About Us

Who are DeFuze?

We began as 3 mums with passion, experience, drive,with a true sense of nurturing for our tribe. And we have a whole bunch of kids: there's 8 kids and 3 husbands (does that make 11 kids?) between us. 

Nowadays, there's 1 of our founding trio remaining, and we've added Pat to the team. She's been on the sidelines of DeFuze since it's incarnation, and has a passion for healing, and is perfectly suited to the realistic holistic lives we live!

We are located in Western Australia, and love the relaxed nature of our space. Our children have grown up side-by-side, just as we did, and we had a strong friendship long before the infamous words were uttered: "I've had an idea...".

Our goal is to inspire woman to take control of their health... and what better way to do it than by smelling and looking amazing?!

We believe in the power of essential oils, and love to give families a unique way to use them.

Most of our products are handmade in our own homes, usually with a kid or two clinging to our leg.

We are realistic holistic mums who just want to change the world, one oily necklace at a time!

How did we get here?

As oilers, we were frustrated at the lack of diffusing accessories available. Everything we could find was "stock standard", had little creativity or depth of range... let alone there was nothing available to suit our modern day/night apparel.

After listening to one too many complaints, there was an "idea". After a little trial and error, we realised we were onto something exciting, and knew we had to spread the word!

Who are we?



Nicola Hudson @ponytails_and_fairytales @defuze_australia

You’ll find Nicola behind the DeFuze scenes, usually with her 2 girls alongside her. Her passion for empowering woman, developing their skills, and sharing knowledge has been the driving force behind DeFuze.
When she's not building websites, planning, directing, or educating, she is busy managing the brands “Ponytails and Fairytales” and “School Ponytails”, “Sports Day Shop”, as well as Australia's original bow fundraiser, "Fundraise with Bows".
All 3 brands operate online via www.PonytailsAndFairytales.com.au.


Pat manages Elysium, where you can book reiki and crystal facials and shop gifts in the beautiful hills of Roleystone. She’s also Nicola’s step-mum!
As a semi-retired mother and grandmother that wasn’t all too keen on being retired, a chance run-in with a psychic guided her towards healing and in turn, the opening of her store. She has a love and appreciation for crystals, and all things holistic - a far cry for her previous corporate life.
Your parcels are lovingly handmade, packed and posted by Pat, and it’s her that you will meet upon order collection!

Michelle Bell @defuze_australia
Lisa and her family


Our original trio combined very different personalities to create a very exciting business.
Our stockists know Lisa. She’s a mum of 4 (1 mini me and 3 boisterous boys), and first started using essential oils to help with the emotions surround pregnancy and FIFO life. We know Lisa as driven, selfless, and caring. Nowadays, she’s working part-time, and studying midwifery. She’s found her calling, and is living her best life.


If you’ve ever seen us on Facebook or Instagram, you’d know Michelle. She’s the mumma of a pigeon pair who is passionate about helping the families in her community, from birth and beyond. She’s been featured on the DeFuze Australia blog numerous times, and is so very thoughtful, creative, and mindful. Nowadays, she’s working part-time, and studying mental health. She’s definitely found her calling, and is exactly where she needs to be!
