The Jumping Outside Of My Comfort Zone Competition

Posted on 12 January, 2018 at 0:05 Comments comments (0)

Hi Blossoms!


A quick post to let you know about a competition I am running over on Facebook.

 

I have enrolled in a personal development training course called Spark The Change, and this week my Mentor is pushing me right outside my comfort zone!

 

The challenge is to do a Facebook live, which are not a favourite of mine, I have to be honest, as my mind just goes completely blank as soon as I go live!

 

So I accepted this challenge, and then made my own decision to push myself even further, by recording a series of 4 FB lives on my Blossom Wellbeing Cheshire page this week!

 

Rules of the competition:

I will post videos as follows;

Tuesday - Lovely Lavender

Wednesday - Perfect Peppermint

Thursday - Luscious Lemon



 

On Friday night at 7 pm, the video with the most VIEWS is the winning post, and the winner will be drawn at random from people who have posted in the comments with their own experiences or asking for a recipe.

Sharing is not a requirement of the competition. However, it is very kind if you choose to do so, to benefit others with the information in the videos.


The winner will win one of my gorgeous goodies boxes from my Vision Board Workshop this coming Sunday and also an Introductory Essential Oils Kit containing lavender, peppermint and lemon essential oils. (No cash alternative will be given).

 

I am so excited to see which video you love the best!

 

Good Luck

Healthy Truffle making with Oli the Choc!

Posted on 2 November, 2017 at 7:00 Comments comments (2)


A week last Tuesday was one of the most enjoyable essential oils classes I ever been to.


I'm always looking to add value for my clients and so wanted to mix the classes up a little instead of my regular Essential Oils Lifestyle classes.

 

Blossom Wellbeing collaborated with Oliver Dunn The Chocolatier, at his chocolate studio in High Lane, and the results were incredible!



 

Ollie had just returned from Accra, where he had been sourcing only the very best quality raw chocolate, with his Father Simon.

 

Ollie taught us all about chocolate, where it comes from, we saw and touched pods in different stages of ripeness and tasted the nibs in their rawest form (I liked the taste, others weren't so keen).

 

Ollie then brought out a pot of cocoa powder for us to smell and tried to catch me out by giving me cinnamon powder instead!

 

We learnt how to make the truffles and lollipops which we flavoured with a drop of lemon, lavender or peppermint.

 

Some of the class wanted to be more adventurous and opted to try Frankincense oil, (given to the Christ child 0 BC) which I have to say I think were, surprisingly, my favourite!




I just loved the rich, smooth contrast of the dark chocolate followed by the hint of essential oil. In fact, I wish I had some more right now!

 

Whilst we were making or delicious truffles, I explained the therapeutic benefits of each essential oil and they are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, flowers, bark, rind, and leaves of plants, extracted an distilled for their health benefits.

 

I was taught from an early age, at home by my Father who is a Dentist, how essential oils are a natural healthcare solution to address root causes without side effects as the first line of defence, with synthetic options second.

 

If you are open to learning more, I would love the opportunity to share the oils with you and those in your life that are also interested in improving their lives through natural medicine.

 

Our next raw chocolate truffle making class, with Ollie, is being held in Prestbury on 14th December 19.30-21.30.

My first two Classes

Posted on 2 July, 2017 at 8:05 Comments comments (0)

A few weeks ago I held my first Essential Oils Lifestyle Class for my family and friends.


I wanted to share the incredible oils I had recently found. I am always looking for ways to add value to my treatments and customers and these oils fit in perfectly with my Practice.


I had also been looking for alternative treatments to medicate myself and my family, before reaching for Paracetamol, Calpol, etc. as a first instance. Using essential oils can be safe, natural option to protect and maintain your family's health

 

My dear friend Rebecca directed me to these therapeutic grade essential oils. She was enthused by these oils as they can be administered aromatically, topically AND internally.

 

These oils are pure and natural, with aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They are free from fillers or artificial ingredients; there is no dilution of active qualities and free of contaminants, pesticides, or chemical residues. Everything you would naturally expect from an essential oil.




I hosted the classes with the very lovely Simone Quinn-Dixon from Cheshire Beauty, who has been a trained aromatherapist for the past 25 years. Simone has been using these special oils for any years and is an advocate for the brand.




The first class was extremely well received, as was the second. It was a fun, relaxed evening, with people not wanting to go home!

 

I faced my fears before the first class and posted my first ever Facebook live - Cringe! 

