Oriental Botanicals: Where ancient wisdom meets modern medicine

Established in Byron Bay in 1999, Oriental Botanicals is Australia’s leading provider of traditional herbal medicines to pharmacies around the country. Our product range is also available online.

In 2020 Oriental Botanicals was proudly acquired by McPherson’s Consumer Products, joining a growing stable of market-leading innovative health, wellness and beauty brands, including A’kin, Dr. LeWinn’s and Manicare.

 

OUR PASSION

At Oriental Botanicals, we’re driven by deep respect for the time-proven practices and philosophies that underpin traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), as well as Ayurvedic medicine, Western herbal medicine and naturopathy.

We’re on a mission to make traditional medicine mainstream, and in doing so to empower everyone to create more active, fulfilled and joyful lives.

Our aim is to inspire you to strive for the balanced lifestyle that our home in Byron Bay is renowned for – one that incorporates fresh food, plenty of play and exercise, mindfulness and relaxation, and a vibrant community in which everyone is welcome.

 

OUR PRODUCTS

Oriental Botanicals’ product range focuses on ingredients from these ancient healing traditions, often in combination with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

Many of the most popular are formulated according to the energetic principles of TCM, including:

  • Kidnetone, with rehmannia and goji berry, traditionally used to support kidney health in TCM
  • Kids’ Astragalus 8 Immune Shield, which contains three herbs traditionally used together in Chinese medicine to help reduce the frequency of common colds
  • Hairpro, with biota to improve hair growth and dong quai to improve hair health by acting as a blood tonic, based on their traditional use in TCM

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, worsen or change unexpectedly, talk to your healthcare professional. Vitamins and minerals can only be of assistance when dietary intake is inadequate.

 

OUR VALUES

The values we prize and celebrate are:

  • Tradition and wisdom: We aim to make the incredible potential and wisdom inherent in traditional medicine practices from around the world available to everyone to use to enrich their health and wellbeing
  • Balance and synergy: The concepts of synergy, balance and harmony that are central to TCM are at the core of everything we do, from our approach to product formulation to our ongoing endeavours to minimise our environmental footprint
  • Being progressive: We’re constantly focused on innovation and discovery, enabling us to improve our product range based on our knowledge, experience and ongoing research
  • Integrity: We continuously demonstrate ethical behaviour and place ongoing emphasis on ensuring our products deliver maximum benefits to our consumers. Sustainability is also imperative to our success
  • Care: Just like the ingredients in our products, Oriental Botanicals’ team, retailers, consumers and suppliers are a vibrant and diverse group of individuals from all corners of the world. We actively choose to be inclusive and respectful of the cultural values and health needs of all, and look for opportunities to foster a sense of community
