About Us

Our Vision, Purpose and Story

 

We are a small family business located in Grafton, in the Northern Rivers area of NSW, Australia.
We began with a concept to offer quality natural products that aligned with the values of being palm-free, cruelty-free, ethical, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly.
In sourcing our supplies, products and stock, we support other local Australian businesses that offer quality products.
But more than just operating an eco-friendly friendly business, we wanted to take it a step further and really try to contribute to something meaningful. We searched for a way we might be able to do this, and that's when we found Carbon Neutral.
We have now partnered with Carbon Neutral to create a program that allows us to fund tree planting in a meaningful way. We have pledged to plant trees with 3% of our sales. That means every time you shop with us you are planting trees!
More detailed information about our Plant-A-Tree Program can be found here.
Our Petal & Spice products are handmade with quality ingredients. We will never use any ingredients that are tested on animals, and our products will always be cruelty-free and palm-free.
Many candles, soaps and other beauty products on the market today are made with palm oil containing ingredients, and sadly palm oil deforestation is a leading cause to the destruction of forests in Borneo and Sumatra, which is the main reason orangutans are threatened with extinction. Although there are claims that some palm oil is produced sustainably, we believe that it is not easy to verify the standards of these claims and therefore it is best to avoid it altogether. For this reason, our products will never contain any palm oil.
Another important goal for us was to avoid plastic packaging and make shopping zero-waste with us easy. Sustainability is something we take very seriously. We are all about 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle'. All our items packaging will either be reusable and recyclable, or biodegradable and compostable.
And finally, we are totally on board with being a bit extra sometimes, and we wanted to create a luxury product range that doesn't compromise on quality or wellbeing or the health of our planet.
We have grown to offer a wide range of products that we hand craft ourselves! From candles and soaps, to skincare and cleaning, we make a variety of natural products in small batches with so much love and care!
We now have our own physical store in the heart of Prince Street, Grafton NSW.
