Have you ever seen something for the first time and said--yes! With NYR Organic, that is exactly how I felt. I became convinced of the need to take more care about the personal care items we use on our skin while we began the GAPS Diet a little over 2 1/2 years ago.
Trying to find items that are both safe *and* effective has felt like knocking my head against a brick wall. But not anymore. Once I got the chance to try some samples, the quality of the products absolutely blew me away. I have never been so excited to wash and moisturize my face!
NOTE: As of now, I am no longer representing NYR Organic. While I still think very highly of their products--they really are wonderful--I am now on a new detox protocol, addressing Vitamin A toxicity, which involves a new direction in the kind of skincare I want to use. And on this new protocol, my skin is actually soft enough again to use inexpensive coconut oil as a moisturizer, believe it or not! -Eileen, 9/29/2019

I first heard of NYR Organic on a very special day--my husband’s and my 20th wedding anniversary. My husband was supposedly working that day, but he surprised me in the late morning by bursting through the front door with a dozen roses. He took me out on a wonderful, romantic dinner date, and as we drove home, we stopped to get gas. As I sat in the car waiting for him, I picked up my phone and saw a post from a blogger in an online group we both participate in. In her blog post, she announced that she had just signed up with the company as a consultant.
She wrote about how she had been using the products for a year, and how much she liked using them. She wrote about the history of the company, how it had begun as a little brick and mortar shop in London back in 1981. How it has been at the forefront of safe, natural organic skincare and essential oils in the UK and beyond for over 30 years.
I was instantly drawn in, and knew I wanted to learn more about becoming a consultant. (You can watch me open my consultant kit on video here).
The thing that really clinched my interest, (apart from being captivated by the look of the cute cobalt blue glass jars) was when she discussed the company’s high standards for safe ingredients.
You see, like I mentioned above, our family recently completed 2 1/2 years on the GAPS Diet. One important component of the diet is to stop using personal care products that contain toxic ingredients on our bodies. Our skin is our largest organ, and the things we apply to it sink in and eventually enter our bloodstream. As hard as it was for us to make the necessary changes in our foods for the diet to work effectively, I think this aspect of ditching the typical unhealthy products and trying to find decent, healthful replacements that really work has been much harder.
As much as I love coconut oil, it really just doesn’t cut it as a facial moisturizer for me. Once it sinks in, after just a few minutes, the skin on my face returns to its usual dry, flaky texture.
So, when my friend offered to send me some samples of the NYR Organic products, I gladly said “yes!” and when they arrived, and I first tried them, well, it is hard for me to put into words how much I absolutely LOVED them.
NOTE: As I mentioned in my note above, now that I am on a diet that is low in carotenoids--the Vitamin A Detox Diet--my skin is actually soft enough again to be able to use plain old refined coconut oil as my moisturizer. Much more economical!
The first thing that blew me away was the beautiful scent of all the samples. I have had times in my life when I have been chemically sensitive, and synthetic perfumes and air fresheners still smell very bad to me. Thankfully they don’t make me feel instantly sick anymore. But I don’t like them, and don’t want to apply them to any part of my body.
But when I tore open the sample of rose oil, and inhaled, I felt like I was smelling one of the fragrant roses in our front yard. The smell was so clean, fresh and pure. It left me feeling exhilarated.
NYR Organic was the first certified organic health and beauty company in the U.K. They have the largest range of certified organic health and beauty products. They have been in business for over 30 years--they know what they are doing!
NYR Organic started as Neals Yard Remedies in 1981, and from the start, they grew and distilled their own top quality essential oils to use in their products. Neals Yard Remedies has the largest selection of certified organic essential oils available from one company. Which is saying a lot, as the requirements for organic certification in Europe and the UK are much more strict than here in the US. They are expanding their product line of essential oils in the US more each year.
They are not a detached broker for essential oils, as many companies are, instead they grow the plants themselves in the optimal locations for each plant worldwide, or partner very closely with the farmers who grow for them. They can trace every product’s herbal ingredients back to the actual farms where they are grown. They closely monitor and test every batch of essential oils multiple times throughout the production process. There is no possible way they could more closely supervise the development of their essential oils to ensure the highest quality. While they do not recommend internal use without supervision from a healthcare practitioner, oils from the farms they use are prescribed by MD/aromatherapists in France, with fantastic results.
All of their products are formulated with care, avoiding high risk and controversial chemical ingredients found in most mainline brands, and even some of the "healthy" looking brands found in the stores. The company has won awards from the EWG/Skin Deep Database and other health organizations for their high quality, safe products. The awards just keep rolling in.
