The OMGhee Story

The Cook is Sacred

Remember eating your favourite home cooked meal, handmade by your mother or grandma?  It was special.  It wasn’t the ingredients or the baking pan that set it apart from the same dish elsewhere. It was the love.

At OMGhee we have a mantra – ‘The Cook is Sacred’.  From every person in the kitchen to how we run our business, it is our our overriding philosophy on delivering the best possible Australian organic ghee to you for healing and transformation.  

The ‘not so secret’ ingredients in our ghee are love, joy, and intention.

Love for the cows and the farmer who tend over them. Love for the butter and its willingness to succumb to something new and love to you, our customer.

Joy to be following our passion and delivering a quality product. And lastly, the intention that every mouthful of ghee becomes a part of you, providing maximum wellbeing, and the spirit of and love and joy seeps into each and every cell of your body.

Our Journey So Far

March 2023
We became Certified

We’re Certified Organic! When you want to prove that your products or services are organic, you need to be certified by an organisation that consumers trust.. After a gruelling audit we received our organic and biodynamic certification with NASSA. See our certification here.

January 2023
We moved!

A home to call our own. An office to work from, a cool room, ample storage and most importantly a larger kitchen. Our bratt pans allow us to cook more ghee to keep up with demand, and we have started cooking ghee for other ghee brands to make sure ALL Australian ghee brands have all the OMGhee yums.

New Jars and Labels

Earlier jars were proving too heavy to post and we wanted OMGhee to be shelf stable for a very long time so we upgraded to new jars – and a new label. In the background we were designing a website and our ‘official’ labels. We are now selling to friends of friends.

Soft Launch

With jars from k-mart and stickers from officeworks. The first OMGhee orders were to friends and family. We were overjoyed when Paris Creek Farms said they could supply. Staying on mission we held our first Ghee Masterclass.

A Mission to Educate

We’re on a mission to educate and inspire everyday Australians on the benefits of ghee.  One day in the future we want to see a jar of OMGhee sitting on every kitchen bench.  Step one – having everyone know what ghee is! 😂

We hold introduction to ghee classes in Adelaide, South Australia where you discover how to make your own ghee and walk away a ghee connoisseur.  

Contact us to find out when the next course is being held.

Smeared on toast, dolloped on vegies or cooking your steak in it; OMGhee’s distinct warm, toasty, caramelisation makes it a wonderful addition to any kitchen. It brings a new level of nourishment and indulgence to every meal.

About the Maker

Hi I’m Lisa,  the passionate founder of OMGhee, Australia’s Premium Biodynamic and Organic Grass Fed Ghee brand. 

As a former business consultant, I discovered the game-changing benefits of Ghee during a health battle, recognizing its superpower effects of significantly reducing inflammation and diminshing brain fog.

Since then, I have advocated its use and launched OMGhee.

Apart from its health benefits, OMGhee tastes incredible; and as a butter addict, ghee became my doctor approved, and “not guilty”, pleasure. 

My mission is for my ghee to be a staple in every kitchen pantry in Australia. To this end, I have deliberately made OMGhee appealing to other butter addicts such as myself. 

Cooking ghee is a practice requiring total presence and what I like to call my ‘great pause’.   In the unassuming space, standing over the stove, watching, listening, and smelling the glorious transformation of butter into ghee I have discovered my joy. 

Making ghee has become a metaphor for life and I want to share and educate anyone who will listen not only on the amazing health benefits of Ghee, but the joy that is available to us when following our heart.

Just like the butter surrenders itself to become precious, golden Ghee I want to remind you that in surrendering there is great magic and joy to be found.

For the love of Ghee

A Thousand Years in the Making

Used medicinally for thousands of years as well as everyday eating across India and the wider South Asian region; ghee is considered a superfood. For those new to ghee think of it as an excellent and healthier alternative to butter.

Whether baking, frying, cooking, or smearing it over toast before adding your vegemite, it’s a simple one to one switch from butter to ghee. It’s especially good for those who are lactose intolerant because all the milk solids are eliminated during the cooking process making it easy and nourishing on the gut.

It’s shelf stable and does not require refrigeration until opened and then we suggest you use it within 3 months as the flavour will change over time once exposed to the external environment. OMGhee is Handmade with 100% biodynamic, organic butter from grass-fed Cows.
