GREG TREVENA Australian essential oil specialist (and grower)
Greg Trevena’s journey with Australian essential oils, started back in 1990 when the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission) television channel aired a documentary series called the ‘Bush Tucker Man’. This television series featured a retired Australian soldier who through the shared knowledge of Australian aboriginal people told European Australians about wild Australian plants people could use to survive in the remote and isolated ‘Australian Outback’.
So commenced a journey where Greg learned all he could about Australian native plants and their useful potential.
He started ‘Rainforest Foods’ in 1998, which then introduced him to Lemon Myrtle essential oil (now an approved essential oil in food flavoring). Greg started ‘Refreshed Lemon Myrtle’ in 2000, this brand became established in Australia and then in the USA. Greg sold both brands by late 2009. In 2012 he started ‘Essentially Australia’ a company which has developed the largest range of Australian essential oils in the world.
The most important part of this business, however, is the new Australian essential oil-bearing plants he has rediscovered and which he grows in his own plantation, just out of Byron Bay, an iconic coastal tourist town, which happens to be Australia’s most easterly point.

Hello natural beauties I hope all is well in your world. The weather in Sydney is trying to warm up, but very slowly. I went for a walk the other day in local suburban bushland, Garigal National Park, and saw some beautiful indigenous plants and flowers. Walk with me past the cascade …
Hello natural beauties I hope all is well in your world. Time keeps rolling on and we will soon find ourselves walking into a new season, unless you live in a tropical climate where its delicious all year round. Some of us love the winters, some of us love the summer, and some love the in-betweens. I’m a summer lover so anytime it’s getting warmer I’m happy. Here are a few recipes for your new season …
Ah yes the promise of spring is in the air! And my skin is looking dry and scaly from covering up all winter, having hot showers and being in heated environments. Here are a few recipes to bring yourself back to life:
**** Spring Body Oil
.For a coat of your body use 3 teaspoons of carrier oil in a little dish and, add 7 – 8 drops of essential oil. It’s always best to patch test first, before you apply all over.
** Always put the drops of essential oil into the bottle or dish first, then add the carrier oil. It gives the scents time to create a synergistic fusion.
After a good skin scrub with a body puff or your favourite scrub, lather yourself in this “Spring Has Sprung” blend:
Orange 4 drops
Rosemary 2 drops
Peru Balsam 3 drops
**** Spring Clay Face Mask
I Usually add 1 or 2 drops of oil to 2 teaspoons of clay, and add water, floral water or hydrosol. Keep the mask on for 5 minutes then rinse off with cool water. Mist with a hydrosol or floral water and moisturise.
Neroli 3% in jojoba 5 drops in yellow or pink clay * see my article for more info on 3% blends in jojoba
Orange blossom water and blend to a smooth paste
Magnolia in Sydney
**** Easy Spring Perfume
Pure Pulse Point Perfume
In a little dish mix these oils and anoint your pulse points or chakras – 3 drops of essential oils and dilute with a few drops of carrier oil – always patch test first!
Try a long soak in a warm bath then lavish this blend all over yourself:
Lavender 2 drops
Geranium 2 drops
Mandarin 4 drops
**** Autumn Face Hydration
Facial Oil Treatment
Mix one or two drops of essential oil in one teaspoon of carrier oil. You can warm the oil slightly first if desired – it will be very relaxing! Massage your face and rest for 10 minutes. You can also place a cool or warm wet facecloth on your face as a compress over the oil mask. Remove excess oil with a tissue or cloth if necessary.
Hello natural beauties and scent lovers from all over the world! I absolutely love juniper and often go through stages of wanting and needing it all the time. It’s crisp, clean and fresh and in aromatherapy is used as an astringent for oily skin, to help with joint pain and rheumatism, as a diuretic and can be seen as a gentle detoxifier. I often use juniper to cleanse and release heavy, watery emotions. It’s made from the gorgeous purple berries of the juniper bush – Juniperus communis.
And of course juniper’s real claim to fame is its integral part in gin. I have been known to accidentally ask for a “juniper and tonic” once (possibly twice) before.
There’s one thing for sure, this oil has a distinct and delightful scent, and here are some Australian perfumers and “noses” to give you their 3 word buzz on this unique oil.
So I’ll give you an extra hint – this oil is fantastic for lightening up your mood and detoxifying from negativity. It is cleansing and clearing and great to use in a perfume or oil blend to bring a sense of clarification. It is clean and crisp and blends well with so many other oils.
Hello natural beauties are you ready for the next new year? This Friday we usher in the most colourful of all new years – Chinese New Year. I’ve always loved the style and designs of this celebration, and love the zodiac even more. What’s in store for you this year, and which oils will be best to support you as you navigate the ups and downs of life in 2018?
Are you born in the Year of the Dog? You’re a winner baby, this is your year. To find out which is your animal zodiac, check out this link.
About the Dog Year
The dog is the 11th zodiac animal out of 12 so we are in the autumn stages of the cycle. To be specific this year is the year of the Brown Earth (Mountain) Dog. Next year we move into the first water sign, but for now, this is a year to look after your friends and family. Stay true and loyal to those around you, and try your best to embrace empathy and togetherness with your brothers and sisters around the world.
This is not a year to be selfish and put yourself above others, if you do it will backfire and you will not have flow and harmony in your life. This year is a good time to pay attention to your health, and you may even feel inclined to have a more conservative approach in your everyday life. The dog year is very oriented to work, and everything around it. Learning new skills and working with others are big themes this year.
This is a year of solidarity!
