Springfields foundations are in aromatherapy, where we have established an international reputation for supplying the finest quality pure essential oils, setting benchmarks for purity and quality along the way.
Springfields was created by John and Jillian Kerr in 1989 in Sydney at a time when aromatherapy was still in its infancy. John was an academic in Botanical Medicine, specialising in essential oil chemistry and conducting clinical research into wound care. He was a sought after lecturer and has presented at major aromatherapy and wound care conferences around the world. John co-founded two internationally respected journals; ‘Aromatherapy Today’ and ‘The International Journal of Clinical Aromatherapy’.
The company grew out of John and Jillian’s passion for nature and their belief that one’s health and wellbeing could be sustained and nurtured by the beauty of nature. This belief forms the basis of our brand statement, as we continue to honour John and Jillian’s legacy to this day.
In 2003, we released our first aromatherapy body and hair care products; body butters, body washes, body lotions, shampoos and conditioners - all naturally scented with our pure essentials and free from parabens, sulphates and animal ingredients/animal testing.
In 2006, we began sourcing Certified Organic Essential Oils, and our aromatherapy collection now includes 13 Certified Organic Essential Oils, as well as Certified Organic Rosehip and Argan Oils.
In 2013, after extensive Research and Development, our Organic Skincare Collection was launched, featuring three series of facial skincare products; Rose, Lavender & Neroli. Our advanced formulations combine Certified Organic essential oils with Certified Organic botanical extracts and Cold Pressed plant oils for nutrient rich skincare that actively improves the health of your skin.
In 2016, we purchased a farm at Kulnura on the Central coast of NSW with a view to growing and extracting our own botanical extracts for use in our products, as well as establishing our own Research and Development program to explore the applications of the exotic and native plant species which grow on our farm.
Our product range has continuously evolved over the past 28 years, and now includes a substantial range of pure essential oils, organic skin care, aromatherapy body care and botanical hair care products; all made with the same diligence and to the same exacting standards that have always been applied to everything we produce.
We are proud of our history as one of the pioneers of aromatherapy in Australia and our international reputation as the ‘experts in aromatherapy’. To this day, we remain passionate about nature, and the extraordinary botanical extracts that form the basis of everything we produce.
We are proudly Australian Made and Owned.
