It’s as simple as this: If eating chemicals is not your thing, don’t put them on your skin. If you choose to feed your body with natural and organic foods, it only makes sense to feed your skin with natural and organic skincare.

The skin absorbs around 60% of what’s applied to it, so it’s astounding to realise just how many toxins are in most everyday skincare products.


Synthetic chemicals applied to your skin can be absorbed into your organs and blood stream. They show up in breast milk and in the umbilical cords of newborn babies. The cumulative effect of years of built up chemical toxins are also linked to numerous auto immune, reproductive and hormonal issues.

Why risk using synthetic chemicals that potentially pollute our bodies and the environment, when nature offers so many safe alternatives?

Modern evidence based testing can now prove the complexity and healing benefits of natural botanicals, many of which have been used for thousands of years.


Supporting natural and organic skincare not only benefits personal health but also contributes to a healthier planet. Every decision made to support organic is helping to reduce pesticides and the pollution of our waterways and ecosystems.

When you begin to use, understand and support natural ingredients, you will embark on a journey, which will leave you in awe of nature. All it takes is a whiff of a drop of pure essential oil to whisk you mind to far away fields and forests.

With Mother’s Day coming up, let’s pay tribute to the ultimate mum…Mother Nature!

She has been unconditionally generous; providing us with food and life since the beginning of time. Nature holds the answers and the key for true beauty. Mothers have to teach their children to love what nature has bestowed on them. They have to learn to embrace all of earth’s beauty, starting with their own beauty.

We shouldn’t allow toxic beauty to pollute our bodies, our minds and the environment. Let’s educate our sons and daughters on the matter of true beauty…that which is intelligent, kind and unique.

Let’s celebrate the kind of beauty that comes from within and appreciate with age this Mother’s Day!
