Who are MR Essentials?

MR Essentials was set up in 2009 by two pharmacists dedicated and passionate about preventative medicine and leading holistic organic lifestyles. With backgrounds in pharmacy, extensive clinical knowledge and many years of service the pair noticed that the general population has come to rely heavily on the convenience of modern pharmaceuticals, to the detriment of their overall health.

We believe the future of medicine is in preventative health, empowering and educating individuals to care for their health and that of their families. The MR Essentials range was created with this passion for holistic sustainable organic health in mind.

MR Essentials currently offers three ranges:

MR Essentials Certified Organic Oils
MR Essentials Homeopathic formulations
MR Essentials Skin Care

MR Essentials do not believe in synthesised supplements, and endeavour to keep to the most organic formulations possible. Organic systems work in harmony with nature, keeping harmful chemicals out of our land, water and air, creating a healthy environment rich in wildlife, woodlands and nutrients. The organic standards place great emphasis on building and maintaining healthy soil, nutritious crops and optimising animal welfare.

MR Essentials is a proud Member of SAFE.

SAFE is New Zealand's second largest animal advocacy organisation. It prevents cruelty against animals including factory farming, genetic engineering and much more.

MR Essentials are proud members of Soil Health Australia and New Zealand Soil Health works towards building nutrients back into the soil to enable better health in our communities.

Healthy soil is alive with trillions of minute organisms which recycle and free up nutrients to enhance plant growth. More nutrient availability means better quality food. Living organisms within the soil retains water and reduces soil erosion. Soil Health focuses on avoiding modern farming practices that overuse pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers. Overuse of these products leads to less soil microbes and poorer plant health. Soil Health promotes farming that increases microbes resulting in more nutrients being available for absorption by plants.
