Essential Oils For Headaches & Migraines

The lines on our face are not to be hidden

Dear Canaries,

Ageing and how we feel as we age, like all things in life is a deeply personal experience. I feel we are entering a time where everyone is obsessed with looking young. People injecting themselves with goodness only knows, diet fads and implants galore. Many people that are beautiful inside and out look like puffed up versions of themselves these days. Read More

Why you don’t want a business like mine..


Dear Canaries,

If you have your own business or are thinking of starting one chances are that you have either mentored someone or ask someone for help. I tread softly giving advice, on any topic, but especially this one, because I know you don’t want a business like mine. Let me explain.

For as long as I can remember I have known something, do you ever feel like that? You’re not really sure why, or when it came to be a part of your beliefs, but you know without a doubt that it makes up a core value that you live by every, single day.Read More

Self Love Meditation & Aromatherapy


Dear Canaries,

If you read my blog you will know how big I am on self-love. I believe that self-love is the key to happiness. I believe this because it is a key that eluded me for many years. I was a kid that got pushed around and bullied at school, it took years of self-love talk, mediation and belief to turn this around.

The techniques, which include meditation and aromatherapy that I used are something that I love to share, they may work for you, in any case, I think it’s nice to share my experiences and hope that someone, somewhere, someday may find themselves in a difficult place like I once was and be able to climb out of it.
