Banksia Gifts Australia has been owned and operated by Tony and Liz Hansen since 1985. Our products are hand-turned Banksia Grandis Seed Pod which are still largely handmade by Tony himself. We are proud to offer a range of giftware that is natural, hand-made, Australian made and owned.
Our most signature product the Banksia Aroma Pod Diffuser, is as beautiful as they are functional, Banksia is a particularly porous material and will soak up any essential oil and fragrance your room for weeks, and can be refilled to keep your space smelling beautiful. No flames and no electricity are needed with our all natural diffuser!
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.
