The Truth About Sugar

There has been a lot of hype around sugar of late and rightly so! This sweet stuff makes its way into many of our supermarket shelf products, at times unbeknown to the average consumer. Why is it added you may ask? Sugar not only acts as a preservative, but it also adds sweetness and masks undesirable sour or bitter flavours in foods. This, and the fact that it is cheap to produce, makes it a desirable additive for producers to include in processed foods. Sweet foods are also something the majority of the population have a preference for and it is understandable why…did you know sugar is actually 8 times more addictive than cocaine?! Yes…believe it! Sugar, a legal substance, is so addictive

Oils to Moisturise

It is important to replenish the oils in the skin, so this is when I use rosehip oil to moisturise. A beautiful, natural oil, full of essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins, I once read that this is a part of Miranda Kerr’s beauty secrets. Aiding with fine lines and known to reverse the aging effects on your skin, this is daily ritual is a non-negotiable part of my routine. There are now many different varieties available on the market, some with lots of additives, so make sure you opt for an organic version and read the label. Want help on finding the best moisturiser for you?

Yin Yoga

Yoga is an ancient Indian practice that has been around for thousands of years, but has exploded into popularity throughout Australia, especially in the past 10 or so years. Having experimented with many of these different styles myself over the past 7 years, it wasn’t until a few years ago, that I stumbled across Yin yoga. I have to admit I really didn’t enjoy my first ever Yin class. It was much slower than the other forms of yoga I had done previously, and I soon became impatient and frustrated at the lack of flow. But it wasn’t long until I was fully converted. Like so many of us, I lead a predominantly Yang life, with a never ending to do list, places to go and people to see, so I quick

Why I Don't Wear Black...

About 5 years ago now I vowed to stop buying black articles of clothing. I did a massive overhaul of my closet (which was predominantly black) and made a serious attempt to begin to introduce more colour into my world. Beginning on my spiritual journey I was learning about the importance of colour and the energy attached to the colours you wear which impacts upon how you feel. At first I struggled, working in a corporate job...I had the black suit, black skirts, black tops and of course the LBD (little black dress). I had black accessories, black shoes and black lingerie. As I begun to wear more colour however, I noted how much brighter I would feel on the inside also! Gradually phasing out

Golden Lattes

So what's all the hype?! These hot milk drinks get their obvious name from their colour as a result of the turmeric which is blended with ginger, cinnamon and black pepper. Having been around for centuries, this ancient Ayurvedic drink is quickly becoming popular in cafes across the country. A great alternative to caffeinated drinks, the benefits of turmeric are vast, and include but are not limited to; assisting with the relief of colds, flus, sore throats, diabetes, IBS, arthritis, depression, anxiety and pain. So this winter why not warm yourself up with a golden latte that has the additional benefit of giving your immune system a boost!? Have you tried a golden late yet? Tell us what you

Me Time

Something that I believe is very important is to schedule in regular ‘me time’. In the fast paced world that we live in, and often feeling the need to constantly please and meet the needs of others, it’s rare that we refuel ourselves. This doesn’t have to be expensive or take too long, but a concerted effort to prioritise this in your life will make a massive difference. Some believe they are being selfish by taking time out for themselves, I believe you’re being selfish by not. In order to be able to give to those who you love, you must ensure that you have given to yourself first and foremost. If you don’t have your supplies topped up...what good will you be to anyone else? There are many

Dry Body Brushing

When I jump into the shower, before I turn on the water, it’s time to dry body brush, which is an ancient Ayurvedic tradition. Your skin being your largest organ understandably needs its own care regime as well. Using a natural bristle, bamboo brush and working with long strokes up your legs and arms toward your heart, not only exfoliates the skin (removing the dead skin and encouraging cell rejuvenation) but also improves lymphatic circulation around the body and boosts your immune system. It can also act as a stress and cellulite reducer! Have you dry body brushed? How do you care for your largest organ? Want to know more?

Secret Women’s Business

Now that I have your attention – let’s talk sanitary products! Men, if you have daughters, then I urge you to read on also! For me personally, I never considered questions around the how, what and where tampons and pads are made until I began to work on detoxing ALL areas of my life. We all know that our skin is the biggest organ, and that it is extremely permeable, absorbing everything we come into contact with including the concoctions we smear onto ourselves and the quality of the air in our environment. So once you get a grasp of this, you then need to understand that only 1/10th of an inch is separating the inside of you from potential harmful toxins on the outside of you. As general aw

Concomitant Healing

Originating in Ancient Egypt, this unique form of healing relieves physical ailments which so often result from our physical and emotional blockages. Releasing these points of tension within the muscles, results in increased energy flow throughout the body, as the healer is guided to follow a unique sequence. The correct amount of pressure is applied to each precise point, using either the thumb or fingers, in order to release the stuck issue. This is the essence of concomitant healing. In order to achieve the best possible results, it is highly recommended that 3 consecutive healing sessions are scheduled. Want to know more, contact me or book in today!?

Decluttering Your Home

I’m a big fan of regular clean outs. It enables you to keep check on what you have, what you’re using and therefore what you actually need. In a consumerism world, too many of us acquire way more than we actually need to survive. We go for creature comforts and believe that the more we have the better we are a type of status. The truth is the more you have, the more cluttered your space, the more smothered your energetic field and usually the more chaotic your head is. Space enables the freedom to think, to ponder possibilities and to open yourself up more, figuratively speaking. There is nothing worse than entering someone’s house and that feeling of claustrophobia you experience when look
