Essential Parfumerie Evenings

As Melissa Poepping says, "When you stroll into the world of seductive, pure aromatics, I think it is safe to say you will never leave."  We have certainly never looked back to store bought perfumes (I got rid of all of mine!). And Kristy is now hosting these indulgent limited capacity evenings based on Melissas gorgeous Parfumerie book. She has all the recipes and ingredients to make your own pure natural (toxic free!) perfumes in three collections – Innocent, Classic, and Sultry. All up...

Emotion Potions! School holiday fun...

We had a blast today making gorgeous Emotion Potions with these kiddies! So cute seeing what oils they picked for themselves and taking such pride in decorating them too :) Let us know if you want to come to the next one!...

Favourite oils spotlight: Inner Child

"Stress is a mess of chaotic survival messages whipping through our body at high speed. These messages can keep us sick, tired, angry, hurt, stuck, sad, and put us into a total fog day after day. Inner Child essential oil blend releases emotions that distort memories in our cells. Think of this like a picture or video of past events where little edits were made to present something threatening, even if that was not the case. The symptoms of this vary widely, but we might notice some pa...

Oils for emotional support - do they really work?

I began using oils for the immunity. Then I started changing over to all the chemical free cleaning (some DIY, some the Thieves Cleaning line), but the surprising reason I will forever love Young Living with all my heart is the EMOTIONAL OILS. ...

Using Your Savvy Minerals Make Up

I had always used liquid stuff or a compact and eye pencils and despite the fact that I have a painting/art degree, I was scared to use those skills on my face! Now, I completely love these and it's so easy to use. Here are some great tutorials to get you started. And come to our next Savvy Class (check out our Events page HERE). They're free and fun :) See you there!Shay :)...

Savvy Minerals Make Up!

We have been falling in love with these pure mineral make ups. No talc or bismuth (fillers used by lesser mineral brands). And your skin can BREATHE. It was a bit different for me to try loose powder make ups but a pretty easy learning curve really! We want to share the tricks we've learned. Get in touch to come along - all welcome :)...

Thieves rollers

THIEVES ROLLER!!!! "WHY are we rubbing Thieves Essential Oil on our feet, putting it in our diffusers, and using it in our cleaners, sprays, detergents, and hand soaps? Why is Thieves Vitality Oil in our cough drops, and why are these oils in our supplement, Inner Defense? Because the individual oils that make up this incredible blend have been studied successfully for their ability to inhibit even the growth of multidrug resistant bacteria.Pubmed.gov is full of complicated and hard to unde...

Creamy Tumeric Milk

If you haven't had tumeric milk, it's the best — spicy, soothing, creamy and my favourite for cold weather or being under the weather. And, it's sooooo good for you. It's antiviral which helps keep your immune system strong and anti-microbial which helps treat infections in the respiratory system....

Eliza's 4th Birthday! We Reduced! We Reused! And I wasn't the grinch who stole her birthday party...

We had a great day for Eliza's 4th birthday party. I must say I was probably peaking even more than her. I don't know what it is. Part of the incentive for me signing up as a mum was to plan birthday parties. And for some strange reason I keep trying to make the cakes too. Though that was never a goal and while usually they taste OK they always they look TERRIBLE. I'm going by Pinterest standards I realise, but how else do we judge our abilities as mothers? Joking. Kind of....

My Top 5 Realistic Zero Waste Hacks

Zero Waste is impossible. I have 2 little kids, a husband, a business or 2, and a busy busy life. Does it mean it's futile to try? Or to make changes? I have done my best to overhaul our life (poor Aaron yet again!) and there have been some wins and some things that have really been more trouble than they're worth... While I don't have tons of spare time going on, I do make room for what I'm passionate about. And I also realise that not everyone is going to get passionate about this like me. B...

Frequency

Every cell in your body, every single living thing, has a vibrational frequency. When we consume things that have frequency (such as plants which are living things), we can increase our body's frequency which will increase our health. Healthy human body frequency: 62+ MHz Illness starts at 57-60 MHz Our bodies are receptive to cancer at 42 MHz Death begins at 25 MHz Essential oils have frequencies as well, which can raise our bodies' frequency. They range from 52-320 MHz One of the most...

Clean Green 2017

This has been my catch phrase coming into the New Year. It's been an interesting time for me to reflect. A year ago I was attempting to go all out Paleo for my family. Was desperate for more health and energy and it all sounded so good. But for me it was just too big a goal. It brought about some great changes which we've maintained but it did not bring me more energy. And probably made me burn out a bit with two very little kids who had fussy tendencies so then I would fall back on the crap foo...

Christmas Stockings & What To Do With Santa?

I always LOVED opening Christmas Stockings on Christmas morning. It was one of my favourite things about Christmas. Waking up to find the stocking you'd left there was mysteriously filled with all sorts of new sparkly and yummy goodies that were all mine. With my kids being 2 and 3 this Christmas I am feeling the pressure (completely self-imposed) to make sure I'm creating all the traditions that will make Christmas magical for them, but at the same time I've never been more aware of the negat...

