A BIT ABOUT ME
Hi I'm Odette, the mumma behind Mumma O!
I'm an everyday mum of three with a passion for showing others how they can make small and simple changes in their day to day life to reduce toxicity in the home and lead healthier lives.
I started this business back in 2013 when I was pregnant with my first child. I've been a personal trainer and group fitness instructor since 2006, so have always had a passion for nourishing my body with good food and plenty of exercise. However during my pregnancy I started to think more about how I could also create an environment where my children could grow up happy, healthy, and free from chemical overload.
It was through this transition that I was introduced to the Young Living Essential Oils. These oils completely changed my life and the way I cook, clean, and cleanse our home.
In addition to uncovering the oils, I also uncovered a love of cooking. I started to spend hours experimenting in the kitchen and testing out different recipes that would satisfy my sweet tooth without the need for refined sugars, additives, and processed ingredients. By the time my son was born I was able to make all of his snacks, teething biscuits, rusks and first foods completely from scratch.
Now I have over 100 recipes in my catalogue. From salty and sweet, to decadent and rich, nut free and oil infused, as well as protein packed and celiac friendly I have a recipe for just about every taste preference or allergy requirement.
Most of my recipes consist of cheap and accessible ingredients you can buy from the supermarket, and are simple enough to be whipped up in a flash. They can also be made in bulk, and will easily last two months when stored correctly in the freezer.
When it comes to health and wellness my philosophy is to start small and ease your way into it. Just like my recipes, life is about trial and error, adjustment and accessibility. None of us are perfect, and living well should not mean having to miss out on the things we love or spending all your money on high-end organic foods. It should be about making better choices when you have the opportunity to do so, and not beating yourself up about it when you don't.
