Meet the Maker | Ozybushgirl

This month we chatted with Jody of Ozybushgirl about her unique products – available at Handmade in the Hunter Markets. Try them out for yourself – markets will be held at Sobels Wines from 9am until 2pm on Saturdays - 19 and 26 August and 2, 9 and 16 September.


We love the name of your stall - how did you come up with it?

The name came about as I've worked as a Bush Regenerator for over 15 years, plus my love of all things plants and our beautiful natural bush.

Can you please tell us a bit more about your products?

My products all share the goal of helping my customers (and their pets) deal with common ailments. For example, my Calendula Salve is a versatile ointment tough enough to take on the most debilitating of skin conditions but also gentle enough for our children and pets; it is a miracle product that gives relief to so many people.

I grow my own Calendula flowers and infuse them into oil, clean my own wax from local apiaries, and then add beautiful ingredients from all over Australia, such as lanolin, coconut oil, apricot kernel oil and tea tree oil. Unlike other calendula products, my unique blend leaves the skin feeling like velvet and with no greasy residue.

Who are your products created explicitly for?

Calendula products treat ailments like eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, cold sores, burns, and more. They are safe for external use from head to toe or in soap.

Pet Calendula benefits dogs with foot biting, grass irritation, and ringworm and horses with rain scald, greasy heel, and dandruff.

Beetlejuice Insect Repellent, a blend of essential oils and demineralised water, deters mosquitos, flies, leeches, ticks, and bull ants with a pleasant chai latte fragrance. Calendula's exceptional healing abilities have made it my go-to remedy for decades.
