Platinum Sponsor: Perfect Potion
With values entrenched in environmental sustainability and conservation, our aim, since opening our doors in 1991 in Brisbane, has been to reconnect people with nature through aromatherapy. With a philosophy that harmonises social and environmental concerns, as well as various certifications to support our preparations, we have established a standard to which others can only aspire to. We also proudly attained 3-Star ecoBiz Partnership, an achievement that recognises our commitment to the environment through consistent sustainability practices.
We create and make all of our aromatherapy and skincare preparations in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility (solar-powered, may we add) in Banyo, Queensland. This means we ensure our sustainably sourced ingredients and products remain of the highest integrity, and offer quality preparations that are palm oil-free, vegan, cruelty-free, certified natural, and in most cases, certified organic.
Our stores are a sanctuary for the senses. They provide a nurturing, relaxing space for our customers, the Green Goddess and God. The Green Goddess and God are socially and environmentally responsible individuals who embody positivity, thoughtfulness and empathy. They look for ways to enhance their health and find balance in their life, while living in harmony with nature.
In 2008, we opened our first store in Kyoto, Japan. Our decision to enter the Japanese market was an easy one after we contemplated our values and vision. The cultural values and ethics of Japan aligned perfectly with our own, as did the aesthetics of Japan’s natural world. Since opening our stores in Japan, we have adapted many Japanese concepts, which are reflected in our current collection, including our Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) and Sacred Space ranges.
Since 1987, we have offered workshops to assist people on their journey of discovery, providing a nurturing environment to explore ways to incorporate aromatherapy as part of their daily ritual, enhancing their overall wellbeing. We are excited to be rolling out online aromatherapy workshops, which have been designed based on many of Salvatore Battaglia’s internationally acclaimed aromatherapy books and textbooks, including The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy (1st, 2nd & 3rd Editions), Aromatree, and Aromatherapy and Chakras.

Gold Sponsor: Essentially Australia
Essentially Australia was created in 2012 by Greg Trevena to provide the biggest range of Australian essential oils in the world. Greg saw a clear opportunity to create a concept of an essential oils business which specialises only in pure Australian essential oils.
We aspire to offer premier aromatic and medicinal products for the mind, body and home, all of which are derived from pure Australian native oils.
Essentially Australia presently offers 35 different Australian native essential oils and 2 native Australian carrier oils.
Essentially Australia operates two plantations in the moist, rich, red volcanic hinterland of Byron Bay, growing 12 different essential oil bearing plants. We also support a small range of passionate and committed essential oil farmers and harvesters in other parts of Australia.
We plan to continue to bring out new, unique Australian essential oils grown within our own plantations. We have also involved indigenous culture into our brand, with indigenous artwork on our essential oil gift boxes as well as acknowledging and deeply respecting native plant use by Australia’s indigenous people.
We are very proud and passionate to be so involved with our Australia’s bounty of unique native plants and its amazing array of existing and emerging essential oils.
