We all know why we need to get rid of fleas and ticks, it’s because they can cause skin allergies and dermatitis, also the possibilities of getting infection or even tapeworms in the dog. If the dog was not being taken care of, or the owners of dogs are not aware of the prevention of getting ticks and fleas and getting more and more, the dog could lose a lot of blood and get anemia, worst situation, death. Please be warned that ticks carry various diseases.
SO, how to prevent from getting them or get rid of them?! Best scenario would of course be to prevent from having any of these nasty insects jump onto your beloved dog, but if this isn’t always the case, what can we do?!
There are lots of ticks and fleas killer out there, like Frontline Plus, Advantage, K-9 Advantix …etc. it works wonder… well for some dogs and some are reportedly to have skin irritation, but like human, every individual react differently towards any drugs or medication, so same theory goes to dogs too.
BUT what you need to find out is, how does this thing work?! Does it have side effect? Let’s have a general understanding of what they can and cannot do, and what should be avoided and why.
Frontline Plus will kill fleas within 18hours, and ticks within 48 hours; Advantage will kill fleas within 24 hours but does not work on ticks; K-9 Advantix will kill fleas and larvae within 12 hours and ticks within 48 hours. Both Advantage and Frontline Plus kill lice too and K-9 Advantix also work on mosquitoes.They all continue working for a month. (All time frame for reference only)
All of the mentioned brands are water-resistant, however, it is suggested, dog should be bathed before applying the drops or several days after bathed, when bathing the dog, it is recommended to use non-detergent shampoo…
Organic Shampoo definitely NOT detergent but actually natural and good for dogs!! Better yet, it’s organic!!
You may want to know if they are harmful to humans, here is the FACT:
Advantage contains ONE pesticide, it is LESS harmful (we can’t measure how less it could be, and LESS harmful DOES NOT mean it is safe); Frontline Plus and K-9 Advantix both have TWO pesticides (one for ticks and the other for fleas) and K-9 Advantix ones are stronger than Frontline Plusor Advantage children are advised to STAY AWAY from the application area for couple of days. It is also lethal to cats.
Although the dosage is based on the size/ weight of the dog, NONETHELESS , we can now see that ALL these products contain STRONG pesticides
Click Here and Here find out what other people have experienced using these products on their dog.
When we hear pesticides, we should already on high alert, and to the extreme that children needs to stay away and it is fatal to cat?! YOU SHOULD BE THINKING IF IT IS THE BEST IDEA TO PUT SUCH TOXIC ON YOUR BELOVED DOG, YOU ARE BASICALLY POISONING TIME IN SMALL DOSAGE!!
Click here to find out one of the ingredients being used in Frontline
That is why we encourage dog owners to use natural and organic products to prevent them from jumping onto the animals instead of using the mentioned products. Put yourself in their shoes, if mosquitoes repellent is like the mentioned products, once mosquitoes sucked your blood and they will die within 24-48 hours?! And children should stay away from you for couple of days because you have those products on your skin and in your blood? Would it make sense to you that your blood is too toxic that you cannot be approached or touched? Does it occur to you that your blood that is full of toxic chemicals that is running throughout your body and that you could be in danger too as everyone react to these things differently?! If your answer to putting these products on your skin is NO, then you SHOULD NOT expose your dog to these products!!
These repellent PREVENT ticks and fleas from jumping onto the dogs, prevention is always better than to treat and get rid of them after they landed on dogs…
Click here to find out what is in the ticks and fleas killer and why are we so against it?! It’s PESTICIDES ON SKIN after all… direct injection of toxic?!
If you go to vet, they will of course recommend these to you, as it’s all about business, the more they sell, the more commission they get. Even for human Dr. but if you would go to different forums or internet to search for natural and organic ones, you are definitely going to be able to find alternatives. Just remember, you should never put something on your pet or animals with something that you will not put on yourself!
If you own any of these, just be careful with the usage or simply change it…

This is NOT a blog for women only, but also for men… because, we are going to talk about HONEY!!
I am sure all of you have heard of the good stuff that honey can do! BUT do you know that they have healing effect too??
