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 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."
