    Did you make amazing plans for self-care at the beginning of the year? Me too. How are yours going? Yeah. You're not alone. Self-care can be really hard to stay consistently engaged with. But the good news is that you don't have to do it alone. Building communities of care creates a culture...

    Meal planning is something I have found so helpful in our home, and I whilst I'm not always consistent with it, the start of a new term is always a great 'reset' button for putting a plan in place. When we do create a meal plan, I like to enlist the help of the family in finding meals and...

    As someone who's neurodiverse, attention is something that doesn't always come easy. I'm either super-focussed or not concentrating at all and it can be really hard to find a healthy middle ground. When I'm struggling to focus, there are a few things I need to check on:Have I drunk enough water...

    Have you ever felt completely exhausted, but no matter how much you sleep, you don't seem to be able to recover your spent energy? I have. For years I suffered with chronic fatigue syndrome, and I kept thinking that if I could just get enough sleep I'd be okay. Sometimes I slept up to 18 hours...

    I hate ironing. It's seriously the worst chore. When I was a college, we had teaching days, but also salon days where we had to wear white tunics and they had to be pristine. You could literally fail an assessment because a tutor thought you didn't look smart enough. Thing is, no matter how...

    It is HOT right now. And I love that in general and throughout the day time, but night is a different story. I live in a really old house, and whilst the downstairs is beautifully insulated and stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer with virtually no effort from the heating system,...

    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...

    Hummus is so easy and delicious to make at home. Once you've tried this recipe I think you'll wonder why you ever bought it in a shop! With lots of lovely fresh vegetables ripening in our garden, a fresh lunch of crunchy forage with some delicious hummus is always a hit in our house. You will...

    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...
