Have you heard of forest bathing? It’s a health trend originating from Japan. It means simply being in the forest, taking in the atmosphere of the forest through our senses. It’s meant to be enjoyed slowly, not through a sweaty hike or run.

Planting bee and butterfly friendly flowers

Don’t forget to leave some of your lawn uncut for our pollinators. 

Here’s a list of 10 nectar rich flowers that bees and butterflies love. For planting in pots or in your garden:

Lavender (also keeps mosquitoes away), Dahlia, Wallflower, Borage or Starflower, Foxgloves, Cosmos, Scabious, Verbena, Marigolds (I tried but only got leaves 🙄) and Marjoram or better known as Oregano. Happy planting 🌱

Summertime is sun cream time

Summer time is sun cream time. To protect coral reefs and other sea life, Hawaii was the first State to ban sun creams with harmful chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate. Key West Florida recently followed and also the Caribbean island of Bonaire.Palau in the pacific is the first country that has banned oxybenzone.

We don’t all have coral reefs but we have lakes, waters, sea life and a beautiful planet that needs our help. If you think about it, these chemicals destroy sea life, imagine what it does to our skin and bodies before we flush it out again in the environment.

Here is a list of the worst offenders in sunscreens: oxybenzone, benzophenone-3, octinoxate, octyl methoxycinnamate, octocrylene, 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor, triclosan and more.
Just because it’s sold in a pharmacy doesn’t render it safe, please check the ingredients.
Take care of our oceans, lakes, rivers, sea life and planet, choose a mineral based sun cream ☀️

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.

Must have for winter sports- All you need is me balm

Some of the reasons I feel All you need is me balm is a must for winter sports vacation 

* calms down sunburn overnight 

* heaven for tired legs and aching muscles. Every ingredient is anti inflammatory. Apply at night, you are good to go in the morning 

* protects your skin from icy snow storms and cold wind

* overnight face mask for dry skin 

 

Unfortunately it doesn’t improve my skiing skills 😉

What the press is saying about Body buddy lotion

Love it when the beauty editors also love our products. This is what beauty editor, the lovely 💚@susannebarnekow from @plazakvinna magazine has to say about our Body buddy lotion:

“Aloe vera, oat kernel oil, squalane, vitamin E and lactic acid are some of the fantastic main ingredients in True Organic’s new Body buddy. The cream is light but long lasting and has a wonderful refreshing scent of citrus. An essential and natural product to enjoy this winter.”

 

As my products are like my babies, it really warms my heart, hearing that other people like them too. From the idea to ingredient sourcing to finished product takes a long time and you get attached to your “kids” hoping that the world will receive them well 😉 so thank you 😊
