Which Cleanser Is Right For Your Skin & The Season Of Life You Are in Today?

Every woman I know cleanses their skin at least once a day, but many have given very little, if any, thought to their choice of cleanser & the impact that this choice is having on their overall skin health. There are essentially two main cleansing groups, Foaming Cleansers* & Cream Cleanser; so which cleanser is [...]

Massage and Yoga; Complete Synergy.

When we step onto the mat, alongside us comes our emotional and physical habits. Throughout life, these patterns can bring structural and muscular misalignment, which can greatly impact the joy our yoga practice brings to our lives. The Western notion of ‘practice makes perfect’ often creeps onto the mat creating an expectation that yoga asanas [...]

Moon Time; a time of restoration & nourishing self care.

Throughout the ages, women have bled each month just as we do today, only the beliefs & habits surrounding this 'Moon Time' has changed dramatically. In times past, it is said that all women within a community would bleed in time with the new moon & so a monthly ceremony of 'moon time' retreat was held [...]

Mother Daughter Wisdom

The mother-daughter relationship is at the headwaters of every woman’s health. Our bodies and our beliefs about them were formed in the soil of our mother’s emotions, beliefs, and behaviours. Even before birth, our mother provides us with our first experience of nurturing. She is our first and most powerful female role model.   It is from her that we learn what it is to be a woman and care for our bodies. Our cells divided and grew to the beat of her heart. Our skin, hair, heart, lungs, and bones were […]

Eczema Update

A few months back i wrote about my ongoing dilemma with my children’s skin. For many many months now, both of my children have been suffering terribly from eczema & i have been on a quest to help their poor little skin heal. We have tried a gluten free, dairy free, egg free diet (otherwise known as the ‘fun free’ diet by my husband). They have been slathered in coconut oil, bathed in olive oil & drinking pure water ….all to no avail. Then suddenly….it disappeared! […]

Products recommended for skin health in your late teens & early 20’s predominantly focused on balancing oil to prevent congestion, and many people incorrectly carry these routines into their 30’s 40’s and beyond. After the age of 20, there is diminished functioning of the sweat and oil glands meaning […]
