Rubywood Candles & Laundry Crystals

Why Spend With Us?


Thank you for visiting Rubywood, my name is April Dumbleton, I live in a tiny town on the Southern Highlands of NSW, Bannaby. 

2020 was a challenging year, with Covid-19 impacting us all.

In this year I also left my full time employment and became a full time carer for my partner. With the wonderful support from my amazing customers, some who have been with me since Rubywood began in 1988, I have been able to provide exceptional value products continuously including throughout the Bannaby bushfires of 2018/19.

In 2006, I began making washing crystals. This amazing product replaces the softener that you would usually use. The washing crystals are only made with 3 ingredients, and have been tested thoroughly. Each of the ingredients are safe for personal use, safe for pets and importantly safe for Septic systems – for those living on the land will fully appreciate.

I would recommend to test for yourself, using a small load of washing to check for any allergic reaction to the essential oils / fragrances that are used

Through word of mouth and meeting the demands of my customers Rubywood will continue to grow into the future while providing quality affordable products.

For 33 years I have had a firm moto

“Nice things need not be expensive”

Thankyou for reading a little bit about me.

I invite you to please have a look around my shop and if there is anything I can help you with please contact by email
