I’ve done several posts on organic products in the past and Erin was kind enough to send me a full-sized container of the Miessence Sunflower Body Wash to try.
Certified Organic Skin and Body Care, Baby Care, Cosmetics & Nutritional Products
I’d like you to Meet My Friend – Erin Ely, from Ely Organics. I met Erin on twitter and we’ve kept connecting through the various social networking sites that we both seem to meet up on.
I use it on a loufa in the shower and like the fact that it is Gluten-Free and moisturizes with a vitamin-rich organic sunflower oil. I just love the refreshing scent, which contains orange peel, lemon peel and lime peel oils.

In the past, I’ve touched on topics about tapping into your interests and hidden talent, and parlaying them into a career where you turn your interests into a business. Many readers or their families have become victims of the current recession, and are actively seeking gainful employment. Some, like me, are considering either retiring, or trying to determine a move to another career that will spark our interest – whether it be something entirely different from what we’ve been doing in the past, or entirely new venture.
Perhaps you are off-ramping from corporate life to take time out to raise your children.
If you have a WAHM or Momepreneur topic of interest that you’d like to share and be a Guest Blogger on Moomette’s Magnificents, please contact me.
It all started one night in March of 2005, when I was surfing the internet for information, educating myself on chemicals in body care products when I discovered miessence® products and the ONEgroup business opportunity. I had been eating organic food for about 10 years previous and in 2005, I began to understand more about the whole issue of chemicals in body care products.
You skin is your largest organic and most of what you put on your skin goes directly into your blood stream, which in a sense is more critical than when you eat something with chemicals. When you eat something, it passes through your digestive tract and is broken down, this does not happen with the things you put on your skin. The patches for birth control and nicotine, etc are a prime example of this, what you put on your skin passes directly into your blood stream. Over the years I have become more and more concerned about chemical pollution in general, not just in body care products.
I have to admit,I was not remotely interested in a network marketing type of business opportunity, as a matter of fact I have never seen a network marketing product that I would buy or use. When I found ONEgroup website and the miessence® products, I read everything I could about the company and the products. Something that really captured my attention was that the complete ingredients list were displayed on every product page. At this time, they were one of the only companies that displayed their complete ingredients lists and they were the only company with an extensive line of food standard certified organic skin and body care products. miessence® have been food standard certified organic since 2001, making them the world’s first extensive range of certified organic skin & body care products.
I am a total organic nut and a fanatic when it comes to reading ingredients lists. I would never purchase a product without seeing the full ingredients list. When I read the miessence® ingredients lists, there were only names of things I could understand, all plants, no long chemical names. I knew right then, that I had to try them.
I ordered the products and began my business all within about a 2 to 4 day period. In January 2008, I created my website: ElyOrganics – Your Source for Miessence products. I had been a stay at home mom for 15 years when I discovered miessence®. While I was not looking for a business opportunity I had been thinking about going back to work. Being home, doing my own thing for 15 years, made it very challenging for me to want to work for someone. I had grown way to independent minded for that I felt.
At the time, I was a homebirthing, attachment parenting, extended breastfeeding, homeschooling mom and I was not interested in working outside the home. After using the products and identifying with the values of the ONEgroup, selling miessence® just seemed to make sense for me. The miessence® products are something I can get behind and can feel good about offering to others and I can run my business from home. This has allowed me the flexibility to be available for my kids when they need me and the resources and time to travel when it is convenient. I get to focus on the things in life that are important to me; my family, volunteering in my community and supporting non-profit organizations. I buy carbon offsets for my home office and the ONEgroup also purchases carbon offsets for all their manufacturing and shipping of miessence® products. A percentage of all enrollment fees go to support the David Suzuki foundation.
