Welcome to Baxter Botanical. I'm a mother to three daughters, alpacas and sheep living in the beautiful rural suburb of Baxter on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.

Essential oils have always been a passion of mine and I honestly use them every day. Ever since I was young I have wanted to own a lavender farm and make products using this amazing oil. 

I find creating essential oil blends and remedies helps my family be the best they can be through a natural approach to health and wellbeing. If we can all learn to turn to nature before a trip the local pharmacist we would be surprised at just how effective natural remedies can be!

I believe there is a most certainly a place for modern medicine and more serious issues must be addressed by professionals. We are blessed to live in a day and age where illness can be readily diagnosed and treated by specialists across a multitude of healthcare professions. However, the day-to-day common ailments and conditions that can be treated "in-house" using essential oils are where I want to learn more and focus my attention on this website.

I have been treated for a chronic illness for over 10 years now and as a result, take medication which leaves me with a suppressed immune system. I have had battles with anxiety over the years and believe there is no shame in speaking openly about our struggles to empower others. We all have our struggles!

Essential oils have made a really positive impact on my health and happiness. They help ease my anxiety, create an atmosphere of peace and calm in my home, plus allow me to treat basic health issues for all members of my family which gives me confidence as a mother. I hope I can help you feel empowered too as we learn about essential oils and their many uses and benefits together!