The simplest one is to drink warm honey water to sooth your dry throat (just a friendly reminder, water should NOT be hotter than 45 Degree Celsius)
Honey could be used in meals and as a substitution of sugar for tea and coffee!! If you haven’t tried it..you should try now… no harm (for real) and if you know what sugar could do to your body, you would have SECOND thought before taking them, (you may know of the harm already… but are you trying to avoid them as well as you could?)
To name a few of theDISADVANTAGESof taking sugar:
* Sugar can decrease growth hormone (the key to staying youthful and lean)
* Sugar feeds cancer
* Sugar increases cholesterol
* Sugar can weaken eyesight
* Sugar can cause drowsiness and decreased activity in children
* Sugar can interfere with the absorption of protein
1. Although honey in general might has higher calories than sugar, BUT, honey is sweeter, which means that you will needLESSthan one tablespoon of honey-LESScalories consumption (Good way to start off diet and weight loss plan!!) Also, when consume honey with warm water, it helps to digesting the fat stored in the body
2. Honey will be absorbed much quicker by body than sugar
3. Honey speeds up the healing process by stimulating wound tissue
4. Honey can be of multiple use, like for barbeque, face mask, sore throat…etc
Want to know how to make DIY mask with honey and get your hands on the honey recipes?
Just heard that Christian Louboutin will have his own cosmetic line, just like Tom Ford, YSL and so many other brands….and Louboutin will be partnering with Batallure Beauty LLC.
Christian Louboutin is known for the “red-sole”, and who doesn’t want to own one of those beautiful shoes?! BUT talking about beauty line, I’m not sure it will be any different that other brands, like Tom Ford, Burberry, YSL…etc, the difference of these companies are Fashion made Beauty- which means, they do not have any cosmetic producing background, but since they see that beauty market is a huge market out there which can reach so many levels of the society and definitely more affordable than fashion, so WHY NOT?!
Now, my concern is, despite the design of the packaging, a little twist of the color from other brands, the synthetic perfume in the lipsticks or foundation might be more stand out from the crowd (just guessing here) Is Louboutin really making a “different” beauty line compare with the other brands?!
By the meaning of different, we are talking about ingredients, not the packaging and all human creation kind of different, we are concern about the actual product quality.When Chanel and YSL and so many other individual companies’ beauty lines are owned by L’oreal, some said they are baked from the same bakery, some said they still have their own bakery, we as outsider, wouldn’t know too much of what is happening in the plant. BUT one thing we can be sure that is, whatever they are making, is not the best for our health, not just lipsticks, even so they claimed that leads could be impurities and it is hard to detect even with a machine, but if a company cannot guarantee that these toxic chemical can be detoxed out of our body, which means that they can be / are accumulative, and to a point which could be harmful, so why should we choose something that has potential hazard to us? It is not a matter of “I need to see it to believe it is true”, when you SAW this happened, it could be too late, so why don’t we avoid all the potential hazard?! Don’t forget that everyone is unique, so is our body, we could have different reaction to a component. So you think this might not be hazard to you, but this could be hazardous to someone else. BUT when the science report has pointed out the fact that they are harmful, why do we choose to ignore that fact?
I’ve found some articles talking about mascara and foundation.
By no means we would like to scare you with this article/blog, we are here to present fact, and you can disagree of course. Our goal is to bring awareness to people on what they are “taking” into their body or what their body is absorbing. Packaging of products is a way to market it, to make it more outstanding and mark up the price, but this doesn’t reflect the products’ quality itself.
When people say that organic or mineral makeup is now a trend…would you agree or not?!
If you say it’s a trend, which means that this “trend” will become outdated one day, just like some retro clothing or accessories back then…from our parents or even grandparents generation…and make a come back 20 years later… and company trying to sell organic/ mineral products these days are just trying to own some market shares out there? I wouldn’t deny that there are definitely some companies are trying to get their share on the market when they spotted this trend…BUT some have been doing organic/ mineral products all the way…since they started the company…wouldn’t they worried that this “trend” will be outdated and they will be out of biz one day too?!
