As you enter you immediately get the feeling of well-being, through the ambience and the organic aroma which greets you.

It is a one-stop shop for organic products. Shelf after shelf of hundreds of organic products.

It is a family-owned business, only opened last August, run by sisters Jodie and Kellie.

Behind the counter is a quote from Ann Wigmore. Ann Wigmore (March 4, 1909 – February 16, 1994) was a Lithuanian–American holistic health practitioner, naturopath and raw food advocate.

First thoughts for organic products usually are fruit and vegetables. Concept Green has a small range of such products, which looked tasty.

Other foods I saw were cake mixes, brownie mixes, cereal mixes and pancake mixes. Tins of organic chopped tomatoes also caught my eye.

Food for every occasion.

Feeling thirsty? A large range of organic teas are offered, including many chai flavours and a large range of pukka teas. I also saw some organic coffee.

Anyone for tea?

Wanting something stronger. Then try the range of organic wines and spirits.

All tastes catered for.

For something a little sweeter a range of vegan lollies and Flying Fox icy poles beckon your palate.

Wherever you look you will see shelf-laden aisles of more organic products. Medications, balms and cosmetic products are plentiful, as are hair treatment products.

A unique service is an onsite PBM Therapy by a qualified doctor. Photobiomodulation (PBM) uses red, infrared and low-intensity laser light to promote healing and relieve the pain of inflammatory conditions.

Very therapeutic.

Some well-being items, such as crystals and salt lamps are displayed as well as some specials near the entrance.

Around the shop are happy bags, waiting for you to take home your organic purchases in.

The aisles are wide and full of organic produce.

Organic medications are available for children which must be a healthier alternative.

A personal endorsement. I like tomatoes, and all that you get from supermarkets are almost tasteless, be they truss or vine-ripened. I purchased two organic ones from Concept Green and they tasted like tomatoes, just like homegrown ones.

Canned tomatoes.
I'm sure these will taste as good as the fresh ones.

You can get your organic experience here and walk out healthier, particularly if your happy bag is full of organic goodies.
