Inspirational Woman: Kate Johnson

At first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking that the beautiful Australian model, former beauty queen, graphic designer and animal advocate has led a charmed life. Indeed, she has in many ways, thought her life has also been peppered with tragedy and loss, which according to Kate has made her stronger, family-focused and determined to live a healthy, fulfilled lifestyle. You’ve had a tough year, how have you remained positive? I have to admit he last year has also been a huge one for many reasons, including the health of both my parents. My mother is a quadriplegic following a car accident when I was nine, and is now dealing with intricacies of kidney failure. My father, now retired, had surgery for bowel cancer this time last year and after given the all clear has since been diagnosed with prostate cancer. So it’s safe to say my life in the fast lane modeling and going to events every other day has changed dramatically! Sometimes life gives you a little wake up call to the important things in life, and for me, that means my family. You open two gifts every morning; they are your eyes. It’s taken …

Maximize your energy

Have you ever had a phase in your life where you feel constantly drained? It’s so frustrating not have the energy to do what you need to! There are various reasons for this, but one could be your cortisol levels. Cortisol is our stress hormone, it releases energy into our body in quick response to feelings of risk or stress. This boost of energy is great for dealing with the immediate situation, but once it wears off you can be left feeling extremely drained. If you have a constant level of stress then it’s likely that your cortisol levels aren’t healthy and your energy is being consumed much faster than it should be. This is why it’s important to try and lower the amount of stress you’re feeling. Sometimes you think you can’t help feeling stressed and overwhelmed, but here are some tips for finding a balance: Exercise – help relieve stress and anxiety by getting outside and being active. It’ll help to build a positive attitude for the day! Make sure you are getting enough Vitamin …

Earth Day 2016 – All about trees

We love trees! They’re our business. We rely on them for the majority of our healthy and nutritious ingredients. From almond and macadamia oils to lemon, bergamot, orange, mamey, carnauba, avocado…pretty much all our products’ incredible formulae owe their existence to trees. And so do we, all of us, so the focus of this year’s annual Earth Day, held on April 22nd, is all about trees. Trees clean the air, soil and water, making the earth a livable place. Specifically: Trees help combat climate change – They absorb excess and harmful CO2 from our atmosphere. In fact, in a single year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced by driving the average car 26,000 miles. Trees help us breathe clean air – Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark. Trees help communities – Trees help communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability and provide food, energy and income. Trees …
