Why on earth would you want to go through the bother and make your own salve, or creams, or …??


We all desire healthier and more vibrant skin with reduced lines and less wrinkles appearing (or preserve the skin we love!). And then, there are also some of us who have scars that are not so pretty.

So, what’s wrong with just popping into a store to get a product that smells nice and feels smooth, rather than go through the daunting prospect of replacing your beauty repertoire with DIY concoctions?

Well, maybe it’s time for you too to flourish as a Sage Artisan Beauty Alchemist, radiant with wholesome natural goodness,
vibrant with ageless aglow …

You see, I am on a mission to bring awareness to my sisters! Considering that on average women subject their bodies to a cocktail of around 300 different chemicals every day, and many don’t have a clue about the possible, and sometimes dangerous, side effects of such a mixture!

Here are some examples:

Parabens, a preservative used widely in the cosmetics industry, have been known to cause disruptions to the body’s natural hormone balance.

IW - Sleep time_320 Thank you for sending in your question! One of the most frequent ones was: *Sleep*

“I want to sleep better at night”,
“I am tossing and turning, only to see each hour go by”,
I’m actually not worried about stuff, I just can’t sleep”,
“I’m all tired when I wake up in the morning and frustrated, a long day ahead. I NEED SLEEP”!

There are many of you for whom sleep is elusive or otherwise troubled.

Some of you asked what to do about problems like parasomnias — such as sleep apnea, night terrors, narcolepsy, and sleep paralysis.

I am sorry, but this is not the place to answer clinical questions (though much of it does fall into my field as a psychologist).

This website is concerned about wellness and thriving “above the line”.

Having said that, there are a few tips I can give you to ensure you get a better night’s sleep.

IW - Maroccan Mint Tea_320

It was mid morning on a scorching hot day in Cairo, Egypt, and the suspicious gurgling inside of me insisted to demand my attention …

  A hurried visit to the bathroom confirmed my suspicion.

But why?

I had stayed clear of drinking water other than sealed bottles, definitely no local ice creams … so?? … possibly using tap water when brushing my teeth …

So, what now? As I wandered back into the restaurant I asked for a drink, telling the waiter that I wasn’t feeling well.

No problems, he motioned, “You need peppermint tea!”

Minutes later he came back with a piping hot pot of water stuffed with peppermint leaves.

Has it ever happened to you ….

You’re driving down a familiar road and are totally unconscious about any beautiful surroundings you happen to drive past by? I mean there is this conversation you had, and you can’t believe so-and-so said what they did, oh and what was it again you were supposed to remember? Why is this guy in front driving so slowly?? Yes, and … will need to return this phone call, considering that one must not phone and drive ….

So, I had one of those brain chitter-chatter unconscious drives, when …

IW - Go all in quote_cr_320


cricles dots_50 Sorry, can I ask you a personal question?

How are you coping financially?
Are you sorted for retirement in however many years that might be?

Nobody likes to talk about this rather personal issue. Everybody talks about how wealthy Baby Boomers are. We read about adventure holidays, and all the other good stuff. I am sure there are plenty of us in that fortunate situation!

However, there is another side, a financial shame side, that we tend to hide.

My own story illustrates this well. My life has been peppered with university student life (so, yes, I have my degrees incl. a Masters degree), having lived aboard in various countries, married, divorced, stay-at-home mum for a period of time, at one point lost house and home and was homeless and unemployed … Retirement funds? What retirement funds? There came a time I had to think differently….

Many other people have suffered from major losses financially as well. They had thought they had their future security sorted, and then recent recessions wiped out a lot of baby boomer’s meager retirement accounts. That came after the “dot com bubble” fiasco, etc. The stock market may have recovered, but have we?

Baby Boomers are facing a significant crisis for their future retirement with 65% saying they won’t retire or they are delaying it.

IW - Light at the end of the tunnel_320

A group of us girls had met in one of the empty classrooms. We were in our late teens, about to graduate to go to university. The era was the early 70’s. We sat on our desks, not at our desks. We were part of a new generation of women interested in politics, world views, and wanting our voices to be heard.

We were radical. I edited the school magazine. We were young women who were not going to follow the footsteps of our mothers and their mothers. We demanded a different society, we were part of a revolution….

Years later, we had gone to university … and many of us had given up on our inspiring ideas. What happened?

Life happened. Many of us had become survivors … then came marriages, kids, … I was still a trail blazer at heart, but bit by bit the radical light dimmed with me, too.
