“My head is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never miss me, and that what misses me was never meant for me" - Imama al-shafi’i.
So often we spend our time focussing on other people and their needs because we’re told that doing anything else is a selfish act.
Well I completely disagree and I believe that focussing on making sure our needs are met gives us more space and more time to be fully present and engaged with others.
Sleep is a funny old business.
I have spent many years trying to get my son to sleep. His approach to sleep is much like his current approach to brushing his teeth - sporadic and sometimes nonexistent I have spent many hours working out what stops him.
I know what it’s like to have months and months of broken sleep where your brain stops working properly during the day from total sleep exhaustion.
4 years of chronic sleep deprivation with my son and then 2 years later a similar situation with my old, ill dog I know how debilitating lack of sleep can be to functioning optimally.
As a highly sensitive person there are certain factors that I know do affect me and I’d like to mention those before I get to talk about the nutritional aspects of sleep.
>> ➡️Here’s a list of a few things that affect my sleep:
We live in a complicated society where so much of what's on offer to us isn't as it first seems.
What does that mean? It means that the products we use, the water we drink and the food we eat isn't always necessarily ok for us to consume.
So, I wanted to talk a little bit about toxins and how they affect our mental, emotional and physical health. I feel this information is critical to empower you so you can make informed choices for the health of you and your family.
Whilst this isn’t the most glamorous of topics, I want to stress just how important it is for you all to be aware of the most common toxins in your environment so you can avoid them and reduce the toxic load in your liver, brain and central nervous system.
This isn’t an extensive list of toxins in our environment but just the most commons. I don’t want to overwhelm you!
Christmas! It's like marmite, you either love it or you hate it.
In any case preparation is key and I wanted to share with you my favourite ways to handle Christmas so that you’re prepared for the season.
Each of us have different family dynamics so some of us will have much more supportive families than others.
For those of you who do have supportive families and friends, lets take a moment to celebrate that because unfortunately its not as common as it should be. so.. YAY for support and back-up!
Lime essential oil is the oil of Joy & Zest for life.
Lime is the oil for those of us who have been weighed down by discouragement, grief and life. It’s the oil that uplifts, instils courage and cheer and cleanses the heart from emotional toxins.
This newsletter is dedicated to all the people who surround us at any given moment who help us to uncover and unmask our illusions so we can heal. I am so grateful to you.
Let me tell you a little story…
Sore throat? Chesty cough? Low energy? Runny nose?
Having a long winter cold is pretty grim. The feeling of being run down and below par the whole time is depressing… and let’s be honest, I HATE being ill.
I was fed up with constantly reaching for those popular brands and having absolutely no idea what was inside of them. They also no longer matched my view of how amazing plants are at supporting the body and so I began a quest to find out the best natural remedies for my family.
