Buy from the Bush this Christmas &
Special offer #2 for Brisbane Finders Keepers attendees


There have been so many supportive initiatives created by everyday people to support rural and regional businesses during this ongoing drought. We really appreciate everyone who sends us messages and shares regional our social media posts - your thoughtfulness doesn't go unnoticed.

Here are a few of our favourite ideas for supporting the bush this Christmas:
  • Bush Christmas - This annual exhibition is held every November/December in Toowoomba. There is a wide range of curated vendors (including us!) who send their hand-crafted wares. Wednesday 27 November - Friday 6 December, Masonic Centre, 58 Neil Street, Toowoomba.
  • Buy from the Bush is an Instagram and Facebook campaign highlighting rural businesses with great Christmas gift ideas.
  • Wine into Water is an initiative of several Granite Belt wineries that are donating profits into water relief efforts in the region.  A six-pack of local wine makes a wonderful Christmas present.
  • Art for Bales - this Instagram campaign had artists from across Australia donating their work to raise money for Rural Aid. 


Wow! We couldn't predict how popular our inaugural advent calenders would be! Thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered one already. They're currently being wrapped by our elves and will start being sent on November 1. It's not too late to order one - but we do have limited stock, so get in quick.

The cypress trees that lined our driveway have fallen to the dry conditions. Warren is out clearing the dead trees away and preparing the ground for these lovely Strawberry Gums that we're going to plant in their place. 

The Strawberry Gum leaves are very aromatic - some say strawberry and others say passionfruity.  Either way, once the trees get some growth we'll distill some of the leaves to create floral waters to use in our products.  

We have also witnessed how hungry the bees have been in the drought so we will also plant and tend some Jellybush (aka manuka) and other flowering natives to help create a food source for them in future. While we're sad to see the Cypress die, we're very happy to be transitioning to plants that are suited to our environment and provide food and habitat for wildlife. 

We purchased these plants from the new Gunimaa Bush Tucker Nursery in Tenterfield. 

The Washpool Difference

Washpool is a small rural soaperie in Ballandean, Queensland. We believe in being small enough to listen and being big enough to deliver. We believe in hand made and we take pleasure in providing meaningful employment to people living in our rural community. 

We take a minimalist approach to handcrafting our soap bars. Wholesome ingredients, purposefully selected. We believe that health comes first and beauty follows. Our 
clients value authenticity, simplicity and purity.

Wherever possible, we choose to source our ingredients locally, often direct from the growers.  When we purchase ingredients from further afield we place great emphasis on using ethical, organic, fair trade and sustainably produced raw ingredients. Our packaging is biodegradable, recycled and recyclable where possible.

Our products include cold pressed edible oils,
butters and milks, extracts, infusions, activated and whole botanicals along with clays, honey, fruit and vegetables. Basically, ingredients
you can recognise, most of which are edible.
