I am interested in purchasing Harakeke Flax Oil Body Lotion which I had the pleasure to sample in New Zealand in Rydges Hotel in Auckland. Please advise what sizes it is sold in and how postage is arranged to Australia.

I would also like to commend Rydges on its choice of body lotion, I have multiple allergies leading to many problems and difficulties from little niggles to losing my eyesight if I have a severe reaction. I am very pleased to say that HARAKEKE Flax Oil body lotion has not had ANY effect on me whatsoever, which is rare. Not only this but it actually helps my skin! I was beginning to feel at a loss as many products that are supposed to help rejuvenate skin, unfortunately caused the opposite effect on me. My skin was beginning to look and feel like leather. I have trialled your body lotion in all circumstances which previously have caused a reaction of some description and have had no reactions bar a marked improvement in the look and feel of my skin.

Do Harakeke Flax oil do a face lotion? What other additional products do you have?

I will more than happily advocate in any advertising the anti-allergy properties I have experienced and the enhancement of my less than hydrated skin. I love this product and wish to purchase it as soon as possible please.

Hello. In January of this year, we spent 3 incomparable weeks traveling in New Zealand. We stayed in 4 Rydges Hotels and had occasion to use your products. On our final day, a Sunday we were not able to purchase your wonderful products. The products I enjoyed there were individually bottled HARAKEKE FLAX OIL Hair Wash and Conditioner. The bottle print tells me they are proudly made by Health Pak, NZ and exclusively available from Rydges Hotels and Resorts. I have tried to contact the hotels by e-mail, but have not been successful in my quest. I, a retired environmental lawyer, am pleased to congratulate you for your demonstrated commitment to the environment. I live outside of MA, Although I'd like to return to NZ one day, am 71 and have MS. Realistically, I think I may need to restrict my travels somewhat. Therefore I write to ask if there is a way I can purchase a quantity of Natural Earth products, specifically your 100% Manuka Honey and Harakeke Oil Conditioning Shampoo, and Manuka Honey and Harakeke oil Moisturizer. I also had an opportunity to try your Cafe de Sol Coffee, made by a friend from Australia. This was really good coffee. Your web page indicates that I my be able to purchase these products. I am hopeful Cordially

My husband & I stayed in a Rydges hotel when visiting New Zealand,and I have almost run out of the body lotion that I was introduced to there. I would like to purchase a 200ml hand lotion and some soap, if that is possible?

How can I purchase the Rydges Harakeke body lotion? I just love the fragrance!

Sarah - United Kingdom

Hi, we recently stayed at Rydges Auckland and loved the toiletries provided, 'exclusively for Rydges Hotels & Resorts' by you guys. My husband in particular has stopped using all his fancy anti dandruff shampoos and is eking out the ones from our stay. As we live in Sydney we can't afford to keep crossing the ditch to stay at Rydges Auckland and purloin the toiletries! do these products also appear in any retail form? available either in Australia or online?

Hi, I went last year to NZ on holidays and I was lucky enough to try your products at Rydges Hotel. I JUST LOVE THEM! I am so glad I just found your website where I see that many other people have fallen in love with your products like I have. I was wondering how much it costs to send to the US a 265ml of shampoo and conditioner of the harakeke product. Also I have read that many people were really happy about the natural earth product so I would be interested in knowing the price for shampoo, conditioner and body lotion? Thanks heaps, your products are truly great

Jess - New Zealand

I was staying at Rydges Hotel in Wellington recently where I sampled your good products using harakeke flax oil. How can I buy some of this product for myself or is that an impossible ask?

Dee - New Zealand

I recently stayed in the Rydges hotel in Rotorua. I love the soap you guys make for there, the manuka leaf & harakeke oil. Now i must admitt I kept hiding them so room service gave me more to take home, however I have almost run out. I was wondering if there is anyway to purchase this from you at all? or if you know of any companies within austalia or anywhere that do supply it for the public to purchase?"

Chelsea - Australia

We recently got to visit beautiful New Zealand and we stayed at the Rydges in Queenstown. I don't typically use the lotions left in the room, but did while we were there. I love the degree of "oilyness" and smell of the Harakeke Flax Oil Body Lotion. Is there a place we can order it on-line or is there a place you sell it in the states? Thanks! Great product!

Lynn - United States of America

I fell in love with the Harakeke hair conditioner while at the Rydges in Queenstown. Is it available in the US or online? Thanks so much!

I recently stayed at Rydges Lakeland Queenstown, NZ, and used the Harakeke hair wash. I have many soap and shampoo skin allergies and found the hair wash to be gentle yet extremely cleansing.
Firstly, congratulations on a fine product. Secondly, can you tell me where I can purchase some.

Heath - Australia

I am so pleased to be able to source your company’s fine body lotion and facial wash which is the best ever product as far as I am concerned. It is really unusual for me to notice such things but the difference between your product and anything else around is amazing. I am not at all surprised you get many requests from guests of Rydges Hotels for harakeke flax oil. Keep up the good work. I am so pleased to get my hands on such an outstanding New Zealand product.

Dee - New Zealand
We just got back from a Grand Circle Tour company trip to Australia and New Zealand. First, needed to spend more time in New Zealand, it rocks. Anyway they booked our last night in the Auckland Rydges. The rooms are really well appointed, with beautiful views and comfortable beds. The best part as far as I was concerned was the shampoo, conditioner, and soap containers. No, Don't tell me you didn't read the bottles? They have the most entertaining descriptions written on them. I don't know who did the advertising job on these but they are amazing. Really, check them out.
Dawn - United States of America

In February I stayed at the Rydges Hotel in Queenstown and had the pleasure of using the Harakeke Flax Oil Body Lotion. Is this product available for purchase to the general public? I would love to purchase some.
