Getting out of bed in the morning marks the beginning of a new day, but it can be an excruciating start for people with plantar fasciitis — one of the most common causes of heel pain in adults¹.

Plantar fasciitis is a disorder of the connective tissue which supports the arch of the foot. It results in pain in the heel and bottom of the foot that is usually most severe with the first steps of the day or following a period of rest².

Some people may also refer plantar fasciitis to jogger’s heel or heel spur syndrome. About 50%…


Lemon is a fresh, invigorating, and cleansing citrus fruit that can help bring warmth, vitality, and energy into your life. Just like drinking warm water with the juice of half a freshly squeezed lemon first thing in the morning is a great way to aid digestion and boost immunity, diffusing Lemon Essential Oil in an aroma diffuser can assist with detoxifying and cleansing the body and soul.

Lemon Essential Oil is extracted through cold pressing the peel of the lemon fruit and is pale to deep yellow in colour. …


Cases of gout date back to the Ancient Egyptians, making it one of the world’s oldest recorded diseases. It was once named “the rich man’s disease” or “king’s disease” as it was linked to the “rich” diet — heavy in meat and alcohol — associated with wealth many years ago¹.

Today, gout progression is linked with diet, weight, stress, and injury. Without treatment, gout will generally get worse and flare ups may be triggered by certain factors.

Let’s take a look at what gout is defined as, what causes it and some suggestions on how you may be able to…


The joy of essential oils is that there are SO many combinations you can blend to evoke a certain mood or vibe for your space.

The olfactory system links our sense of smell to the brain and other organs in the body, which is how we can use essential oils to calm our mind, energise or relax us, depending on the oils we choose. As we inhale the different aromas, it can activate different parts of our brain and different organs as well!

It can be a little overwhelming, especially if you’re just getting started, and we love experimenting to…


The Cajeput tree, or Melaleuca cajuputi, is native to eastern Australia, Myanmar (Burma), New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, and the East Indies¹. From the same genus as the Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree), distilling the leaves of the Cajeput tree create an essential oil that is fresh and fruity.

Cajeput Essential Oil is refreshing and uplifting, particularly during the winter months. In this article we are going to delve into the history of Cajeput Oil and how it has been traditionally used.

Honey has been used throughout time as both a natural sweetener and for its medicinal purposes. In fact, honey is recorded as the oldest sweetener and has been widely accepted and used across generations and civilisations¹.

As sugar and other sweeteners have become more accessible, honey remains a favourite that withstands the test of time and — with good reason — the health benefits and versatility of honey cannot be argued.

And, if you’re looking for a delicious honey, you really don’t need to look any further than our Pure Tasmanian Kunzea Honey.

As Spring is here, we can instinctively start feeling ready to start preparing for the warmer months — spring cleaning is a thing for a reason!

This might look like doing a full clean and declutter at home, rearranging and refreshing furniture, changing our winter habits and routines to embrace the changing season, and feeling more energised and inspired.

Embracing and moving with the seasonal cycles can be really great for our mental health and more aligned with our nature than trying to continue on at one pace all year round.

Spring is the perfect time to do a gentle…


Clove Bud Essential Oil is water-distilled from the Clove tree, Syzygium aromaticum, and has a strong aroma that blends well with other warming essential oils.

It seems no matter who you talk to, everyone has an opinion about baths. Either they LOVE them, or they haven’t had a bath since they were five — there doesn’t seem to be an in between.

Baths can be a relaxing way to wash away the day, while soaking up minerals and nutrients the body needs to replenish after a busy day. But that doesn’t mean you should miss out just because you don’t have (or enjoy) a bath.

Benefits Of Using Bath Salts

Bath salts are not just relaxing, they can support the body in so many ways due to the inclusion of…


Coastal Tea Tree is a unique variety of the myrtle family and when we sampled this new essential oil while visiting Flinders Island, we were mesmerised by its sweet, citrus and earthy scent.

Many people are put off by traditional Tea Tree, as it has quite a harsh, medicinal scent.

Coastal Tea Tree is very different. It is beautifully refreshing and has a much softer aroma, while retaining many of the traditional therapeutic benefits of Tea Tree. We are sure you will agree with us when you try it!
