Founder

Ian White is a fifth-generation Australian herbalist and the founder of Australian Bush Flower Essences. A graduate from the University of NSW, he is a Bachelor of Science and has completed degrees in Naturopathy, Herbal Medicine, and Homeopathy.

Ian has been perfecting the use of Australian plants since he was a young boy, roaming the bush with his grandmother and learning all about our spiritual and metaphysical connections to the world and all of its people. Learning alongside his grandmother gave Ian a profound respect for the healing power of nature. It was perhaps inevitable that he would go on to become a practitioner and pioneer in the field of the rare qualities and properties of the native plants of Australia. 

Ian has spent over 30 years researching and developing the Australian Bush Essences fantastic range of products. Happily married to Jane, who is also the principal harpist in the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra. When he is not working to bring spiritual health and wellbeing to the people around him, Ian likes to get closer to the natural rhythms of the universe, which includes spending time at the bushes and surfing.
