THE FAMILY BEHIND SMOOTHIE BOMBS

Cinzia had a problem getting her youngest daughter, Lana, to eat breakfast before school. She wouldn’t have a meal in the morning but she would happily drink something. To give Lana's smoothies some sustenance Cinzia started to combine the nuts, seeds and superfood ingredients in her cupboard into pre-portioned boosters.

After proving to be such a hit at home, she began to make and sell these boosters to friends and local cafes. They were more popular than she could have ever imagined and Smoothie Bombs have grown organically from there.

Cinzia and Lana now run the business together. They're best friends! It’s been a challenge and a lot of hard work over the past 7 years but it’s their purpose and passion that keeps them going. 

This family of Yoga teachers founded Australia’s most popular Yoga school in 1994 and held 60 classes a week nationally. It was 2012 when one of the family members was diagnosed with a serious illness that their focus changed..

Devoting themselves to endless hours of research and product testing they eventually discovered a natural solution from Australian Salt Lakes called ‘Magnesium Oil.’

Now, Amazing Oils is Australia’s #1 selling magnesium chloride and it’s an Australian, family-run company, based on the Sunshine Coast in QLD.
