How safe are your skin care products?

Our bodies absorb 60% of what we put on it (in 26 seconds!). Children’s bodies absorb 40-50% more.

Like so many other girls, I grew up with a weight-fixated mother and that left me with disturbed body-notions. I was – of course – alwaysContinue reading “BODY AWARENESS”

PEONY or CHINESE ROSE

I have an ever increasing love for these flowers. When I was a child my grandmother grew deep-red peonies that used to bloom around midsummer. They were always used to crown the midsummer-pole – The Queen of Midsummer. There exists about 25-40 varieties. They are heavenly scented with huge flowers ranging from white and yellowContinue reading “PEONY or CHINESE ROSE”