We personally don’t believe that it is a trend, BUT this is a new concept that will be used in every day life sooner or later, which means , there will be organic clothing… which there are already for babies, organic living like veggies and fruit, because natural products are simply not good enough to protect us as they are being injected with different GMOs Who would want to have some scorpion GMO in their body…like Scorpion cabbage?! or GMO Corn? Anyone?! Hence, natural products was “HOT” in the market few years back…or still HOT but Organic is just one step further to protect our body….
For us, going Organic is NOT a choice, it’s necessary to go Organic to be able to protect ourselves fully. Thanks to the advanced technology. We are able to enjoy Organic products from head to toe, even makeup!!
DON’T start questioning if they are good or not if you have never tried… there are a lot of organic beauty lines out there, which means, whatever color you need, there will be companies that have the products that you looking for… just go out there and try!! i.e. organic pharmacy (UK), Nvey Eco (Australian Brand, it was used in global awards), lavera (Germany Brand) , Couleur Caramel (French) , RMS Beauty (US)….etc
All lines have great collection of colors and they are very high pigmented!! So, don’t look down on organic makeup or have bias against them, because, they are here for a reason, one of the reasons could be, excessive lead in traditional lipsticks so why not go for an organic and natural one so that no toxic goes into your precious body?!
So what’s your thought on these organic makeup?? A trend? Or it is THE MAKEUP in the future?!
One thing we can assure you is that, you will regret if you don’t try it… it is LITERALLY no harm to try…so WHY NOT ?!
Being a Mom is never easy, when a woman got pregnant, she will need to start taking really good care of herself … For instance, is the mom-to-be eating properly? Is she having a balanced diet?? Is she getting enough exercise?? And for whatever products she is using, she needs to be aware of the ingredients as whatever her body is absorbing, her baby is absorbing too!!
Once, there was a nurse told me that, her baby is having some kind of allergy and that she had to take the baby to visit the dermatologist to find out what is wrong, guess what?! The Dr said, because of so many addictive being added to all products, hence people get allergic very easily these days. so he suggested the baby should avoid using any chemical product to help getting rid of the allergies. The Dr also mentioned that, years ago, allergies were not that popular, because there were less addictive, as the technologies are more advanced, more addictive are added to create different effect for a products, say artificial perfume, more preserving agent to make the goods last longer, thickening agent in shampoo/ shower (concept is, the more foam it is, the cleaner you think you will be)
When you think about it, it’s true. For eating habits, women who are pregnant wouldn’t eat a lot of things…like chilly, cause the baby will be eating chilly too as it goes straight to your blood stream… same theory goes to body care for babies and moms.
For mom-to-be, you may find some stretch marks on your belly and will get some cream or body oil to get rid of it, BUT, you should be careful on what you are putting on their body/ belly, chemicals should be avoided.. even if it works… would you want your baby to absorb those unknown chemical ingredients? I suggest that you start with organic ones, to use the safest products on your belly. Organic products made with essential oil will have a natural moisturizing effect and some could even have calming effect!! Don’t have bias towards organic and think it is just a gimmick. When you found a good company with their products registered as certified organic, you can trust them, Organic ingredients should be chemical free… Meaning-No pesticides or GMObeing used during the planting period of the ingredients. You wouldn’t want to go Natural (which is half way natural as there could beGMO) then your baby will be absorbing those GMO?! just a guess but the thought is quite disturbing.
For babies to use natural/ organic product is for their best, this could help eliminating chances of babies having allergies and organic product have some good stuff for prone to allergy skin too!!
