Banksia is an Australian wildflower recognised by its characteristic fruiting cones and can grow on small, woody shrubs or towering trees found in various landscapes across the country. When fresh, it’s a vital part of the food chain and provides food for stingless bees, birds and possums. A number of the species are rare. However, when dried, the 'pod' is porous and can absorb refined aromatherapy oils. Choose a carrier oil such as almond or eucalyptus, add a few drops of your favourite essential aromatherapy oil, pour into the seed pod, replace the cork, and enjoy your new room fragrance. Repeat the process each week. Be careful with essential oils and keep them out of reach of pets and young children. From HK$220.00...
