Often, the best way to show your support is to open your wallet. I've pulled together a collection of Indigenous brands and artists who create wonderful things for you to enjoy.

Explore the list, maybe follow them on your fave platform and the next time you're shopping, consider supporting these guys instead.

Here we go:

Earth Blended

For those who seek alternative remedies, the essential oil blends of Earth Blended come highly recommended. Jame, a gumbaynggirr woman, was inspired to create blends from research and a little magic that has been passed down from generations.

These oil blends were crafted to aid your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing and come in lovely amber-coloured glasses with options for grown-ups, children, pregnant women and gorgeous self care options like body scrubs, linen sprays and massage oil.

As Liandra says, “Our swimwear line was created with the desire to allow a new way for non-Indigenous people to connect with Aboriginal culture, through fashion. Each of our pieces are named after inspiring Indigenous Australian women from around the nation.”
