About Us

Archeus is an apothecary and studio in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. We owe our name to the 16th Century physician and alchemist Paracelsus, who coined the term ‘Archeus’ [Ah-kee-us] for the vital life force that resides in us, Nature and the universe.

Meet the Founder

There is just something truly sacred about working with plants and nature for beauty, health and well-being. I love working with plants that have a long tradition of therapeutic and ritual use. Many are grown and processed in the Archeus gardens. We also source the finest certified organic and therapeutic grade ingredients we can find. All plant waste is returned to the gardens as compost.
The Archeus range has evolved through getting asked by people to make something for their particular need. Over time I have deepened the work I do with plant therapeutics and energy and extended my vision into bedding, yoga mats and accessories dyed with medicinal herbs. In the tradition of wise women and healers through time, I share knowledge through the Archeus Apothecary Workshops. Every purchase contributes to our plant conservation activity.
Archeus is the result of a long-held dream to work closely with nature, taking my place in the daisy chain of women healers and herbalists through time and helping others live life more naturally. I left a career with the United Nations to do this and in the process changed my career into a calling. Enjoy exploring and experiencing Archeus. Georgina
