Essentials Pack, $75 | Aotea

Sometimes, sprucing up your home can be as simple as adding a new scent. Why not do this with a new hand wash pack from Aotea? Aotea are committed to making functional and healing herbal health products. They take inspiration from Rongoā Māori and scientific research into the actives of the flora to bring you a range of healing and vitality supporting products. We think the essentials pack would be a great addition to any home coming with one Kawakawa balm, a Kūmarahou and Mānuka Hand & Body Wash, and one bottle Mānuka oil.
