How did you develop your natural products?

Georgina has trained extensively over many years in the ways we can work with nature for our health and wellbeing. This includes qualifications in herbalism, bach flower remedies, anatomy & physiology; massage, aromatherapy, shamanic energy healing, reiki master, nutrition.


Since her childhood Nature has been her healer. It wasn’t until her late 40’s, that she launched her award-winning natural skincare business Archeus in 2013. Drawing on deep knowledge of herbal medicine and the human body, every product she developed was created to help specific issues.All Archeus products are made in a custom-built apothecary building set amid a healing garden. All products meet EU and FDA standards. 


Over time, people started coming to her as they faced major life transitions including end of life. Through her own journey, she feels deeply drawn to this compassionate and healing work, to helping people enhance their life journey by reawakening a deep connection to Nature.  She responded by developing coaching and guidance offerings, as well as creating a range of Archeus plant essences to enhance and support life journeys. 


Georgina has worked with the healing power of nature for many years and it has taught her much, but she has also continued to study with teachers and institutions across the world, from integrative health schools and palliative care experts, to shamanic practitioners and Buddhist masters. She is also deeply influenced by the writings of the renaissance physicians, Marsilio Ficino and Paracelsus and the 12th Century abbess and shaman, Hildegard von Bingen. Demand for Georgina's teaching work is growing internationally and she teaches regularly for The Alchemists Kitchen in New York and with A.T. Mann.

Why aren't you making Archeus skincare products anymore?

For many years we developed and handcrafted a wide range of premium natural skincare products. Over time though the demand for coaching and courses has risen and so we made the difficult decision to cut back the products we make. If you are wishing to purchase Archeus NatFem Balm you can do so at nfbalm.com.


We do still make our range of Archeus plant essences and elixirs as we believe these help act as a bridge between us and the plants that become our allies. These are available on this website.


We have made most of our original Archeus skincare formulas available in our courses section so that people can have the pleasure and satisfaction of making them themselves. They will also be in a book scheduled to be published in late 2021.

Can you ship your plant essences internationally?

Yes we can. We use tracked NZ International Courier Post for delivery. Domestically in NZ we use Posthaste and NZ Couriers.

Can I still purchase Archeus NatFem Balm?

Yes you can. It has its own dedicated website now which is nfbalm.com. It is still handcrafted here by us.
