  1. We're a finalist!

    We are still in a little bit of shock that we got short-listed as a finalist in the Australian Made category of the GALA Gift & Life Instyle Awards! We submitted our new 500ml Tropical Good Riddance Mozzie & Midgie Mousse. To enter the Australian Made Category, we had to enter a product that is ~ "Both designed and manufactured...
  2. Why we love what we do

    Our camping spot at Sandy Way near Uluru When I was working in manufacturing, one of the improvement tools we used was called 5Whys. You basically ask “Why?” 5 times (or more) until to get to the root cause of an issue. It’s a very powerful tool that allows you to dig deep into an issue. I decided to try...
  3. Get rid of mosquitos naturally

    We have received incredible feedback from customers using our Ultrasonic Diffuser to repel mosquitos with our Good Riddance Mozzie Essential Oil Blend. It can be used inside by plugging into a phone charger (it has a USB plug) or used outdoors with a portable battery pack (available at places like Big W). It is highly effective in diffusing the insect...
  4. Growing Ban on Triclosan

    Japan is one of a growing number of countries to ban Triclosan, a common chemical found in everyday personal care products like anti-bacterial handwashes/gels and toothpaste. The decision follows the US, with the FDA finding that triclosan was no more effective at preventing the spread of illness than washing hands with soap and warm water. Research indicates that Triclosan is a...
  5. Fragrance and Toxicity

    There is growing awareness about the toxicity of fragrances in our everyday personal care products. Kate Grenville, an acclaimed Australian author, has just released a book about her investigation into fragrances, The Case Against Fragrance. It is now well established that phthalates, which are the component of synthetic fragrances which make them last longer, are endocrine (hormone) disruptors and can potentially...
  6. Diluting essential oils safely

    Essential oils are a 100% natural, non-toxic fragrance and have renowned therapeutic benefits. There are many ways to use essential oils other than vapourising in an essential oil burner or ultrasonic diffuser (although this is a wonderful way to use them!). You can develop your own sprays or oils to use for different purposes. For example, many of our customers dilute...
  7. Babies' skin and sensitivities

    It is a little known fact that babies' skin is still forming for at least three months after birth. It is not yet a proper barrier under this age and it is for this reason we recommend that as little as possible is applied directly on babies' skin. The skin of babies differs from adult skin in several ways and has a greater...
  8. Toxicity and Candles

    Scented candles have become a staple, go-to gift idea. They are renowned for their mood enhancing and emotionally soothing benefits, as well as creating a lovely ambient atmosphere. The truth is however, that most commercially produced candles contain substances that when burned, may emit small amounts of toxins such as acetone, benzene, lead and mercury, polluting the air in your home...
