Sadimo i Rastimo by Nela


Natural products really are amazing and very versatile – my intention is to show you how wonderful these products can be so that you feel inspired to at least embrace as much of their natural goodness as possible. As a part of my natural skincare edit, so far I've reviewed following natural Bosnian brands which feature organic handmade products: Maza (here), Theca (here) and Omnia Natura (here). Today I'm introducing you to a lovely local brand called Sadimo i Rastimo by Nela, a charming young woman who makes all her products from ingredients she grows in her own garden. What caught my attention about it was the fact a reader recommended their natural deodorants and when I took a look myself, I've also noticed natural toothpaste is available (for adults and for kids), face scrub and also herbs and spices and even a pesto. I really like the fact the owner (Nela) has branched out and took her passion not only towards skincare but also expanded into the gastronomy. Taking care of yourself inside-out makes sense. 


I'd like to start with the Face Scrub (210ml | $5) the epitome of versatility! It's a pot filled with lovely ground almonds, sunflower, oats, chamomile, sage and mint. It's basically a dry blend which you can use on its own (gently rub on wet face) or mix with a ‘wet’ base to get a scrub-like paste. I've mixed it with gentle face washes (NutriBiotic and La Roche-Posay) so I got a lovely thick consistency. But it can also be used with a milk or yogurt or even honey if you're completely going down the natural route. It smells mostly of chamomile, very calming. It's very gentle thus suitable for sensitive skin.

Zubomir Toothpaste (70ml | $7) is awesome! Let's not kid ourselves – I'll always have a tube of Sensodyne in my bathroom but I really enjoyed all the benefits of a natural version. Inside of a glass jar you get a greenish/grayish colored paste rather similar to regular toothpaste in texture and smell. I chose eucalyptus essential oil for flavor and smell (there's also sage, mint, sweet orange and clove). You can scoop the desired quantity with a spoon or toothbrush and brush away. I really like the fact you don't get dry mouth afterwards (which happens to me most time whilst using regular toothpaste) and the freshness sticks around for longer! It's also really good to rub it into gums and treat them as well. I haven't noticed any additional whiteness of my teeth but breath has certainly improved – soo fresh all the time! My husband's little sister tested the Junior Toothpaste (70ml | $5) and she loved it – it tastes of bubblegum, which kids really like. And, since it's completely natural, parents don't need to worry if kids swallowed any whilst brushing their little teeth – even the essential oils this toothpaste contains are there in the smallest ratio possible. 

My Natural Deodorant (70ml | $6) is made with coconut and shea butter (can be made completely out of coconut butter) with the addition of lavender essential oil (you can also choose from fir, pine, ylang-ylang, mint and sage essential oils). It's of a white color and the lavender isn't too strong as it mixes with the lightly sweet coconut scent. You apply it on freshly cleansed and damp armpit skin – you scoop it up and tap gently. I'm really glad to say it truly doesn't stain clothes. Most of my tops are black, grey or navy and they're stain-free as are my white tees. I'm really happy with how gentle is towards the skin, totally non-drying. My pits are very sensitive and not only that I haven't had any irritations – my underarm skin is incredibly soft and smooth. Even shaving became easier – no ingrown hair! It lasts during a regular day but physical activity is too much for it to handle.

I'm really impressed with everything I've tried and I recommend you to check out the Sadimo i Rastimo Facebook page (here) + I'm happy to report an official website is also in works. And this isn't all as I received a lovely wild garlic pesto (also known as bear's garlic and Allium ursinum). I cannot wait to share a recipe I made with it – so aromatic and delicious!

