Over the past few months, together with some of our incredible GiveBack Ambassadors, we’ve been at the Homeless Connect Events in Brisbane and on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. They’ve been epic days, full of doing what we do: providing access to health and wellness treatments for homeless and vulnerable people. In total, we provided almost 100 treatments at these events.
Homeless Connect events bring together business and community groups at one-day events to give free services to people experiencing homelessness or those at risk of homelessness. We’ve been involved in Homeless Connect events for almost as long as we’ve been around! Check out our video from Homeless Connect on the Gold Coast to find out more.

The feedback we receive is profound and always tricky to capture the depths of the impact we have. The healing power of touch, connection, community, feeling and being heard and valued, love and essential oils from Sydney Essential Oil Company made for truly magical days.
“There was a woman who had fled domestic violence the day before she received a treatment from us. Without looking at any of the labels, she chose the Asylum blend of essential oils to take with her – a powerful moment to witness.”
“One man actually walked differently and many experienced immense relief from pain.”
