It's time to Transform Your Wellness

The last 28-day Challenge/Program was a big success. People transformed their wellness on many different levels.

Now it's time again!

Here are what a few of the participants had to say:

"Karin your inspiration, knowledge, support and coaching has been wonderful.
The challenge has kept me accountable everyday with self-care tips and self investments towards Wellness.
Been loving the coaching and sel reflections that has increased my awareness in my moments. Living more consciously, deeply and authentic.
The oils are the sprinkle on top. It’s been great learning more about them and how to consciously and very easily implement them into everyday life. 
Feeling focused, centred and grounded.
Thank you AMAZING woman"

"This has been a tremendous journey, considering I was resisting it from the start and I acknowledge that I was lol. I have had to look at things that I was avoiding and placing everything and everyone before myself, this didn’t help with self love or placing myself as first priority in my life, I’ve gained a refreshing look at myself.
I’ve also met some inspiring people that have encouraged and supported each other.
I’ve enjoyed the oils ,affirmations and recipes that Karin has put forward for us all.
Karin !! Love and gratitude for your thoughts, support and wisdom and for making us feel like a member of your family and for your dedication and endless work and time to this course.
Also Thank you to Jeff as everyone needs a support team behind them, which he is and has helped with info too.
I wish everyone who has participated in the challenge all the best in the future and I’m grateful for what you have shared with me, love and gratitude."

I have developed more understanding of others and this I am truly grateful for.
Thank you Karin for all the effort that you put into bringing this Transform Your Challenge into fruition.

I will miss the Sunday evening catch-ups and the humour"

The daily live posts keep me on track. Thanks again."

How To Become a Minimalistic Toxic Free Cleaner

I have not just been in the process of detoxing my body over the last few years by improving my diet but I have also been switching all my personal care products (all products I put on my body and also the make up I am using).

It's been an interesting journey of learning but most of all I feel the amazing benefits. 
It has taken a while but I have done it by a step-by-step process. Changing old habits does not only take new learnings, it also takes perseverance and time. I must say that I am so happy I have taken the time and made all this happen.

This has not just meant that I have cleaned up what I eat and what I put on my body by changing products - it has also meant that I have become a minimalist.
I have discovered that you really don't need too many different products. I have also learnt that less is often better and quality is better than quantity. I have started to really understand the power of marketing. 
During my teenage years and beyond I believed that some products in fancy packaging would make you stay looking young, have healthier skin & that they simply worked better than others. 

Now I understand that marketing is everything and it's easy to start to believe that something that is expensive and comes in a shiny bottle must be much better.
My cupboard of personal care products has now changed and it has also created more space in my cupboard. 
I believe that less is more. It has not just been a detox for my body, it's also been a detox for me emotionally and mentally.
I have simply gone back to nature.

The next step on my detox journey was to start taking a look at what I was cleaning the house with. I started looking into what chemical to avoid  and chemicals that simply were not good my body.

I discovered a range of chemicals that was used in many products - chemicals that were harmful to my body.
I discovered that air fresheners and fragranced cleaning products contained Phthalates.  Did you know that Phthalates are endocrine disruptive - in other words they "muck" with our hormones.
I discovered that anti bacterial products contained something called Triclosan. Triclosan can disrupt the immune system. That made it a big reason for me to get rid of all the anti bacterial cleaners and hand sanitisers with Triclosan in it.
I discovered that some window cleaners and multi purpose cleaners had something called 2-Butoxyethanol in it. This is bad for our lungs to inhale and not good for our kidneys and liver. 

Oh my Goodness, I could not believe what I discovered. So many toxic chemicals  in the cleaners I was using!

I discovered that Ammonia which is in a lot of the window cleaners can affect people with asthma. No wonder I was coughing every time I was using it!
I learnt that Chlorine that is in a lot of the toilet cleaners, whitener cleaners, laundry soak is not good for our skin and respiratory system. 
I discovered that many cleaners and detergents had Sodium Laureth Sulphate in it. This is highly irritating for our skin.

The list went on and on. I could not believe I was using these toxic cleaners. Not just that. Marketing campaigns had made me think that I needed one cleaner for every different surface!

It was time to detox my house! 

I started with getting a large black rubbish bag and filled it up with all the toxic cleaners.
I started using white vinegar, Castile soap, bicarbonate of soda, olive oil, lemons, water and essential oils instead.
Not just did I start feeling better, my house also smelt like stepping into nature.

Since then I also came across an amazing solution - one cleaner that actually ticked all my boxes for being toxic free! I found that I could use just one cleaner, some essential oils and products I had in my cupboard, to keep my house smelling fresh, clean and toxic free.

One of the tools that helped me learn about the toxins was an app called the Chemical Maze. A good tool to have for sure.

So my life has now improved in so many ways. I have ditched so many toxic products and I can now proudly say I can call myself a minimalistic Cleaner! 😀👍

A peace of paradise deep in the Otways

Yesterday I visited one of my favourite places in Victoria - Lake Elizabeth. 
This place is magical to me. It's hidden deep in the Otways and is simply beautiful! You walk through tall Eucalyptus Trees and huge ferns to get down to this amazing hidden lake
The lake is beautiful and in it you see dead trees that drowned when the valley was flooded more than 50 years ago. 

This place is somewhat magical to me. Walking through the huge ferns and trees makes you feel small yet protected.
Apparently there is platypus in the waters of the lake, which can be seen early in the morning or at dusk. You can also see glow worms at night and of course there are also a lot of snakes during the summer months. A sanctuary for the Australian natives too.

I feel full of gratitude and peace from visiting this amazing place and also super inspired for the day ahead - the first day of the 28-day Transform Your Wellness Challenge.

I will leave you with this Saying;

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. Just living is not just enough. One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower. Wherever you go, no matter the weather, always bring your own sunshine"

Enjoy the beauty around you & remember to count your blessings,

A very Happy Diffuser Blend

Today I felt I needed some happiness but also some calming aroma around in my office, so I decided to mix 4 drop of Orange which is such a joyful oil together with some Stress Away which is such a calming, yet joyous oil.

Wow! I love this combinations.
Give it a go and let me know how you find it.

Stay healthy - body, mind & spirit

Stay healthy - body,  mind & spirit
Now more than ever it's important to take care of our body, mind and spirit. 

We are going through a time of Transformation - times of change. 

The world is changing; like it or not, struggle with it or not....this is the time to awaken our body, mind and spirit!

The Yoga guru B.S.K Iyengar said 
"Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open".

Being healthy and feeling good and in harmony, requires so much more than physical health, but having a healthy body certainly helps that is for sure. 

Today I was in Geelong doing a few errands and as I was looking around in a few different area, a few things struck me. Firstly, how this period we are going through right now is changing the world. Business will close, people are losing their jobs, mental and emotional distress is high for many.  I was feeling blessed to be in the situation I am, yet I am up for more change and challenges with many big decision to make and changes to make and more transformation to go through. 
It's not easy to be challenged once again (yes, it's not my first time) but I feel blessed that I have health and that is not just physical health I talk about - it's that I have the ability to pull myself out of a negative mindset when it hits me. I count my blessings and I call upon that "Viking Warrior Spirit"! 

This Viking Warrior Spirit awakens through challenges, through times of change and transformation. 
I have it, but I know you have it as well!  I have so much I can share with you and I cannot wait to help more people - perhaps even you - with strategies to "Transform their Wellness". It covers so much and I will guide you one step at a time.
