As natural as can be.

That’s our new catchphrase! As we rebrand Wendyl’s to Green Goddess we’ll be using both names and the catchphrase which speaks for itself, much like ‘Green Goddess’ does. We feel this branding is much easier for new customers to understand what our products are all about. We will continue to sell all of Wendyl Nissen’s wonderful books and to refer back to her recipes.

Every week we love to share what other clever kiwis are doing and creating. If you have an article you’d like to share, or know of anyone who does please drop me an email; triona@wendyls.co.nz All articles chosen will win the person who made the suggestion an e-voucher to use online.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS


Diane Smith

The first of the selection of deodorants I bought was the rose, followed by the lavender. However, my skin has decided that it can’t take even the essential oils so I’m thrilled to use the scent free which really does work amazingly well. My husband has for years had a problem with underarm pong but for the first time ever, he’s nice to be near, even when he’s been out in the garden.
I am just so pleased that this gentle product works where other expensive ones probably filled with nasties, have not!! Thanks so much Wendyl.

A must for your cleaning supplies – cleans wonedrfully and smells lovely and lasts such a long time. It had been a while since I have used a creme or paste cleaner (used to use Handy Andy) but I cannot see myself changing to anything else now. Recommended.