  • Prirodni proizvodi su stvarno divni i kada god pisem o njima moja je namjera da vam na svom primjeru pokazem njihove dobrobiti, koliko su zaista korisni a ne nuzno i skupi. Nadam se da cu nekoga uspjeti dovoljno inspirisati da u svoj zivot i rutinu ukljuci sto vise prirodnih proizvoda sa divnim, cistim sastojcima. Do sada sam pisala o Maza (ovdje), Theca (ovdje) i Omnia Natura (ovdje) prirodnim brendovima iz BiH koji nude visokokvalitetne organske proizvode. Danas cu vas pocastiti uvodom u proizvode Sadimo i Rastimo by Nela – iza kojih stoji jedna sarmantna mlada zena koja sastojke uzgaja u svojoj basti. Mogu i moram se zahvaliti svojim citateljicama koje su mi skrenule paznju na Nelu prvenstveno zbog njenih prirodnih dezodoransa a ono sto je meni zapalo za oko jeste sto se nije ogranicila samo na preparativu vec zalazi i u gastro kutak. Osim dezica u ponudi su prirodne paste za zube (za odrasle ali i djecu), piling/ prah za ciscenje lica, kantarionovo ulje, zacini i pesto. Njega iznutra ka izvana itekako ima smisla.
  • Piling/ prah za ciscenje lica (210ml | 8KM) je proizvod sa kojim bih zapocela svoje dojmove i multipraktik je u pravom smislu rijeci. Radi se o suhoj mjesavini usitnjenih badema, suncokreta, zobenih pahuljica, kamilice, zalfije i nane. Ovaj prah mozete samostalno koristiti preko mokrog lica ujutro i navecer ili ga pomijesati sa nekom ‘mokrom’ ili kremastom bazom da bi dobili smjesu kojom mozete tretirati cijelo lice bez da se proizvod rasipa. Ja sam prah mijesala sa svojim gelovima za umivanje (NutriBiotic i La Roche-Posay) kako bih dobila finu pastu za pilingovanje. Ali ako zelite potpuno prirodan proizvod mozete ga pomijesati sa kiselim mlijekom, jogurtom ili medom. Najvise mirise po kamilici, umirujuce. Dosta je njezan spram koze i vjerujem da bi odgovarao osjetljivom tipu.
  • Zubomir klasicna pasta za zube (70ml | 12KM) je jedan super proizvod! Biti cu potpuno realna i reci cu vam da cu uvijek u kupaonici imati svoju Sensodyne pastu ali sam impresionirana ovom prirodnom verzijom i njenim dobrobitima. Unutar staklenke se nalazi pasta zelencasto-sivkaste boje koja je teksturom i mirisom dosta slicna klasicnim pastama. Ja sam odabrala etericno ulje eukaliptusa (vi mozete birati i izmedju zalfije, mente, slatke narandze i klincica). Pasta se koristi tako sto cete cistom kasicicom ili cetkicom za zube zagrabiti pastu i ocistiti svoje zubice kao sto inace cinite. Svidjelo mi se sto mi nakon koristenja ova pasta nije isusila usnu duplju (a to mi se cesto desava sa standardnim pastama za zube) i osjecaj svjezine traje dosta duze u ustima. Nisam primjetila da su zubi bjelji ali se dah definitivno popravio i mnogo je svjeziji. Nije lose nekada pastu utrljati direktno u desni, imam osjecaj da je moje desni ovo osnazilo. Mladja sestra mog muza je testirala Junior pastu za zube (70ml | 8KM) i malenoj se dopala jer ima ukus i miris zvakacih guma. A posto je pasta potpuno prirodnog sastava, roditelji nemaju brige da li je dijete tokom koristenja progutalo – cak su i koristena etericna ulja prisutna u jako malim kolicinama. 
  • Moj je Prirodni deo sa shea/kokos maslacem (70ml | 10KM) a postoji i verzija samo od kokos maslaca (8KM) kojem sam odabrala etericno ulje lavande za miris (mozete birati jos izmedju jele, bora, ylang-ylanga, nane i zalfije). Bijele je boje a miris lavande uopste nije napadan posto se mijesa sa suptilnom slatkocom kokos maslaca. Nanosi se prstima na cistu, vlaznu kozu pazuha tapkajuci ili njezno masirajuci. Vecina mojih majica je crne, sive ili teget boje i niti jedna nema tragove od dezodoransa – cak su bijele majice cisto bijele ispod pazuha. Mene je dojmilo kako je ovaj dezic njezan spram koze i kako je njegovao tokom koristenja. Inace su mi pazuha osjetljiva a sada je cak i brijanje olaksano posto je koza nahranjena (nema uraslih dlacica!). Dovoljan je za svaki dan ali pri fizickoj aktivnosti ipak popusta.
  • Uopsteni dojmovi su pozitivni! Iskreno preporucujem da posjetite Sadimo i Rastimo Facebook stranicu (klik ovdje) + drago mi je procitati da je i oficijelna web stranica u izradi. A nisam zavrsila ovu pricu posto sam od Nele dobila i pesto od srijemusa (divljeg luka, poznatog i kao  Allium ursinum). Jedva cekam da sa vama podijelim recept sa ovim aromaticnim pestom!
