April 2019 Hello! I found your soap at the Olinda Collective and absolutely adore it. I have never used anything as nice - it is a treat every time I shower. Thank you!
April 2018 Hi! I bought a few little luxury items from you at the Halls Gap markets last weekend and I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the products I got. I got some beautiful soaps, lip balm and moisture cream and they are just lush. I'm so happy that you are dedicated to making and providing natural products. So, thank you and expect to see me again for more! Rachel.
Nov 2017 I purchased one of your shampoo bars at the recent St Thomas church market and just wanted to tell you that I love it to bits. I’ve been able to check out your website and have just sent an order for other products. I feel I’ve found the best the pure and the beautiful and look forward to receiving the items.
Thanks so much for sharing your lovely vision, we are on the same page.
December 2016 Hi Hazel I have to say I picked up a couple of Shampoo Bars and a Minty Massage at the Upwey Grassroots market on Saturday and I am absolutely in love with the fragrance of them as well as how they lather, not to mention no plastics please make a Minty Cinnamon shampoo bar I'd buy these all the time, keep up the fantastic work x
June 2016 Your stress less bath melts are divine! Perfect to warm up and unwind after a long day outside. I can't wait to try some others next month! I just love how they melt away into pools of essential oil - no more bath bombs with gritty residue to me - this felt really indulgent.

Nov 2015 Hazel, I cannot find enough superlatives to describe your soap and products! They look and smell divine. I can only say please don't ever stop making them. Over the years I have tried almost all of Hazels soaps and love them all, as have all the lucky recipients I have given them to. I also love that they are all natural. Keep up the good work. :)

Oct 2015 We love the soft creaminess of your soaps and the creative fragrance/colour/texture combinations. My absolute favourites are the Kaffir Lime and the Rosebud one. Almost edible!!

Sept 2015 I have been using Hazel's Shampoo Soap for over a year now and it leaves my hair feeling lovely and soft. Whilst it took a couple of weeks for my hair to get used to it (after years of using commercial products) it is now so simple and easy to use and a great alternative. I also love that its handmade, local, uses natural ingredients, avoids unsustainable palm oil and helps me avoid another aisle of the supermarket!

Dec 2014 I purchased two bars of soap on Saturday at Yarra Glen, Stress Less and Mediterranean blend. I'll be ordering more, they are soft and full of fragrance. Thank you!
Feb 2014 The shampoo bars are truly amazing and have got rid of all the psoriasis in my scalp ENTIRELY!! Hazel, loving your work. I cant sing your praises enough, its all I use , all my products are yours. My daughter just loves the beer hand soap pump dispenser, she raves about it!! Its a new addition to the range, please just try it once everyone, you will be hooked!!
July 2013 Hi Hazel, I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed your products. The light lotion smells gorgeous and is very easily absorbed, perfect for my daughter's sensitive skin. Your cinnamon, clove and orange soap is great to get you going on those cold winter mornings! Looking forward to trying more of your range.
February 2013 Hi Hazel, I was at the Eltham market this morning with my 2 & 3 year old kids. I took a smell of one of your soaps and before my kids demolished your stall, I walked away. But as I couldn't get the scent out of my mind and nose! I returned to buy a cake of the Stress Less bar. My husband is away and it's been a long hard day, but I was so looking forward to my shower tonight to use my new soap. Just wanted to say I've never felt cleaner or smelt nicer! Thank you so much and I will come to the next market to stock up on more soap as I'm thrilled with the texture, scent and how my skin feels. Definitely will buy as gifts for friends, so luxurious! Thanks again and well done!
October 2012 I discovered The Hazelnut Tree at the Eltham markets this year and have since then gone to the market at every opportunity just so that I can stop at your stall. My daughter struggles with eczema, especially in winter and I have found your bath melts a saviour for her skin! I too benefit from them with an ever increasing pregnant belly which constantly feels itchy from the stretching skin. They are the most luxurious "bath goody" I have ever used.
I also stock up on the little bags of gift soap balls and loofah soaps to use as presents. My linen cupboard has never smelt so good and I get rave reports from all recipients!
Thank you so much for bringing such simple, unbridled joy to our bathrooms! M.N.

July 2012 "It was great to see you Saturday at the market. I have used my soap and love it, my skin is soft and it works, gone is my dead skin, brilliant product".

July 2012 "The product of 2012 goes to .......Hazel's loofah soap!! It is fabulous".
Karen, Melbourne, Vic.
June 2012 "Hi Hazel, I met you at the Eltham Market. and I have a real weakness for beautiful soaps. They are my one regular indulgence and your soaps are my favourites. I love the Rose Geranium!!!
The divine fragrance lasts, right up to the end sliver of soap and just as importantly, it is still usable, up to the end sliver of soap. I gave the Shea Butter one to my Nana and she loves it too. She is 95 and has very sensitive skin, so it was just perfect! Thank you so much for producing such wonderful soap, I look forward to trying out the Mediterranean next! I just wanted you to know how much I love the soaps I have tried".
Gayle C, Melbourne Vic.
June 2012 "Hi Hazel, Got the soaps home from the market and the youngest had a field day going through them all. As I told you, the whole family now reacts to "nasties" in soaps and most of even the most expensive soaps which purport to be all natural contain colours or preservatives that set off skin reactions. Which is why they are nuts about "The Hazelnut Tree" soaps. Long may your kitchen produce such soapy wonders"!
Judy R, Melbourne Vic.
May 2012 "l love Hazelnut Tree soap because it's all natural and can cause no harm to you or your family. l have searched for completely natural soaps on the market and have found they are difficult to find. These special soaps also smell divine and have a lovely gentle lather, l would go to the end of the world to find Hazels soaps again. Highly recommended, best soap l have used that is all natural".
April 2012 "I Love Hazel's soaps. I love how she is always coming up with new varieties. The soap is of very high quality and doesn't go all sloppy in the soap dish as some homemade products do. Also lovely on the skin".
Karen S, Melbourne, Vic.
March 2012 "I purchased 4 of your soaps at the Eltham craft markets a couple of weeks ago. I just had to contact you to let you know that they are some of the best soaps I have ever used. The Rose Geranium and Mediterranean are by favourite, they are divine"!!
"I will definitely be back for more at the next Eltham market"!!
Megan, Melbourne, Vic
December 2011 "Thankyou Hazel for making your lovely soaps! As a lifelong addict to good soaps, these are my favourite, with the great (yet not often met!) combination of not only looking and smelling good, but feeling nice too. I have been enthusiastically giving them as presents to friends, family, teachers and managers: all happy recipients! Rose Geranium is my personal favourite, I stock up as I don't want to run out, and keep the surplus in my drawers because of their beautiful scent. Thanks again & see you at the next markets"!
