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.

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 😊

Most of us know that chia seeds are great for our bodies when adding to food and smoothies for example. But did you know that oil extracted from chia seeds has incredible beauty benefits? Not only are they rich in precious omega-3 fatty acids, but they’re also intensely anti-inflammatory, calming and antioxidant-rich. What does that mean exactly? Chia seed oil is a great bet for restoring vital moisture, diminishing redness and inhibiting the appearance of wrinkles.
Those essential fatty acids also help to make the skin feel soothed and calmed, while giving it a supple and plumped up appearance. Another bonus to using chia seed oil on skin is its bounty of antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from signs of age, environmental, and UV induced damage. The oil is lightweight and non-greasy, so it won’t leave skin feeling oily. People with dry skin will love using chia seed oil for its amazing moisturizing properties. However, chia seed oil is actually great for all skin types—even oily, which can be surprising to many people. There is a common myth that applying oil to an oily skin will make it worse. This isn’t the case. Oily skin can really benefit from the nourishment that chia seed oil can give, ultimately helping it to control itself and to stop overproducing oil. Chia seed oil is rich in vitamin B3 and zinc, which means it balances oily skin and keeps the complexion clear Soft hydrated skin with a youthful look who doesn’t want that? This is why chia seed oil is the main ingredient in our award winning Face it serum. Top tip – make sure your skin is a bit moist before adding drops of oil on your face, this helps the oil penetrate the skin.

Dry skin? Get beautiful skin from within. As the weather is getting colder, many of us are experiencing dryer skin. Taking omega 3 oil internally as a supplement may be as good as or better than applying conventional moisturisers.
The long list of Omega 3 skin benefits make it a real skin hero, it helps skin maintain a smooth, elastic texture.It contains essential fatty acids the body can’t make for itself. These are incorporated into cell membranes in the the top layer of skin, forming a protective web around them, helping to stop moisture being lost, and giving skin a healthy appearance. But Omega 3 oils also work deeper in the dermis to control inflammation. Most people see noted improvement in skin health by supplementing with the equivalent of just one to two tablespoon of Omega-3 each day. Oily fish is one of the best sources of omega-3 essential fats, which act as a natural moisturiser and illuminator for your skin from within. If you have a lack of omega-3 in your diet it can lead to premature wrinkles and dry skin.
When choosing a fish oil, make sure you’re paying attention to the milligrams of EPA and DHA – the actual omega-3 content which is what replenishes dry skin. For a plant-based option, the omegas are listed as ALA, and can be found from oils such as black currant seeds or sunflower seeds.
Pictured is our delicious super hydrating Body buddy lotion with oat kernel oil. A perfect complement to omegas. When you apply Body buddy lotion in the morning, your skin is still soft in the evening.

The family is growing. Latest to join is Body buddy lotion with a delicious scent of sweet orange, bergamot and lemongrass. Leaves the skin hydrated and keeps it that way. It’s been a big hit with both men and women and the biggest critic of all, my 10 year old son 😉

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: 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.
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.
