Kisses Don’t Lie

Kisses are sweet and can mean many things. Kisses come from within, the best ones anyway. It might be a joyful peck or a tight, hard reluctant return, but kisses don’t lie. A passionate heart is behind a passionate kiss. A kiss that is better than wine captivates, intoxicates and remains unforgettable…

Making Red Rose Cleanser

Maybe I’m just needing the super nurture of the rose, but I’m really loving the red rose cleanser this year. Because I make this from fresh Red Rose petals from my grandmother’s garden, the vintage has a special connection for me. It seems that somehow love and spirit can be transferred into the things you…

Comfrey and Rose Mask to Supercharge Cell Renewal.

Spring has fully sprung and the garden is coming alive and pumping. That means it’s time for me to start drying out my herbs for my masks which I use on my own skin and for my clients. The small quantity of dried and powdered comfrey in the jar above seems like a pitiful amount…

Making Rose Clay Cleanser

It’s raining and cold at Katoomba this morning. It’s the last day of the school holidays, and with no clients booked in I’m making the most of the homely crafty atmosphere. If I wasn’t fasting I’d be making biscuits and drinking hot chocolate so instead I decided to use the final Autumn flush of the…

Watching the Herbs dry

While watching paint dry and watching herbs dry can be very tedious, this is how we patiently dry the Comfrey, Chocolate Mint and Calendula grown in our Spa gardens and used to make Ichykoo Exfoliating Herbs. The herbs are then mixed with the Red Rose Clay Cleanser to make a kicker anti- wrinkle mask which…

Low chi can be caused by many things, such as unresolved guilt and anger, long periods…
