As summer seeps into the Sunshine Coast, Georgia Beard pops into Organika to fill her basket with revitalising essentials, from seasonal produce to natural skincare!

The warm scent of sunscreen and sand; the fresh relief of fruit juice on your tongue, the mozzies hovering around the backyard on a balmy evening. This is summer as we know it – dazzling yet draining, a season that demands the strongest boost to our health and wellness.

To give our bodies some summer loving, we head to Organika – our favourite pantry for the organic, ethical and homegrown and stocked with summer harvests, refreshing drinks and products to protect and nurture our body, inside and out.