The theory of Food and Products being used on baby or pregnant woman are the same, just be careful on what you’re eating/ putting on your skin, those that will absorb into your body will be absorbed by your baby. And as fragile as a baby is, they should really be protected from harmful chemical ingredients, DON’T soak them into chemicals one they are born…
NEWS FLASH!!! There are toxic gingers in China!! If you think this is the only chemical filled food, I say you’re 100% wrong. With that much food needs to be produced in short period of time to feed the world, ginger is just one thing that they found out today that has been exported. Don’t know where they will be exported or which countries will import ginger or other food from China, but apparently, showering food with pesticides is the way to go to keep food “Fresh” for merchant who wants to earn a lot of money…
It is just one news article, not trying to scare the public, but I think it’s time for us to think, what is good and safe for us- Human Body… the “Natural” one… or the genuine Organic food?? Should we take one step further from ” Natural food/ ingredients” and start consuming Organic products to ensure our health and safety?
During my last blog, I mentioned the reason why I would only sell “Certified Organic” Product, one of the reasons is to ensure the quality of the product is up to certain standard as well as to ensure the majority of the ingredients are from organic farming. Second reason, is to differentiate TRUE organic and the FAKE ones…
Since Organic is the trend, commercial merchant want to get some market share off the Organic market, so they always state that their products are organic and made with organic ingredients, but HOW MANY PERCENTAGE of the ingredients are indeed ORGANIC???? You can claim a product as an “Organic Product” when they have one ingredient that is from organic farming or one organic essential oil. THUS, having the product as “Certified Organic” is Crucial.
Of course, everything cost money, especially if you would like to have each and every product being “Certified Organic” it will cost tons of money, which means, sometimes small companies cannot afford the cost. That doesn’t matter, any merchant who sells TRUE organic products will have every ingredient listed clearly on the label, which they will also indicate which ingredient(s) is/ are organic and which isn’t. THEN, it’s up to the consumer to decide whether they should try out those products.
Some companies will just be confusing customers with their name!! How so? By naming the brand Organic this or that, but BRAND NAME DOES NOT reflect the product ingredients itself!!
As the owner of The Organics Boutique, I of course believe that Organic/ Natural products can be as effective as the traditional mass market products, whether they are skin care or just table cleaning product… as you know during the ancient years, people were using lemon juice or vinegar to clean or to bleach or to eliminate odor and it worked wonder…
But why would I believe in Organic and WHY did I sell these products… answer is simple, they are made with natural resource, that we could eat and digest… it has to be save, that is why i chose organic instead of natural. Who knows if the “natural” is truly natural? They could have been GMO’ed. The only way I can ensure the ingredients being used are truly Natural is by choosing Organic, better yet, certified organic. I know people have doubt on the effectiveness, to be frank, before I experiment any organic products, that was exactly what I was thinking, why should I purchase Organic facial cream when the price is higher and I don’t even know if it will work, the thing is, you will never know if you never step out and try.
I only go for certified organic because there is organization monitoring these products which means that they have to have certain % of organic ingredients and it cannot have harsh chemicals in the products, so I thought, if it doesn’t work, at least I don’t have any unknown harsh chemicals in my blood stream that cannot be let out of the body system… who knows… look at the lipsticks these days, there are loads of report stated that some commercial cosmetic brands’ lipsticks contain excessive lead, of course those companies would be saying that tiny amount of lead wouldn’t harm human body, but who knows if it can be released out from our body or it will keep on accumulating inside our system.
Those companies wouldn’t tell us what chemicals that they used have exceeded the regulation/standard, SO, today we found out that there’re excessive leads in lipsticks, there might be other excessive chemicals in foundation or mascara or whatsoever, my concern is, what if these chemicals accumulate over time in our body, how will our body be affected?! Like Western medicine, there will be side effects but it won’t show right away!!
While cosmetic and skincare can be made out of Organic ingredients, then why not try them out?! There are loads of Organic Brands out there and I am sure you can find what you need too !! They don’t have to be pricey. (Brand suggestions? Low- mid price range: Lavera, Burt’s Bees, Mid-High price range: Mukti, Nvey Eco, Juice Beauty, Pangea Organics…etc)
Think again before you buy, you’re buying your health…

Egyptian Geranium with Adzuki Bean & Cranberry Facial Scrub
June 30, 2009
Hi, my name is Hector Nava. I am 17, and I live in Chicago, Illinois. I’ve been a fan of your products on Facebook for a while now. The Egyptian Geranium with Adzuki Bean & Cranberry Facial Scrub was the first ever Pangea Organics product that I used. After hearing about your products from a friend, I decided to purchase the scrub. The first time I used the scrub was in the shower after getting home from work late in the evening. I’ve used different scrubs throughout the years. One that I’ve stuck with was the Apricot one; however, the ingredients in the Apricot scrub were too harsh and rough on my sensitive skin. That limited the usage of the Apricot scrub for the sake of my skin’s health. Not more than 10 seconds passed after I applied the Pangea Organics Facial Scrub a clean, natural, fresh scent rose from the steam in the shower and into my senses. I automatically fell in love with the flavor and the fact that the ingredients were natural and did not over dry my skin.
