WHICH OIL FOR WHICH SKIN TYPE?

WHICH OILS FOR WHICH SKIN TYPE? Now that Oil Cleansing and Facial + Body Oils have been fully accepted in the 'beauty' world and are becoming more common in skincare rituals (massive high five's to that!) it is good for people to know WHICH oils are good for which skin types and what their strongest properties are. So a lil' education on the matter if you find it helpful. The great thing about natural oils (think... Read More

REVIEW: MUKTI ORGANICS

MUKTI ORGANICS. This Australian made brand is just a little bit special. They are organic, sustainable and ethical. And all of the concoctions are really different and innovative. Plus everything smells delicious. I have been wanting to use the entire range for a very long time now. I am a HUGE fan of their Hair Care and think the Botanical Shampoo + Conditioner is one of the best there is. I wrote about this a... Read More

Somewhat torturous but SO good for you!

COLD SHOWERS I like to think of it as Cold Water Therapy. Like most things in life, it is often the things we refrain from doing that are going to be the best for us. I feel like I do a lot of funny little things in my daily rituals that are more than likely incredibly weird and wacky to my fellow humans but I swear that they are pivotal for my wellbeing... Things like... Read More

If you are looking to do a detox, or better still a week of cleansing, great. There is no need to... Read More

10 POWERFUL HERBS FOR THE SKIN

10 POWERFUL HERBS FOR THE SKIN “A herb is any plant with leaves, seeds or flowers used for flavouring, food, medicine or perfume.”  Herbs can be powerfully transformational and I try to incorporate them as many ways as I can into my lifestyle. Dis-ease within the body is a manifestation of a deeper physical, mental, emotional or energetic issue that then goes and shows up as lovely things like: dodgy skin, unhappy hormones, fatigued adrenals,...
