Here at Blossom Gum Soapery, we are all about creating skincare products that are good for you and good for the planet. Our latest creation, Kunzea and Hemp Seed Oil Soap, has a story behind it that is close to our hearts. Let us look at why we chose these ingredients for our soap collection.

Kunzea ambigua, also known as tick bush, thrives along the coastal areas and adjacent plateaus of eastern Australia, including regions such as New South Wales, Victoria, and Tasmania. It’s frequently observed forming dense thickets in its natural habitat.

I have always been fascinated by Kunzea, a plant native to Australia. It has been used for centuries by Indigenous Australians for its healing properties. As I delved into the traditional uses of this native Australian plant by Indigenous communities, I could not help but be captivated by its versatility and efficacy.  That is why we knew it had to be a part of our soap collection—it is natural and effective, just like we strive to be.

Kunzea was traditionally utilised by Aboriginals for skin ailments.  The Kunzea leaves were often crushed and applied topically to soothe skin irritations, such as insect bites, cuts, bruises, and rashes. Its natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties helped to relieve discomfort and promote healing. Kunzea was used also to treat respiratory ailments, including coughs, colds, and congestion. It was either brewed into a tea or its aromatic leaves were inhaled to alleviate symptoms and support respiratory health.  Aboriginal communities also used Kunzea to ease muscle aches, joint pain, and stiffness. The leaves were sometimes infused into oils or balms and applied as a topical remedy for sore muscles and arthritis. 

Kunzea was valued not only for its physical healing properties but also for its ability to promote overall well-being. Its pleasant aroma was believed to have calming and uplifting effects, aiding in relaxation, and reducing stress.

In my exploration of natural skincare ingredients, hemp seed oil emerged as a true gem. Its nourishing qualities, combined with its sustainability and eco-friendliness, aligned perfectly with our commitment to ethical sourcing and environmental stewardship. Knowing that hemp seed oil possesses a composition that mirrors the lipids in our skin, I was inspired by its potential to deeply hydrate and rejuvenate, making it an essential addition to our formulations.

When the idea of combining Kunzea and hemp seed oil took root, I knew it was a match made in skincare heaven. Drawing upon the traditional wisdom of Kunzea and the skin-loving properties of hemp seed oil, we set out to create a soap that would embody the essence of Blossom Gum Soapery: natural, effective, and luxurious. Each step of the soap-making process was infused with intention and dedication, ensuring that our vision for this special creation was realised.

So, our Kunzea and Hemp Seed Oil Soaps were born.  Handcrafted with love and expertise, our soap captures the harmonious synergy between Kunzea and hemp seed oil, delivering a truly transformative experience for the skin and senses.  By carefully selecting the finest Kunzea essential oil and cold-pressed hemp seed oil, we’ve created a soap that embodies the purity and potency of nature, free from synthetic additives and harsh chemicals.  With its creamy lather and soothing aroma, our Kunzea and Hemp Seed Oil Soap invites you to indulge in a moment of self-care, reconnecting with the beauty of the natural world and nourishing your skin from within.
