The Brauer Story

Brauer History

Brauer embraces the past and looks to the future by combining traditional homeopathic medicines, herbal medicines, and naturally gentle skincare with modern science and a genuine understanding of what you want. 

Every day, Australian-made and owned Brauer Natural Medicines are trusted by thousands of Australians to support their body’s own healing abilities — naturally. For you, that means feeling your vital best every day. 

The rich history behind Brauer tells you a lot about the company today. 

Brauer began as a South Australian family pharmacy with a focus on natural medicines and has grown into a leading brand that is available in over 5000 pharmacies and health food stores across Australia. 

In 1929, Pharmacist Hermann Brauer started his small pharmacy where he sold both orthodox medicine and his own natural homeopathic remedies. Hermann became well-known for his high quality natural formulations, which he tailored to meet his customers’ needs. 

Hermann’s son, Warren, also a pharmacist, extended the family tradition and worked with his wife to create a full production and laboratory facility in South Australia’s Barossa Valley, where Brauer Natural Medicine is still based today.

Combining traditional wisdom and modern science.

Many of Brauer Natural Medicine’s products are developed and produced in the company’s pharmaceutical manufacturing facility following a strict code of practice for medicines.

The facility includes a homoeopathic dispensary where custom-made remedies are prepared to order for healthcare professionals. 


Today, Brauer invests in research to find out what types of health problems concern everyday Australians.

Our formulation experts then combine traditional wisdom with modern science to develop products to meet your needs. We hope to help you feel a bit healthier as we’ve been doing since 1929. 


Developed from traditional holistic principles dating back more than 200 years, homeopathy is a system of medicine based on a natural law or theory of treating like with like.

Put simply, our methodology to assist renewed good health through relief of minor ailments is about listening to your body and using its wisdom to help you to feel your vital best every day.

Precious elements

Brauer blends mostly natural ingredients derived from plants and simple chemicals with a long history of traditional use that are thought to stimulate and strengthen the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Find out more about some of the most prized herbal ingredients that appear in our remedies.


Arnica Montana


Renowned for its anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties, Arnica is a perennial plant from the sunflower family found in the woods and mountain pastures of Central Europe and North America. The yellow flowers which contain a volatile oil are collected at the end of each summer and dried. Extracts of the flowers are traditionally used in creams and lotions to relieve muscle pains, injuries, strains and bruises.

Passion Flower


Elaborate and eye-catching Passion flower is an herbal remedy from the flowering and fruiting herb top of the plant Passiflora incarnata traditionally used for conditions related to sleeplessness, insomnia and nervousness. Interestingly, the name of the plant originates from its appearance rather than its purpose, based on a resemblance to the crown of thorns that Jesus wore during the ‘passion’.

German Chamomile


With medicinal usage known since ancient Egypt, German Chamomile is a well-known herbal remedy.  Recognisable through its distinctive aromatic odour, the plant features in countless perfume and aromatherapy products. This gentle and versatile flower has traditionally been used for relieving stressful states of restlessness, irritability and pains, particularly those experienced by babies and children, such as teething and colic.
