Ultra-nourishing for dry skin

On days when I need a bit of extra moisture, I add a few drops of Face it oil serum to my Make my day moisturizer. Did you know that an oil blend can only be called a serum if all ingredients are active? Our Face it is a real powerhouse delivering high concentration ultra-nourishing ingredients to your skin.

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

How do you use a serum?

How do you use a serum?

You apply serum after cleansing, before your face cream twice a day.

Serums have powerful concentrated ingredients that go deeper into the skin than creams do. Serums have active elements that often work to prevent wrinkles, hydrate skin add  glow and or reduce pigments on skin. Protects your skin from free radicals and future damage. Has the potential to provide visible results.

For an oil blend serum to be able to be called serum, it needs to have only active ingredients like our Face it serum.

It is usually not enough to only use a serum; you need a facial cream on top to create a barrier to protect your skin. Just let the serum sink into your skin for a few minutes before you cover with your face cream. Always apply oily serum on moist skin, because if you apply oil on top of dry skin, it will just sit on top.

Have a lovely weekend

Close Chinese wetmarkets

Spring has sprung in Sweden. What puts a damper on things is that the ban has been lifted on the horrific , disease ridden animal markets in China. Animals cramped in small metal baskets treated with extreme cruelty. If they don’t care about animals, then look at how the world is today and the tragedy the pandemic has caused. I don’t get how these markets are allowed to open again, do you?

Organic balm for everything

I often get the question : Why did you start your business.
I developed the idea of All you need is me when my son was born.
He had diaper rash and I had sore nipples from breast feeding.
Having just completed a degree in science of natural health, I was not happy to put any of the existing balms on my son. Even the certified organic ones that had maybe 5% organic ingredients and the rest could be anything.
When I returned to Sweden after many years, I started looking into how to develop a cream. The result was All you need is me. The name came about as it’s really good for everything :)
From diaper rash, cuts, scrapes, minor burns, sore muscles, dry skin, as an overnight face mask, protecting skin from cold weather and wind and so much more. I still today get people telling me new uses.
All you need is me is 95% organic, 100% natural and it comes in a sustainable tube made of sugarcane.
All you need is me ingredients are
Castor oil, beeswax, olive oil, Shea butter, vitamin E, blueberry seed oil and rosemary leaf extract.
Nothing else, not even water. There’s no need for preservatives as there’s vitamin E, blueberry seed oil but no water. I have actually tasted all the ingredients myself . The olive oil is delicious 😋 😉

Benefits of deep breathing

Listened to a holistic health specialist yesterday. Had my breathing tested, it turns out that I like most people breathe too shallow. Some of the benefits of deep breathing are 

*natural pain killer 

*improves blood flow 

*increases energy levels 

*improves posture 

*reduces inflammation 

*detoxifies the body 

*stimulates lymphatic system 

*improves digestion 

Apparently only people who regularly meditate and practice mindfulness pass this test.

The specialist recommended trying to sleep with a thin piece of surgical tape across the lips so you only breathe through your nose. She said it’s like doing yoga breathing through the night. Maybe something to try ?

Sourcing organic product ingredients

When creating our new products, for True organic of Sweden, the ingredients are very carefully considered. They have to be effective, clean, not too expensive and always planet friendly. When I discovered that rosewood is endangered, I immediately changed to ho-leaf essential oil in our Undercover agent deodorant. Unfortunately it puts a lot of pressure on the consumer to check ingredients before buying. I’m there myself, googling ingredients before buying something new. But, I think we have to. The profit driven organic certification organizations are no guarantee, they let through a lot of ingredients that are not planet friendly at all.

Veggie burgers

Did you hear that a new EU regulation has decided that veggie burgers now have to be called veggie discs? 

Makes me think of disc jockey, floppy disk, diskmaskin (for Swedish people) 

It’s a little bit funny, no? ..

Like someone ordering a bean burger would get confused and ask “Where is the meat?” 

Hmm... is the meat industry behind this maybe?
