About the Founder
I am a Brisbane born, mum of 2 (1 fur baby and one toddler) who has spent the last 5 years travelling and living abroad. I have spent time living in Austria, London and Canada before returning to my hometown in 2018. Prior to that, I was thriving in my career as an Interior Designer, but working exhaustive hours in a high stress environment. At the time I thought I had it all, I was living what I later discovered to be a very masculine or “Yang” lifestyle.
As many of us do when we are overloaded with work, children, and partners often the first thing to fall off the priority list is taking time out for ourselves. My reality had become work, sleep, repeat with no room for life in between. I went on to continue this labour of love until it became too much, and my health deteriorated in a big way. The modern day fairy-tale of having it all had in fact the complete reverse effect.
Over the years I have watched countless friends struggle with anxiety, depression, adrenal fatigue and infertility. I too was struggling with my own hormonal imbalances and set out on a quest to resolve them with the hope that one day I would be able to have children after many years of absent periods. Little did I know that I was embarking on a HUGE lifestyle overhaul to eventually land at the root cause of the problem – CORTISOL!
I was totally happy riding the adrenaline wave until it slapped me in the face. I would most likely have to have IVF or assisted conception. I set out on a quest for answers, If I cannot do what I am fundamentally programmed to do as a woman then what on earth was I doing wrong?!
In our modern everyday lives our bodies are constantly bombarded with toxins from every angle, it’s an overload that we simply aren’t programmed to deal with. Committed to minimising the load on my body I tackled every element that was within my control, the biggest shock coming from the toxic and potentially harmful ingredients in the lotions I was slathering my body in on a daily basis.
Not only could these products out perform their toxic rivals but they didn’t come with any of the negative side effects. In fact my beauty routine became a ritual in itself, revealing in the calming aromas, and with gratitude that I was doing something to help my body rather than working against it.
As I dove more and more into the ‘alternative’ lifestyle the wonderful world of meditation was introduced to me. It was an instant love, I couldn’t get enough ‘zen time’ I craved it! It was as though my body was sending me a message loud and clear "YES" this is exactly what I need! Not only was every cell in my body telling me this but it was also reflected in my blood work, my cortisol had halved and my cycles had returned.
I am always searching, creating, manifesting new ways to improve my products, my health and the health of those whose path I cross. My hope is that you too will use these products as a catalyst for indulgent skin-care rituals where you carve out the time and space for the personal connection you deserve.
