In the big competitive world we live today we have big brand after big brand thrown in our faces. So many of us profess to loving a good ol’ local Aussie brand and want to do what we can to support them but it can be so hard to find them.
I have recently come across a couple of beautiful Aussies brands that are creating gorgeous products that I feel the world should hear about.
Ariel’s World was created by Raylene, Mum to Ariel, who minutes after she was born was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Ariel’s World hand craft candles and lip balms with some of the proceeds going to Down Syndrome NSW and LifeStart NSW. The candy cane lip balm is a must try with it’s cute packaging and mint and candy apple flavour.

Oh So Coco
From Oh So Coco you will find luxurious Coconut bath and body products created by Sarah. I’ve got to say, these products are divine! The Coconut and Lavender milk bath, containing Epsom Salts, coconut milk powder and lavender essential oil is perfect after a long day or just for a little “me time”.
The chocolate lip balm is like a heavenly treat that nourishes your lips. Made with virgin coconut oil, white beeswax and cocoa powder – delicious!
But my favourite product from this gorgeous Aussie brand has to be the Coco Fresh Natural Deodorant. With only 5 ingredients plus essential oil this is a simple but powerful deodorant. Unlike a lot of natural deodorants made with Bicarbonate Soda this deodorant is in a stick making the application clean and easy and the Lavender, Lemongrass, Peppermint & Lime Essential Oils offer a beautifully fresh scent.
Aromatherapy with Sarah
It is obvious that Sarah, a qualified Aromatherapist, has a true passion for essential oils and all that they can offer.
To get you started I recommend the “Nurture” blend. A beautiful mix of Frankincense, Roman Chamomile, Jasmine, and Neroli. As with all the blends it arrives pre – diluted in a carrier oil. The results you can expect from the Nurture blend is a feeling of calm and warmth and the scents soothe and relax you.

I’m sure I am a Mozzie’s favourite snack. I never feel the attack but am covered in insanely itchy bites the morning after an evening sitting outside.
Swivels have created a band that has a discreet little pocket that can then hold “pellets” containing a blend of Citronella, Peppermint, Geranium and Lavender – perfect for keeping those pesky mozzie’s at bay.
The band can be worn around the ankle or wrist and is waterproof so no need to be removed when swimming.
I love My Mates
Anna, the same lovely lady that bought us Wooly Mates Wool Dryer Balls, has now created Eco Mates Cleaning products. All the ingredients are plant and earth based, 100% biodegradable and non toxic. With everything from your Toilet Scrub to Marble Paste, you won’t be disappointed with these effective cleaners.
My favourite would have to be the All Purpose Spray On, Wipe Off Spray. It is a powerful degreaser, has an added sanitiser and all the ingredients have selected to ensure safety around small children.
Another one worth mentioning is the Herbal Floor Cleaner. With a fresh scent of lemon myrtle, pine and thyme essential oils it is antibacterial while also being highly concentrated, PH neutral and residue free.
This is an Aussie brand that I am sure is on the road to great success.
I don’t know about you but I have been feeling the chill a bit here in Sydney lately. With Winter fast approaching it’s nearly time to dig out those warm clothes and blankets.
If your anything like me you have a mild panic at this stage at how unexciting your winter essentials might be. Don’t worry, I have sorted out your problem of boring socks, or at least Get Socked have.
With design names such as Space Invaders and Twister, these socks are sure to brighten up your dull winter days. What makes Get Socked even more exciting is that you can subscribe and get a new pair of socks delivered straight to your letterbox each month!
These socks are made from Bamboo which is the ideal material for a sock as it draws up any liquid so keeps feet more comfortable.
Although not strictly an Aussie brand as Karen Murrell Lipsticks are based in New Zealand they are however manufactured in Australia. You may have heard me mention Karen Murrell before but as she has recently bought out some lip pencils to compliment her lipsticks (check out my review here) I couldn’t help but add her to the list.
All Karen Murrell products are free from coal tar, triclosan, BBP’s, parabens, mineral oils and petroleum origin waxes and oils but instead made from beautiful ingredients such as jojoba seed oil, candela and carnauba wax.
