Water makes up approximately 70% of an adultís body
When a baby is born their body weight is made up of approximately 80% water
Drinks that contain caffeine (soft drinks, coffee, tea) can act as a mild diuretic and prevent water from reaching the areas of your body where you need it most
When water is pure it has a pH level of 7 so it is neither acidic or basic
Wherever water goes it carries chemicals, minerals and nutrients
Water covers 70-75% of the Earthís surface
The majority of the Earthís fresh water is underground in aquifers
There is approximately 326 million cubic miles of water on the Earth but humans can use only approximately 3 tenths of this water
When you first feel thirsty you have already lost approximately 1% of your bodyís water

Don't you love this title? We were discussing our products in HQ yesterday and one of our team members came up with this line. Of course it made us laugh but it also made us think about the effectiveness of organic skincare. Some people feel that they are compromising on results in order to choose organic skincare, not with MOS! When we were in our testing phase all those years ago our goal was to create skincare that was MORE beautiful & effective than the most popular, and expensive, skincare in the world....And to make it organic. We are so proud of our products, they produce wonderful results, improve your skin, smell great without overpowering sensitive noses and....Don't panic it's organic!

Are you living on the Sunshine Coast and looking for some family fun? On the weekend the team visited Strawberry Fields where you can pick your own strawberries (or buy them pre-packed), play on the playground, run on the lawn, you can even pack your own picnic to enjoy with the family. The absolutely gorgeous shop sells all sorts of strawberry snacks, including home-made strawberry ice-cream with big chucks of strawberries. It's free to visit and it's a place the entire family will want to go back to, so if you live nearby and you are looking for an affordable family activity Stawberry Fields is a great choice. We loved it!

There has been a long standing debate as to whether organic food is more nutritious for our bodies, the results can go either way dependent on who conducts the study. Here is our opinion...choosing to eat organic food is not necessarily about what is "in" the food, it's about what is "not in" the food. For example do you know an apple skin can have as many as 24 chemicals on it? (And that is after washing) So when you read these studies don't just think about it from a nutrient perspective think about what you are NOT eating because that is the real benefit of organic food.

It's Essential Oils all the way! Let us explain why, Essential Oils are harvested directly from the plant and contain health and healing benefits, Fragrant Oils are made from synthetic substances and smell nice. This is the reason Essential Oils are more expensive than Fragrant Oils but they are certainly worth the extra dollars. If you are just starting out and experimenting with aromatherapy start with Lavender and Eucalyptus, the uses are phenomenal and they are essential to your first aid kit.

Last week the MOS team went to see a disturbing, but necessarily informative, documentary entitled "Bully". While it was sad to watch, and horrifying in places, this movie effectively communicates a problem that our children are faced with at school. According to the Bully website "13 million kids will be bullied in the US this year" and everyday "3 million kids will be absent from school", these children are scared, they feel alone and the rate of suicide is sickening. Please take the time to see Bully, please educate your children about bullying, surely enough is enough.

Ahhhh food! We love it and it's fair to say that at MOS HQ we are obsessed with finding healthy vegetarian meals that the family will enjoy. Of course this means that our shopping bills can be over the top so this month we have put a $15 per meal limit on our shopping. The kids loved this Shepherds Pie so we thought we would share:
Ingredients:
1 Carrot Grated (approx 10c)
1 Zucchini Grated (approx $1)
1 Finely Chopped Red Capsicum (approx $1)
1 Cup Peas (approx 50c)
Mashed Potatoes (approx $2.50 plus another $1 for milk and butter)
1 packet of Quorn Vegetarian Mince (approx $6)
2xCups Veg Beef Stock (approx $1.50)
2xCups Tomato Pasta Sauce (approx $1)
Total Approx. $14.60 Maybe cheaper if you can get items on special
Method:
Make your mash potato and put aside for now, place Grated Carrot, Zuccini, Finely Chopped Red Capsicum, Beef Stock, Quorn Mince and Pasta Sauce in a saucepan, leave to simmer for approx 20 minutes (add water if you need more moisture). Add peas to the mince recipe and place in a baking dish, cover with the Mash potato and bake at 180 for approximately 20 minutes.
You will notice we say approximately to most things, that's because this is a flexible recipe and allows you to make use of what you have in the cupboard. For example you can use tomato paste and water if you don't have pasta sauce, you can stock cubes if you don't have liquid stock. A yummy recipe that has hidden veggies...enjoy!

When it comes to beautiful, glowing skin it's really important to get the basics right, and the basics start on the inside. Here are 3 things you can do to help your skin starting today:
1. Drink more water, 8 glasses a day of purified water will make such a difference to the way you look and feel
2. Drink fresh juices, not the reconstituted juice at the supermarket, go with juiced carrots, cucumbers, celery, whatever you like
3. Try and eliminate sugar, we are beginning to realise that sugar has a downside but over the coming years we predict a massive awakening to the dangers of sugar, so why not stay ahead of the game and eliminate sugar now
