Chiron Health Products is an Australian owned family business founded by research scientist Dr. Natalie Alexopoulos. She is a neuroscientist and early development biologist who strongly believes a good start to life is as important as maintaining optimum health throughout life.
For this reason, Chiron are developing products that use only the purest and freshest ingredients.
All oils are made from hand harvested ingredients, grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides. Because our products are made in small batches, each herb is picked and the oils made close to the production date.
Unfortunately many other products which claim to be natural use synthetic essential oils or only minute amounts of pure oil with a large amount of harsh chemicals that harm the skin as well as the environment.
Our name …
… literally means hand and pays tribute to Ancient Greek centaur, Chiron, who was a great healer and teacher to many heroes such as Asclepius, Achilles, Jason and Hercules.
When the immortal Chiron was accidentally shot with a poison arrow from Hercules, he was in agony but could not die. Chiron exchanged his life for that of Prometheus whom Zeus had imprisoned for giving the gift of fire to man.
Chiron embodied the spirit of compassion and selfless service that is imperative in medicine and healing.
So powerful has been his influence that today many words have their roots in his name:
- Chiral means the polarization of light from one hand to another
- Chiromancy is reading of the hand or palmistry
- Chiropractic is healing of joints and bones by manipulation, and
- Chirurgery is an ancient word which later became surgery
