Quality, Beauty And Empowerment With Neom Organics

I discovered recently an organic brand creating amazing candles, perfumes and skincare products. This brand has been created by a working mum who managed to make her vision a reality. What really struck me was the message of the brand “small steps, big difference.”

Why ? because as a woman working in the City, these small moments are key to preserve from insanity, stress and frankly lose the plot. Such moments invigorate, re-energise me so much that the world is my oyster and I am ready once again to keep my optimism and have a great day.

I received recently their last product, their Scent Discovery Test. It is basically a test composed of small vials, each of them containing a blend of essential oils which will identify your underlying wellbeing. At first, I was curious, intrigued but a bit sceptical, although tempted by it.

Why ? because I am extremely sensitive to smells, perfume. For instance I like lavender but found the smell of it too empowering. I love the smell of the lemon oil but cannot cope to put it on my skin due to allergies. However, what really pushed me to give it a go is to identify my wellbeing need.

All the blends in each vial, without exception smell amazingly good. None of the other blends, perfumes or mists made me react but this one miraculously made me smile instantly and uplifted my mood like sunshine beams. And a few days later, I still remember vividly about this blend like a magic potion to trigger my joie de vivre and my happiness. It is a revelation because this product is 100% pure quality : organic ingredients, amazing smells and the philosophy of the brand is the cherry on the cake. A brand based on a holistic approach (body, mind and soul) to truly make a difference in our lives and being a must-have in our bag to get on with our day.

No nasties, no fake promises, just quality, beauty and empowerment for all of us.

What’s this obsession with Turmeric ? Let me delve into it !

Everywhere… I can see this spice added to latte, smoothie, meals by organic shops like Planet Organic, Whole Foods and others. But my main question is why and how Turmeric start to be elected as the key ingredient to add in our food. What is seriously the craze behind this spice ?

Called the queen of the spices and present generally in Asian cuisine, turmeric has been proven by scientific studies that this spice is giving serious results to fight diseases like cancer, depression, asthma or eczema. The secret behind this spice is one of its compounds giving it its beautiful golden color and called curcumin. Generally used in curries, chicken tikka masala, the real benefits of this gold powder lead to this craze for it. But despite that, I wasn’t entirely convinced to add turmeric to my latte, so I continued to find out about the health benefits of the queen of the spices.

It appears that plethora of scientific  studies revealed over the years that turmeric has an astronomical number of health benefits : anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, participating actively to skin health, controls diabetes, reduces cholesterol levels, an immunity booster, antiseptic, antibacterial preventing cancer, Alzheimer and liver disease. For instance, in regards to its quality to prevent diseases, Turmeric is acting like a cleaner slowing, stopping, removing the growth of cells leading to the emergence of skin cancer, prostrate or breast cancer, having the same effect for other diseases. This spice is incredibly powerful to purify our bodies of any cells, effects, damages created by stress, bad diet or by the frenetic pace of the world right now. It’s like having a lifesaver with you permanently to keep your head above the water and be able to live your life, aware that you are giving to your body the perfect ingredient to stay healthy.

With this in mind, you will understand that I strongly recommend you to include turmeric in your diet. Let me tell you today, I will illico presto go to an organic shop and buy it today, I am not going to wait to have this natural spice in my kitchen any  longer ! If a bit of gold in its powder form can make wonders to my body and health, I am happy to take part to this trend and change it as an habit !

Next time, let’s see how this incredible spice can be added in our diet !

Mangajo : a bunch of goodness in one drink !

Mangajo, what’s this name bring to your mind ? Novelty, travel, exotism, india ? If these words pop in your mind you’ re not too far from the truth. The same thoughts pop in my mind and also a real curiosity for this new product.

