Colourful Herbs and Spices

“Can herbs & spices benefit me?” 


Herbs & spices have been used for their therapeutic benefits for centuries in traditional healing practices around the world. Increasingly, more people and companies are turning to age-old natural remedies for their health solutions.

In fact, scientific studies have found that herbs & spices contain active plant compounds such as phenols, phytochemicals, flavonoids and antioxidants that have a host of health benefits. According to Dr. Michael Greger and research studies, dried herbs & spices, ounce for ounce, have the highest antioxidant content in comparison to other foods.

Herbs & spices have particularly potent properties. As examples, Turmeric and Ceylon Cinnamon have strong anti-inflammatory properties, while Ginger, Curry Leaf and Clove are known to have anti-microbial characteristics. Read more about the health benefits of herbs & spices here.

All organic herbs & spices utilised in BOTANISTRY Blends are independently tested, blended and packed in New Zealand.

We currently have four BOTANISTRY products containing different and targeted herbs & spices that address health concerns:

  1. ACTIVE CORALS’ – A product for active lifestyles. The plant ingredients like Ceylon Cinnamon and Ashwagandha have been specifically selected to help with muscle recovery, joint health & mobility, and the body’s metabolism.
  2. BOOSTING AMBERS’ – A teaspoon daily to keep healthy. This combination of herbs & spices including Turmeric and Ginger supports the body’s immune system and energy levels naturally.
  3. GLOWING GREENS’ – A product for skin health. With ingredients like Moringa and Green Tea, they can help support healthy skin and detoxification in the body.
  4. DIGESTIVE JADES’ – A digestive health product. Calming herbs such as Chamomile, Ginger and Lemongrass can help with better digestion and absorption of nutrients.


Botanistry Natural Health Supplements“Are BOTANISTRY Blends vegan?”


Yes, they are. All BOTANISTRY products are 100% plant-based and vegan-friendly. They do not contain any animal-derived ingredients. The potent plant ingredients are certified organic and non-GMO.

Each powder blend contains just five plant ingredients that have been purposefully selected for their therapeutic function and flavour. They are harmoniously blended in the right formulation according to Ayurvedic principles. There are no additives, preservatives, sugars or sweeteners added into the powders. All natural, BOTANISTRY Blends contain no nasties of any kind.

We have a variety of vegan recipes on this website including baked oats, pancakes, raw treats, scrambled tofu and pesto pasta. If you’ve got any yummy recipes, please share them with us.

“Why are BOTANISTRY Blends powders and not pills?”


We get asked this question quite often. Aren’t pills easier to take? Aren’t people used to quickly swallowing pills?

Every decision we have made and continue to make for BOTANISTRY is based on what is best for you as the customer – not necessarily the easiest or most convenient. We want our products to be 100% natural and also to naturally benefit our bodies. It is commonly said, ‘you are what you eat’; but the truth is: ‘you are what you absorb’. This is why BOTANISTRY Blends have been created as powders – to make them more bioavailable and effective for our bodies.

Our bodies didn’t evolve to digest single nutrients in capsules, often in very high concentrations. Food structures contain complex compounds that enhance the body’s ability to absorb essential nutrients. BOTANISTRY Blends are made of real plant ingredients in powder form, which can be recognised, absorbed and used by the body. BOTANISTRY organic health supplement powders have been formulated with the expertise of Ayurvedic practitioners, medical doctors and food technologists.

Another important element is they are holistically formulated both for function and for flavour. Sweet, sour and bitter flavours found in herbs & spices aid the digestive process. The natural aromas and flavours of BOTANISTRY powders give the right signals to the body to start preparing for digestion such as secreting digestive enzymes. Read more about the critical role of flavour in digestion here.

Moreover, the powders can appeal to anyone having trouble or fed up of taking herbal capsules. What we also appreciate about our Blends is that they’ve helped us to create a healthy habit of mindfully eating or drinking, rather than swallowing pills and drinks in a rush.

“How should I take the powders?”


BOTANISTRY natural health supplements should fit into your daily routine. Make them a part of your regular meal times. The powders can be taken at any time and all you have to do is add one teaspoon every day. Let’s look at some examples:

  • If you like to have a smoothie or juice for breakfast, add a teaspoon of BOTANISTRY Blends. GLOWING GREENS for skin health and detoxification is the ideal companion in green juices and berry smoothies. Try Eleni’s everyday green smoothie recipe.
  • Are you a fan of lemon honey drinks when you’re feeling under the weather? Introduce a teaspoon of BOOSTING AMBERS and it’s a game changer. Read more about this home remedy here.
  • Protein shakes and smoothie bowls are common snacks and pre-workout meals. Adding ACTIVE CORALS provides additional antioxidants and helps with regulating blood sugar. Check out this nutritionist-approved protein-packed breakfast smoothie recipe.
  • If you enjoy porridge, overnight oats or baked oats, you’ve got to try it with ACTIVE CORALS. The warming cinnamon flavour and anti-inflammatory ingredients make a delicious and wholesome meal.
  • If you have grains like cous cous, quinoa or rice, why not give them a glow up by adding BOOSTING AMBERS? Not only does it give a golden hue to the dish, it helps your body as a natural immunity booster.
  • Salad for lunch or dinner? Make a quick salad dressing that’s tasty and nourishing with one of the Blends. The fragrant flavour and digestion-friendly herbs in DIGESTIVE JADES make great salad dressings – try a nutritionist’s favourite creamy tahini recipe.
  • You like to make low sugar bakes and raw treats for the whole family to enjoy? Why not add one of the Blends for extra micronutrients and antioxidants. Here are some crowd-pleasing recipes that you can keep ready in the fridge: Spiced Pumpkin Loaf, Lemon Bliss Balls and Peanut Butter Jelly Cups.
  • If you’ve had a heavy meal and feeling a little uncomfortable, you might like to have some soothing DIGESTIVE JADES in warm water as a caffeine-free tea.

In addition to the drinks and dishes you have every day, you can experiment with your own creations. We have heaps of recipes on the website, including delicious dips, waffles, pasta and more. Give them a go, or better yet, try your own and don’t forget to tag @BotanistryBlends.


Like all healthy habits, consistency is key to achieving your health goals. BOTANISTRY natural health supplement powders can be taken daily by adults and children in the recommended dosage. If you have any concerns, please consult your health professional prior to taking, particularly if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, on medication or have a medical condition.
