Not all stories about our farmers are shrouded in doom and gloom!
The Australian wholesale oils industry has seen substantial growth over the last ten years because of the push towards buying natural, organic products from local Australian farmers.
ABC News reported in 2018 that essential oils are quickly becoming liquid gold for Aussie farmers. More than 90% of Australia’s natural oils are being exported – think tea tree oil, lavender oil, sandalwood, and eucalyptus, along with other relatively unknown native ingredients, which is helping sustain this branch of our farming industry.
How great is that?
Let’s keep some of the oils in Australia
There’s no doubt that exporting their products to international buyers is big business for these farmers.
If you’re an Aussie who wants to keep some of the products within our borders, then there is a way that you can help.
One easy way is to avoid artificial additives and substances. Shop smarter by being avid label readers and looking at the inclusions within the products that you are choosing to purchase.
Stick with those brands that can demonstrate their products use Australian-grown ingredients.
One such brand is Cedar and Stone
Here at the Wholesome Gift Box we only curate products from suppliers who share our philosophy around offering only Australian-owned, healthy, and natural options.
Brands who are committed to making a difference to our environment.
One such brand is Cedar and Stone, which essentially evolved because of a saturated market of products labelling themselves as natural, when really, they weren’t.
The brand is passionate about creating real, honest products, with easy to understand ingredient lists. All ingredients are derived from either a vegetable, bark, flower, tree, herb, fruit, or seed.
And as a proudly registered company with Choose Cruelty Free, Cedar and Stone products are 100% vegan with zero animal testing.
How Cedar and Stone uses Australian oils
Their vegan and plant-based skincare range is backed by essential oils – Australian essential oils – and there’s a reason why their products receive hundreds of positive reviews online.
Their pure, natural, and clean blends are used in mists, oils, serums, tonics, masks, scrubs, creams, washes, and so much more.
If you’re looking for face, body, hair solutions using their Australian oil-based products, then you won’t be disappointed.
To complement their skincare range, they also offer room and body mists, cleanse bars, and essential oils.
The CEO of Cedar and Stone, Amelia Gartner, says “As passionate, driven women and dedicated mums here at Cedar and Stone, we deeply care about protecting and nurturing women and children in Australia.”
And the team does so by giving back to the i=Change charity. $1 from every sale goes into projects dedicated to restoring the reef, giving shelter, stopping child marriage.
