Our founders


Gaia Botanica was founded in South Australia in 2021 by clinical naturopath Lily Zurlino and clinical nutritionist Anushka Malcolm. Gaia Botanica combines their love for natural medicine, their passion for daily rituals and their desire to run a sustainable business with minimal environmental impact.

After years of working with aromatic spices, organic teas and therapeutic herbs — both as a hobby and, in Lily’s case, clinical practice — Lily and Anushka decided to launch Gaia Botanica, initially as a tea range to complement their clinic, Bare Health Studio.