I discovered this drink with my man at Planet Organic. One day, he decided to give it a try because he wanted to drink green tea differently. Mangajo made a huge difference to the manner I drink tea now. We have always the picture of the classic green tea we used to take in coffee, bars or restaurants most of the time sour, strong and not really pleasant. It is only when I discovered Choi Tea Time that I started to fully appreciate drinking green tea. A tea which is light, delicate and so full of flavours, taking the time to drink green tea is like a real ceremony, a real time to enjoy this delicate and so healthy tea. It is where Mangajo added a punch of colours and taste to this majestic tea. With a bunch from lemon, pomegranate or acai bverry , the founder of Mangajo created a refreshing blend of green tea and fruits. No nasties, no sugar added, just the natural blend of healthy fruits and green tea. Sounds like a dream, isn’t it ? Not really. I assure you. This is real and good for us. This beverage is refreshing, a real bunch of goodness and ohhhhh we are drinking green tea, the tea by excellence famous to boost weight loss, source of powerful antioxidants to protect us and help to preserve our health to its optimum.

Mangajo is a burst of hydration with the bonus to taste even better ! With the summer, there is no better way to hydrate yourself with a refreshing beverage not only tasty but fabulously healthy ! I really recommend you to give it a try, you would not be disappointed and you have the choice between different blends which are all of them different and so fresh ! Try it, you have nothing to lose !

A must have in your bathroom : green clay

When I was 15 years old, I have been introduced to this clay by my dad who showed me the benefits to purify my skin once a week. He used to spend a lot of time in organic shops and was keen to protect his skin naturally. I have to say, at first I was quite doubtful about it, in addition it wasn’t too pleasant but my skin… I was speechless… my skin was even, more radiant in a natural way, in a nutshell beautiful. I never suffered of acne until I started to enter in my thirties and once again green clay has been my saviour !

Since then, I always believe that using the natural resources we have is the best for my skin and nature did not disappoint me ! Green clay is the most purifying clay we may have. It is a lifesaver for oily skin or skin with acne.

Mountain Rose Herbs says: “French Green Clay also sometimes traded as Sea Clay is by far one of the most majestic, most effective, and most Our French green clay has enormous absorbent powers due to the constitution of its micro molecules.”

As a deep cleanser, it literally pulls out the dead cells from the skin and contributes to a healthy circulation of the new cells. As a result your skin is smoother, even and radiant naturally. We are bombarded everyday by toxins in our environment, our food or even in our skincare routine, for this reason it is vital to let our skin breathe, to use green clay which is a lifesaver to detox deeply your skin from the toxins accumulated in our cells. Each time, I feel tired, moody and my skin is losing her natural light, I use green clay to give her a detox boost. Not only my skin will be purified but she will absorb more easily and efficiently my other “adorable” products, part of my skincare routine.

French Green Clay is a 100% natural bio-organic material and contains a cornucopia of valuable elements, with several important mineral oxides, magnesium, calcium, potassium, dolomite, silica, manganese, phosporous, silicon, copper, and selenium. There are also other green clays like bentonite clay  but so far French green clay is my favourite.

If you have a sensitive skin, I would recommend you to use the pink clay, less harsh on your skin that green clay but also efficient. I used alternatively both clays depending of the state of my skin. To have access to a natural,  organic product which is purifying and make your skin more beautiful than ever, you know that  green clay is a must have in your bathroom and for your skincare routine.

The Super Elixir : The key ingredient for a healthy lifestyle !

I really can’t live without this daily green supplement. Since I discovered it and gave it a try, I never, ever regretted my decision. Why ? because this product is doing a fantastic job for me, everyday to restore and boost my energy, to keep my ph balanced and to make me feel confident and healthy. Sounds too good to be true ? Seems like but it really works. I forgot to buy it a few weeks ago and I saw the effects of it immediately. I was tired constantly, not able to wake up early as I used to do, sleep deprived and feeling sluggish, not motivated to do my my daily Tracy Anderson workout, it was a proper nightmare, a deep dive that I couldn’t accept. I didn’t waste my time and bought again The Super Elixir and magic arrived : I found back my mojo, my feisty motivation to be healthy, enjoy life to the fullest and be energised and ready for any new challenge.

