People Power - toothbrushes

OK, we all know we need to do more to reduce the effect our wonderful race of humankind is having on the environment. We should walk more, or use public transport; use environmentally-friendly, chemical-free cosmetics, skincare, washing powder and even household cleaning products. But what about the little things? In our homes, most of us endeavour to find ways to minimise the impact our everyday actions make on the environment. We recycle and compost household waste, turn the lights off, turn down the heating, and stop leaving the TV on standby. Making small changes to everyday activities can more

Florascent - Natural & Organic Room Fragrances

Create a natural ambience in your home this spring with Florascent Room Fragrances

It's getting to that time of year - the Spring Clean. Maybe it's just me but I quite look forward to getting out the cleaning utensils, and getting the house ready for a beautiful summer - fingers crossed! Once all my cleaning is over I need a room fragrance to finalise my cleaning accomplishment - but can't stand the synthetic plug-ins. They are expensive, not long-lasting plus most of them just stink. A favourite diffuser of mine is a good reed diffuser , they last absolutely ages and they always let out just more

Primavera - Positivity

Primavera Positivity

On a recent trip to Germany, to meet with the founders and world-wide partners of premium skincare brand, Primavera , I was reminded of the message behind the brand - from concept to production to packaging to promotion. I admit, I've been distracted by the integrity and pure quality of the fabulously effective 100% natural skincare , and gorgeous aroma's of Primavera, and had temporarily over-looked where it all began. During the expo meeting, the lovely Melanie from Marketing gave a presentation about a new room fragrance / air spray that is coming soon. more

Organic - Feminine Care Intimate Gentle Wipes

Itís a Wet Wipes Revolution!

Dawn Porter is on the telly a lot at the moment. In the Andrex Washlets ads, she travels across the UK on a mission to "change what you mean by clean", and is featured talking to numerous men and women from all over the country, about their ..ahem ... bottom wiping habits *cringe*. There are a lot of discussions about dry-wiping vs. wet-wipes , and people's reactions to trying out the wet-wipe version after they have been to the loo. Well, Organyc have a 100% organic cotton version of intimate wet wipes more
