Want all your organic inner and outer beauty beloveds (and new discoveries) in one easy-to-access place? Of course you do! Well, look no further than The Organic Project.
It's a haven for the clean potion and lotion obsessed - now. instead of scouring several online and strip destinations, then obsessively breaking down the labels of brands you uncover, you can sleep and breathe easy by shopping at the first all-Australian apothecary.
All skincare, body care and internal beauty products are synthetic-free and safe for your skin and beauty cabinet - especially since they are not stocked alongside other chemically-laden products.
Brands on offer include The Beauty Chef, Indah Organics, DNA Elements, Jacqueline Evans, Aromantik and The Little Alchemist. And from all sales a percentage of the profit will be donated to Opportunity International Australia. OIA provides micro loans to women in developing countries enabling them to start their own small businesses.
For travelling I love Flight Skincare's Sheer Luxury Milk Cleanser that contains Quandong seed oil. Quandong trees are found in the arid regions of Australia and the oil is a wonderful healing treatment that repairs and soothes skin. The product also contains goats milk, camellia oil, and essential Ylang Ylang to improve blood circulation for a radiant healthy glow. RRP$37.
Surface Skincare's Kakadu Plum & Ylang Ylang Rejuvenating Cream will reduce fine lines and wrinkles in 2-4 weeks. The Kakadu Plum grows natively across the top end of Northern Australia, and is the richest source of Vitamin C known. The Kakadu Plum effectively improves the growth of new skin cells. RRP$54.90.

Gorgeous, all-natural product loving The Organic Project ambassador Emma Bridge shares her handbag must-haves with Health Bird.
I'm a Virgo so there's not much in my bag, I like to keep it light so only my daily essentials make the cut!! It's all about scents in there today...
Zara faux leather handbag: I love love this bag from Zara, my sunglasses are from there too.
Hanako Therapies spray: There are those moments in the day where I need to stop and take some deep breaths, and spray some of this. I am Bliss from Hanako Therapies is my go to stress reliever... it's great way to clear my mind and re-center.
Notebooks: I'm a bit old fashioned in that I enjoy hand writing some of my life, otherwise I might forget how to write!! So I carry my dairy (pink with green spots) and my daily notebook (white). My diary is from Joanie Loves Chachi in Woollahra and my note book was a gift.
Indah Sari Body Butter: One of my favorite all over body moisturizers and sometimes it make it into my bag as a hand cream. It has a scent of sandalwood and patchouli, two of my favs.
Book: I'm all about love, so there's no surprise that my favorite book of the moment is 'Enchanted Love' by Marianne Williamson. Can't stop reading it over and over again! It's a bit magical...
Perfume: I've been wearing essential oils as perfume for years, so it was so exciting to find One Seed. I’m loving their perfume called Courage; it smells like heaven with Ylang Ylang, magnolia and rosewood.... it is for integrity, quiet strength and inner beauty... They are 1000% natural and made in Australia, which I love.
Keys: Key chain from Joanie Loves Chachi in Woollahra.
