Oriental Botanicals®: pharmacy-grade Chinese herbal medicines

Introducing Oriental Botanicals®, the Australian-made range of natural health products formulated according to the ancient principles of Chinese herbal medicine, and available exclusively from pharmacies.

Since 1999, our goal at Oriental Botanicals® has been to provide you with optimal therapeutic results by integrating the best of traditional Chinese medicine with clinically tested Western herbal remedies. The acquisition of Oriental Botanicals® (and our parent company Global Therapeutics Pty Ltd) by the Blackmores Group in 2016 has further strengthened our commitment to these objectives.

As our co-founder Paul Keogh explains in this video, we take this approach because we recognise that while the traditional Chinese worldview of how the human body works and what causes ill health is quite different to the Western medical understanding, it is nevertheless founded on profound ancient wisdom that has stood the test of time for thousands of years.

In particular, we share the traditional Chinese beliefs that a medicinal plant in its entirety has more healing potential than any of the individual compounds it contains, and that therapeutic outcomes are optimised when herbal medicines are meticulously combined and balanced according to ancient Chinese principles.

As a result, you’ll find that our products don’t just work to help relieve your symptoms, but are synergistic blends that have also been painstakingly formulated to support your body’s own recuperative powers.

Importantly, when you buy Oriental Botanicals® products, you can be assured of their quality. In addition to containing premium medicinal-grade herbal and nutraceutical ingredients sourced from around the world, our products are produced in Australia in accordance with the requirements of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and the principles of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) for complementary medicines.

They’re also free from artificial colours, flavours, preservatives and common allergens, and are carefully tested for purity, potency and toxic contaminants like heavy metals and pesticides.

From Curcumin Excel™ for joint pain and mild osteoarthritis to Astragalus 8® for immune support, there’s an Oriental Botanicals® product to suit most common conditions affecting Australian men, women and children over 2 years old. In the majority of cases they’re suitable for use alongside your OTC or prescription medicine after consultation with your pharmacist or other healthcare professional.
