violetflower I’m in the process of taking my old “notperfume” website and turning into an interactive blog where I can post my thoughts more often, keep it simple, and customize it.  I’m doing something special and different here now.  This blog is now covering several subjects I’m very passionate about all rolled into 1.  I’m a wordpress beginner so unfortunately there is a learning curve involved, so please be patient and pardon the dust as I figure out how to build this and create a warm welcoming atmosphere for my organic minded readers.  Since this blog is about being organic and green and I, the author, am chemically sensitive, I’m doing my best to compile all my content and make it as presentable as possible.   If you have a suggestion for a holistic organic product or website/blog that is along the same lines and you would like to do a link trade or you would like me to write and publish a blogpost about it, please feel free to contact me and we will chat about it.

I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

MamaMikeypark

It’s not easy for me to ask this, but my family is struggling financially and we need some help and my dear beautiful son, Michelangelo, “Mikey,” has special needs and is on the spectrum. He has special needs and needs help.  My son is adorable and beautiful and because our state insurance Oregon Health Plan is dysfunctional and stupid, we are not able to have him seen by a holistic health practitioner who can diagnose him and treat him with holistic healing treatments and provide an environment free of harmful scented products that contain neurotoxins.  If you are unaware of what I am referring to, please go to http://www.notperfume.com  My dear husband and I are heart broken and it pains us deeply that we are caught between a rock and a hard place and we urgently need help.  Please read our GoFundMe campaign to read our painful story and donate to our cause.  https://www.gofundme.com/helpsavemyfamily    Thank you for your kindness.

Earth Mama Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash

When I was pregnant, Earth Mama Angel Baby products were very helpful in many ways and as an organic holistic minded Mama who is severely chemically sensitive and asthmatic, I’m especially thankful for their wonderful soaps and body care products that are very gentle for my skin and my baby’s skin.  My favorite is their Shampoo and Body Wash with its wonderful orange vanilla aroma.  I love their herbal teas, too.  I invite all Mamas and Mamas to be to try their products and see for yourself how wonderful they are.  I am an affiliate so I would appreciate it very much if you would please click on the link code above and use that to make your purchase. It would be very helpful to me as a hard working writer.  Thank you.

 

Win Win Proposal If You Believe in my Holistic Organic Mission to Help Autistic Children

vansanMamaMikeypark

I wrote a special important book that teaches men and women from all walks of life how to enjoy organic nontoxic green beauty and it’s all from a holistic approach. The focus is to help people improve their health and vote with their wallet and reduce their carbon footprint. This is not my actual sales page. This blogpost is a reachout, a plea, a call to action to help me help people and help my son.  You can read my sales page here:  Organic Beauty Book

I’m doing my best on my own with managing my blog where I share wonderful holistic self-care beauty tips and I promote my book here and I promote it on social media – fb, twitter, etc., but my hands are full with my delayed near 4yo toddler and I’m doing my best to get on the journey to healing wellness and recovery from the painful candida I’m enduring, I very much need help from other green, organic minded, aware people who believe in my mission. Unfortunately, I’m not in a position to pay anyone, but I’m more than happy to share the royalties and sales with anyone who falls in love with this book and believes in and supports my mission. You see, my beautiful adorable son is developmentally delayed in communication and my dear husband and I intuitively believe that it was caused by exposure to high levels of overpowering, toxic, poisonous, synthetic, adulterated fragrance products and it screwed up his wiring.  A lot of the toxic exposure was from the psychotic evil hospital where I labored and gave birth to him and it’s a Miracle that I was able to give birth to my son even though I could barely breathe with all the overpowering horrendous toxic perfume in the air, suffocating my lungs. That alone makes my beautiful adorable son a Miracle baby. <3 <3 <3 We are in the process of raising funds so that he can be seen by a local naturopath holistic doc to help him. My son is very healthy and strong and he’s thriving, it’s just that he needs help in some communication areas.

It is my desire for this book to reach a very wide global readership and help people from all walks of life and it is especially important to me that parents, teachers, and other professionals who work with special needs and children who don’t have special needs to understand how toxic fragrance products are a serious culprit and a big cause of the terrible autism problem. More and more people are waking up to the fact that fragrance causes painful health problems and health hazards and they are voting with their wallets and are making the healthy switch to green safe organic personal care and cosmetics. I am very receptive to all helpful ideas, all I ask is that you be gentle and kind and patient with me and remember that I’m a writer, not a tech nerd. I’m writing on a Mac computer, I’m not using a phone. I’m a very old fashioned 70’s kid. ???? I have a wonderful wordpress blog, but I am working with very basic tools.  Please feel free to contact me with your thoughts and ideas, thank you for listening. <3 You can send me an Email and you can follow me on social media by following me via the social media buttons and click to follow on the righthand side of my blog.  Peace Love Gratitude Blessings

Organic Natural Beauty

blueflower

Organic natural beauty is a precious gift and yet it is completely unappreciated and misunderstood. In a world where people are constantly bombarded with commercials telling them which cool new makeup to wear or which new vibrant glowing shampoo to buy, it’s no wonder that men and women often feel inadequate and insecure about their appearance.

True natural beauty isn’t found in a bottle of shampoo that’s loaded with 5,000 petrochemicals and irritants. True natural beauty is found in a mint leaf or a lemongrass plant. Chemically laden perfume and cosmetics are not the solution to having youthful wonderful beauty. There’s nothing beautiful or sexy about a product that contains a toxic soup of chemicals.

