Introducing Sharon Chung and a Notox box giveaway!

Sharon Chung, founder of Notox Box, started her website as a positive space for people to discover the best of healthy living. Having struggled with food intolerances and chemical reactions, Sharon took many years to build her knowledge and replace her products. Along the way, she found so many people wanting to choose healthy better products, but they didn’t know where to start, or didn’t have the time to read labels and sort through all the different products out there. Sharon set out to make it easy to discover the best healthy & eco products around, all in the one place.

How did notox box come about?
When I started, I was completely overwhelmed, spending hours reading labels and research. I sorted out the products I loved through trial and error, taking years to find the ones that worked best for me. I thought there had to be an easier way! There wasn’t, so I decided to create it. I found lots of people finding it hard to be healthy, because they didn’t have the time or were confused reading labels. And that’s how Notox Box came about. I wanted a place that made it easy for people to look after themselves, to discover products that worked for them, and make the switch to healthy safer products.

What do you love most about what you do?
I love the people I meet. I’m very lucky! I get to work with inspiring people and meet new people who inspire me all the time. I’m amazed at how generous people are with their time, knowledge and their own stories. I get to talk with fantastic suppliers, some who have been in business for decades. I hear how they’ve just mixed a batch of ingredients by hand, or how they go on adventures finding the best ingredients possible.

I speak with practitioners to hear how different treatments and products have worked. And our members, many who have started their own health & wellness journeys. People who have taken action to make their lives healthier and happier.

What is your fave go to meal on the run?
Ooh, so hard to choose one. For breakfast, I’m a fan of green smoothies because they’re so quick, you can vary it up, and they’re nutritious. I mix it up with different vegetables, greens, or superfoods for an extra boost. For dinner, I love simple Asian food. So a steamed fish with tamari, ginger & shallots, or a stir fry always works for me.
I carry snacks with me all the time, so I can munch on something when I’m out and about. It might be a handful of nuts, some raw balls or a good quality snack bar we have in store.

What is your favourite quote?
Be the change you want to see in the world.

What’s the one thing you want the world to know? Your message?
Find what makes you happy, and try do it forever.

What are your essential notox products?
There’s so many things I love at the moment. We keep finding really great stuff to add to the shop. Food fuels the body, so I love all kinds of organic and local food because it tastes better, and I know I’m getting the best quality of food there is. I’m loving coconut oil in my beauty routine at the moment too. It’s good for so many things, as a body moisturiser, make up remover and even deodorant.

Sharon has generously given us 3 notox boxes to giveaway. All you need to do is tell me in the comments below why you’d like to win. It’s that easy. We will draw the winners next Wednesday the 24th July. As an extra bonus Sharon would like to offer you 10% off all products (excluding the notox box). For your discount simply enter the word pagodatree at the “Redeem Discount Coupon” field at checkout.

    What a great idea! I am always on the hunt for new and healthy products for myself and my home! This sounds like such a great idea to uncover new and exciting products! I would love the opportunity to try out a box of amazing prodcuts!

  • July 17, 2013 By Michelle Lowe 9:28 am

    Being out in the country, it is often hard to find good, simple, organic products. I often have to resort to jumping online for particular items – but am never game to order in bulk unless I’ve tried the products first 🙂 The notox box sounds like a great way to give things a go without the requirement of bulk purchases or shipping fees from multiple sites! Definitely going to check out the site 🙂

  • July 17, 2013 By Kathryn stiles 9:39 am

    As a busy working mum, it would be great to receive a notox box it would be nice to know that they’re safe without having to do all the legwork

  • July 17, 2013 By Jacqueline 9:44 am

    As a busy mum who makes 3 different meals each day, this would be perfect for me. It’s something I have been looking for, for a long time. Perfect for me.

  • July 17, 2013 By Anna 9:46 am

    Hi! I would love to win a notox box! I’ve recently changed my way of eating and living to be ‘notox’ and I feel like this would be the cherry on top! It’s like a big (healthy ) kids lucky dip and I’ve always been a sucker for lucky dips!

  • July 17, 2013 By Lisa 9:51 am

    What a great concept this is! It’s fantastic when people are passionate about something and then make it a reality. I’d love one of these boxes – as a mum it’s hard to find the time to read the packets of everything and this gives a great head start to trial a heap of clean, non-toxic products I’d be happy to have around my daughter!

  • July 17, 2013 By Lucy Mathew 9:58 am

    I am in a real health rut at the moment and desperately need a kick start to complement my new yoga regime starting on Friday.. bring on a new, healthier me! (And I might go and get a manicure after yoga, just cause I can!)

  • July 17, 2013 By Samantha 10:00 am

    I would love to have a notox box because not only would I love to be able to recommend them from personal experience to my future clients (I’m a 2nd year nutritional medicine student), but also because this winter I am struggling with seasonal affective disorder, and despite nutritional herbal and lifestyle interventions there are still days where I struggle to get out of bed, let alone the house. Receiving one of these boxes would be like a beautiful care package to get me through the bad days!