What is truly magic and important is this green supplement is 100% healthy. There is no risk to find nasties in this product because all the ingredients are natural… and between us, this is really what we need now, to go back to our roots, eat organic and enjoy at last what is really high quality food. We are bombarded by toxins everyday and we know we need to get back the control of it and quickly for the sake of our lives. Each ingredient in the Super Elixir comes from natural, organic and whole foods and all hand made in Australia… and the cherry on the cake each ingredient has been carefully selected for the properties by Dr Simone Laubscher and calculated to work in perfect balance with one another to support your body and bring it to an alkaline state i.e. without toxins !

There is also the arrival of the Nourishing Protein which come in classic Vanilla. I tried the chocolate one , if you LOVE chocolate, this is for you definitely and it really works as well. However I am more interested in trying the Vanilla version, I like to have the idea to have a protein powder which is creamy, smooth and tasty. In a nutshell, if you have to trust a product, The Super Elixir is this product, the classic one first and if you want to give a try, try the Nourishing Protein, you won’t be disappointed, after all when you also see the body of Elle, this is a obvious statement that the Super Elixir is the key ingredient for a healthy lifestyle !

Love your skin with One Love Organics

What’s One Love Organics ?

One Love Organics est une marque de soins bio américaine et elle a dépassé vraiment mes attentes.

Depuis quelque temps, je donne une chance aux nouvelles marques bio pour que ma bambina de peau s’éveille lumineuse et en pleine santé. Ma prise de risque m’a apporté un pur sourire sur ma bouille à la vue grandissante de la bonne mine de ma bambina de peau. Je voulais un sérum ou un soin qui réveille la luminosité de ma peau et rehausse la couleur de ma peau chocolat au lait.

Le sérum Chia Seed Oil est un petit élixir de beauté qui vous redonnera le sourire en un rien de temps, c’est une huile qui va booster l’hydratation de votre peau et parfaire votre teint. C’est une huile à base de graines de chia et 100% bio. L’effet de cette huile a été immédiat, elle a réveillé l’éclat de ma bouille et a ainsi favorisé une hydratation plus longue de ma peau. Elle est composée d’ antioxidants  qui renforcent la barrière cellulaire de la peau.Depuis je dois le dire, je ne peux plus m’en passer, même pendant mes vacances , je préfère partir avec ce soin que ma crème hydratante.

Par contre, pour trouver les points de vente de cette marque, c’est un peu le parcours du combattant. Au début j’ai eu la chance d’avoir une copine qui partait aux US et qui m’a dit qu’elle essayerait de m’acheter l’uns de leurs sérums à base de vitamine C. Elle est revenue bredouille et étonnée que le soin qu’elle cherchait était en rupture de stock même aux US. J’ai eu la chance de trouver One Love Organics à Planet Organic à Londres.


Manger bio et sain : une prise de conscience salutaire

Depuis quelque temps et aussi après la lecture de nombreux livres, j’ai réalisé avec effarement (croyez-moi) que je ne mange pas si équilibré que ça. En regardant de plus près dans nos placards et en regardant la liste des ingrédients, j’ai remarqué que l’ajout de sucre est partout dans notre alimentation, même dans les boites de conserves ! Moi, qui me targuait de ne pas manger de douceurs et sucreries depuis quelques mois, ce genre de réalisation ne m’a pas fait sourire, mais alors pas du tout…

Cette sérieuse prise de conscience m’a aidé à revoir mon alimentation et à introduire progressivement plus de bio et de légumes frais. C’est ainsi qu’après une longue journée bien remplie, cela ne me dérange pas du tout de manger des légumes comme une bonne végétarienne et de rejoindre les bras de morphée. Je ne le fais pas, certes, tous les jours mais le plaisir de manger léger et sain est une attitude qui est loin de me déplaire.

Je redécouvre aussi, en préparant des purées de légumes ou de fruits pour ma fille la véritable saveur des légumes et leurs bienfaits pour notre corps. Il y a tellement de légumes bénéfiques que les végétariens sont loin d’avoir un régime alimentaire ennuyeux et rébarbatif. J’essaye maintenant de manger léger mais en apportant à mon body tous les nutriments, vitamines et minéraux dont il a besoin.

Je suis loin de devenir veggie mais je ne vais surement pas dire non à une alimentation bonne pour ma peau, mon corps et ma santé !
