About Meghan Mandikos

Meghan Mandikos, an optimistic 12yr old, started her company (Organic Me) late in 2017, with the hope of earning a small income whilst also having fun making organic beauty products.

It has been a big learning curve on all levels! But what sparked the idea for her to start this business?? Meghan said that she had the idea when she started to see all-natural, organic products everywhere and upon trying some, she realised that she preferred them to normal, everyday products. She was further inspired as her Grandparents own an olive farm at Stanthorpe (Kotetsi Estate) and produce beautiful olive oil. Meghan says that she enjoyed being a part of this family business and started to think that perhaps she could make body butters using some of her Grandparent’s organic olive oil.

Since the humble start, the product range has grown and in addition to the body butters, Meghan now sells body scrubs, candles and bath salts as well.