It’s time for us to think for our best friend, our companion… our pet!! When we try to go natural on our body and food… but we are still using traditional shampoo on our beloved pet… changes should start now, they are our best friend and we should look after them as the best we can!!

Y organic you may ask… can’t we just go for Natural instead? There is a big difference between Organic and Natural, Natural is based on natural ingredient but you do not know whether during the planting process, any pesticides have been used or worst, did they use GMO with the plants?
Understand that it could be a hard decision for mommies, because both are natural ingredient based. BUT if you could afford better quality, you should go for Organic, why? The answer is simple, to apply for organic certificate, one must proves the farm is away from pollution, free from chemical (i.e. Pesticides) and GMO, they have to be planted in certain environment.
Of course people would easily be “hypnotized” or “brain-washed” by numerous commercial, claiming that their product would sting babies eye…is that true? Or they have just added another chemical ingredient to make the nerve less sensitive? We all know most of the background of those companies are pharmaceutical companies/ medical companies… little research helps to understand more of their products.
Another question is, there weren’t so many disease back then, those allergies… they don’t even exist, but why are allergies so common these days? Too many additives added into products.
To help yourself, your babies, start using organic, doesnt have to use big brand one if you can’t afford, but as a human being, we wouldnt want to put anything chemical on us… just like we don’t want to take medication if it’s not necessary.

I have a question, if organic products are similar price as chemical products, would you go for chemical ones or organic ones? consider their function and effectiveness are similar but one is risky cos u never know what the ingredient is… and that u dont know what kinda allergy u may get and u cant track the source, yet the other one is always safe to use… ?
I came across someone telling me that they need to change shampoo after using a period of time… they need to go out to search for the “right” shampoo.. they know that the reason behind the search is their scalp get used to the “ingredients” hence the scalp is not responding…having to “immune” the “active ingredients” in general shampoo…
that wont happen to organic… by organic i mean real organic shampoo and made of organic essential oil/ plant. its natural hence it will be gentle to our skin/scalp and wouldnt have the scalp resist the active ingredient in organic products.
same theory goes for dr treatment, “touchwood” if ur constantly ill and on one specific medicine, it wouldnt work on u after a period of time, you must change the formula, but it wouldnt be the same for chinese medicine becos it is “tailor-made” cleansing you inside out and start healing, same goes with organic, they will first cleanse out all the chemical on ur scalp ( it takes time of course) but soon after, you will find your hair will be shining naturally, not with the chemical wax that is in the “general” shampoo.
so would u now still go for general shampoo or u want natural shine with organic one?

“Mukti Rosehip Eye Gel
I work at a computer for up to 12 hours a day and suffer badly from puffy eyes and dark circles. I have tried just about everything,including a tiny jar of eye cream that cost $120 and only made the puffiness worse and made my eyes water and sting. A friend of mine who has beautiful skin suggested that I try the products that she uses and loves, the Mukti rosehip eye gelfor day and the rejuvenating eye balm for night. It has been a little over 2 weeks and I am already starting to see a huge difference, particularly in the puffiness, and my eyes don’t feel sore or gritty anymore either. Another bonus is that I can see a difference in my crows feet too – YAY !! I am so impressed with your products and only need to use a small amount so they should last a very long time and are great value for money for such high quality certified organic products. I am so excited to have been introduced to Mukti and am really looking forward to trying many other Mukti products.
