With 2009 behind us we are looking at new challenges and hope you will stay with us as we grow through the coming months.
Our home in Taupo was sold at the end of the year and we are still in a "transition" while searching for a new home base to operate from. We will let you know when our new base is a sure thing, for now don't hesitate to contact us for information or orders as we have everything set up to cope with the modern age of "mobile business".
So here's wishing you all a very happy and prosperous 2010, lets do it!
BPA - plastic toxins!
You may have read the article featuring boldly in the Herald last week. This is great to see mainstream media is finally getting their head around some of the things we have been talking about for many years. The presence of BPA(Bisphenol A) in many plastic products that are used widely is a health risk that no-one needs to take.
I won't talk too much about this as we have copies of our old newsletters that many of you would have read a couple of years ago with articles specifically about the dangers associated with BPA.
Lets just keep it simple and know that BPA is very similar to in molecular structure to hormones - in particular the female hormone oestrogen - and for this reason is linked to hormone related diseases such as breast cancer, testicular cancer, reduced sperm count, early puberty in girls etc.
Here is one quote from the article from Ian Shaw, Professor of Toxicology at the University of Canterbury "We know we're getting much more exposure to these chemicals and we know we're getting a greater incidence of these weird effects on sexual development".
The article focused on plastics and of course plastic drinking bottles for all ages are common place in many homes.
Our selection of Ecotanka's is a sure way of avoiding BPA from drink bottles and for those who haven't visited our site for a while we also have insulated(double walled stainless steel) drink bottles for keeping liquids either hot or cold under the Planetary Design brand.
Hand-Made and absolutely exquisite - WOW, do we have a treat for you!
Perfume must be the most ironic of gifts.
Fancy little bottles with exotic names such as Opium or Poison, filled with sweet smelling petrochemicals(yes, you read right).
Did you know that 95 percent of the chemicals used in perfume are derived from petroleum, many of them quite toxic? Great! Dead, toxic, sweet smelling and unforgiving synthetic garbage!
For 2010 you can give a gift that triggers delight, not rashes and asthma.

PRODUCTS from our WEBSITE.
Sample Collection - Botanical Perfume
As a teaser for the Miessence Botanical fragrances we have a mixed box of the six "flavours".
This is a cute cylindrical container that has a sample size bottle of all of the new fragrances. The Sample Collection has 1 x 1ml Vial of Love, 1 x 1 ml Vial Wild, 1 x 1 ml Vial Free, 1 x 1 ml Vial Brave, 1 x 1 ml Vial Calm, 1 x 1 ml Vial Delicious.
This is one of those amazing products that really has to be tried to be appreciated. To the girl who has everything, this cold be the icing on the cake.
At the release of these fragrances I remember a group of 6 of us went together to try the products and the incredible thing was the scent once applied to one individuals skin smelt totally different to the next person. All 6 of us tried just one of the fragrances and to all of us we experienced totally different things, WOW! When you put the vial to your nose there is one smell and when applied to the skin it completely changes, they have to be tried to be fully appreciated and the different scents will be appropriate at different times too.
