fun we offer some funky candles, matches, and candle accessories.

Our Product Range


Salves and Balms

Our salves are made slowly, with care. We take the best organic or locally grown herbs and then infuse the oil. The salves are made by hand in small batches, using local beeswax or shea butter and candelilla wax for our vegan salves, and then mixed with small quantities of beautiful smelling essential oils. The quality of the infusions can be seen in the rich colour of the salves. Our Baby Balm has no essential oils.

Candles

We offer two varieties of candles: amber glass jar candles and clear apothecary jar candles. Each of these are reusable containers. Our candles are made from environmentally friendly soy wax, with cotton wicks. Soy candles have long burn times and a good fragrance throw.

Bits and Pieces

All the candles we make are fragranced with botanical themes. Think of the heady smells of fresh rain in a garden, freshly cut wood, and the refreshing smells of citrus. These are all blended to have a complex set of high, medium and low fragrance notes. Use our cheeky matches if giving as a gift! We also usually have snuffers and trimmers in stock: please email if you would like to add one to your order.
