Hello, Im kylie, creator & owner 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 batches. 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!
WE ARE SITUATED IN Southern Tasmania IN the historic town OF Richmond. We are so lucky to have BELLEVUE HOUSE, 180 YEARS OLD PROPERTY THAT WE HAVE RESTORED, OUR SHOP & STUDIO ARE LOCATED IN THE OLD STABLES THAT ONCE HOUSED 8 HORSES.
OUR STUDIO, SHOP and garden. open daily 10-4. I’m onsite most days creating something in the studio and talking to customers or at our permanent Salamanca Market site number 81 every Saturday.
