Archeus Apothecary and location


The Archeus Apothecary is located in Poraiti, which is about 10 minutes drive from Napier (12 minutes drive from the airport). We send you directions to the apothecary in the week of the event.

If you are flying in from Auckland or Wellington for a Saturday workshop there are flights that will arrive at Napier airport with enough time for you to pick up your hire car, or be collected by a friend and driven up to the apothecary before the workshop starts. 

For people coming from out of town there are various accommodation options. The nearest accommodation to Archeus is Lomani Wai homestay. There are lots of other fabulous places to stay in Napier and around the Bay as well.

The Archeus Apothecary:

When my husband and I bought our property a few years ago, the Archeus Apothecary was just an open pole shed at the end of the lawn. Spotting an opportunity I set about designing the apothecary around the existing structure. Months of scouring the web for building bargains and the result is a simple but beautiful space with a lovely tranquil air.

We have a five-acre property and extensive gardens and trees. I think this adds to the power of everything that is dreamed of and made in the apothecary. Nature energy just seems to pour into the apothecary space. It is truly a place of healing.

Throughout the garden and paddocks there are many healing herbs and plants, from diminutive flowers and 'weeds', to towering trees. When we can, we get out and meet some of them.

The scheduled workshops are always fun here. There is something about a group of strangers gathering together with a shared interest and leaving as friends.

The apothecary and its location is also perfect for private and corporate workshops as you can really step out of the rat race and focus on yourselves.

I look forward to welcoming you here.

Oh and Archeus would not be complete without Puffle the dog!
