    Restoration Oils

    It seems like everywhere I turn people are revelling in telling me how terrible 2020 has been. I get it. There's been a lot. But I believe what we need now, more than ever, is people speaking hope into our lives. Positive words and encouragements, and that's why I've teamed up with some...

    Is there anything better than fresh vegetables from your garden? My daughter and I have been picking sugar snap peas, radishes and strawberries and cucumbers today. Doesn't sound like a meal? Oh, but throw some dressing on and it becomes one. The beautiful thing about salad dressings is that...

    This week I decided that I needed my butt kicked a little bit with regards to routine. Lockdown had led to 'jet lag' and something needed to shift before I became nocturnal. So I decided to do Miracle Mornings as suggested by Hal Elrod, and several of my friends/business mentors. I decided to...

    I haven't used an alarm clock in years. I haven't needed one. Living in a boarding house means that I'm usually gently awakened by the sound of teens getting ready for school, showers running, doors closing, footsteps running all before the bell rings to let everyone know that they should be...

    We've had an abundance of redcurrants (and more than a few blackcurrants) in our orchard this week. Lila and I have enjoyed picking more and more as they ripen each day, and feeding the overripe ones to the chickens. So what do you do with an abundance of currants? Make Cheesecake, of course! ...

    This is one of my absolute favourite things I heard about at convention this year. I have long been a fan of restoring creation in any way we can - it's where the name "Restoration Oils" came from, and I was partly inspired by some Geoff Lawton videos I watched about 'greening the desert' back in...

    Adaptiv is an incredible new product line that launched in the US last year and we're excited that it's going to be available in Europe! Whilst the GABA supplement has not been approved for use in Europe (no GABA supplements are1) the Adaptiv essential oil blend does have some pretty amazing...

    I'm really excited to get my hands on this oil, I LOVE the smell of celery (I know, it's a bit marmite - you either love it or hate it) but apparently the aroma of the seed is amazing. It's earthy, sweet and a little spicy! Hippocrates praised it's therapeutic and medicinal benefits in his...

    I'm super excited to bring you education on the new products we are seeing released at convention this week. The first is citronella essential oil - which is one I think most people are at least a little bit familiar with. Almost everyone knows about the fresh, crisp fragrance of citronella...

    It's often said that dōTERRA is a personal development program disguised as an essential oil business - and that has certainly been true for me. I've learned more about myself and others than I ever knew I didn't know in the last 2 years! Lockdown has also been an interesting petri dish in...

    This is a story about gardening, but it's not really about gardening at all. Back at the beginning of March, we ordered some new hedging plants, the delivery company said they'd be with us in seven days. I was so excited about them, and as the weather got warmer and warmer and I spent more time...

    With unprecedented numbers of people suddenly finding themselves working from home, social media is letting me know that the nation has found it's self more than a little confused. Many people can't seem to keep track of what day it is. Distractions are the enemy, with housework, phone calls,...

    This blog post is WELL overdue. I intended to write it before now, in time for easter, but honestly with all the lazy days at home in the beautiful sun, and looking after my body in the wake of a nasty respiratory virus, I lost track of the date until last night! Anyway, if you're looking for a...

    We're in a season of grief right now, globally. There are people grieving for those who've died, but there's also grief for loss of jobs and security, loss of social life and freedom of movement (my poor extrovert husband is trapped at home with three introverts), loss of structure, loss of...

    by Christine Davage Who has a bunch of ‘to-do’ list items they’re working through at home? Keeping busy is good, but don’t forget to take some time to take care of you too! As we adjust to this new reality, lots of us have kids and partners at home, as well as trying to do our own work from...

    Like it or not, education as we know it has changed for both the home education community and the schooled children alike. Before people challenge me on the title of this post, it is deliberately homeschooling and not home education because it is very much directed at those who want a formal...

    Panic buying has literally been turning the world upside down hasn't it? I stood behind a couple who argued for 30 minutes with the cashier today, literally screaming at her because she would only let them buy two of each frozen ready meal. I was so glad I hadn't bought my children to the shop!  ...
