God's PharmacyI received this article in my inbox today and found it quite amusing as well as being strangely accurate, so I thought I’d share it with you all:

God’s Pharmacy – The idea that God left us clues about what fruit and veg help which part of the body:

A sliced Carrot – It looks like a human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes. In other words they help you see in the dark!

Tomatoes – They have four chambers and are red just like the heart. All research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes – They hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood food.

Walnuts – They look like a little brain. And as we now know walnuts help develop more than three dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Celery – It looks just like bones, and this food specifically targets bone strength.

Avocadoes – Target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers.

Figs – They’re full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

Sweet Potatoes – It looks like the pancreas and actually balances the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives – Assist the health and function of the ovaries.

Onions – look like the body’s cells. Today’s research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes.

Weird huh!!

And of course all this fruit and veg is best when it’s Organic!

Switching from conventional products to organic and natural products can be an important decision for you and your skin. Organic Cosmetics are a totally different ball game compared conventional cosmetics; they differ in almost everything, the way to use them, the amount to use and many other things, so here are 5 tips to get the most out of your Organic Cosmetics:

1 Organic Cosmetics may take longer to get used to in terms of how you use the product. Let the product work for you, going organic means changing the way you use your products.

2 A little goes a long way, organic cosmetics are more concentrated and contain essential oils, which can be very powerful in small amounts.

3 When it comes down to shampoos, using organic shampoos can be a little trickier than using conventional shampoos due to the fact that conventional are full of chemicals and are easier to apply. Start by putting a little amount in your hand, transfer a bit to the other hand and spread through the hair before you start to massage it and use water to help it spread. It might take more time and a bit more effort to use organic shampoos but believe they are as effective as conventional and you hair will thank you.

4 Ditch the cotton wool and get yourself a few face cloths you will not only be helping yourself but the environment too. Take off your organic cleansers with a face cloth, this will give a little bit of exfoliation and better results from your products. Remember to change your face cloth every 2-3 days and your face cloth should be used only by you.

5 If you just switched from conventional to organic cosmetics, your skin could come up with pimples and spots, DON’T PANIC, this happens because your skin was addicted to the chemicals and by stop using them the skin will start to de-tox and cleanse itself, give it a month or so for you skin to settle and get used to natural products.

Hopefully this list will help get the most out your Organic cosmetics and Organic and Natural Skincare Products, if you have any questions feel free to contact us at The Organic

Nobody wants to go around smelling like a compost heap (or be around someone who does), but what price do you pay for keeping shower-fresh all day long?

This old question was recently resurrected when UK researchers highlighted the potential risks associated with the preservatives parahydroxybenzoic acids, or parabens, in deodorants. (more…)

In order to understand the intricate ramifications of the epidermis: The epidermis is that superficial layer of the skin that lies on the deeper dermis. In the dermis there are fibroblasts, collagen and elastin fibres, nerves and blood vessels all lying in a jelly-like substance called the intercellular matrix. The epidermis is about 0.1 to 0.2 mm thick and comprises four distinct layers. (more…)
