beatcancer.org ABOUT ME Although I graduated university with a pharmacy degree and worked as a pharmacist for 10 years in the UK, a move to the US gave me the opportunity to move in a direction that I had been embracing for a couple of years – away from the ‘Band-Aid’ version of health using pharmaceuticals....

A dear customer recently sent me a book as a gift: The Lost Words by Robert McFarlane & Jackie Morris. What's astounding is that the 'lost words' of the title are words that have been recently dropped from the Oxford Junior Dictionary (bluebell, fern, acorn, kingfisher, and others). They have been replaced by (inter alia) blog, bullet-point, voice-mail, broadband. Is this progress?!

Sometimes investing an hour or so in some deep thinking can be amazingly restorative. I love the wisdom in Maria Popova's @brainpickings.mariapopova blog - this past weekend's piece on how alive we really are is well worth diving in to! 🌳🌲🌳

Curious about the history of Neal's Yard Remedies?! Find out more in this beautiful video! 💙
This is "Neals Yard Remedies 39 year natural history" by NYR Organic on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.
I cannot even tell you the amount of times I've been asked "Why Neal’s Yard Remedies?" So for those of you who have asked or those who haven't asked but always wondered, here's why.
💙 I believe in the products. They do what they say they’re going to do - give great results with trusted certified organic, fair trade and wild-harvested ingredients. We say NO to GMO. You would be surprised how many personal care products contain ingredients that have been genetically modified.
💙 There's something for EVERYONE. Women’s products, men’s products, teens, babies. There’s hair care, essential oils, body care, deodorant, bath and shower products.
💙 As a business professional for many years, if I took a day off, I did not make money. NYR Organic gives me the freedom to work from home, from my phone, so I can spend my time how I see best.
💙 With Neal's Yard Remedies, there's ZERO INVENTORY to buy/sell/stock. I have a free website provided to me that my customers can shop from and products are shipped directly to them. Easy Peasy. Packing, shipping, sales tax collection is all taken care of by the company and not something I ever have to spend time on. No auto-ships. No monthly fees. No minimums (unless I want to earn bonuses on top of my 25% discount). No hassle.
💙 I've been selling the products for more than 20 years and the brand is a big part of my life. This company has provided me so much more than organic products. I've grown close with many people on my team and have formed some irreplaceable friendships.
When people ask me "Why Neal's Yard Remedies?" It's almost easier to respond, "why not?"
I will help train you and provide the necessary tools to get you started.
So it's my turn to ask questions. "Why are you not doing this with me?!"
Got limes?!🍈 Make Raw Key Lime Pie bars!😍 Our bountiful Key lime tree has overwhelmed us this year! 🌳This fabulous treat is GF, vegan, refined sugar free, and sooo good! Recipe from Choosing Chia

Our lives have changed - there's no doubt about it. However change offers us an opportunity to reflect on where we're at, and to perhaps look at opportunities and experiences that we wouldn't have considered 8 months ago.
🍃 Maybe you have time on your hands and are feeling a little unfulfilled and in need of some personal development?
🍃 Would you benefit from some camaraderie and connections?
🍃 Perhaps you'd love to have a positive and uplifting topic to talk about for a change?!
🍃 I encourage you to take a look at the NYR Organic US business opportunity. If you're a fan of natural and organic skincare [created by an ethical company that's been around for almost 40 years!] you're going to be an awesome ambassador for the brand! Get started for just $60: https://bit.ly/34m2Jwo
🍃 Wherever the journey with Neal’s Yard Remedies takes you, you can be sure you’re changing the world one blue bottle at a time!
"In a major victory for the movement for safer cosmetics, the Toxic-Free Cosmetics Act, Assembly Bill 2762 has been signed into law. This is the nation’s first state-level ban of 24 toxic ingredients, including mercury and formaldehyde, from the beauty and personal care products Californians use every day. These ingredients are already prohibited from cosmetics and other personal care products sold/manufactured in the European Union and some other countries, but are still used in personal care products sold throughout the U.S." [link to the full Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP) article in the 'Comments']

Just back from a few days hiking in Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. Such a treat to 'unplug' and absorb the tremendous beauty of these fabulous natural treasures. My favorite image is this one - there's something about this tree's precarious position (on the edge of the Bryce amphitheater!) and stark beauty that I find inspiring! ✨
There are so many positive aspects to a direct sales business! I'm proud of the company I represent and the products that I sell however building and supporting a team is fantastic: my interactions with my team are the highlight of my day! Enjoy our Post-Conference virtual team meeting dance!
Our iconic and nourishing Wild Rose Beauty Balm is based on organic rosehip seed oil harvested by our community partners in rural Serbia. Essential oils of frankincense, geranium, patchouli, rosemary and palmarosa create the most exquisite aroma! 😍

Nature never ceases to amaze with its astounding colors! 😍 Even the folk at Pantone surely don't have a match for this gorgeous pomegranate flower?!

Oatcakes! I cannot find them in any grocery store here in the US, so I make them regularly! I'm half Scottish 🏴 so I love oats! Here's an easy-peasy recipe if you'd like a change from store bought crackers:
🌱 Put 4-5 cups of rolled oats in a large bowl
🌱 Stir in 1 tsp of salt
🌱 Rub in 1oz butter
🌱 Stir in about 1 cup water, to create a sticky dough.
🌱 Knead for a minute or two, then roll out very thin and bake at 400F for about 30mins, turning half-way through cooking.

To me this is a 'good new, bad news' story. Of course we can reduce our body's pesticide load by eating organic, but why are these chemicals still so widely used?
"In the wake of the WHO determination that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen, thousands of farmers, pesticide applicators and home gardeners filed lawsuits linking their cancer to Roundup. The first three cases were settled in favor of the plaintiffs, saddling Bayer with $2bn in damages. But this summer, while Bayer agreed to pay $10bn to settle an additional 95,000 cases out of court, the company again evaded responsibility: under the terms of the settlement, Roundup will continue to be sold for use on yards, school grounds, public parks and farms without any safety warning."
theguardian.com A new study shows that US families consume cancer-linked glyphosate in their food. The good news: going organic rapidly reduces levels

"At the height of the deadly pandemic, nature seems all the more quietly determined to affirm the resilience of life — spring arrives with its irrepressible bursts of beauty, untrammeled by human suffering and a supreme salve for it. It is by observing nature’s unbidden delirium in its littlest expression, by surrendering to its sweep, that [we can] regain our faith not only in survival but in the beauty, the worthiness of life."

My focus as an entrepreneur is on natural health and wellness, and my goal continues to be to encourage people to educate themselves on making healthier shopping choices for themselves and their families.
I first discovered Neal’s Yard Remedies as a student in London in 1982 and have worked with the brand since 1998 in various roles. From the day I sold my first item all those years ago, I continue to be delighted with people’s love of the products and dedication to the brand. Neal’s Yard Remedies inspires extreme loyalty, due to its insistence on the very best ingredients, the most therapeutic formulations, and the most innovative products, while keeping true to its mission of empowering customers, sharing knowledge, and caring about its impact on the environment.
I look forward to taking care of you and offering friendly and efficient service. Please email me if you have questions about the company, the products, or simply need help with your order. If you would like to find out more about developing your own business as a consultant with this award-winning brand, do let me know.