I am astounded and thrilled 1.8k people watched it! If you would like to look at it, you can check it out over on my Facebook page here.


Class Structure:

I began with a brief introduction to myself and my business, how I use essential oils within my treatments, followed by background on the essential oils company and then detailed information about the ten most popular oils while sharing them with the class.



 


Drinks & Nibbles:

We enjoyed adding zesty, grapefruit oil to their glass of prosseco, for a slightly "healthier" variation!

 

For the first two classes, we served sushi and dim sum.




This week's class is taking on a Spanish theme! For a taste of summer sunshine, we will be serving Sangria, Spanish tapas and Creme Catalan and show you how to use the oils in cooking, which is really exciting.


 

Book this Class:

This class is for you if you are ready to explore new ways to lead your lifestyle, boost your health and create a natural, non-toxic environment at home and your workplace.

 

There a few space left for this class. To book your place, click here.

 

I hope to see you in Class!

 

Silly Sunburn Scorcher!

Posted on 2 July, 2017 at 6:30 Comments comments (0)

I have been VERY naughty!

I am really embarrassed to admit this has happened to me :(


Yesterday, at my daughter's sports day, I was assigned the role of manning the inflatable assault course. (It was such good fun!)


At the beginning of my short, stint the sky was cloudy above. Soon the clouds parted, and the sun began to shine. The sun was generating quite a bit of heat, and so I took my jumper off.


I supervised the children only for half an hour, before going back inside.


Pale Skinned:

 

I previously trained as a dermatology nurse, specialising in the removal of skin cancer and know well the dangers of sun damage.

 

I am very pale skinned, with red hair and freckles and always look after my skin.

 

Every morning as part of my skincare regime, I apply an SPF 50 to my face and neck (even in winter) to protect from ultraviolet rays, to prevent ageing and wrinkles.

 

You can read more about sun safety here.


Bad Penny!

 

In the short space of time, I got a mild sunburn! I totally underestimated the strength of the sun yesterday :(



 

As you can see the skin is red, it's really hot, feeling tight and sore to the touch!

 

There's not a lot I can do about it now, except working on healing and soothing the burn.

 

Before I reach for the hard stuff, I personally prefer to try alternative methods of healing.


Essential Oils Natural Remedies:

 

I reached for my essential oils family physician box and chose lavender, peppermint and frankincense oils.

 

I mixed two drops of each oil with fractionated coconut oil to minimise any skin sensitivity and gently, applied it directly onto my sunburn (topically) every four to six hours.

 

Lavender oil soothes any skin irritation and helps to heal burns.

 

Peppermint oil contributes to cool the burn and relieve pain.


Frankincense oil supports healthy cellular function and helps reduce skin imperfections and scarring.

 

Other oils I could use would be Melaleuca and Helichrysum.

 

You can find some more home remedies for burns https://draxe.com/home-remedies-burn-relief/" target="_blank">here.

Please don't be silly like I was yesterday and stay safe in the sun x

Aromatherapy Awareness Week

Posted on 13 June, 2017 at 7:30 Comments comments (0)

Now I think you may have realised over the past few weeks, just how much I love aromatherapy!


This week is aromatherapy awareness week, so I thought I would tell you a little about why I am so interested in it.





I was first introduced to it when I was about ten years old, by my Father who is a Dentist.


He has always had a keen interest in homoeopathy and aromatherapy.


My brother and I were taught to perform steam inhalations with Eucalyptus or Frankincense oils when had colds or sinusitis. To use Lavender & Chamomile oils to relax before sleep or exams. Lemon oil for a boost etc. We have always been taught to use to alleviate various symptoms..


Recently, I realised every time my children feel a little "off" they are asking for paracetamol. While it has its place surely this cannot be healthy? It made me think about all the chemical products in my house and air fresheners with synthetic sprays...


What is the alternative?

We will turn back to nature and explore what pure, organic, therapeutic, food grade essential oils, plants, herbs and flowers has to offer in our everyday lifestyle.


 I for one am ready to explore new ways to lead my lifestyle, boost my health and create a natural, non-toxic environment at home and the workplace.


Lots of lovely people have been messaging me asking me to create another essential oils class, which I am really happy to do.


What type of class would you like?

- Essential Oils Lifestyle Class

- Emotional Wellbeing Class

- Healthy Child Lifestyle Class

- Spa Class or

- Natural Cleaning Class?

- Something else?


Let me know, and I'll get a date set up :)
