Herbae Thylacini is a Tasmanian Bush Apothecary focused on making hand-crafted herbal remedies and natural skin care. It was founded in 2016 by herbal pharmacist Dr Karolina Kaja Skraskova. Kaja is passionate about finding local and particularly native alternatives to imported exotic herbs & ingredients and reducing unnecessary transport miles and carbon footprint.

Native Australian plants are the cornerstone ingredients in our skin care for their close relationship to Country. We craft all our herbal extracts in-house from raw plant material. Our steadfast commitment to sourcing herbs from local growers and Indigenous communities ensures purity and quality of our herbal ingredients and is key for the efficacy of our products. Our extracts feature a rich palette of colours, which is an important sign that they are loaded with potent antioxidants and phytochemicals.
MEDICINAL PLANTS - If we protect them they can protect us

Honoring Nature

In honor of the Tasmanian tiger (Thylacinus cynocephalus) Herbae Thylacini draws attention to our natural environment, particularly to the plants. We believe that by improving our knowledge of the plants around us, we can discover new medicines, and find better ways to live in harmony with nature. Herbae Thylacini aims to raise awareness of the interrelationship between the plant kingdom and humans. We focus on medicinal plants, particularly those native to Australia. Our herbal remedies and educational activities stand on the foundations of traditional knowledge and scientific research.

I am a holistic scientist & pharmacist with a passion for medicinal plants and herbal healing. A love of nature brought me to Tasmania. From here I pursue my dreams working on holistic approaches that deepen our understanding of nature’s medicine. Herbae Thylacini is a unique project connecting my life-long passions for pharmacy, medicinal plants and research & education.
