Philosophia Botanica was established in Cape Town by Chinese Medicine practitioner Francesca Canzano-Franklin, and was born from a moment of inspiration and from her passion for well-being, plants, herbal remedies, aromatherapy and anything natural and botanical!
Inspired by the Cape indigenous flora, the wilderness of the African plants and botanical oils, the magnificent nature surrounding the Atlantic ocean as well as our Founder's passion for eastern therapies, wellness, beauty and therapeutic treatments, she wrote a list of everything she needed to follow such a path and the Philosophia Botanica range was born with products and rituals inspired by a fusion of African botanicals and eastern traditional techniques.
Philosophia Botanica is sourced from a variety of ecological sources around Africa. Each source promotes traditional plant-based knowledge, represents an inspiring story of organic agriculture, sustainability, economic up-liftment, and wherever possible the preservation of botanical culture.
We also believe that botanical treasures like essential oils and flower essences can have a significant positive influence on our mental, physical and soul wellness as well as on the economic health of small communities throughout the world.
