Have you done a bodymindsoul inventory?

When was the last time you did a bodymindsoul inventory? Checking into where you’re at in each of those areas? What have you been ignoring? What have you been holding onto? What did you forget about? What are you putting up with? What are you dragging around? What have you ’tried everything’ for? Where would you like to grow? It can be so easy to get caught up with having to do this and that, setting goals and what you need to do to reach your desired result, that we can forget about HOW we want the journey to be. If there’s a health and wellbeing goal you’d like to w...

Got The Winter Blues?

January can seem soooo long, and then February tends to get all the blame. The good news is, I've got an oil for you, and I know it makes a difference. One lady in our community says that since she’s been using oils, it’s the first time she feels she can get through the winter without feeling low the entire time. I diffuse citrus oils every single day for this purpose. I like to mix several of them together, or with peppermint for an energy boost. When I forget to p...

Set Yourself Up For Success

What’s your favourite part of the day? I have to say that I love mornings once everyone’s out at kindy/school/work (except Dom starts a new job soon and will also be working from home, yikes!), the puppy’s lying on my feet (toasty warm and soft!) and I can dig into my work. Between you and me, I’m often still in my PJs at this stage. I love this time because it’s full of possibility. I set myself up for success: uplifting citrus oils in the...

How do essential oils work?

Oils are volatile aromatic compounds. This means that they waft into the air (the reason you can smell a lavender bush as you walk past it). They're extracts from plants found inside roots, seeds, flowers, bark.  Now, my favourite part - they help keep the plant safe, warding away harmful pathogens and assisting with pollination  - so you literally have nature's protection right there in those pretty little bottles. They’re concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds (wah! Yes, nature has natural chemicals, they are still chemical compounds) which act as messengers within your body, giving instructions to your cells.  Interestingly, a plant's cellular structure is sim...

Do you multi-task?

Hands up if you’re a multi-tasking Queen! Did you know that your brain cannot, in fact, multitask? Ladies, there, I said it! Your brain loves to ONE TASK. You may think you’re good at multitasking but your brain actually jumps in and out of each thing you’re doing. It’s like interval training for your brain all.day.long. Or hoping in and out of tabs one after the other. Exhausting. No wonder you feel like binge eating at the end of the day or eating foods you wouldn’t have chosen that morning. Your brain is exhausted from all the decisions you’ve given it throughout the day, not to mention the constant activity. ...

Release shoulder tension. Fast.

Do you find yourself tense in the evening? Perhaps it feels like your shoulders are around your ears, or just super heavy? I get that sometimes and find it hard to go to bed on days like that, almost as though the day hasn't had a satisfying end to it yet (anyone else, or is that just me??!). So I do this. Now I do it almost every evening just because I love it so much. It's effective...

Brain hack to create new habits

Creating new habits can be hard, am I right?! But - the science of neuroplasticity shows that we can re-wire our brains. We can create new neural pathways that guide us to instil healthier habits. Here's how. Oh, and when you've watched this, pop down to the comments to let me know one new habit you'd love to adopt! Your browser does not support HTML5 video.

my favourite oil resources

Essential oils aren’t just nice smelling bottles of oils. When you start using oils this pure, this potent, you get that there’s more to them than that, that they have real therapeutic value - and knowing how to best use them will optimise your experience. This is how they become the first thing you reach for. They are effective, useful, supportive and for many, no less than life changing. Here are a few ways you can educate you...

Muscles need soothing?

after exercise or during menstruation? or to reduce feelings of tension for kids' growing legs? This oil. One of the great things about using natural options, is that you can reapply them as often as needed. Every 5 minutes, or 30, or every 2 hours or just twice a day. There’s no restriction as long as you dilute them and use them little and often. And if it’s emotional traumas you want support with, again, use this one. If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know the at I strongly believe that physical discomfort is intrinsically linked to our emotional life. Knee discomfort?...

All Natural Skin Care

Is your face cream so natural that your dog wants to lick it off thinking it’s a delicious treat?  I literally have to peel Joey's tongue off my face - I could leave it there as I know that the products I use are 100% clean so won’t poison him. But, when I’ve just enjoyed a lovely face routine, I don’t really want his sticky tongue all over (a...

the secret benefit of my natural pure-fume

Do you have a favourite perfume? It’s one of those things that can feel so personal and hard to let go of if you have a favourite! Now that I’ve switched to all natural everything, I can’t even cycle behind someone wearing perfume without squirming. Hospital entrances (in Denmark at least) ask people not to enter if wearing perfume. Hmmm… Fragrance companies aren't required to disclose ingredie...
