Blogging, Booka Farm, Baby Bum Butter, and Breathing
The Verissima Blog
Wait, don’t I have a business and a job and children and birthing sheep (at the moment?) Why on earth do I need a blog?
Because I want to keep singing about not needing all this fancy stuff to get by in life, I want to be able to share with you how we can make our own products, food, love and fun, if we want.
I want you to give yourself a break if not everything in your house is Certified Organic, or that if you eat a tiny bit of junk food. I want you to understand that life is here, right now, not tomorrow. We are not promised tomorrow and stressing over the little things only takes away the joy of what you can experience at this very moment.
When you are purchasing food or personal care products, a sticky label depicting Certified Organic is fantastic. But I know myself there are legitimate businesses out there who have not become certified organic for various reasons. Look deeper, ask questions. Do they farm ethically, do they care for the land, our Earth. If so, for how long? You might just find that a local farmer/ business is extremely steadfast about growing/creating produce in tune with Mother Nature.
Basically, you don’t need any synthetic crap on your face or in your body. Get back to basics, cook and make personal care products with real ingredients. While you’re at it, stir in loads of love and have some fun. I still drink beer, I buy organic when I can (even with the extra sticky labels!) and I grow/rear what I can.
You can have fantastic, natural products at an affordable price, made by a human who cares about other humans (that’s me!)
