Nice to meet you

A Garden Shop & Lifestyle, with a twist on an old traditional garden center, followed by lifestyle, which is my own creation, we handpicked brands and products that are based on nature ingredients should be organic/natural/botanical/plant-based - environmentally friendly and sustainable products.

Botanical Charm's core belief is all about getting people back to the old school way of gardening, growing your own vegetables with no pesticides, no chemicals, the way grandma use to grow vegetables which was called ‘gardening’ then and now it’s called organic gardening. We also believe in bringing the outside in and creating your own oasis inside with indoors plants and we help with selecting natural products for the care of your house plants.

At Botanical Charm we want to inspire you with ideas to get you into gardening outdoors and indoors.

Gardening is for everyone, if you own your own home or if you rent, board, there are solutions (think container planting). You can be creative and create your style of garden. There are many different styles and types, you can think of bringing outdoors in by creating a tropical jungle in pots, or you could ‘grow your own’ outside with a vegetable garden and herb garden or create an oasis in your backyard with tropical jungle or maybe you'd prefer the style of a cottage garden or rock garden or vertical gardening, you can have lush lawns, water fountains or other water features such as a large pond or rock pool, you can add features to attract native birds to your garden or you could choose something low maintenance.  Whatever you do the best part of all is to create your own little slice of paradise, a natural retreat after a stressful day of hustle and bustle of everyday life, getting back to nature!

We aim for organic gardening but sometimes the garden or vegetable garden can get away from us, in the future, we will stock some non-organic products to kill weeds.





Botanical Charm is more than just a Garden Shop, we also do Lifestyle products, bringing the Botanical Charm philosophy of ‘getting back to nature’ with handpicked natural products to your home with ingredients that are natural, environmentally friendly, cruelty-free and sustainable.

Beauty should not cost pain, for good reason beauty product should not be tested on animals, we believe ingredients should be organic/natural/botanical/plant-based and only tested on people.

We ignore brands that say ‘not/doesn’t tested on animals’ this maybe an industry trick to outsource testing to third party, we only stock brands that are cruelty-free to ensure from the start to finished product, have not harming, or killing an animal, from testing ingredients to finished products on live animals.

All are cosmetics, skincare, personal care, pet products, candles, home fragrance, household products are cruelty-free.

Check out product descriptions for Organic, Ethically, Palm Oil-Free, Eco-friendly, Made in New Zealand, and Handmade products.


Supporting organic farming, and conserve biodiversity, eco-system, sustainability, the enhancement of soil fertility and no too harsh chemicals. 
Organic but not necessarily certified.


Ethically made product that are focusing strongly on improving the social aspects around production, such as how the factories operate, how employees are treated and paid. Also means, fairly produced, Fairtrade, and socially responsible.


Botanical Charm checks all products are palm oil-free, including third party outsource from brands, this is from the start to finished products. We are against environmental destruction to source ingredients. Even if the products or brands say 'sustainable' does not guarantee palm oil-free, hidden or written in plain sight, look of synthetic ingredients like 'Cetyl Alcohol', 'Glycerin', 'Decyl Glucoside', 'Trighlyceride', and Caprylic. 

The right question is where ingredients came from and are rain-forest being decimated, the products or brands cruelty-free have animals being kill off, or harming, orangutans, elephants, others species.

We beliefs palm oil-free means against environmental destruction and animal cruelty.


Sustainable product that are not harmful to mother-earth.


Supporting local made products.



Skilled trade craftsman especially in made by hand products, know as 'Artisans'.
