About us

Hello, I’m Kylie, maker, creator & founder of Richmond Botanicals Co.

I  am obsessed about creating & producing unique beautiful products.

I adore gardening, especially growing botanicals for my handcrafted products. I love the simple things, I work too hard but I love every minute of it.

My goal is to have a sustainable business that’s good for us and our environment.

My inspiration when I began this adventure over a decade ago was that I couldn’t locally source natural bath & beauty products. So I created my own. I simply want natural, local products with a plant based, organic/wildcrafted ingredient list I could understand.

So my journey began, making cold process soap and the difference in our skin amazed us all. I was addicted.
I started formulating with organic butters, oils, clays and locally grown botanicals and now have a wide range of products. All created from raw ingredients, as local as possible, from recipes I have created & been refining for decades.

All handcrafted in our Richmond studio in small batches. Using organic calendula, chamomile, rose & rosemary to name a few of my favourite botanicals. Our skin, body & hair care is formulated with Tasmanian blue gum extracts & wildcrafted organic Tasmanian seaweed powders & extracts.

RBCo. is based in Southern Tasmania’s Coal River Valley, in the historic town of Richmond, at Bellevue House (circa 1840). This property is also our home, we have lovingly restored the sandstone Georgian house, outbuildings and garden.

Bellevue House is a 180 year old property that now houses our RBCo. store, studio and gallery. All located in the old stables and servants quarters, we even have a prison cell that housed convicts. Please come and visit our unique hidden gem.

Thanks

Return, Refill, Reuse.

At Richmond Botanicals Co. we use amber glass and aluminiun bottles for all our body care and candle products, we offer a service to our customers to return and reuse these jars with our refill service. Customers are able to return empty jars to our Richmond store or our Salamanca Market, we will clean, sterilise and refill. This is good for us and good for the environment.
