News / All you need is me
Those who know me, know that I’m a big believer in a holistic approach to overall beauty and wellness. What we eat, how we move, what we apply to our skin and what we think is all connected. We have all probably heard about the fantastic benefits of meditation. I’ve tried doing it on my own, apps and websites with guided meditations. I stick with it for a few days but then... Now I’ve found something that works for me that I wanted to share. It still took discipline the first week, but now it’s a habit. YouTube 👍
I like the @thehonestguys for meditation and Suzanne Grace for breathing exercises and clearing your chakras. I have to say, I find myself with a more positive mind. Do you have a favorite meditation method you would like to share?

I’ve heard that one of the members of our Swedish royal family loves All you need is me balm. But that’s a secret, so don’t tell anyone 🤫

Wellness tip: Now when many of us work from home and spend more time at home, it might be a good time to invest in some house plants. 🌱 Not only do they look lovely but NASA also recommends the following plants for air purification. Areca palm, Mother-in-law’s tongue,🪴 Money plant, Gerbera daisy, Chinese evergreen, Spider plant, Aloe Vera, Broad lady palm, Dragon tree, Weeping fig, Chrysanthemum, Rubber plant and Poinsettia! Perfect for the holidays 🎁
These plants beautify our homes while getting rid of toxins in the air. It’s a win-win situation

The solution for super dry hands.
This evening ritual will bring relief to very dry hands.
Apply All you need is me balm to your hands at bedtime.
Don’t rub it in too much. Let the beeswax which is still alive start it’s process. Natural ingredients work in synergy with each other and therefor become much more powerful together.
Wake up to soft and smooth hands
So, what’s in it? What makes it so great?
Castor oil is a versatile vegetable oil pressed from the castor bean. It smooths flaky skin, provides a barrier on the skin and protects against moisture loss. We also included beeswax in All you need is me balm.It contains natural emulsifiers which help to retain moisture in the skin and forms a protective layer against irritants to the skin. The reason we included olive oil is that it’s an unbeatable moisturizer that keeps the skin soft and supple while being loaded with nutrients. We added Shea Butter as the concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids will work wonders for dry skin. Vitamin E as it is calming and a real “workhorse” of a vitamin. Blueberry seed oil is a hero ingredient in the All you need is me balm. Rich in essential fatty acids and phytonutrients, one of the most potent antioxidants great for dry, cracked and scaly skin.
Keeping skin moisturized prevents dry skin and all symptoms that come with it.
When we at True organic of Sweden create new products, every single ingredient is carefully selected. Equally important is what we don’t want in the product. We are much stricter than the profit driven organic certification bodies. In our new Make my day face cream we have jojoba(ho-ho ba) oil. The thought behind it is, that our skin is made up of natural wax esters (called sebum). The sebum locks in moisture to keep skin hydrated and healthy. The sebum production begins to decrease as we age, which means, fine lines, dry skin and sagging take place . The amazing thing with the jojoba plant is that it naturally produces wax esters identical to our very own sebum. This means jojoba oil mimics our own skin’s natural oils and can penetrate at deeper levels. Because it is able to penetrate deep into the skin, it may help to ferry down the other active ingredients in Make my day where they can do some great work.
Jojoba oil is a real multitasker and it’s well researched. It has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties. Jojoba oil is loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin B, minerals like chromium, copper and zinc. It also contains both omega 6 and omega 9.
It balances out your complexion, adding more sebum where it’s needed and less where you don’t.
Jojoba oil is for people with acne prone skin, people who want to slow down the aging process, people with sensitive skin, people with dry skin or patches, people with oily skin.
Jojoba oil is simply a star ingredient, wouldn’t you agree?
