My goal in life are my kids, my job it protect them. I want to give them the best shot at being healthy, trying to prevent them from cancers, kidney, liver disease and other illness. I feel as though some of these are caused by the absorption of things into the bloodstream, by what we touch or put on us, by what’s absorbed into our body through the skin.
We are all not perfect, we don’t live in a perfect world. Everything around us has been slowly deteriorating on many levels. I fear for the future, I fear for my children and their children. Medicine is getting better but our lifestyle choices are getting worse. We are creating our own demises. I sometimes wonder why there’s so much fear in holistic medicine or eastern medicine. The Chinese have been practicing acupuncture since the beginning of time. In Native American and other cultures they use tattooing as not only art but to help alleviate pain. They mark areas of pain on the body, using a sharp instrument and natural man made ink from fruits and other natural plants of the land to heal and aid in pain. Where has our culture gone wrong.
I walk down the isles of a large store where people shop, they have a whole basket full of items, from clothing, home goods to skincare. I think to myself, do they have a want for these items or a need for the items in the basket. Are they adding things to their already decorated home, are they buying that skincare and using it from start to finish? Lately I myself find myself putting things in my basket, items I like and think about it as I walk. Most of the time when I’m to the front I realize that I have no purpose buying half the stuff so out it goes. I myself an trying to simplify my life in order to create a more positive environment. I was guilty of seeing something and just buying it because it was cute or wanting to try something, then it collected or I had little to no use for my purchase.
When it comes to your home and your skincare, Why a soap for the kids and one for mom and one for dad. Ok, I’ll be the first to admit, I’m married to the man who is a creature of habit and will never change, but my children and I opt to you organic and natural. To me a preservative is adding a chemical to prolong the life of something that can sit on a shelf for a long time, not spoiling. Then I go and think about food. About my veggies. What if they stopped having fresh produce or fruits. What if the world turns to a world full of preserved foods! There nothing better than something fresh, something that you even grow in your own yard and eating this.
I recently experienced this with my 4 year old daughter. She grew strawberries and the excitement was amazing! She also has parsley from school that was a tiny dying sprig but is now a bush! She goes out into our yard and eats a leaf and says to me that’s it’s yummy mommy, I’m eating fiber. She’s hysterical!
My son has many issues and if I went and told you the list this blog would be a novel and not a blog. He has had several skin issues and we couldn’t find out the root cause. Most of his health concerns where minor except a few.
I actually created the Nosh Body Gentle Body Wash formulated for him but it’s my favorite and my number 1 seller. It’s oatmeal infusion makes the foam feel rich and luxurious. I wash my children's hair with it because it doesn’t irritate their eyes, I use it on their face and body, as well as on my own. I have friends who use it to shave so I started to and it works great, It’s just that good! I swear it’s like a mini spa experience every time I bathe. I can feel and sense the difference in quality from organic based products. Why am I going to buy from the shelf of the store when I replace my wash about every 2 months anyway, and I get it fresh. I encourage you to try with my first creation, the NOSH BODY ORGANIC GENTLE BODY WASH it's made fresh. I mean come on are you grabbing the expired milk at the store?
Food for thought.
