To commemorate Australia’s fallen veterans on Anzac Day, The Plus Ones enjoyed Sydney Legacy’s partnership with Annod – an Australian beauty and skincare brand, who created a range of products infused with rosemary. All proceeds went to the Legacy charity, to support the families of veterans.
I didn’t know this at the time, but rosemary has long been an ancient symbol of remembrance, and is especially significant to Australians because it grew wild on the hills on Gallipoli. After a long hard day at the office, I ran a warm bath and was able to test the range, which included a Revitalising Rosemary Aromatic Wash, as well as a Re-energising Foot Cream. The invigorating scent of rosemary caused me to forget all my worries for the day. It also allowed to reflect on and appreciate the rich history from which the range was developed.
You can pop the Aromatic Wash in a bash or use it in the shower, so I’ll be using it to start my mornings from now on – comforted by the knowledge that I’m supporting a worth cause. We always forget to show our feet some love after standing on them all day – Sydney Legacy’s partnership with Annod is a great reminder that hard work makes play time much more fun.
Legacy has always been a charity dear to my heart. Through partnerships like this one with Annod,I love that Legacy can be there for the partners and the children of those who gave their lives or their health for our country. As these beauty products can be purchased online via the Annod website, with 20 percent of proceeds going to Sydney Legacy – the charity provides the essential social, financial and developmental support that families of veterans depend on each day.
