Why choose organic health and beauty?

These days, people are becoming increasingly aware of the food they consume and skin products they use. People are now starting to buy organic foods from direct outlets, fresh fruits and vegetables directly from farmers, and skin/personal care containing more natural organic elements. But the question is, why?
In the world we are living in, pollution and free radicals (radicals react with the DNA and the cell membrane, which in turn causes the cell to die) surround us, and there is little we can do to control this. Fruits and vegetables are being sprayed with various chemicals such as pesticides, chickens are pumped with growth hormones to fatten them up, one third of all personal care products contain one of more ingredients classified as possible carcinogens! 89% of the 10,500 skin/personal care we use have not even been evaluated for safety! Which means that we may be consuming and using products which may be even classified as possible carcinogens..linking to various types of cancer!
So why organic?
  • It is good for the soil!
  • Good for the environment-depending on non renewable resources
  • Good for people-organic based ingredients have been showen in a number of studies to contain more vitamins, nutrients and cancer fighting antioxidents as compared to non organic.
  • No synthetic chemicals-prohibits the use of artificial chemicals, pesticides and fertilisers.
  • No genetically modified organisms (GMO).

Thinking of introducing an organic lifestyle into your life?

At some supermarkets, you may find organic foods such as organic sugar, organic fruits and vegetables etc. You can search online for retailers who sell organic products, and those farmers who grow their crops organically. And for the skin/ personal care use, I recommend Miessence!

What is Miessence?

First of all, Miessence is the worlds first extensive range of internationally certified organic skin, hair, body, cosmetic, oral and nutritional products. I myself have been using it after seeing the result of my sisters beautiful complexion and healthy appearance. Since then, I have joined this Miessence business and hope to educate others of the foods, and products they are using daily.

If you would like more information about organic products, or if you would like to browse around the website, feel free to visit my online shop at:

In there you will find a vast amount of information regarding organics, and various products. They even have a mother-baby range, cosmetics such as foundation, mascara etc containing organic ingredients and much more!

Have fun looking around at the hundreds of products!

The subconscious unlimited potential! Part 2

As discussed in the first article of the subconcious mind, it is crucial to constantly feed our subconscious mind with positive, harmonious thoughts. The subconscious mind perceives through intuition, or what is also known to be the "sixth sense". Although we hear and see with our usual senses, and the conscious mind understands material images and worldy facts we are faced with daily, the true intepretation and perception of the hidden meanings behind the entire creation can be understood by our internal instinct, which does not necessarily have to be things we have learnt or experienced. This internal instinct which Allah has created for us is a Divine Gift. This internal instinct, if used properly, will guide us to Allah's true Path. For example, many of the Companions of the Prophet (saw) experienced this gift. They had devoted themselves to Allah, and had deep faith, thus through their purification of their bodies and soul, they could free their minds and their intuition.

Allah states in the Quran:

"And surely, We have destined many of the jinns and humans for Hell. They have hearts with which they do not understand, they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear (the truth). They are like cattle, nay even more astray:those, they are the heedless ones!" (Quran 7:179).

Our subconscious mind is sensitive to suggestions, not being able to negotiate or differentiate or barter, it merely acccepts messages of the conscious mind. This is the only route any information can reach the subconscious mind. What does this mean? This means that with our will, we have the ability to filter the suggesstion received, stored and executed by our subconscious.

A good example of this that Ayad (2008) had provided in her book "Healing Body and Soul" was her ability to learn how to drive. She had urged her parents to teach her, and although she had lessons for weeks, she could not control the car, being too scared. When she sat down and really thought about it, she realized that no female members of her family could drive, having all failed. Hence, without realizing it she subconsciously thought that since she was a female member of the family, she too won't be able to learn how to drive. It took her a while to erase this negative attitude from her mind and replace it with a powerful belief that she was capable of doing it. Thus once she was able to mentally accept this new suggesstion, her subconscious powers began to act accordingly, and she soon got her license.
