It’s decided then! We’re going organic in 2017 because there’s nothing like taking care of the ourselves, our health and our planet. So let’s have a real look at the items that we can put on the table, bathroom and medicine cabinet and do our part in keeping the world that little bit greener, shall we?
1. Going organic on your plate!
Organic goods are evermore on the our minds so why not use that new year’s spring in your step to break into a running habit with achievable resolutions by opting for a more organic diet! Say goodbye to chemical fertilizers and pesticides and do your bit for your body and the environment. Instead, invest in products with bio labeling, such as the renowned French AB (or Agriculture Biologique) label. We have dedicated an entire section on our site to the organic diet. Here, you can find all our cereals, biscuits, confectionery, pasta and oils so you can make your meals more wholesome, balanced and organic. Check out “Les Recettes de Céliane” (i.e. Recipes by Céliane, another excellent French foodie brand) which offer a great selection of organic and non-gluten products.

Organic cosmetics are unique in that they contain no preservatives (most notably parabens), allergens, synthetic products, added fragrances or colouring. Instead, they draw on natural ingredients such as waxes, floral waters, vegetable oils and essential oils.
Organic treatments cater to all skin types and include all kinds of products:

3. Take care of yourself organic essential oil and plant treatments
Between the cold, viruses and extreme tiredness, winter can really put our immune system and defenses to the test. To feel naturally healthy and combat the ills of winter (sore throat, runny nose, trouble breathing), there is so much to discover when it comes to the benefits of plants and organic essential oils.
Make yourself an aromatherapy and essential oil kit with your season essentials (i.e. peppermint, thyme, Niaouli etc.) and keep a Climarome spray at close hand and take on winter with organic plant-based sprays and syrups. Among some of these plants you can find Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) to help your body’s natural defenses and also Scotch pine roots (Pinus sylvestris) to improve your respiratory comfort.
And for your the little daily troubles (like joint issues, knocks, other small injuries etc.) we can turn to natural solutions such as organic essential oils and other types organic plant-based soothing gels including Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) which plays a role in muscle and joint health.
So how about it then, you ready to put a little organic style in your life?

The Cosmebio label
An organic label is a lot more than just some logo on a tube of face cream. Behind the scenes, this label is backed by a entire administration and detailed catalogue of organisations. With the Cosmebio label, for example, there are two types of certification for products: ‘Bio’ and ‘Eco’, and each has its own set of specifications.
- •“Bio”: A minimum of 95% of the ingredients must be natural or of natural origin. Furthermore, 95% of vegetal ingredients must be sourced from organic agriculture. Lastly 10% of the finished product must be sourced from organic farming.
- • “Eco”: A minimum of 95% of the ingredients must be natural or of natural origin while 50% of vegetal ingredients must be sourced from organic agriculture. Here, only 5% of the finished product must be sourced from organic farming.
So if you ever have a doubt about an organic cosmetic product, remember to always take a closer look at the packaging and read the ingredients carefully.
