TIPS: Makeover my medicine cabinet May 08 2017, 0 Comments
If you missed the recent makeover my medicine cabinet workshop at Green Mumma you can refer to this great resource from doTERRA (Living Magazine) below, which covers many of the things we chatted about during the workshop.
During the workshop we focussed upon how we could utilise natural remedies & Essential Oils to replace some of the common medicine cabinet items that are often reached for when cold and flu season hits. We also chatted about preventative and immune boosting remedies.
1. Instead of Pain / Headache medication Try past tense
2. Instead of Nasal Decongestion, cold and flu medication or allergy relief medication try Easy Air (known as Breathe (Respiratory Blend) in the US. Try the Easy Air blend in a diffuser at night, and the throat drops to soothe a sore throat.
3. Instead of cough suppressant try rosemary
4. Instead of anti-itch lotion, sleeping aids, burn cream or cuts and scrapes disinfectant try lavender
5. Instead of mouthwash, try peppermint
7. Instead of upset stomach medication or heartburn medication try Digest Zen
8. Instead of sterilising agent, try Purify. It also works great as a room freshener.
9. Instead of Whitening flouride toothpaste try on guard toothpaste
10. Instead of wart removal cream try oregano
11. Instead of athlete's foot cream try Tea tree oil( melaleuca )
Great multipurpose oils -
These items are all available to purchase individually from Green Mumma through the relevant links above and this is a great convenient way to get your hands on a few oils to try them out, or get a diffuser. There is 10% off petal diffusers at the moment.
We will be placing bi-monthly orders & items are delivered to Green Mumma and you will be notified upon their arrival so you can collect them or for regular delivery customers, we are happy to pop them in your next order.
Alternatively, you can set up your own wholesale account & order direct through doTERRA. This means the products are delivered straight to your door and you can save 25% off RRP.
Advantages of a wholesale account:

- Click continue
- Select "local order" & then "continue"
- Select "Wholesale order" - we recommend this option as it gives you the ability to earn free products and rewards.
A note - Although I am really computer savvy, i felt a little overwhelmed at the beginning as I wanted to try everything right away but my budget wouldn't allow me to. I spent literally hours and hours pouring over the website deciding on what oils to chose and researching and changing my mind. I started with a single bottle of oil (Balance) & built from there. I'm happy to chat about how I started and what I use for my family & what might best meet your own needs & budget. Maybe like me, you just need to start off with one thing, such as something to boost your immunity throughout winter, and go from there or grab one of the great value enrolment kits and jump straight into it.

What's in season for November? November 07 2016, 0 Comments
Buying fruit and veg in season is always the most economical way to shop.
We always recommend our customers wait a few weeks after an item first pops up for season before purchasing. When all the organics retailers are scrambling to get their hands on a limited amount of produce from a farmer, it drives the price up. If you are patient and wait until the fruit or veg is in more abundance, the price drops, making it a more economical way to shop.
The below What's in season guide is thanks to Australian Organic. As you may notice, the list is a little shorter than usual as many of the winter / spring produce has finished and the summer produce is yet to arrive. Keep your eyes peeled for stone fruits which are just starting to arrive.
RECIPE: Our Easy Organic Roast Beetroot Hommus Dip May 03 2016, 0 Comments
Our easy Organic Roast beetroot hommus
This vibrant healthy beet hommus was used in our Organic Meal Deals last week.
- Bunch of baby beets / 3 medium beetroot
- Can chickpeas
- Olive oil
- garlic clove or organic crushed garlic
- Tahini (optional)
- Lemon (juiced)
- Cut the ends off your beets but leave the remainder of the skin intact
- Wrap your beets in foil and drizzle with a little olive oil and salt
- Roast beets in the oven for approx. 30 – 40 mins on 180 degrees or until soft (this will depend on what size beets you use)
- Once roasted allow to cool and then pop in the food processor and blend
- Add one can of drained, washed chickpeas
- Add the juice of one lemon
- Add one clove of crushed garlic
- Blend together in food processor
- Add olive oil whilst the ingredients are blending until it forms a smooth thick paste consistency. If it’s still grainy add a little lemon and oil
- Add salt and pepper to taste
You could also add a mild chilli, cumin or tahini to flavour to your taste, however we didn’t use in our batch as the beetroot flavour was strong enough

ORGANIC MEALS FAQ’s
Where can I find your menu?
You can find a copy of a menu for the current and following week on our website. Just click the organic meals category. There is also a copy available in store to view.
It’s not viable for us to print menus given our menu rotates on a weekly basis to keep things interesting, allowing us to eat more seasonally & showcase our beautiful fresh produce.
What if I don’t like one of the meals on the plan?
If you do not like a particular meal on the plan, you may substitute it for one of the meals on the alternate meal plan. For example if you are ordering from week 2 meal deal (regular) you may choose a substitute a meal from the meal deal (vegan) plan. You can use the comments section when ordering online to indicate this preference.
Only one substitution is allowed per order.
If you have particular dietary restrictions that need to be accommodated please email us regarding custom meals. These incur additional costs.
How do I place an order?
The easiest way is to order meals is online, selecting the relevant meal plan and entering your details for delivery and pick up.
Alternatively you can email us with your preferences and contact details and we can send you through an invoice (Remember to check your junk folder ) or order and pay in store. An order is not considered final until invoice has been paid.
If you require meals each week on an ongoing basis, email us and we will arrange for an invoice to be automatically sent to you each week . Orders are not considered final until paid so if you need to skip a week there is no obligation, just don’t pay your invoice.
Orders close each Wednesday evening at 8pm.
What if I missed the order deadline?
If you missed the order deadline we suggest you email us ASAP to see whether we can accommodate a late order, or try your luck and see what ready made meals are available in store.
What days are meal orders available?
Currently the meal deals are only available to collect / for delivery on Saturday’s allowing us to prepare in bulk and keep our costs low.
At Green Mumma HQ we always have a section of take home packs in store for you to grab. We may consider offering an additional delivery / pick up day depending upon demand.
Are the meals freezable?
The meals from the “meal deals” have been selected so a majority of them freeze very well (if required), however as they are prepared fresh the day / evening prior to delivery this often isn’t required.
We don’t recommend freezing the meals from the Lighten up package as they are lighter salad options, apart from the soups which freeze very well.
How much is home delivery?
We charge a $7 delivery fee or orders over $80.01 currently have free delivery. In store pick up is free.
We also offer FREE DELIVERY with each mystery organic produce box so this is a great way to get your meals delivered for free and to have a fridge full of fresh produce.
Do you provide a nutritional break down of meals?
Unfortunately we do not offer nutritional break downs of meals. Our focus is to providing wholesome nourishing meals using fresh certified organic and biodynamic ingredients, not calorie counting.
