I'm Katrina MacAllan, Welcome to Apple & Radish!
Does your heart break to see so much plastic, waste and general craziness in the world? Me too! So many people are stressed out and suffering.... I'm doing something about it. I'm busily making beautiful things to soothe your soul and lift your spirits.
There is a magic in homegrown and handmade things that you simply don't find in mass produced and highly packaged goods.
You know what I'm talking about, don't you? A soul-soothing, uplifting quality that makes your heart sing.
You love beautiful things and you love buying unique and lovely gifts for your friends and loved ones.
But you don't want all the plastic and waste and rubbish that often goes along with store bought things. You want to know that you are not destroying the planet and that you are helping to create a kinder, better world.
Well you are in the right place, my dear.
You can have beautiful things without destroying the planet, that are good for your body, soul and spirit too!
That's a win-win in my book!
Here at Apple & Radish you'll find beautiful handmade and eco-friendly gifts and goodies that are as good for Mother Nature as they are for you.
Handmade soaps (made without palm oil!), natural body products (made with pure, simple and natural ingredients), zero waste gifts to help you reduce single use plastics (in style) and lots more....
My products are made by hand in small batches on Tamborine Mountain, Queensland, Australia. I use little to no packaging and definitely no single-use-plastic. The packaging I do use is either made from recycled materials, is recyclable and/or re-useable.
Unlike most commercial soap, I refuse to use palm oil in my handmade soap..because I think it's criminal to chop down precious rainforests to smell nice! There are plenty of beautiful and sustainable alternatives to nourish our bodies. Like avocado oil, shea butter, olive oil and sweet almond to name a few.
APPLE & RADISH PRODUCTS ARE:
Made with love and locally sourced ingredients as much as possible.
Zero palm oil.
Zero toxic chemicals.
No single use plastics.
I am passionate about all things handmade and homegrown because they soothe the soul and lift the spirits in this fast paced world. They connect us to each other and to the Earth. And they remind us to slow down and savour the simple things.
I believe simple pleasures, like delightful handmade soap or a deluxe natural lip balm, are a MUST because they add sweetness to life and make it worth living.
Because I get that life is sometimes HARD and we all could do with a little (or a lot) more kindness.
Our products contain pure essential oils and natural skin-loving ingredients like natural clays and herbal infusions. We are keen organic gardeners and use our own flowers, herbs and produce when we can.
We aim to make everything as beautiful and delightful to your senses as possible.
