Hello!

Indulgence costs money. Ever since we were children we’ve been taught that living the good life is expensive and that if you don’t want to be broke for the majority of your life, you’re going to have to live within your means.

But, here’s the deal. Luxury may not be unbelievably cheap though it doesn’t have to be absurdly expensive either.

Want to know more? We hear you.

The best things in life may not be free but they’re not going to cost you your inheritance either

They really aren’t.

Everyone deserves some tender loving care from Mother Nature – everyone. It’s as simple as that really.

Certified Organic, Organic and Organic/Natural based products have a bad reputation for being overpriced, but when you consider the effort that goes into ensuring products that fit into this category are free from chemicals and pesticides (not to mention the expense of obtaining government regulated organic certification), you soon realise that the money charged for such a product is justified.

Not convinced yet?

Think about it this way. Organic Produce and the ingredients that go into your personal care products are, more often than not, seasonal. Organic farmers tend to do things the old fashioned way, which confers that produce resulting from organic farming is limited (meaning you get the crème de la crème!). Organic Produce is also noted as a viable solution to food allergies.

With a substantial increase in food allergies developing, more of us are looking at organic alternatives for what we put on our dining table, especially when entertaining guests. No one wants to be remembered for the catastrophic dinner that made Aunt Suzie look like Blowfish was on the menu. Which is why it’s a safer bet to use Organic foods and better yet, maybe something you’ve actually grown and handpicked from the garden.

Though organic products may seem a little over budget at the time of purchase, consider all the money and most importantly, energy and sleepless nights they’re going to save you when illnesses reduce in your family (because your body is getting the nutrients it’s meant to!).

Luxury is Mother Nature

It makes sense to use what Earth has created so bountifully for us seeing as we’re just one of the many creations of Mother Nature. It’s interesting how every continent has managed to come up with something useful naturally for its inhabitants. India has Neem (The Tree of the 21st Century as declared by the United Nations), Australia has Tea Tree Oil, the United States has Echinacea while Europe has Geranium, you get it. Nature’s made it so there’s something for everyone.

What this signals to Organic enthusiasts is that the environment knows best. There’s a reason why certain plants and herbs are native to the areas that they are, they’re made up of stuff that your body needs because of where you live. Ineloquent I know, but you’ve got it down-pat.

What does this mean for Natural Product lovers? They’re willing to put their buck where their mouth is and pay for what they believe is going to keep them and their families healthy because it’s only going to save them a lot of moolah and heartache on hospital bills later on in life.

Do I really need organics?

Well, do you really need those new pair of Louis Vuitton shoes or that Versace suit you’ve had your eye on for the past six months. Chances are no. But that doesn’t change you wanting those luxurious items, right?

It’s pretty much the same for Organic foods, except instead of evolving from our slightly (dare I say) vain place, the need for organic foods is probably coming from our gut and taste buds.

Your body wants organic and naturally made and grown produce and though there is no official proof that you need it, I would personally rather rely on my internal organs knowing what’s good for them than what some scientist (possibly financed or aligned to some large multinational) is preaching to me.

Though I am sceptical of my taste buds most of the time (particularly when they crave hot fries and some sour cream and chives dip so they don’t get lonely), when they tell me a certain organically grown tomato should be on the menu tonight, I listen a little more attentively (predominantly because they seem to be behaving themselves – which is rare).

To wrap this all up, are you sold on luxury or not?

Many of our customers are doubtful and unsure of what the purposes of organic products are and whether they’re deserving of all the hype they’re getting at the moment. After working in an organically geared organisation, I can’t tell you to go out and swap all your non-organic products with organic because that would look suspicious. But, I would strongly urge you to try the concept out after educating yourself on the whole shebang.

Organic Products are luxurious.

Organic Products can also be Affordable. We believe in this concept so much, we actually made it our slogan. We even have a hashtag on Twitter under #AffordableOrganic because we want you to be luxurious with Nature. Not because it’s trendy or cool, but because it’s your birth right. Everyone deserves Mother Nature in their life and a little luxury too.

  • Very informative, thank you for sharing this interesting subject.

  • I’m still not convinced. And just when you might be close, studies come out claiming organic’s not necessarily the best!


    • Thank you for your comments. You are correct, the studies around Organic Foods is so diverse and you will find plenty of research and scientific evidence that is both pro and anti organics. It really comes down to educating yourself on the concept and deciding what side of the argument you lean towards (like most things in life – like climate change for example!)

  • I am so lucky to be able to grow my own fruit and veg – saves me heaps of money and if you eat extra you don’t feel so worried.


    • It’s so much more rewarding to be able to feed your family and yourself with food you’ve grown. Not to mention the added encouragement to keep on nurturing the environment bringing it full circle! Congratulations on growing your own food, it really is a wonderful journey.

  • If you have enough space you can try to grow some vegetables yourself.
    Some can be grown near a fence in a narrow strip. Some small size species can be grown in medium to large size pots. Only plant a few at a time, then you can plant a few more in a small spot about 3 weeks later. That way you don’t suddenly have surplus. Some people even plant them around shrubs or in amongst flowers.


    • This is a wonderful idea. There has been a new craze where our headquarters are located in the Blue Mountains, people are starting to grow vegetables on council land for all to share which is such a beautiful, community minded initiative. Sharing is definitely caring!

  • I’m interested in the idea for going organic with food – it’s just where to start, the expense and wondering whether a little here and there really does help. I am keeping an eye on information about which non-organic vegetables and fruits are WORST to consume (since they absorb the most chemicals or are sprayed with the worst type of chemicals because of the insects they attract), and when I have a choice (and the price is right) I try and buy the organic version of those “worst” fruits and vegetables to consume non-organic version of.


    • You seem to be abreast of the information surrounding organic foods which is great. Being informed about what you put into your and the bodies of your family is of the most paramount importance and something many of us tend to ignore or be too busy to be “bothered” with for a lack of a better word. This is often the best mode of progress for those of us who can’t fully adopt an organic food lifestyle!

  • I find organic food tastes a lot better and try to incorporate it into my diet where possible.

  • I’ve heard that you may be getting sold on a myth with organic food. In the US, organic companies are not allowed to spray the food with synthetic chemicals however they can spray them with non-synthetic chemicals. Either way, you may still be ingesting chemicals when they are selling you on an idea that there is nothing but air on the food. I’d be interested to hear whether this is the case in Australia.


    • Thanks for your comment. There is a lot of misunderstanding around the concepts of Certified Organic, Organic and Natural products which is why we attempted to shed some much needed light around the topic on our official blog. Having said this, Australian organic growers are heavily regulated and policed by the government, which is one of the many reasons Australia has such a strong reputation for the high quality of our food. Also, it’s important to remember that some chemicals may also be natural! You can read more about natural vs synthetic chemicals by doing a Google Search on the matter. Hope this helps.

    • It is definitely something you should try. Perhaps start with a little first to see how it suits you and your family!
