Daylesford Apothecary.

Naturopath Bree Melotte has always had a strong passion for natural remedies and herbal vibrations. As a child, she would formulate her own special potions by wild crafting flowers and mixing them with local waters- dreaming of the day she would share her magical blends with the world! As her apothecary journey continued, her vision manifested when the Daylesford Apothecary brand was born.

Using a combination of traditional and modern herbalism, Daylesford Apothecary offers a range of magical and medicinal products to heal the mind, body and soul. With its handcrafted range of bath, face & body products, crystal skincare and herbal teas each and every product has its own unique purpose and intention.

In particular, the Daylesford Apothecary crystal-infused skincare products utilise the ancient powers of healing stones such as Rose Quartz, Citrine and Moonstone to care for the skin whilst also clearing mental, physical and spiritual blockages. The unique vibrations emitted by these special gems provides an experience that is magical and medicinal, allowing you to glow from within by enhancing positive energies and balancing chakras.

We stock a beautiful selection of Daylesford Apothecary’s goodies, which are available in the following stores: Geelong West, Torquay and Barwon Heads. These products are only limited, and available while stocks last, so please be quick!

Spotlight Series: Meet Alicia our Port Macquarie Store Manager


How long have you worked with The Laboratory, and what do you love most about us?
I’ve being with The Lab for 12 months now and what I love most about us, is that as a company we consider the ethics by which our clothes are made and that we have values that set us apart making our clothing original, and beautiful to wear with a good conscience

What sets The Lab apart from everyone else?
We consider our fabrics and still use Australian standard sizing. Women can buy pieces that will last and set them apart from the herd and they can do this without breaking the bank.

Where do you find your style inspiration from?
I try everything on that comes through the store even if its something I wouldn’t pick up if I was a shopper so i can challenge and extend my knowledge of fashion and what looks good on me. I’m a great lover of interiors and of late interior designs have been replicated in fashion via colour tones and textures. I also follow Australian designers like Alice McCall, Realisation Par, Bec +Bridge and Zimmermann on social media

What has been your favourite styles to come through the store over Summer 2018/2019?
Oh thats a hard one as there has been a few:

The E&D Tribal Print Maxi Dress i love it. It”s cut so flattering and can be worn over a tee, tied with a belt or just flowing.

-E&D Khaki Tie Front tee so versatile and can be worn with shorts, pants, jeans or a skirt by fav staple.

-Alessi Stripe Sailor dress its so Port Macquarie/ beach life I live in it. But my all time favourite this season is the A little birdie told me Printed Shirred waist Jumpsuit its comfy and looks amazing.


Tell us about a memory you cherish since working at The Lab? 

Living in a small town like Port our regular customers have become people I now consider friends and last week whilst I was out in town I bumped into to one of them Martine, who hugged me and wished me a happy new year and it made me realise how successful we have been at building relationships with people and the bonus is that when i see our regulars they are always dressed in our clothing, I love that and I always have a joke with them about how great their outfit looks and ask them where they got it, knowing full well they are our collections. 

How do you spend your days off? 

I usually spend them with my children and dog going to the beach or river or sometimes we take road trips to nearby coastal towns and spend the day there wondering and eating out. On days off when I don’t have the kids I usually catch up with friends for drinks and dinner

 What/what is your ideal holiday destination? 

Somewhere cold and surrendered by nature. Ive been to Patagonia in Chile its a trip Ill never forget.

 Favourite place to: eat-drink-relax

Here in Port my Fav is Luna bonita a modern Mexican relaxed Tapa’s Bar & they make a killer margarita.

Decorate your house, this Christmas.

Decorate your house, this Christmas.

Sometimes getting everything organised for Christmas, can be hard work! So we have put together a few ideas for you to use or take inspiration from, and have them through-out your house. 

Table Settings:

To create this simple setting we have used a hessian runner along the dining table, and decorated with foliage from the garden. Dress up your table with more decorations and centre pieces like candles, vases, and Christmas Ornaments to create that special table all your guests will want to sit around.

Table Wreath:

If you wanted to go with something more simplistic, wreaths make a perfect centre piece for your dining table. Adding in that Christmas candle would be the perfect extra piece. Dress your table up with plates, bonbons, and more foliage to add the final touches to your dining room.

From the entire team at The Laboratory, we wish you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. xx 

Only a few more sleeps until Christmas...
