I was asked the other week if I sold my products in large batches.
My answer was no.
My philosophy and principles around our skincare is that not only should our products be made chemically free with only natural and organic ingredients, but they MUST also:
Our Skin is the largest organ of our body and we should treat it as sensitively as our own stomach.
Really, honestly ask yourself, how many of your current products are over 6 months old...shock...over 12 months old...be really honest...can you even remember when you bought it? Was it a few years ago? and it's STILL in your cupboard?!
I've totally been there and done the exact same thing! But it still looks fresh, smells...
Last week on Saturday 8th August, I was given the fantastic opportunity to share a short routine with all the Mums in the amazing MIB Community.
The empowerment network for Mums/Women in Business with over 60k members, founded by Leona Burton.
This was such a pleasure because this community are mums who are heroes at raising their children and providing for their families, whilst running their own businesses.
This can be TOUGH so I took the opportunity to show them a short a routine that would help assist them improve their child's SLEEP, ANXIETY, BEHAVIOUR and CONNECTION.
I am delighted at the kind responses from mums who NEEDED to see this and SO GRATEFUL that they could try something new to help them! Some mums said:
'Wow this was amazing to watch and learn how to do this to my sons they both have autism and suffer with anxiety I'm sure this would help them relax.'
'You are officially my hero what an awesome thing to post.'
It's fair to say that sometimes we can't reach our own feet, sometimes we don't have a partner at home that can help us and sometimes either we don't like our feet to be touched (not me!!) or others don't like it.
DID YOU KNOW...
Reflexology also is just as powerful and very relaxing on the hands too!?
Our feet, hands, face and ears are where we can find our nerve endings.
When we stimulate our nerve endings with specific massage, at certain points we send lovely messages to our brain to release tension and happy chemicals to help internal healing to those corresponding body parts.
We also clear the debris, rub out blockages and allow our blood and lymph circulation to run freely without a traffic jam of toxins in rubbish slowing it down.
Hand Reflexology is lovely, so here are 3 KEY Reflex Points to help support BACK PAIN.

YOU knew when they landed on your chest they needed your touch.
YOU knew it would be your hands to stroke, soothe and help them to feel calm and safe.
YOU knew it would be your arms to cuddle and squeeze them when they needed to feel secure and supported.
YOU knew it would be your heartbeat they would feel when laying on your chest, the vibration they needed to feel connected.
YOU knew your physical bond was ESSENTIAL to your baby's SURVIVAL.
YOU did not need to be told this.
YOUR BODY knew what it needed to do.
YOUR BODY always knows what your child needs...
YOU have always been responding to your child's emotional and physical needs from your own natural internal instincts.
YOU were the one to feel the intensity of their cries when your body was responding with an increasing heartrate and shock when woken multiple times in the night.
A parent and child connection is a bond that is instinctive.
YOUR reactions are based on theirs.
How's your Bouncebackability?
It's certainly been a very challenging time for us all, with the need to find SUPER INNER RESILIENCE!
Do you sometimes just find yourself feeling overwhelmed, exhausted from uncertainty or trying but not seeming to find your way through the fear, the anxiety or the overwhelm?
Does it seem easier to consume more information rather than step into creation?
This is SO TOTALLY NORMAL!
In fact, creativity really does come in waves, like the ocean.
When you feel the wave, ride it and enjoy the energy it brings.
When the tide is out, give yourself permission to rest and reflect.
Just know, another wave will always come!
So that said, here are 5 KEYS to having STRONG BOUNCEBACKABILITY!
Easier said than done right? But so true!
Because really, I like to keep perspective on my existence to help me out with this one - I am one tiny grain of sand...
Do you ever feel just totally disconnected with yourself, others and sprung tightly like a coil?
Do you want that feeling to disappear?
Is it holding you back from being the best you can be?
Are you ready to commit to yourself EVERY DAY? Wait...did you literally just think 'oh f*ck, have I got time for this? I can't commit to anything every day because I'm too busy!
Trust me, in this blog post, I will reveal to you my very own personal, daily self-care ritual that is easy to do every day and it has to be!
I run 3 businesses and raising a 5 year old as a single mum!
I know busy, I know overwhelm, I know anxiety, I know how it feels to just want to hide.