  • July 17, 2013 By merle 10:05 am

    I’d love to win – because who doesn’t love healthy products?! Seriously, it’s what makes me happiest! A surprise box of healthy treats is certainly something I can use while TTC.

    LOVE to win!

  • July 17, 2013 By Kirsty pitt 10:08 am

    This is such a great idea. I also find it hard to make informed choices when shopping. So many times I have thought I was buying something that is good for me then find out about a hidden ingredient that makes the product unsuitable or me. Thanks for the link to the website I will check out of the products!

  • July 17, 2013 By Brooke 10:30 am

    The notox box sounds wonderful! Living in country Victoria means these sort of products aren’t readily available in my area.I think this would be the kick start I need to get back on track with a healthy lifestyle, winter sure has thrown me off track this year!!

  • July 17, 2013 By Vid 10:47 am

    Because as I have been going through my bathroom cabinet I am realising more and more that I have been putting the equivalent of chemicals found in a nuclear power plant on my body… poor body

  • July 17, 2013 By Katherine Rea 10:56 am

    What a brilliant idea! And what a great way to introduce new and different products to your family and friends who may be more hesitant in trying “hippy creams” as one of my friends called it! :)I would love to win and share it with my 15 year old daughter who as a teenager needs better options than clearasil! Thank you

  • July 17, 2013 By Nina 11:14 am

    I have been going head crazy lately due to different forms of contraception.

    I am now in the process of listening to my body so that I can have natural contraception.

    This box will be a great inspiration (we all need it during winter) to look after myself- my body but especially my mind!

  • July 17, 2013 By Angela Wheeler 11:23 am

    Yes please! I’d love to try all these people-friendly goodies.

  • July 17, 2013 By Kate 11:49 am

    I love the concept of the notox box! Such a great idea. As a health conscious person I’m always searching for the best products to nourish my body, however it can be extremely overwhelming with amount of products available these days! Having the time to research isn’t always possible so it would be great to receive a box of products and know that is backed by thorough research and has been developed by people with similar health values to me. It would also be a great introduction to some quality products!

  • July 17, 2013 By Natalya 2:24 pm

    Congratulations on your business Sharon, looks like a great concept!

    I’d love to win a Notox box as I’ve just had an operation and shopping for me at the moment is out of the question. Also, I think the products in the Notox box might help me to get back on track and detox after all the nasty chemicals I’ve had pumped into me!

  • July 17, 2013 By erin 5:55 pm

    I have started on my wellness journey recently and am loving every minute of it except for finding the perfect brand of each product! There is SO much to choose from, especially Coconut Oil, that its overwhelming!

    I would love to try some new things from the Notox Box to change things up and perhaps find me the best product on the market for me 🙂

  • July 17, 2013 By Karlene 5:59 pm

    I’ve discovered lots of fab products through little samples I’ve received at expos, with magazine purchases and through the recommendations of friends. I’d love the chance to try some new products and if I like them, then I’ll buy them.

  • July 17, 2013 By Suzzi Hartery 6:19 pm

    I would live to win as I am currently in transition into making me into a herby young lady before starting to have a baby’. I at the end of last year used 3 months to clear the hate I had for myself and at the start of the year decided to follow my dream and natural pull to become a heyh coach. I had always had a passion for health eating but am now trying to work out products. With so much on the market it can be a little overwhelming hence I know have three crystal deoderants and 2 tea tree roll ons and please don’t get me started on make up. So this is why I would love to win one of notoxbox’s you are offering. I believe and know what you put in your body is just as important as what you put on your skin.

    -in health & happiness

  • July 17, 2013 By Libby Schuring 7:12 pm

    I often too feel that overwhelming feeling of not knowing where to start particularly with food intolerances. Ive been living eith IBS symptomd for roo long and im ready for a chsnge. Also as a mother of 2 girls I want my girls to be as toxin free as possible. I need a starting point and feel something like this might be it.

  • July 17, 2013 By Alana Wimmer 7:32 pm

    I love the idea of notox box! I’d love to win because I’d like to find out more about the beautiful products 🙂

  • July 17, 2013 By Megan Bullen 8:52 pm

    I’m currently studying with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to launch my new Health Coach career. I’ve always been so passionate about health & wellbeing, so I decided it was time to share my knowledge, the mistakes I’ve made, the successes I’ve achieved to help as many people as I can achieve true health & wellbeing in every aspect of my life.

    I’d love to win a Notox Box to start sampling products to recommend to potential clients 🙂

    Thanks for sharing …

    • July 17, 2013 By Megan Bullen 8:53 pm

      Whoops!… *help as many people as I can achieve true health & wellbeing in every aspect of THEIR LIVES!

  • July 17, 2013 By AmberB 10:34 pm

    I am currently doing a overhaul of my diet to become a healthier, better version of myself. I would love some inspiration product-wise.

