Kangaroo Island Wild Bushland Eucalyptus Bodycare Range Discontinued

**STOP PRESS** Maine Beach Eucalyptus Bodycare Range to be discontinued!

If you love these products for yourself or giving as gifts, buy up now! We have put them on SPECIAL & what we have in stock is all that’s available, so once there gone, they are gone forever!

It is regret that the Company that makes the Kangaroo Island Wild Bushland Eucalyptus Body care range has decided, its had its time! We only supply our Eucalyptus oil, he makes and markets this brand. It was first launched in 2012, its a lovely product beautifully packaged and we believe its been a great promotional tool for Kangaroo Island & for promoting our Eucalyptus Oil!

We have worked together with Nigel Treliving the founder of Maine Beach since 1993, he originally  owned a company called Trelivings founded in 1978  and he produced a Eucalyptus Body-care Range using our eucalyptus oil with this brand, later the company was sold in 2005 he later founded Maine Beach Company and developed a more natural Eucalyptus Body-care range in 2012. We thank him for the business, he has said it may evolve again! In the mean time it gives us an opportunity to  improve our own brand and packaging! 

Eucalyptus Body Care Range – This Beautifully packaged range is blended with freshly picked Emu Ridge Kangaroo Island Eucalyptus leaves, crushed bush mint and a hint of spice, this extensive body care range offers an uplifting assortment of botanical oils to counter the ageing process. Double distilled on Kangaroo Island in one of Australia’s oldest Eucalypt distilleries, the Eucalyptus oil is then infused with a floral bouquet of white rock orchid, lavender buds and ylang ylang blossom on a delicate base of vanilla pod and soft musk. The result is a sensual range of natural Australian-made products.

Free from parabens, mineral oil, sulphate and colourant. No products are tested on animals. A high percentage of components used in the manufacture of printed items come from recycled pulp. We use recycled and degradable components wherever cost and aesthetics permit.

This product will make a great gift for anyone. Phone Emu Ridge for the Maine Beach Wild Bushland Eucalyptus Body Care Range or use the website for orders!

Emu Ridge have a wonderful range of natural Australian produced products all available here
