With so many herbal remedies and botanical tonics on offer, the Wellington Apothecary is an absolute treat. The atmosphere here is exactly what you'd expect of a place that’s about good, healthy living. It’s calm. It’s serene. It’s a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Cuba Street. It’s stylish too, with white washed walls, reused timber and an alluring shop front.
Qualified herbalists are always on hand and really know their stuff about natural remedies, whether it be about holistic therapy or herbal medicine, there's a range of products from botanical tonics, teas and skincare, handmade in small batches at this local apothecary. They also hold workshops within the space, where you can create oils, spirits and aromatic hydrosols.
So if you’re looking for something to make you feel good, both inside and out, this is the place to come.
