My relationship with my body has changed. I used to consider it as a servant who should obey, function, give pleasure. In sickness, you realise that you are not the boss. It is the other way around. / Federico Fellini /

How many of us have experienced this? We push our bodies to their limits. We think we are indestructible. We think we are eternal. The reality is that our bodies can only take so much. Drinking, smoking, poor food choices, stress, exposure to toxins, strenuous physical activity, lack of sleep…these all contribute to our bodies eventually screaming out. “STOP” Much like Federico Fellini, my relationship with my body has changed. I have absolutely pushed my body beyond it’s limits, and…

Food Changes Everything / Joshua Rosenthal /

It really does.⠀ I remember a time where I never gave a second thought to what or when I ate. The only things I did think about were “this tastes good, give me more” or “I’m hungry now, what can I eat to snack on quickly” or “I’ll skip breakfast because I’ve no time and I’ll just eat a chocolate bar in the car on the way to work”. Can anyone relate?⠀ ⠀ In my my early thirties, I started…

Gluten & dairy free snacks! Leda Banana Bars

It’s morning or afternoon tea time and you really need a pick me up. And plain fruit isn’t cutting it. So in the past, I would have a biscuit, some salty chips, lollies, anything to give me a spike in sugar or salt (or both) and I was happy for about 30 minutes. ⠀ Nowadays, I have improved my snack choices so my energy levels last a lot longer and I usually munch on a Carman’s Kitchen muesli bar, some…

Noosa Basics Deodorant Paste

It’s been heating up in Melbourne of late, so the sweat pits have been getting a good work out. 😅 I’ve previously tried a wide range of different spray and paste organic deodorants to keep me feeling fresh and dry throughout the day. And not all natural deodorants work that’s for sure. To find out my top picks, be sure to check out my previous posts on Axilla paste by Black Chicken Remedies and a wonderful luxe spray by Mukti…

Eco Store Dishwasher Powder

I have been using traditional dishwasher tablets and gel pouches for a long time now. And hadn’t thought much of it.⠀ Until I read a stat which made me take notice and start thinking more seriously.⠀ “In a 12-month period in Australia, 2072 children were admitted to hospital due to poisoning.” This was due to ingestion of either medicines or household chemicals, including dishwashing tablets which look like lollies in pretty pouches.⠀ With my daughter starting to crawl all over…

Andalou Naturals Hairspray

Are you like me and need to tame that frizz and keep your locks well under control? It’s been the story of my life. Flyaways, frizz… I’ve been dealing with it for years. And I have gone through a lot of hairspray cans in my time. Yep, you know the ones – where you have to scrunch your nose, and hold your breath for fear of breathing in and choking, until the hazy residue gently settles all around, all over…

Food Forage

There is a local backyard food growing revolution happening. 👏 Consumers are becoming more and more informed about their food choices and wanting to go back to basics, with many families growing a small patch of veggies. It’s a wonderful way to save money, eat nourishing healthy food and teach your children about gardening in the fresh air. The reality is not everyone has the space or the time to do so. Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy…

Mukti Botanique Deoderant

A natural deodorant spray that actually works? I found one!!! And it’s in the most divine packaging ever. Double tick! Natural deodorants absorb moisture without blocking under arm glands and neutralise body odour by eliminating bacteria. A while I ago, I posted about how I use Black Chicken Remedies – a paste based deodorant and it works great! I still highly recommend it. Since then (and for a long time before), I’ve been on the hunt for a spray version also…

Want a soap free shampoo and conditioner?

A soap-free natural shampoo that still lathers?!?! And is good for both us humans, and our pets. 🐶 Well I found a beauty. Interested? Keep reading to find out more, as well as our special offer. We are conditioned to believe that the only way to have clean locks is for our products to lather. Whilst shampoos that lather do clean, the ingredients used to create lather may not be good for us. Shampoo, like many cleansers, is primarily made…
