Nature’s inspiration and imagination behind Barossa Body

We have managed to catch up for a chat and a coffee with Barossa Body creator and all-around fabulous woman, Narelle - we’ve found out a little more about her flourishing brand.

Narelle, you’re an entrepreneur, with a professional career plus a booming business - not to mention a fabulous mum of three, what is your vision for Barossa Body?

We do delicious, hydrating things to your skin. I want to make it easier to select nourishing and natural skin care. Everything is made in small batches in my studio in Williamstown using all natural and mostly plant based ingredients."

Narelle Lane | Founder / Creator | Barossa Body

What inspires you in creating your products?

“Sounds a bit corny - but I am constantly inspired by our Australian native landscape. I regularly research new ingredients that are provided by nature. Our native plants can provide so many health benefits, as our Indigenous Custodians have demonstrated for many years. It's about finding new ingredients and experimenting with them in my studio. These creative opportunities are where I flourish."

What's your fave product to use during the summer?

“It would have to be my current Hand Lotion - these are super popular with our customers and a personal favourite of mine. Trying to choose a favourite scent is like trying to choose your favourite child - so I don't have a particular favourite. I love that it is super hydrating for your hands yet not greasy, it comes in a suitable size for your purse, or for a lovely gift or an addition to a gift box. Even the manliest of men use the hand cream."

What's a great, simple routine we can do to use the hand lotion?

“I love to pair the hand lotion with a Barossa Body scrub. I first use the scrub on my hands and arms, gently exfoliating the outer skin layer to allow for new skin regeneration and silky smooth hands. I pat dry, then apply a generous amount of hand lotion."


What would perfectly complement your hand lotion from the Makers & Merchants Barossa collective? 

“For a self-care moment I apply my hand lotion for the lovely aromas and skin feel, and then enjoy a wine from Dan's Ben Murray Wines range and a lovely treat from Chocolate by Peter M.

What would be your favourite day out in the Barossa?

“I love the 'often forgotten' southern end of the Barossa. We have such lovely places to visit. I'd take my guests for a kayak adventure in the Warren Reservoir, then head to Vintage Chef Co for a delicious lunch, swing by St Hugo for a premium wine tasting, and then end up back at the Bakehouse Tavern to relax with a cocktail or two. Barossa Helicopters also offer amazing views with flights over the Barossa so that would also be worthwhile."

Shop the range - and test for yourself - in our Tanunda pop-up store 1/56 Murray Street, Tanunda or shop online and add to cart for a truly nourishing, everyday treat for your body!

the home of Barossa Body


Welcome to the Barossa, a place that encapsulates the essence of South Australia and serves as both our home and inspiration for our collective.

The Barossa community acknowledges and pays respect to the Ngadjuri, Peramangk and Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the Barossa and Adelaide Hills region.

In the 19th century, German and English pioneers planted the first vineyards and laid the foundation for the region's viticultural legacy. Today, the Barossa stands as one of Australia's most renowned wine regions - beyond this, the Barossa is a hub of artistic expression and creativity.

The region is home to a diverse community of talented artisans, from painters and sculptors to chefs and musicians. They draw inspiration from the breathtaking landscapes, charming villages, and vibrant cultural heritage that define the Barossa.

The Barossa isn't just a place—inspires us to create amazing experiences, products, and memories. We're here to share the magic of this incredible region with you.
