As much as we love spending a weekend at one of the many wellness and spa retreats around Australia, it’s not always (in fact, it’s rarely ever) possible. But that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge and relax at home.
Run a bath or light some candles, lock yourself away and put on some soothing music – you’re booked in for an uninterrupted #selfcare session. Doctors orders. To help make the spa-at-home experience all the more indulgent, why not include a few of these fabulous Aussie Made goodies?
Palm Beach Collection
A family owned and run Australian business, Palm Beach Collection creates beautiful hand-poured scented candles, reed diffusers and bath products in an array of fragrances, each inspired by Australia’s coastal landscape – in particular, Sydney’s Palm Beach; the place that shaped and defined the journey of the brand.
These artisan candles take inspiration from folkloric myths, legends and history. Wyspworks creates quality soy candles that aim to create scent experiences, hand-crafted in the Hunter Valley.
In 2001, Vanessa Gray Lyndon, founder and formulator of Vanessa Megan, was inspired by a comment from her best friend that ‘you should never put anything on your skin you wouldn’t eat.’ Studying the power of natural extracts and oils, she began creating skincare in Australia from natural, wild harvested and bio-available ingredients. 19 years on, Vanessa Megan Skincare, body and perfumes are trading in premium department stores internationally, and boasting the same efficacy results as iconic skincare brands.
