About Us

Hello, Im kylie, founder, creator & Maker of Richmond Botanicals Co.

I am a mum of 4 and am obsessed about creating CANDLES & NATURAL BATH & BODY CARE products.

 mY GOAL IS TO HAVE a sustainable business thats good for us and our environment.

I started this adventure when I couldnt SOURCE local NATURAL BATH & BEAUTY products. SO I BEGAN TO CREATE MY OWN.

I wanted NATURAL, LOCAL products with a PLANT BASED, ORGANIC/ WILDCRAFTED ingredient list I could understand.

My journey began making cold process soap and the difference in our skin amazed us all. I was addicted.

I started FORMULATING with organic butters, oils, clays and locally grown botanicals and NOW HAVE A WIDE range of  products.  all CREATED from raw ingredients,  as local as possible, from recipes I have been refining for decades.  ALL MADE IN our RICHMOND studio in small hand made batches.  Using Organic calendula, chamomile, rose & rosemary to name a few of my favourite botanicals. our body care is FORMULATED WITH TASMANIAN BLUE GUM EXTRACTS & WILDCRAFTED ORGANIC tASMANIAN SEAWEED POWDERS & EXTRACTS. We do not use palm oil, i have never used palm oil in my soaps and never will! 

WE ONLY use packaging that’s recyclable. NO PLASTIC PACKAGING!! I offer a refill service for my candles.  Our motto is  reTURN | REFILL | REUSE. Please drop your clean jars into us at the market or our shop front for recycling and refill service. yes the refills are cheaper!
