The Changing Seasons

The Banksia bush has candle like flowers which is great for attracting native wildlife. The aboriginal people of Australia used the nectar from the flowers as part of their diet.

It's starting to get cold and Winter will soon be here. It is time to celebrate the falling leaves, wood hearth fires and sleepy cuddly warm nights inside your home. It's nice to go with the seasons and snuggle up with a candle glowing in the lounge room while you read or have a bath. My favourite candle is scented in Bergamot and Banksia. I hand pour each candle and use beautiful coconut and soy wax with cotton wicks. Each candle lasts for approximately 15 to 20 hours.

My skin needs some extra moisturising oils too. I will still be swimming as much as possible but I need to keep a barrier on my skin and hair. I always use Blossom Argan Oil which is 100% pure and certified organic. It just takes a few drops to moisturise my face and hair before swimming. I also find that my Persian Rose Repair Body Cream is very helpful in keeping my skin moisturised all day and I love the beautiful scent. Pure rose otto essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the damask rose. It helps to enhance love, harmony and awareness; and reduce feelings of despair, sorrow and emotional trauma. Pure rose otto is a precious and costly essential oil.

I have just travelled to the Sunshine Coast and the change in temperature from warm to cold has made my lips sensitive and cracked. I have been using my Honey Argan Lip Balm to help repair and replenish my chapped lips and its working a treat. One of my friends has used my Honey Argan Lip Balm on her babies' sensitive nappy rash and it has worked a treat as well. Honey acts as a humectant while the super nourishing butters moisturise and create a barrier on the skin. Moisture is kept in the skin while providing a barrier to nasties. My next batch will include pure Australian honey from my travels around the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

After swimming I love to indulge in a nice relaxing Sweet Orange Blossom Bath Soak which contains Magnesium sulphate to soothe and relax tired and hardworking muscles. Kids love a bubble bath for fun and creating bubble sculptures. Citrus Blossom Bubble Bath is new and also a favourite for adults. The Avocado Oil allows for deep moisturisation of skin while the bubbles let you imagination work and float away in bliss.

I hope that you will enjoy these warm Sunshine Coast snaps.