  • July 18, 2013 By Anne 11:51 am

    Wow, what a brilliant idea! I have been on a similar journey for about 2 years now, since we decided to TTC. I have a beautiful 10-month-old boy now and have pretty much found natural non-toxic cosmetics, make-up and natural foods that I’m happy with and that don’t cost an arm and a leg! It hasn’t been easy and full of trial and error. Now I’m on a quest to find cleaning products for the home and wondering if I should start mixing my own baking soda & vinegar concoctions or keep on trying to find more convenient ready made products. The Notox Box would be brilliant in introducing new products that I might not run into otherwise. It will go on my “great and thoughtful gift ideas” list for sure!

  • July 18, 2013 By Carly Hicks 11:55 am

    I would love to win this great prize as i suffer from chemical sensitivities and food intolerances so I have to make sure all my products I use are safe and non toxic.

    I run a local blog and instagram through Holisticlife and would love to feature it to spread more awareness to people struggling to find safe products 🙂

    • July 18, 2013 By Sharon Chung 1:10 pm

      Hi Carly, just drop us a line at We’d love to hear more about Holisticlife.

  • July 18, 2013 By Sharon Chung 1:13 pm

    Thanks everyone for all your support! Drop by and say hello. I love hearing about all the products you’re finding too!

  • July 18, 2013 By Brooke 8:19 pm

    This is great idea! I’ve been struggling with fertility problems for the last few years and this year I’ve decided to eliminate all the ‘nasties’ in my life in the hopes it will make a difference. Living in a small country town certainly limits new products so it would be fantastic to not have to trek to the big smoke or spend hours searching on the Internet.. Definitely something I will be looking into.

  • July 19, 2013 By Julia L 1:42 am

    I’d love to try a notox box! I have endometriosis and had undergone a cystectomy. It became clear to me that my food intolerances were directly related to my condition. I’ve recently made the decision to eat healthy in a bid to improve my overall well being and to manage my condition. I love Nat’s site and this giveaway could not have come at a better time. A notox box would be a great ‘starter pack’ to a healthier me!

  • July 19, 2013 By Jess Wolodkowicz 3:12 pm

    I am new to the world of natural products & like many feel completely daunted by all that’s out there. I’m making an effort to eat clean, but I haven’t figured out how to make the home healthy yet- would love to be hit with some inspiration!

  • July 19, 2013 By Jo 3:16 pm

    We’re overhauling our lifestyle to make for a better and healthier future for our girls and the notox box would be a great help in our over haul.

  • July 19, 2013 By Stef Grech 4:23 pm

    What an awesome shop and philosophy! I’d love to win because to me notoxbox is:







    Oh-Em-Gee (…the notoxbox is incredible!!)


  • July 19, 2013 By Hui Wen Goh 5:45 pm

    I would like to win because notox box has been on my to-try list for ages, I’ve wanted to discover more organic and natural products to boost my health and wellbeing.

  • July 19, 2013 By Sal 9:25 pm

    An Eco friendly, healthy filled box of goodies delivered to ones door is genius! I would love to win to try out Sharon’s finds. I’m constantly hunting all over Adelaide for non toxic products and end up online searching. this will save me so much time! Brilliant post Nat, so glad you shared this business with us.

    Can’t wait to try a ‘notoxbox’.

    p.s. I made your Orange Chia seed cake this week! Amazing!!! I have shared the blog post with many friends after they tried it and couldn’t believe it was a nourishing treat! Xx

  • July 20, 2013 By Chelsea Cardwell 12:45 am

    I bought my sister a 3 month subscription to Notox Box for her birthday, she raved about it so much I got jealous!! Would love to try it for myself.

  • July 20, 2013 By Ellen 12:59 am

    I’d love to win the notox box because I love discovering new, healthy options and I love to share what i find, with others. And it is SO fun to get packages full of goodies that are good for us!

  • July 20, 2013 By Sarah M 8:56 am

    I’m still discovering many non toxic brands and sometimes it’s hard to get my head around all the different brands and options out there. I’d love to win a notox box to get a sample of some of the tried and tested brands.

  • July 22, 2013 By Julie 5:37 am

    When I became a mum I also became acutely aware of all the toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis. I also learned that brands can be misleading and that just because something says it is organic it doesn’t mean it’s healthy or without some toxic ingredients. Notox Box sounds like a great way to try healthy Eco products without the guess work.

  • July 26, 2013 By Kate 7:23 am

    I suffer from a dairy allergy and intolerance to gluten, while there has been large progress towards acceptance of no gluten it seems most restaurants, pharmaceutical companies and producers don’t cover both no dairy and gluten. I have been struggling for ver 3 years to fall pregnant and have tried everything from Chinese medicine to ivf. I have been pregnant once and miscarried at 8 weeks. i have a relatively healthy lifestyle as I make and bake everything I can and now attempting to remove all chemicals from our home and lives. Anything you could show me to help me on my wellness journey I would be grateful for.
