Uniquely handcrafted from the seed pod that grows on Australia's Native Banksia Tree each Aroma piece is one off and 100% Australian Grown and Hand Made.
Founder and Craftsman, Tony Hansen first started experimenting with Australian Native Timber at the early age of 15 years old. His love of developing Australian made products quickly transformed when he discovered the Banksia Grandis and what he was able to create with it.
Tony and his wife Liz, discovered that Banksia was particularly porous they began to experiment with the use of good quality essentials oils. Because the seed pod is not as dense as timber, it has the ability to soak up essential oils. Once the oil is soaked up it is slowly released through the holes of the pod. Tony and Liz are proud to have discovered this functional, decorative and eco-friendly product that they hope to see in every environmentally conscious household.
Each Aroma Pod has a combination of rough edges (the outside of the seed pod), holes where the seeds once were and a red velvety fur. These attributes are a completely natural part of the seed pod. Each Aroma Pod has its own unique qualities and you will never find two the same.
Fill the pod with your favourite essential oil. The Banksia Aroma Pod is a natural diffuser which works by soaking up the essential oil. Keep your Banksia topped up and enjoy this beautiful piece of wooden art provides a wellness warmth in your home for an eco-kind Nourished Cove lifestyle.
Can these products be taken Overseas? Yes they can be taken all over the world! However if you are asked to declare a timber product in the country you are entering you must declare the Banksia products as this. We do not provide a document for use when travelling through customs.
Are the products treated? No, chemicals harmful to us and the environment. We also note that customs are not accepting of this process in any case.
How big are the Aroma pods? The medium Aroma pod measures approximately 9cm in circumference.
How much oil should you put in the pod? You should put roughly 1-2ml of oil in the pod.
Can I change the oil in my Aroma Pod? YES, you can change the fragrance by adding your own essential oil. If you're wanting to change aromas, wait for the essential oil to completely dissipate and add whatever you choose. This can be done over an over again!
Will the oil leak through the bottom of my Aroma Pod? Each Aroma Pod is tested to ensure they don't leak. However, the Aroma Pod is made from a naturally porous material and it is recommended that something is placed underneath to protect painted or highly polished surfaces.
How often do you fill the Aroma Pod with essential oil? It depends on the quality of the essential oil (Nourished Cove stocks high-quality, Australian essential oils) and how much has been put into the pod. If no smell is present, simply pop more essential oil into the pod.
How long will the Aroma Pod last? The Aroma Pod is guaranteed to last a lifetime.
What do I do if I cannot smell the oil in my pod? First you can try priming. This is a process of filling the Pod right up to the top and letting it soak into the pod, repeat this 2-3 times. If this does not work you may need to try a different aroma or essential oil Brand. Our recommendation Eco Essential oils available via our website.
What is the spongy material on the pod and why does it fall off? This is the fur of the Banksia Seed Pod, it is a natural part of the product and it is completely normal for this to fall off from time to time.
What do I do if a cork breaks? If a cork breaks off in your Pod you should be able to get it out with a corkscrew. In every order we include a spare cork for each pod ordered, in the very rare chance that a cork does break.
Do we ship to New Zealand? Banksia products are not treated as the chemicals harmful to us and the environment. In this case the customs in New Zealand do not allow the pods through.
