Coping with COVID-19 naturally

They say mental health, domestic violence and suicide will increase... it's so awful to think this is the case... a big part of me just does not want to think about it but sadly it's what happens when people are in 'lock down', isolation, mental turmoil and thrown into the unknown. We're definitely experiencing the most bizarre-est of times.  We have to supp...

No More Excuses

It’s a real awakening when you realise no matter what is happening… this is life!   Regardless of the latest news, reasons, and excuses about why this or that, this is the life… the life we are meant to be living with all its beauty and imperfections.     Now the most significant global concern is the Coronavirus and its implications. We are in uncharted ter...

Handy Sanity

Our shopping experience has changed for ever! It's rather surreal... especially when toilet paper became the most desirable shopping item! Thankfully our stores are being replenished and we've been busy making our natural hand sanitiser which has been selling like hot cakes. By popular demand I'm happily sharing a simple recipe to make a natural hand sanitis...

Let the Adventure Begin

I’ve always loved travelling and have been fortunate to visit and live in a few special places. The memories are numerous, making me smile, especially when I think of the freedom and overflow of fun times with a diverse mix of new and familiar faces.  Planning family holidays and travelling  with kids is just as much fun.   Hectic too. To keep my nerves ...

Raising Young Ladies

It’s that time of the month again . I remember feeling very awkward when my menstrual cycle began. It is so natural yet it’s disruptive, often causing abdominal pain, headaches, boob discomfort etc. You probably can relate to withdrawing from activities or just feeling very self-conscious and uncomfortable.  Dealing with our hormonal changes, periods and em...

Back to Basics: Caring for Our Kids

Hi, have you seen the latest Lion King film? It’s fabulous and was a lovely way to end our holidays! The characters, leaders and schemers, antics, soundtrack, innocence, playfulness and imagery are captivating – it’s such a wonderful   story and I concur with Mufasa  “in nature there is a delicate balance''. Getting organised for ‘back to school’ can be eas...

Warriors vs. Worriers - Which One Are You?

If you are anything like me, you’re on the go from the minute you get up. If I’m well organised its smooth sailing, but I’m normally rushing around like a headless chook to get everyone and everything done before I can make it out the door in one piece.   Motherhood is a constant juggling act... Wearing different hats on any given day at any given moment....

Back to Basics: How to Boost Your Immunity Fast

When I think about keeping well, especially over the winter months, it depends on how we look after ourselves on a regular basis. We want to be ‘well’ before the onslaught of colds, coughs, flu, allergies, viruses and all the bugs associated with the colder months.  Generally, a pro-active preventative approach saves lots of time, worry and money.  If we eat...

Nature Inside Out

I’ve been reflecting on how wonderful nature is, and how we feel when we’ve spent time outside, even just letting our feet be free occasionally. A walk or whole day outdoors is so invigorating, I’m sure you love it as much as we do, but how often? Imagine it now… big open spaces, fresh air expanding every cell… the sweet song of birds, a sparkling waterfall ...

Why Essential Oils

Essential oils and aromatherapy have been used for centuries, both for pleasure and medicinal purposes. Our environment and whole being benefits whether it is the mind, body or spirit. Slowly but surely, I’m realising how our well-being is paramount. I’ve become more aware of how mainstream household and self-care products, we typically get from the chemist ...

Why KT’s Collection?

From early on I was keen to share the doTERRA opportunity and have fun with the oils. I wanted to have a unique ‘look & feel’ for my new venture. The possibilities gave me a new zest for life… allowing me to be creative and make affordable products using the essential oils with other natural ingredients. Each drop is potent and powerful, often requiring dilu...

Living with Depression

You have every reason to be happy, but you feel the opposite. You’re not coping, and simple tasks in everyday life or just concentrating properly feels like a struggle. Unsure what to do you soldier on but know something is amiss. As a woman juggling changing priorities, working, parenting, managing the home, keeping up appearances, being positive etc takes ...