True beauty is found in a blend of organic essential oils, such as sandalwood oil, rose hips oil, lemongrass oil, aloe vera gel, and chamomile oil that when mixed form a wonderful blend that creates a silky beautiful shampoo and cheek blush color that enliven the skin cells, not suffocate them. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it absorbs everything you put on it. It’s wise then to only put earth friendly healthy plant pigments on your skin so your internal organs are safe and healthy.

Turn off your television and put away the stinky perfume magazines. Either take some time to go on the Internet and learn how to live in a non-toxic earth-friendly manner or drive to the nearest health food store and learn about earth-friendly products that are safe enough to drink and won’t destroy your organs and skin cells.

Wear Organic or Wear Nothing

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my new and improved NotPerfume blog.  The name is exactly what it sounds like.  This blog centers around anything that is not perfume. As an asthmatic chemically sensitive injured canary, I’ve been painfully exposed to a plethora toxic soup that in 20 years is a cumulative 15,000 toxic petrochemicals from fragrance and scented products.  This is no exaggeration and anyone who reads this and suffers from the mcs – multiple chemical sensitivity illness – will understand and agree.  It pains me that I even have to put this blog together, but sadly, in the 21st Century, while there is a growing renaissance of alternative, holistic, organic free thinkers, there is still much work that still needs to be done.

The name says it all.

Perfume and fragrance are in everything – shampoo, moisturizer, body splash, hairspray, soap, etc. You don’t have to spray it or dab it on your wrist to be exposed to harmful toxic petrochemicals and smell like a perfume factory.  It’s not a question of if, but when you or someone you know will be impacted by the issue of petrochemicals in fragrance and personal care products. This is the sad truth about toxic petrochemical fragrance exposure.

The 21st Century provides tremendous convenience, but much of this so-called “convenience” is in the form of toxic petrochemicals disguised as beauty products and air fresheners or as we refer to them as “air poisoners” that were designed to make you feel and look good. We the population are virtual canaries in a coal mine. Like a “canary in a coal mine,” those who are labeled “sensitive” are the first ones to notice these toxic poisons’ presence.

The beauty of this blog is that while I will be sharing important information about how to avoid toxic fragrance products and why, I will be focused on providing natural healthy solutions to help you feel good and stay well.  The bottom line, the primary focus is to contribute to the solution, not the problem.  This is the bottom line.  Follow the money trail.  The reason why commercial detergent, deodorizers, “air poisoners,” are sold like hot cakes is because they mask the odor instead of cleaning the air.

All the mass produced fragrance products you find in the supermarket, pharmacy, and fragrance stores sell like hot cakes is because the fragrance and big oil industry spend an obscene amount of money – millions, maybe even billions of dollars – to fool people and make them think that these products are beneficial and healthy and safe.

Every week, sometimes everyday, depending on how I am feeling, I will post ideas to help you green your life and product links that I personally use and recommend.  Please stay tuned and visit often.  Thank you for your interest and for caring about the air we breathe.

Peace Love Blessings Gratitude,

Helpful Tips to Get You Started With Organic Beauty

I’m often asked where is a good place to start to enjoy organic beauty and learn to make one’s life green, healthy, organic. There are a few answers to this question and the first 2 answers I always start with are these. 1 of my many self-care mottos in life is “KISS” – keep it simple stupid. No, I’m not calling you stupid. 🙂 I’m gently suggesting that you take an approach of simplicity to make your lifestyle as organic and healthy as possible. The main reason the majority of people in the developed Western world are unhealthy, sick, and feel miserable is they complicate their lifestyle. When I suggest that people learn to become an avid label reader and vote with their wallet, I am being quite literal and sincere. Voting with your wallet is the simplest most important most effective way of enjoying a healthy, holistic, organic lifestyle of self-care.

Here are a few tips to get you started on your journey to holistic organic self-care:

  • Become an avid label reader.
  • Keep a dictionary close by in the beginning when you don’t know the difference between chamomile and mineral oil.
  • Read books like mine, Keep Your Vanity Without Losing Your Sanity and become an empowered aware consumer.
  • Make the conscious important decision to shop at natural health markets like Natural Grocers and Whole Foods and get to know the sections where they sell personal hygiene and cosmetics and household cleansers.
  • Either turn off the television or mute the commercials. The billion-dollar advertisements for commercial detergent and deodorizers are going to confuse you and cause you unnecessary stress.
  • Stock up on gallon bottles of white distilled vinegar and several pound bags of baking soda so you can have plenty on hand for laundry and household cleaning.
  • If you are reading this blogpost then you have Internet access and you have access to social media. Search for Facebook groups and twitter chats for “organic” “holistic” “green”. Make sure you type the key words in the Twitter search with the # pound sign as a #hashtag, for example, #ecomoms #holisticmoms #earthday. My participation in these wonderful groups were very helpful for my finding support from like minded people who understand and share my passion for healthy green living.
  • Get used to keeping your windows open to let the fresh clean outdoor air circulate, providing there are not toxic commercial detergent or deodorizer fumes in the air. This will help you appreciate healthy clean fresh air and you will learn to appreciate what life was like without all the commercial mass marketed toxic offenders.

These are just a few to get you started on the journey, but they will help you a lot and the benefits will help you feel better and you will feel supported and more aware. If you have any questions and would like more information and tips to help you enjoy holistic organic self-care and beauty, please feel free to post your comments to this blogpost and my other blogposts and connect with me on social media. You will find the social media buttons to click on and follow me at on the right hand side of this blog.
