The best naturally effective diffuser without the need for flames or electricity.
Why? The Banksia Grandis seed pod (the material from which they are made) is particularly porous. It soaks up your essential oil and slowly releases the aroma through its pores. No flames and no electricity are needed with this all natural diffuser!
Each diffuser pod is unique, due to the gorgeous natural variations in each banksia seedpod.
Use your own favourite essential oil fragrance to use with your diffuser. They come pre-tested with eucalyptus oil having been filled inside.
Place your Mini Aroma Pod in your powder room, toilet, bathroom, bedside table, wardrobe, desk, or even your car. The joy of these little beauties is that you can use them safely without flames or the need for access to a powerpoint.
I love their natural beauty; the timber has multiple holes around the outside of the pod, creating intriging patterns that draw you in to have a closer look.
Bring a taste of nature into your home by adding these exquisite artforms to a corner of your home or office.

Made from the iconic Australian Native, Banksia Grandis seed pod, by Anthony Hansen, one of Australia’s leading and award-winning craftsmen.
The Banksia Seed Pod, is made up of many holes where it once held its seeds.
The Banksia Grandis, commonly known as the Bull Banksia, is a prolific and distinctive Banksia tree found in the South West of Western Australia. This variety grows particularly large at a height of 5 - 15 metres. The large cylindrical yellow flowers reach up to 35 cm long.
It takes 24 months from the time the tree produces the flower to the time the Banksia nut reaches maturity and is suitable for picking. The fact that the tree re-grows its pods over and over again makes the Banksia an incredibly renewable resource.
Made in Australia, (Queensland), experienced tradesmen use a traditional form of woodworking called woodturning. Each pod is cut into sections and put on a woodturning lathe. A chisel is then used to shave away the outside of the seed pod revealing its unique pattern. The products are hand sanded with up to three grades of paper, then polished with 100% Australian Canola Oil to enhance the Banksia pod's natural colour.
These timber works of art are sustainably sourced.
The seed pods collected have expelled their seeds and have completed the lifecycle of the plant. They are carefully handpicked to ensure no damage is done to the tree itself or the Australian bushland. The collectors go in to the bush on foot, careful not to disturb any surrounding plants or wildlife and no heavy machinery is used during this process.
A royalty is paid to the Western Australian Forestry per seed pod, which goes to aid in forest management and conservation. The pickers are designated certain areas to collect the pods, and these are constantly changing to ensure no one area is ever depleted. Only 10% of the Banksia Seed Pods can be collected in any one area at a time.
You will love your new Banksia Aroma Pod and it will be admired by all your friends and family! They make such a perfect unique gift too.
Each Aroma Pod is tested to ensure they don't leak. However, the Aroma Pod is made from a naturally porous material and it is recommended that something is placed underneath to protect painted or highly polished surfaces.
