Cahermore Banksia Gift Collection

Banksia Candle Holders
Banksia Aroma Pods

Banksia Grandis

We use a particular type of Banksia called ‘Grandis'. It is also commonly known as Bull Banksia or Giant Banksia. This variety grows particularly large and has a very dense centre making it ideal for woodturning.

The tree itself will grow to approximately 10 metres, it produces brilliant yellow flowers followed by the large seed pod. In the extreme temperatures of the Western Australian Bush the pods open up to release seeds for regermination.

Banksia Seed Pod

The Banksia seed pod is designed to withstand bush fires which makes it an ideal material to make candle holders from.

In fact, the Banksia Grandis relies on fire for re-germination. In a bush fire the 'eyes' of the seed pod open up and the seeds fly out. The pods are often left remaining on the tree or on the forest floor merely charred.

The porous nature of the Banksia Seed Pod also makes it an ideal material as an Aroma Pod. Because the seed pod is not as dense as timber it has the ability to soak up Essential Oils.

Aroma Pod Instructions

Step 1. Remove the cork from Aroma Pod
Step 2. Choose a good quality Essential Oil and place 3-4 drops into the pod
Step 3. Place cork back on the Aroma Pod
 
Add a few extra drops weekly for a longer lasting effect.

How Often do you add essential oil

It depends on the quality of the essential oil, f no smell is present after a week or so simply add a few more drops.
 

Can I Change the Oil Fragrance

Yes, you can change the fragrance by adding your own essential oil instead of topping up with Eucalyptus. Wait for the Eucalyptus to completely disspate and add whatever you choose. This can be done over and over again.
 

How Long Will The Aroma Pod Last

The Aroma Pod will last a lifetime.

Will The Oil Leak

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.
 

Can The Aroma Pod Be Taken Overseas

Yes they can be taken all over the world!
However if you are asked to declare a timber product in the country you are entering you must declare the Banksia products.  
We do not provide a document for use when travelling through customs.

Are The Tea Light Holders Safe

The Banksia seed pod is designed to withstand bush fires. In fact, the Banksia Grandis relies on fire for re-germination. In a bush fire the 'eyes' of the seed pod open up and the seeds fly out.  
 
The pods are often left remaining on the tree or on the forest floor merely charred.  
 
As with ALL candles, ours come with strict WARNINGS about how they are best handled.
 
Please see the following:  
  • Never Leave Burning Candles Unattended
  • Place Holder on a level surface, in a well-ventilated area.  
  • Trim candle wick to 10mm before lighting.  
  • Only suitable for use with tea light candles sized 38x15mm, in a foil cup.

Banksia Grandis - A Renewable Resource

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.

Responsibility & Sustainability

The collection of the Banskia Grandis is highly regulated by the Department of Parks and Wildlife Western Australia. It is Banksia Gifts Australia™ responsibility to ensure that the landscape is undisturbed and that the Banksia trees continue to thrive in the Australian bush.

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.

MAKING THE BANKSIA TEA LIGHT HOLDERS

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.
