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.

I am a First-Time Grandmother, very exciting!!

…. but I am also concerned!

Nonprofit group’s tests find formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane in children’s shampoos, bubble baths and baby lotions.

Of 48 products tested, 67% had 1,4-dioxane. Of 28 products tested, 82% had formaldehyde. (source)


For example:
1,4-dioxane, is a “likely carcinogen,” and is present in Johnson & Johnson’s:

  • Baby Shampoo
  • Oatmeal Baby Wash
  • Moisture Care Baby Wash, and
  • Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash

According to the CDC, 1,4 dioxane is “probably carcinogenic to humans,” and is toxic to your brain, central nervous system, kidneys and liver. (source)

My question is: How many toxic ingredients do you want to subject your baby to?

As consumers we are brainwashed by slick commercials in the advertising industry how wonderful these products are. Of course they are all “natural” and wholesome”; and they promise you that you are a good and responsible parent if you use their products.

As I said, I am a new grandma, and I have become aware of the well meaning pitfalls in trying to get products supposedly to the youngsters good.

Whilst I am eager not to interfere with the ways his mum and dad will want to bring up the little treasure, I am nonetheless happy to provide some tips for them to integrate into their parenting, if they so wish.

My desire is for everyone to be happy for at least most of the time.

I remember when I was a first-time mum, no matter how much I had read and heard and learnt there were still moments when I was at my wit’s end not knowing why the little one was crying or not feeling comfy.

An uncomfortable baby is an unhappy baby…

…and if baby’s unhappy, the entire household is unhappy.

But for most of the time he was a happy and contented baby, for which I am grateful!

I have always been keen to understand the natural way of life, so if vitamins and herbs could do it, I would rather go for preventative and integrated healing than chemicals. Unfortunately, just about all the popular baby products are full of chemical stuff and toxins that are really not good for the baby. So, thankfully I have discovered true therapeutic natural essential oils which give huge benefits!

So, here I have a little recommendation for a wonderfully calming essential oil blend that will benefit little one and mummy: “Gentle Baby” … and it is genuinely 100% therapeutic, organic and pure, no chemicals added whatsoever .. just as nature intended it!

… and will help to soothe tired and cranky children, bliss!

Hey Ladies, do you want to do something special for your man? …. warning, it’ll make him swoon and groan … and then some …

OK, we all know that there is a time and place when we want to have passionate sex with our guys, almost virtually ripping their clothes off … you know what I mean….

But then there are other times when raw passionate sex is not on the cards, he’s been on his feet all day, tired and exhausted and he just wants to chill out and relax.

At that point there is nothing more wonderful for him when you honour him with a pampering massage, starting at his feet. Even if you do not know where the Reflexology, or the VitaFlex points are, by giving him a massage, unhurried and fully conscious with presence, it will make a huge difference to him feeling very special.

OK, so, get yourself into a comfy position – I assume he is already….
