Synthetic fragrances

Due to recent new EU legislation we have to mark our products that contain natural essential oils with “parfume”
Before this I have avoided all products with ”parfume” or ”fragrance” as it has meant that there are synthetic perfumes in it. And why would I want to avoid synthetic perfumes?
More than 95 percent of the chemicals in synthetic fragrances are derived from petrochemicals. These chemicals include: benzene derivatives, aldehydes, phthalates, and a slew of other known toxins, some of which are cited on the EPA’s hazardous waste list. Synthetic aromas are known to have many side effects on health.
Manufacturers can legally hide hundreds of synthetic chemicals in the one word.
Synthetic perfumes are really hard to avoid, they are everywhere. In your soap, cleaning products, wipes, laundry detergent, air fresheners, candles and the list goes on.
I find that once you have weened off synthetic fragrances you get more sensitive to synthetic aromas and instead appreciate natural perfumes and scents more, even pick up beautiful subtleties .
Unfortunately this new law makes it even more difficult for consumers. As we had to mark our new Body buddy with the word “parfum” I’ve already had calls asking if we now use synthetic ingredients. The answer is NO, we only use the finest organic essential oils, Bergamot, Sweet orange and lemongrass. The scent is delicious and Body buddy is 100% natural.

Steps for a Healthier Skin

Steps for a Healthier Skin

 

Everybody wants healthy, natural looking skin.  There are many things you can do to obtain a healthier looking skin.  Sometimes it can be confusing knowing what steps to take to improve your skin.  That's why we created this simple guide to help lead you in the right direction.  

 

Stay Hydrated

 

Our skin reflects how we treat our body.  If we don't drink enough water, our skin will look dehydrated.  Dehydration can cause our skin to look dry and dull.  Our body requires 8 cups of water daily to remove unwanted toxins and help achieve a glowing skin.

 

Wash Your face before going to bed

 

After a long day, the last thing a woman wants to do is wash her face.  Cleansing your skin before bed is more important than cleansing in the morning because your skin is exposed to the sun, dirt, makeup, debris, and pollution. Don’t forget to wash your face before bed!

 

Protection

 

One of the most important ways to protect the skin is by protecting it from the sun.  Extensive sun exposure can cause a variety of symptoms, some of which include wrinkles, age spots and more.  Use an SPF daily which has at least 10-15 SPF.  When outside for an extended period, look for shade or wear a hat. When swimming, apply sunscreen more often.  

 

Moisturizer

 

Daily Moisturizer is a great defense against dehydrated skin.  Apply a cream or moisturizer after showering to help seal the moisture that your skin has just absorbed in the shower.  Depending on your climate your skin may get dry throughout the day.  Apply moisturizer throughout the day to prevent skin from getting dry

 

Facial Mask

 

Using a facial mask is one of the easiest ways to get healthy glowing skin in just a few minutes.  Some of the benefits of using face masks include:

 

increases hydration: Face masks can bring moisture and hydration to dry and dehydrated skin types.  The water from the mask penetrates deep into the skin to soften the skin and improve its elasticity. When skin is hydrated it becomes firmer and obtains a more youthful appearance.  

 

 

reduces fine lines: Regular use of a face mask can reduce the signs of aging such as fin lines, brown spots, and wrinkles.  In addition, you can enjoy softer and smoother skin.  

 

improves skin firmness. Loose skin can make you look older than you are. There are many types of treatments to help firm skin.  Using a face mask is at the top of the list to help increase skin firmness.

 

Serum

 

Serum is being implemented into skin care routines is on the rise.  Serums have the highest concentration of active ingredients that you can get without a prescription. Cleansers and moisturizers usually contain 5-10% active ingredients whereas serums contain up to 70% active ingredients. Additional active ingredients mean you are getting more results when looking to reduce fine lines, brighten and firm skin.

Positive thinking challenge

Health and well-being I think also includes mental health. I’m sure positive thinking can be a challenge to everyone at some point. My sister got me a book about positive thinking. Every morning you are supposed to write down 10 things you are grateful for. After 27 days of doing this, miracles are to be expected. I’m on day 12 and even though I started this exercise with gusto, I’m running out of things to be grateful for. I’m down to being grateful for the cheese at my breakfast. 😳 But then my sister said that you are allowed to repeat, and I immediately started feeling more positive. So it’s proof that it’s working already 😉 What do you say, do you want to join me in this challenge? Write 10 positive things you are grateful for, every morning for 27 days. Would be interesting to see the results ☀️

Give bees a chance!


Give Bees a Chance: Go Organic!
There are many reasons to buy organic and a major one is to help save the.
Bees pollinate a significant majority of the world's food, but they are disappearing at an alarming rate.

How does going organic help?
The pesticides used in non-organic farming can be lethal to pollinating bees. In some cases they simply kill bees, but in other cases they can make bees slow and drowsy, hinder learning and cognitive function and even affect reproduction. This can eventually lead to the collapse of the entire colony.

Herbicides used to kill weeds in non-organic farming also remove food sources for the bees, further hindering their survival.

Organic farming, on the other hand, avoids the use of these pesticides and herbicides, as well as artificial fertilisers. This provides a rich environment for bees to thrive, with a wider variety of plant life, which further supports other wildlife such as birds and field mice.

The Soil Association claims that plant, insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms!

Buying more organic produce supports organic farming – the more you buy, the less demand there is for non-organic products, which encourages more farmers to go organic!

You can help protect bees by choosing organic food, grown without these toxic insecticides, and planting bee friendly gardens.

Are serums good for your face?

Are serums good for your face?

Have you wondered what a serum is and if you really need to use it?
So, let’s make this easy. A serum is a skin care product that you apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing with the intent to deliver a potent shot of ingredients directly into your skin.
The best serums offer highly-concentrated doses directly to your skin which makes them great for targeting specific concerns like wrinkles, brightness, acne or hydration. Important is the type of ingredients used and climate friendly natural vs synthetic.
Because active ingredients are more expensive than thickeners and other fillers, serums are also the costliest product in many skin care lines. The reason is because a serum is the workhorse of your ENTIRE regimen. Compared to a regular moisturizer or lotion, you're getting way more bang for your skincare buck.
When applied properly, a 1-ounce container of serum should last months, a few drops are sufficient to cover the entire face.
Unlike a moisturizer, serums are thinner which allows the active ingredients to penetrate quickly into the epidermis instead of lying on the surface.
Face lotions and creams are richer and create a barrier on top of the skin to keep all that good stuff in.

Amazing multitasker

This summer we have been using the amazing multi tasker All you need is me balm almost daily. On mosquito bites, apply a dab of tea tree oil let it dry, then put All you need is me on top. It will stop itching. For sunburn, All you need is me calms the skin. Nettle stings disappear in minutes after applying All you need is me. A gardener’s hands best friend. No wonder this little miracle tube has won so many awards. What do you use it for? So kind yet so hardworking. Inspired by not wanting to put anything harsh on my son’s body when he was a baby. So grateful, thank you.
