Apple and Rhubarb is a small family run business operating out of a small country town called Bacchus Marsh in the West of Melbourne.
My name is Jade and We are a family of 5 including 3 beautiful little girls and one particularly proud dad. I have been a qualified division one nurse for over 10 years, working predominantly in paediatric care and have developed a special interest in the benefits of a Toxic Free lifestyle.
These days we are often very mindful about what we consume, but less so about what we put onto our skin and hair. Toxins are found in a multitude of things, many of which we consider harmless. These products include: cosmetics, deodorants, body washes, shampoos, conditioners, nail polishes, plastics and clothes. The skin is the largest organ in the human body so it is so essential that we are just as careful as to what we put on our body as what we put in it.
We at Apple and Rhubarb want to be able to make it easier for people to reduce the toxins in their lives, so we have put together a blog. Our Apple and Rhubarb blog contains many suggestions about small changes you could make in your lifestyle supported by a small hand-picked collection of products that will hopefully help you to begin your journey into a low toxin or no toxin lifestyle.
The products that we stock here at Apple and Rhubarb are just like the commercial products but without all the nasty chemicals that are often found in them. Products we stock include cosmetics, skincare, hair care, deodorant, insect repellant, children’s play makeup plus more.
We intend on keeping our business family orientated and the customer experience at the forefront. We encourage feedback and product reviews to improve the service we offer.
