HELPING CHILDREN IN NEED
At Base Essentials we are passionate about BEING GOOD, TOGETHER; our philanthropic program working towards achieving our mission; a happy, healthy and connected world we can all be proud of. In partnership with Eat Up Australia, every order $100 and over donates to this extremely worthy, local cause to assist children in need.
WHAT IS ‘EAT UP’
Eat Up is an organisation that is working to help feed disadvantaged school children. One in 3 Australian students experience food scarcity. Lack of proper nutrition directly affects physical and mental health, which has a multitude of impacts on a child's schooling, and their ability to keep up with their peers. A recent survey showed that 62% of schools reported most, if not all, students required the help of Eat Up due to family hardship and financial struggle.
HOW DO THEY HELP?
The work that Eat Up does improves a students ability to concentrate and participate in the class room by 75%, boosting confidence and improving their overall learning experience. Eat Up lunches were reported to improve overall school attendance by 40%. Over 400,000 sandwiches were donated to schools across Australia in 2021, meaning that 400,000 students nationwide had access to a nutritional lunch who might otherwise have had to go without.
HOW IT WORKS
We understand the importance of improving the quality of schooling for young children, and working towards ending the food scarcity issue in Australia. For every order over $100 and over, Base Essentials will donate $5 to Eat Up. This supplies pays for 5 sandwiches, and feeds 5 school kids in need, or provides a whole week of lunches for one student.
To put it into perspective, by buying one Base Essential Ultrasonic Ceramic Diffuser ($100), one BASE kit ($128), or 3-4 of our oils can feed a hungry student for one week.
Our partnership with Eat Up is a simple yet incredibly purposeful contribution to our Australian community, helping our younger generations to flourish into bright futures.

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"
