Newsletter - 18th November 2023

Happy weekend to you 🙂



Christmas Gift Ideas


We have lots of items that would make great gifts at any time of the year. Unique Health Products carry a lot of them, and the order will be opening next week on the 25th November. More on that next week, but with over 2,000 products in the order, there is bound to be something for pretty much anyone! It includes chocolates, reusable drink bottles, tumblers and coffee mugs in interesting colours and patterns, gift packs of seeds, travel cutlery sets in designer tins, and much more!


Another great gift idea this year is the calendars supporting FOP Australia.


We’re supporting FOP Australia in selling their 2024 Fundraising Calendars for the next month leading up to Christmas. Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) is one of the rarest, most disabling genetic conditions known to medicine, causing bone to form in muscles (and other soft tissue) throughout the whole body leading to ongoing and permanent restriction of movement.


It is a progressive disease and there is no cure.


We are supporting FOP Australia because, apart from it being a great cause, one of our members has a son living with FOP, so it is close to our hearts.


These 2024 wall calendars are A4 size and each month includes wildlife images taken by Jack, who is 17 years old and lives with FOP. Jack was the inaugural recipient of the Oliver Collins Education Grant in 2023, and used the grant to continue to build his photography skills. Jack travelled over 8300 kilometres through remote parts of Australia along rough dirt roads, through amazing scenery and rainforests - all the way to the most Northern point of Australia in Cape York. He was able to photograph some amazing wildlife that are showcased in this year’s calendar.


You can buy calendars through the Orders page (look for the ‘FOP Fundraiser’ link) or directly on the FOP Fundraiser page on our website.


The price includes postage and covers some of our Stripe fees. If you want to buy the calendars directly from FOP instead, you can do so on their website https://fopaustralia.org/


You can follow Jack's journey and his photography on his Facebook and Instagram pages.


Orders Permanently Open


A reminder that the following orders are always open and available for purchase:


  • Mango Fundraiser - this will be open until the Fills trays sell out. More information can be found in the 2nd September Newsletter.

  • Cheeky Monkey - Heat bags made from 100% cotton fabric and thread, with removable, washable covers. They contain corn instead of wheat, making them suitable for people with wheat allergies. You can read more about them on the product pages;

  • Olive and Bee Intimate Cream - recommended by one of our members who has been using it for a couple of years. It has uses as a moisturiser and massage oil as well as a personal lubricant. It has two ingredients - olive oil and beeswax - and is Australian made and owned by a small business. We have some tester tubes coming soon. You can read more about it on the product page;

  • There are always items available in Fills. Fills are important because they let us buy items in bulk (by the carton) so we can continue to get big discounts, but items do need to keep moving through there to keep us financially viable 🙂 So if you need anything, or want to treat yourself to something (there’s always cheese!) head over and check out Fills.



Orders Currently Open


The following orders are currently open (links open each order page):

  • GF Precinct - local, handmade gluten-free breads, wraps, dinner rolls, burger buns, pizza bases, bread crumbs and cakes, using locally-milled stone ground buckwheat and organic besan (chickpea) flours. Their products are preservative-free;

  • émotions - bamboo and recycled toilet paper, tissues and paper towels, including a range made in Melbourne (remember that if you have never tried their products before, you can buy samples (individual rolls) of the four different toilet paper types they offer at any time from Fills or from the émotions shop page). émotions is a Melbourne-based social enterprise, run by women and donating 50% of profits to mental health organisations; and

  • Eggs - certified pastured, free range eggs, fresh from Thriving Foods Farm, an organic regenerative farm in Koo Wee Rup.



Temporary Change to Bass River Dairy Order


A reminder that the Bass River Dairy order will be open fortnightly for the foreseeable future. It will open in the same week as the other dairy and fridge/freezer goods supplier (Blue Pumpkin). It will open next Friday.
