WE CARE DEEPLY ABOUT THE PLANET AND CREATING A BUSINESS THAT GIVES BACK TO NATURE & COMMUNITIES HERE IN AUSTRALIA AND AROUND THE WORLD.
At Base Essentials we are absolutely, positively, 100%, passionate about BEING GOOD, TOGETHER. Our philanthropic programs work towards our mission of a happy, healthy and connected world we can all be proud of.
Reflected in our ethos of ‘beauty in simplicity’ we believe that by making good decisions, one at a time, day by day, we can all work together on the journey to a better world that can be enjoyed for generations to come.
BEING GOOD, TOGETHER allows us to contribute to worthy causes on your behalf, connecting you to purposeful local and global initiatives, simply by being a part of our Base Essentials community.
Using natural, pure plant derived products is a great way to improve our own individual wellness. We want you to feel your best ‘you’. But we didn’t want to stop there. We wanted to think of ways that we could improve the world we lived in from sourcing, to packaging to just finding ways to help each other. We aren’t perfect, but we wanted to be a force for good, supporting a circular economy and pushing ourselves and our partners to become better.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. Reforestation is consistently identified by scientists as one of the top solutions to the climate crisis and the trees planted as part of this initiative will support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
For every order you make, we plant a tree with One Tree Planted; environmental action with a movement of change-makers focused on positivity and hope. All by planting trees!
We were shocked to learn that one in five Australian kids experiences food scarcity. This leads to poorer health, social & emotional wellbeing, nutrition and impacts on a child’s ability to concentrate, learn and succeed in school.
For every order $100 and over, we also donate to Eat Up, providing school lunches to hungry children in need to help them learn, grow and succeed.
This donation equates to 5 lunches for 5 hungry children in need, or 5 day's worth of lunches for one child.
Acknowledging that the earth is a gift that we need to protect and preserve, our focus is on minimising resources in production and packaging, using materials that are made from recycled materials and working to ensure waste can easily be used again through local recycling efforts, ideally in your home recycling bin. Although not perfect, we continue to push suppliers and manufacturers that can support our focus here so we can use less and help you recycle more.
Our most exciting development in recent months has been finding a bottle that has been recycled from curb side plastic that you put back into your recycling bin. Using recycled plastic results in 79% lower carbon dioxide emissions when compared to virgin PET and other virgin materials.
Don't take our word for it
Be Sleepy Pure Essential Oil Blend
"This soothing and relaxing aroma helps to create the BEST sleep environment! I put a few drops in my diffuser 30 minutes before I go to sleep and my room smells divine! To level up the experience I add a drop or 2 to the ends of my hair and I am in a deep sleep in no time! New night time go-to!"
Be sleepy Pure Essential Oil Blend
"As a working mother of two boys, good deep sleep is often an issue- getting to sleep can be a challenge as I am always thinking ahead to all the things I need to get done the next day. Sometimes I will even wake myself up with my busy mind. The first two nights I diffused ‘be sleepy’, I got to sleep quickly and actually stayed asleep until the next morning! Just walking into my room while the oil was diffusing instantly relaxed me, thereby setting me up for a great nights sleep."
Be Calm Pure Essential Oil Blend
"WOW! This product lives up to it's name and it's definitely a new favourite in my house! I found this beautiful calming blend is perfect to use throughout a stressful work day or even after work, when I need to unwind. It's subtle yet fresh aroma means you can use it all day round!"
Personal Care Range
"After using the base essentials body products (body wash, shampoo and conditioner) I'm super impressed by the quality. Not only do these products smell amazing, they work well and I love knowing that each product uses high quality ingredients and essential oils. Would definitely recommend to others, especially being an Australian business."
Be Focused Pure Essential Oil Blend
"This oil blend helped me get through a crazy day at work. I had meetings from 8:30am till 5pm with only a 10 minute break for a quick walk around the block at lunch time. With so many meetings it was becoming increasingly hard to concentrate. To help me, I would smell ‘be focused’ between meetings. It really helped to bring me back to the present moment and concentrate on what I was doing, helping me to be more productive and get through a challenging day."
"I love this product! As a tall person often I find myself using a massive amount of lotion to cover my body, arms and legs so I was very pleasantly surprised to see how far a small amount went. This lotion not only absorbed quickly and made my skin feel beautiful and smooth, it also smells incredible! Who needs expensive perfume when you can smell that good from lotion?"
Be Calm Pure Essential Oil Blend
"Be Calm essential oil blend was divine!!! I used it with my Himalayan Salt Lamp Diffuser and found the scent refreshing (sweet orange) and relaxing (ylang ylang) and only a small amount of drops filled the whole house with a beautiful scent!!!"
Be Happy Pure Essential Oil Blend
"A refreshing fruity smell that filled the home with a freshness that would make anyone’s mood lift, it was a quality essential oil that only needed a few drops added to a diffuser to offer such a full and fabulous aroma in a large room"
Be-Reathe Deeply Pure Essential Oil Blend
"With lots of allergies requiring multiple methods to reduce congestion, I found the breathe easy great, I was using less decongestants, only needed a small amount for the full effect, quite a strong aroma but I didn’t mind that"
