HEAT WHEATS

By Chloe is a proud supporter of ‘One Tree Planted’. An association who plant 1 tree for every $1 donated. That is why I am donating $1 for every organic heat wheat sold to One Tree Planted. $1 = one tree. 1 heat wheat = 1 tree.

By purchasing an organic heat wheat you are helping create habitat corridors for Koalas, promote Australia’s biodiversity and restore areas in Australia affected by bushfires.

They have sold enough reclaimed fabric in their Haberdashery to stretch from Brisbane to Toowoomba. They have delivered over 800 workshops to teach women how to embrace handmade living to upcycle these resources  and thus begun to educate future generations of  an alternative to the cycle of consumerism.

Liz Harper, Lil'Bit Better, supplier

"9 years ago, my husband and I decided to try our hand at beekeeping and started our first hives at our weekender down on Phillip Island, Victoria. This led to a much deeper understanding of the ecosystem, ecology, and our effect on it; it was time to take some personal responsibility and make some big changes.

I've always dabbled in making my own lotions, potions, and cleaning products and herbal remedies. I even have my certification in Western Herbalism and thought, why not put my powers to good use while helping the environment!

Boom! Lil'Bit was born.

Just by changing a few habits, making different choices and swapping out a few everyday products had a huge impact.

At Lil'Bit.com.au you'll find a range of small batch, Australian made organic home & cleaning products using the best Australian Certified Organic, natural ingredients.

Lil'Bit is a team of me, myself, and I. All products are made by own hands, from raw ingredients, and packaged in the best sustainable, biodegradable and compostable packaging available in Australia.

Cruelty Free Accredited, Palm oil free and supporting local communities. We aim to be the best and most natural pure cleaning and home products out there"

Founder of Lil'Bit Better

"In 2019, I was gifted a sewing machine from my grandparents for Christmas. At the time I had no idea how to sew nor did I expect to receive a sewing machine! Throughout the years I would pull out my sewing machine and teach myself how to make various things such as a little skirt for my cousin and fabric coasters. After injuring myself while competing in a Touch Football competition, my mum gave me a heat wheat to help relieve the discomfort, this is where it all started! Whilst using the heat wheat I thought of how useful it would be if I was able to make my own style of these to help others too. After some research and trial and error, I purchased all the materials needed to make a heat wheat. I then started selling my heat wheats to family and friends and soon enough I had a long list of orders to fill. A few years later, I now have 8 stockists and attend various handmade markets. 

As part of my business studies at school, I was given the incredible opportunity to enter my business into the Future Anything Competition. After being successful in winning the semi-finals, I progressed to the grand finals where I pitched my business idea to a panel of 4 judges and 500+ people. That night, I was announced the 2021 National Future Anything Winner. This moment meant so much for me and my future business!"

I am super passionate and driven to help people in my own unique way.

“As a naturopath, traditional teas can do more harm than good so I wanted to raise the bar with premium, unprocessed teas made from organic ingredients – teas that would improve health, that people would genuinely love to drink. That’s was the original vision, and it still inspires me today.”

Today, Tea Tonic has over 30 blends, plus a loyal legion of fans who love the flavours and feel-good benefits. From promoting better sleep, to boosting immunity, or simply making people smile, Tea Tonic is helping thousands of Aussies feel better every day.
