Bee (a) savior

A recent report from the Swedish environmental protection agency states that the situation is urgent for bees, butterflies and other pollinators. In Sweden as many as one third of our 270 distinct wild bee species are endangered. The problem of bee decline is not unique to Sweden, it is a huge global problem.
Pesticides, lack of food and a changed landscape threaten our little wild gardeners. It means serious consequences for our future. We are totally dependent on the crucial work of bees and other insects. About a third of the food we humans eat is pollinated by them.

What can you and I do to help? The problem seems overwhelming but there are quite a few small things we can do as individuals to help. If you have a lawn, leave some of it to become a flowery meadow and plant bee friendly flowers. Build a bee hotel, it’s not so complicated, watch and learn from a Youtube clip. Plant bee and butterfly friendly flowers on your balcony. All different butterflies have a special host flower of plant where they deposit their eggs and the caterpillars eventually feed. Caterpillars are particular which host plant they will feed off, so you can choose which butterflies you would like to hopefully visit.
Choose and support organic food, skincare, clothes etc.
Don’t use pesticides in your garden or harsh chemical cleaning and washing detergents in your home. For your families health and the health of our planet.

What makes Scandinavian beauty different


1. What is it that make Scandinavian beauty regimes different from those from other area of the world?

Many Scandinavians embrace a holistic approach to great skin. It’s not just what you apply onto your skin, it’s also what you eat, mental wellbeing and how you exercise. Scandinavian women are knowledgeable on how strong fatty acids can increase the barrier functions of cells. Most people want to keep it simple and avoid long complicated routines.


2. Which product in your in your range do you consider the most Scandinavian and why?

They are all very Scandinavian as I like to use natural, pure, simple but effective ingredients, but if I would have to pick one it would be our multi award winning balm All you need is me. I have actually tasted all ingredients, that’s how pure it is. There are only 5 ingredient but as they are natural they work in synergy and become even more effective together.


3. How do you define Scandinavian beauty?
Pure, natural, organic, clean ingredients. Products that stimulate the skin and provide great results, without any damage and side effects to the skin or the planet. Stylistically pure packaging often made of recycled or sustainable materials.

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.

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.

Healing from a torn calf muscle

Never do I appreciate my healthy body as when I hurt it and it doesn’t function as it normally does. It’s a reminder that we really should be grateful for our amazing bodies. Last week when I played tennis with my son, I tore a muscle in my calf. Full on rest and forced to lie still. I have never wanted to move so much in my life 😉 

To encourage healing from the inside I took Magnesium for muscle pain, turmeric as it’s a superstar anti inflammatory, zinc for wound healing and cut out sugar as it adds inflammation and ate fresh, clean anti inflammatory foods. Of course I also applied the soothing All you need is me balm on my legs for relief . I never new tennis could be such a dangerous sport 🎾
