Posted by Jo Harris on

Love

Joy

Warmth

Compassion

Kindness

Support

Who doesn't want more of these in their life?

February is the month of love, love for another, a partner, a child, a family member, an animal, but most of all oneself. If we can't love ourselves fully, we have little hope in being able to healthily love another. So it starts with ourselves. Just as in EFT (tapping) commonly, the change starts by saying "I deeply and completely love and accept myself".

New year ritual- clear out the old and bring in the new and best you

Posted by Jo Harris on

I think we are all agreed in that 2020 was a year that we don't want repeated. We all had to learn and relearn many skills. We had to learn to be okay with uncertainty, had to let go of our plans and in many cases we had to forgo seeing our loved ones. Many people lost their jobs, or were locked out of doing them for many months. We were locked out of other countries and states and many of us into our our five kilometre radius. Many people were locked into unsafe spaces with unsafe people. 2020 was...

16 ways you can save water

Posted by Jo Harris on

Even though 71% of the earth is covered by water, in many parts of our world, water is an issue. Did you know that 97.2% of earth’s water is in seas and oceans, meaning that it is too salty to be usable and that a further 2.15% is in ice caps? That means less than 1% of the world’s water is usable by humans and many other living creatures (National Geographic).

A great way to get into the spring season is to do a detox. Winter comfort foods tend to be heavier and more work for the liver to digest.

Our bodies and organs are pretty incredible at being able to deal with the unhealthy stuff we put in our bodies, but a little support for our bodies goes a long way. A detox can support the liver, kidneys, adrenals and lymphatic system so that our body can function in an optimally healthy way.

How can essential oils help you to stay healthy in winter?

Posted by Jo Harris on

Here in Australia we are now in the midst of winter, especially in the south where Soularoma is located. Not only do we have the normal winter illnesses, colds and flus, winter aches & pains but this year we have COVID-19 as well. So it is extra important that we look after our health this year.

Essential oils are a great natural way to maintain your wellness in the winter months. There is a lot of research that has shown us how effective they are in doing this. There is a huge a range of oils to help us keep the respiratory system healthy (and many of them are Australian native oils which is great at keeping it all local!), but if you think about nature, the leaves on a tree are like its respiratory system, thus suggesting that essential oils distilled from leaves could be the most helpful for maintaining the health of our respiratory system. To name just a few which illustrate this analogy, there is eucalyptus, pine, peppermint gum, rosalina, kunzea, niaouli, black spruce, bay laurel, tea tree and silver fir, amongst others. All of these oils are very helpful for our respiratory system.
