How lucky am I to have come across Katrina’s handcrafted goodies on instagram. Such beautiful and natural items she makes. I’ve purchased a Bug Repellent Lotion Bar to help with my allergies to mosquitoes. All natural, made with such love and care. My online purchase was easy and packaged like a 💝 gift with a lil treat inside for me. A lovely shopping experience from a lovely lady Katrina 💁🏻♀️thank you and will most certainly spread the word and purchase again!

I'm Katrina MacAllan, Welcome!
Real quick, before you purchase anything from Apple & Radish, please know:
Our products are made especially for people who:
# Care about nature and the environment.
# Want all natural soaps that your skin will love.
# Love spoiling your family and friends with unique, handmade gifts they can't get anywhere else.
# Appreciate quality, creativity and beautiful things, regardless of the current trends in fashion.
# Love to shop small, shop handmade and shop beautiful.
# Are kind and playful with a wicked sense of humour.
# Prefer your soap like you prefer your men - natural, naked and hard! (Yep, I did just say that)
# Preferably have a scottish accent.
Our products are NOT for people who:
# Expect plastic wrapped, artificial-chemical-laden products
# Prefer cheap, mass-produced products over quality, handmade goods.
# Think that taking care of the environment, animals and disadvantaged people is a big pain in the butt and someone else's problem.
Now that we are on the same page, 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.
Are you noticing just how much WASTE there is in the world?There is so much plastic and throw away packaging. It's CRAZY!
Together we can make a difference!
You can have beautiful, natural and effective products without all the unecessary plastic packaging.
Our products are all natural and we aim to minimise packaging and waste as much as possible.
Everything is made by hand with natural ingredients.
There is a magic in homegrown and handmade things that you simply don't find in mass produced and highly packaged goods.

I hear you and that is exactly how I feel too! You are sooo in the right place, my dear!

A Little Bit About Me....
I hold qualifications in Biomedical Science and Naturopathy.
I come from a family of creatives. My father is an engineer and inventor, my mother an amazing seamstress, quilter and cook. (My four children are all incredibly creative and artistic too so it must be something in the blood!)
I have always loved to grow herbs, food and flowers and make things from scratch. Ever since I was a child I have been writing, sewing, mixing and making.
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.
Simple pleasures, like delightful handmade soap or a deluxe natural lip balm, add sweetness to life and create special moments in your day that make life richer and more meaningful.
I also know Life is sometimes HARD and we all could do with a little (or a lot) more creativity and kindness.
My wish is that everything you buy from Apple & Radish makes you feel a little more inspired, nourished and loved.
Open Tuesday to Friday 10 - 4 at 40 Southport Ave Tamborine Mountain QLD, Australia.