The Better Life

I have had a couple of years of major self reflection, change, and attempting personal growth like never before. I'm letting my husband, family and friends be the judge of how much I'm actually succeeding, but I feel happier, healthier and more in control AND able to let things go than I have before, so that's gotta count for something....

Bringing in the Silly Season

I cannot tell you how excited I am about Christmas. Are you the same? Do you start writing gift lists in October and count down the days until you put up your tree? Having come from a retail background (we owned a couple of bookstores a few years ago) it was a bit ridiculous. We would order all our Christmas stuff in July. So forgive me if I think November is getting late into the season. I have a few festive recipes to share which I will add to my Facebook group. Diffuser blends and all things...

Progessence Plus

So I only have 2 of these bottles but this little beauty goes out of stock and once you've used it you do NOT want to be without it... Plus YL oils never expire so this right here is a solid investment. What is Progessence Plus...? It's a naturally derived progesterone serum with a beautiful combination of oils. I use it twice daily - a couple of drops on my neck and forearms and I love it. Progessence Plus® is, technically, a highly micronised bio-identical (human) progesterone that has a ...

The Science of Smells and How They Affect our Emotional Wellbeing

"Have you ever noticed how smells, like bread baking, can send you back to a childhood memory and all the feelings associated with your favourite grandmother? Smell accesses the limbic system of the brain which is the seat of ouremotions (Molecules of Emotion: Candace B. Peri, Ph.D) Ancient Egyptians used essential oils to clear specific emotions and recorded them on the walls of certain healing chambers. Sesquiterpenes (like in Frankincense and Sandalwood) help to increasethe oxygen in the li...

Worst Chemicals Ever

The nonprofit Environmental Working Group (EWG) and the Keep a Breast Foundation (in the USA) are sounding alarm bells about the health threat of endocrine disrupting chemicals. Of the roughly 80,000 chemicals used in everyday goods, 1,300 or so are considered endocrine disruptors, also called hormone disruptors. The nonprofits just released a report outlining the "Dirty Dozen," a list of endocrine disruptors that highlights the worst of the worst—and the ones you're most likely exposed to eve...

BUT WHERE'S THE SALAD?

So here's the thing about essential oils and your husband (or partner or whatever male you're trying to convince about oils), and this is just my personal opinion... guys just don't get it. I was recently at a web development training day that included lunch. The room was full of graphic designers (like me) and developers. Strangely, or not surprisingly at all, whatever way you want to look at it, all bar one of the graphic designers were woman, and all bar one of the developer peeps were men. ...

THE MAGICAL POWER OF SAYING "I WANT"

I have learned a lot from Laura Doyle. A LOT. Lesson number one - look after yourself. By this she means do three things a day (yes a DAY) that make you feel good and fill your emotional tank. I'm sure some of you are right now racking up all the reasons in your head why that is impossible. How that's a nice idea but there is no way you could do that. And I get that because I'm exactly the same. But when my marriage had gotten to the point where my husband and I could set our clocks by the ...

IMAGINATION & THE DREAM DAY

"Those who don't believe in magic will never find it" - Roald Dahl, The Minpins Why is it that as children we literally believe we can fly and when we "grow up" we give up on even the simplest of dreams. We make excuses for ourselves, accept that the good life is for someone else and not for us, we jump off in the tunnel when we could've waited one more train stop… I have counted and there are 5 million and 6 reasons (ahem, I do exaggerate at times…) our life is not where we thought it...

MY SKIN REVOLUTION AND MY FAVOURITE DAILY SCRUB

I'm still slightly in shock that using a combination of yummy foody oils (olive, avocado & coconut etc), simple household ingredients (like baking soda, sugar and white vinegar) and these pure little bottles of magic can make all of things I have spent a fortune on, for UNnatural products, which don't even work as well as these. Really still in shock. Why has it taken me this long to catch on? Good marketing I guess. Wanting to be cheap for sure. But then even when I finally decided it was t...

A MONTH ON OILS

Hey there, I'm writing this like a letter, I'm not sure why. But currrently I am sitting at the library waiting on some technical support for my 'real job' (not sure there is such a thing for a freelancer!) so it's the perfect time to reflect on my first month with essential oils. As I said to my first oil party attendees you would have thought that just living here in Titirangi would have had me on oils by osmosis (it's a bit hippy where we live ;) but nope. My mum had taken us to a Naturopa...

YOU CAN DO IT ALL SUPERMUM

Here's my realisation today. For ages I've been making the excuse that I can't have it all, can't do it all, shouldn't put too much on my plate... Despite my dreams for business and making a difference in the world and wanting to be a Super Mum. Among other things! I had a few little thoughts today that have shaken that idea all up, so here are a few reasons why I'm challenging that here and now. #1 Time expands. Einstein said it so it must be true! I can talk about this a lot. If you've read ...
