When you see blueberry plants for sale in Australia, make sure to grab one, because it’s a fantastic investment!
Anti-Aging Face Mask
Have you ever done a face mask that smelled so good you wanted to eat it? Well, with this beautiful recipe, you can!
- Step 1: Put 1 cup of Greek yoghurt, 1 teaspoon of honey, and a handful of ripe blueberries into a blender.
- Step 2: If you have dry skin and you’re looking to retain moisture, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. If you have acne, blackheads, or an uneven skin tone, add a tablespoon of lemon juice instead.
- Step 3: Blend all the ingredients until they are smooth.
- Step 4: Apply the mask to your face and leave it for 10-20 minutes before washing off with a wet towel.
The yoghurt in this recipe acts as a chemical exfoliant, removing any dead skin and the honey is hydrating, leaving you with a glowing complexion. The blueberries are rich in vitamins A, B, C, and E, potassium, copper, iron, zinc, and magnesium. These properties are fantastic for smoothing the skin, preventing lines and wrinkles, decreasing the appearance of scars, increasing elasticity, and fighting blemishes and acne. When you buy a blueberry plant, you’re purchasing a lot more than just fruit!

Anyone who has accidentally stained their clothing with blueberries will know just how difficult it is to get the marks out. So, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that blueberries make a terrific natural dye! Buying PlantNet’s blueberry trees for sale will allow you to access a natural source of dyes in colours ranging from summery pastel blues to the richest deep purples. Here’s how you can dye your clothes at home using blueberries.
- Step 1: Buy a blueberry tree through PlantNet’s online store.
- Step 2: Prepare the fabric by mixing ½ cup of iodised salt and a large stockpot of water over medium heat. Put the material in for about 30 minutes at a simmer.
- Step 3: Remove the fabric, let it cool, and then wring it out before putting it aside.
- Step 4: Put 2 ½ cups of blueberries into 4 cups of water in a large pot. Put the pot over heat and bring it to a boil. The darker you want the dye, the longer you should leave the berries to simmer. On average, simmer for about an hour before allowing the water to cool.
- Step 5: Put on gloves! This berry dye will stain anything it touches, including your hands. So, unless you want to look like Violet Beauregarde walking out of the chocolate factory, we’d suggest you don a pair of gloves.
- Step 6: When the water is cool enough to touch, remove the blueberries using a strainer or your hands.
- Step 7: Add your wet fabric to the dye and let it simmer for an hour.
- Step 8: Remove the fabric from the dye and rinse with cold water until the water runs clear. Wring it out and hang it up to dry.

- Step 1: Put ½ cup of olive oil, ¼ cup of coconut oil, ¼ cup of beeswax, 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil, a couple of drops of blueberry seed oil, and a handful of blueberries into a blender. Pour the mix into a jar and loosely place the lid on top.
- Step 2: Place the jar into a saucepan and put a few inches of water around it.
- Step 3: Gradually, the ingredients will melt. Stir now and then, and when the mix is completely melted, pour it into a second jar. Let it cool to room temperature, and then it is ready to use.
