Hello friends

With both a new moon and the Spring Equinox last week we’ve been feeling the stirrings of change.

The Spring Equinox is when night and day are exactly the same length, and marks the beginning of longer days and warmer months ahead.  Buds are forming on the trees and seedlings are sprouting from the earth as the soil warms up.  It’s a time of releasing anything holding you back and embracing the new.

For Green Foot Mama, these energies have seen a refreshed look and some changes on the website, including the ability to leave reviews.  Just go to the page of your favourite balm – Sun, Skin, Defence, Jetset – and click on the stars or ‘write a review‘ link under the product name.

Here’s to new beginnings!  Wishing you every success this season,



DIY re-useable Beeswax Wraps to decrease waste

DIY Re-useable Beeswax Wraps to Decrease Waste

I like to minimise waste where I can – and plastic wrap has got to be the definition of single use plastic.  In honour of plastic-free July I decided to have a go at making my own eco-friendly re-useable beeswax wraps.   A quick google search found a number of tutorials and two different methods.  I tried both methods to see which I liked the most.

We’ve now been using the wraps I made for a couple of months – I don’t know how we ever lived without them.  Learn more about beeswax wraps, and how you can make your own, on the blog.

Finally!!! A product that manages to use all natural ingredients and is a pleasure to apply. Not greasy or heavy like other natural sunscreens, i absoultely love it and am totally addicted. Thank you Green Foot Mama!!”

Behind the scenes…





Green Foot Mama at Bangalow Market

We met some lovely new people and answered LOTS of questions about Green Foot Mama at our very  first market stall last Sunday.  It was a super-hot and windy day – we thought we might blow away – but lots of people came out to enjoy their day at The Bangalow Showgrounds.

We’re looking forward to doing other local markets over the summer.  I love talking to people and finding out about their skin issues and concerns.

We were fortunate to be part of the amazing gift box for the guests of One Hot Retreat in Malaysia this month.  So grateful to be in such great company with other great Australian natural brands such as Simple as That, Soak Society and Rasasara Skin Food.
