My favourite buys from

My friends and family would already have known me by now - I am an organic junkie!
Although it is impossible to go 100% organic, I try to include organic and natural products in my life as much as I can.
I have been using organic shampoo and bodywash, skincare, toothpaste, and food for as long as I can remember. My kids have also been using and eating organic and natural products ever since they are born, or in-utero, if I may say!
Why do I love organic products so much? I have already written an article here.
The initial reaction I get when people (my own family members included) find out that I am so crazy about organic food and products is always the same "If you always let your children eat organic then they have no immunity to germs!"
As a matter of fact, the opposite rings true.
Ever heard of the saying "You are what you eat?" If doctors always advise mothers to eat healthily and to avoid alcohol during pregnancy and breast-feeding, then what makes you think babies and children will grow "strong" by eating insecticide laced vegetable and fruits?
I would like to share the common (non-food) items I buy from my favourite organic online store:

Organic Jojoba oil, grapeseed oil and virgin coconut oil are what I keep on hand to use as carrier oils for blending with my Young Living essential oils for different viscosity and texture.
Grapeseed oil has the thinnest viscosity, and is easily absorbed into the skin. Suitable to use on the face and body due to its light texture.
Jojoba oil is useful as a makeup remover or as a hair moisturiser. Add 1 coin sized amount of Jojoba Oil into your shampoo and lather into hair, leave on for 5 min before rinsing.
The texture of Jojoba oil is slightly thicker than Grapeseed oil.
I used it often when I travel due to the dry air on planes and harsh aircon in hotels, or simply due to the climate change.
Virgin Coconut oil has the thickest texture of them all. Do not apply it to your face as it is comedogenic (meaning it can cause pimples and breakouts by blocking pores).
However, it functions as a good sunblock when mixed with Myrrh essential oil and as a body moisturiser.
Coconut oil has indefinite shelf life and is rich in fatty acids.

I love buying from because their prices are much lower than our local supermarkets, and also shipping by Speedpost takes only 4-8 days.
My orders usually arrive within 6 days.

Will try to share about the uses of essential oils in my next post :)
