As a mother of two, Pip Guyatt started experimenting with making homemade, natural soaps in order to reduce the skin irritations suffered by her eldest son. The results were amazing, and soon Pip began receiving orders from family and friends, and eventually from retail outlets.
Dindi Naturals is now renowned for making natural soaps and body products that contain NO toxic or synthetic chemicals; and that derive environmentally-friendly ingredients from areas of fair trade and sustainability.
Pip’s base is in the mountainous north-east region of Victoria, Australia, known as the Murrindindi Shire – hence the name Dindi. The location is as natural as her products, so when you use a cake of Pip’s soap, you feel the freshness of the Murrindindi, and the overall vitality of beautiful Australia.
There are vast areas of high country land with stunning scenic beauty. What are you waiting for? Pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic in the bush. In the centre of the township, behind the Yarck Hotel is the Yarck Recreation Reserve. Here you will find toilets, BBQ facilities and an undercover children’s playground coming from Melbourne if you turn right at the main intersection in Yarck and drive about 800m up the dirt road, you will come to the very old and historic Yarck old cemetery.
