Why Miessence? For me the answer to that question began almost twenty years ago…
Many years ago, before we had access to all this freely available information on the internet, I remember wondering about the ingredients in hair care and skin care products.
You see due to my own health problems, my interest in natural remedies, healthy eating and ways to create better health naturally was growing and along with it, a passion for natural health and all that that entails was blooming.
At the time there was very little readily available information about the ingredients used in personal care products. But as I became more aware of the issues surrounding many of the foods that many of us eat, it began to dawn on me that if businesses weren’t doing the right thing by their customers when it came to the foods they were producing, then what hope did we have of manufacturers having any kind of conscience when it came to personal care products?
It turns out my instincts were correct!
So I began making my own skin care products about fifteen years ago using beautiful, health giving, natural ingredients such as aloe vera, plant extracts, plant butters, oils and essential oils. I even sold my products at local markets for a while.
At the time I also used the only brand of shampoo I could find that contained no sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS). I didn’t know about the other harmful ingredients commonly used in hair products, but realise now that that particular brand probably did contain some of those ingredients that my much older and wiser self wouldn’t use today. But that’s how I managed what I felt instinctively was a potential health risk for about three or four years.
Then I was introduced to a company that made products without known or suspected harmful ingredients. The company was a network marketing company and their products were both effective and much safer than any other brands that I had come across. So I joined the company and from that point on my family were 100% users. We happily used only this brand of products for thirteen years and know that the use of those products did dramatically reduce our exposure to many commonly used, harmful chemicals during that time.
However one thing bothered me during this time and it was the fact that this company used some synthetic, albeit supposedly safe ingredients. Even though there were world leading experts, toxicologists and scientists who said that these ingredients were safe, in the back of my mind there was always a niggling doubt.
The doubt was there because my belief is that nature has provided us with everything we need to be healthy and my instincts tell me not to trust science. I’m not a fan of science or scientists as most science is based on theory even though it is made out to be fact.
So for me, in my own mind, I had decided that I would stay with this company because their products were definitely more effective and safer than any others I had found. I would continue to use their products unless I found something better, and until such time as I found a company that made products that were more compatible with my beliefs about nature and science, and that were more natural and safer for me and for our fragile environment.
That’s where Miessence comes in.
I first came across Miessence not long after the company was created just over ten years ago and I watched it with interest. I wondered if this company was for real and if their products were truly organic. I wondered if they would survive and thrive or whether they might collapse within a few years, leaving their representatives and product users stranded as most new network marketing companies do.
I have to admit that I was immediately drawn to their philosophy and their natural, organic products, but I didn’t do anything about it. Over the last ten years every now and then, something would trigger a thought about them and I’d check out their website to see if they were still there and if their product range had grown. I’d have a look at their ingredients and wonder….
Meanwhile I was building a small team in my chosen network marketing company, secure in the knowledge that my company was a survivor at over twenty years old and financially sound. I also found my loyalty to this company growing as it became a part of my life and I attended events and got to know more people in the business.
However at the same time I watched Miessence not only survive, but thrive and grow over its first ten years. I’d look at their ingredient lists online and I’d pick up their products whenever I saw them in health shops, curious, but unwilling to break my loyalty or use other products until I knew that Miessence was here for good.
You see, one thing I’d learned from being in a network marketing business, was that most network marketing companies fail within their first five years in business and still more within ten years. But, if a network marketing company makes its first decade then it’s a survivor!
So as Miessence celebrated it’s tenth anniversary, fate caused me to stumble across that fact and their tenth birthday offer to join for free. I made the decision to join and finally, after many years of wondering, try some of their products.
The first products I bought were a mixture of samples: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body creme, moisturiser and foundation. I also bought some toothpaste and mouthwash to try.
I sampled all these products and I fell in love!
I fell in love with the fragrances, the flavours and the feel of these products. I fell in love with them because I’ve been madly, head over heals in love for many years with many of the glorious, natural ingredients that Miessence uses. These are the same ingredients that I used all those years ago in my own products (but better quality, raw and organic) and some of those are the health giving, beautifully fragrant and powerful essential oils that I massaged my clients with for years in my business as a massage therapist.
The fragrances and ‘naturalness’ of these products had me hooked.
The other deciding factor for me was the almost instant, positive result I had with a Miessence moisturiser.
When I joined Miessence I had a ‘thing’ growing on my nose. It was right on the end of my nose, slightly to one side. It had been there for about eighteen months and looked kind of like a blister. All of a sudden, over a few months prior to joining Miessence, it had started to grow which had me worried and I was trying to decide what to do about it.
When I received my first order from Miessence I began using the sample packet of Rejuvenating Moisturiser and I fell in love with it’s feel and it’s fragrance immediately. I never even considered that it might make a difference to the ‘thing’ on my nose.
But it did!
Within a few days that ‘thing’ was gone. Completely gone! I couldn’t believe it and that is what really sold me on the Miessence products.
What I’ve learned since joining is that Miessence products are 100% natural, raw products that use organic ingredients certified to food standards. That means you could eat them if you wanted to and for me that makes them something that I can believe in 100%.
I believe that God and/or nature put everything on this planet that we need to live healthy lives. This planet can provide everything we need to have beautiful skin, healthy hair, awesome teeth and healthy bodies without synthetic, man made chemicals and Miessence have created their products in the best way possible from those God given ingredients. These are products that are not only effective and safe for people and the environment, but that are full of the vitality and life force that comes from raw, undamaged, beautiful organic natural ingredients.
Miessence, their products and all that this company stands for is aligned with my paradigm and it feels amazing to finally be part of a company that I truly believe in.
