Monday Motivation – Need Some Time Out?

I remember when I was a girl and my mum would have an afternoon nap and ask us not to bother her – of course a few times I would have tried, and I was surprised by her response.  Of course now I am in the same situation, I completely get it.resthere

Being a busy mum of 3 girls, and a wife … business owner, training in the day – sometimes, some peace and quite is all you long for.  When the girls were smaller, I always found training was my time out, it is a little different now as I am usually training with other people – so even though it is my own time, I am usually engaging with others.  I explain to the girls now they are older, if i need a little time out – and it usually works ok.  I have started doing Romwod each night, and this is my little time out each day …  I am learning to release and breathe and it is part of my daynow which I look forward to.

Thought I would share this great recipe for a Facial Scrub which came from Kula Mamafrankincense

Better Than Botox Facial Scrub


1 tablespoon baking soda

½ tablespoon raw Manuka honey (Manuka honey has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties for the skin)

1 drop of therapeutic grade young living lavender essential oil contact me here about buying this

1 drop therapeutic grade young living frankincense essential oil 

1 drop of therapeutic grade young living geranium essential oil

  1. Combine the baking soda and honey together until it looks like a paste.  Add one drop each of lavender, geranium and frankincense essential oils.
  2. Place a warm washcloth over your face and hold on skin for a minute or so to open up your pores.
  3. Gently rub face with facial scrub using small circular motions (be gentle with your skin!).  Keep massaging skin with scrub for 3-5 minutes to fully remove dead skin from face and to let the essential oils work their magic.
  4. Rinse off with warm water.
  5. Your face may be red for a bit but this will wear off.
  6. Use this scrub no more than 1-2 times a week.
  7. This scrub is alkaline to the skin, so to even out your pH it is a good idea to splash your face with rosewater afterwards.  This will naturally balance your skin.
