Founded by Georgina Langdale, and guided by her expertise in herbalism, aromatherapy and menopause health and wellbeing, Archeus was born out of a passion for the healing properties of plants. Since 2013, Archeus has been an artisanal apothecary dedicated to crafting natural products that enrich the skin, body, and emotional wellbeing of women in midlife and beyond. We recognize the significance of menopause as a pivotal life phase, and it has become a core focus of our work.

The name 'Archeus' harks back to the 16th Century, coined by the visionary Paracelsus. He advocated harnessing the vital force flowing through us, Nature, and the universe—the Archeus—to achieve healing and transformation. This philosophy underpins everything we offer at Archeus, guiding our commitment to human and environmental care.

At Archeus, we wholeheartedly believe in empowering you in menopause, and every phase of life by offering products and experiences that nurture your body, mind, and spirit. Our aim is to ensure you feel strengthened, supported, and inspired during your own transformational journey.

"To heal we must work with the Archeus, the vital force that flows through us, nature and the universe"

Paracelsus 1493-1541

Georgina's Book

This book is about finding things to help when life changes. The end of a relationship, death, illness, financial or employment loss are all events that can turn life as we know it upside down. Somewhere in all this we need to find ways to care for ourselves, build resilience, and care for others too.

"Beautiful book Georgina. I keep it next to my computer and as a daily ritual of self care to myself open it at a random page and each time I have done this the words on the page are exactly what I'm needing to hear in that moment. I was drawn to the title because of the life changes I am experiencing as I head into my 50s and the peri menopause and soon to be menopause stages of my life." - Melanie
