Aromatherapy Oil Burner Blend

Welcome aromatherapy lovers!  What essential oils have you been inhaling this week?  I’ve been reaching for the citrus oils…lemon, orange, bergamot, mandarin, grapefruit, lime…you name it and my nose has enjoyed it!

So I thought I’d share one of the uplifting blends I’ve used a couple of times this week…cleansing, clearing, inspiring, revitalitsing and balancing…oh, just what I needed!

Grapefruit – is uplifting, restorative and reviving. Perfect in times of exhaustion.  It reduces tiredness, frustration and irritability and brings about balance, positive energy and vitality, enhancing creativity and inspiration. It is also great in times of stress, depression, nervous and mental exhaustion.  It reduces frustration and irritability, helping to give clarity of thought and the energy to face challenges.  It is very cleansing on a physical and mental level.  It also has cleansing, detoxifying and diuretic properties.

Lime – bright, lively and lovely.  It is uplifting and refreshing especially when mind and body are fatigued. It enhances positive energy and vitality.  It is great for overcoming self-doubt, fear and anxiety and helps create the right energy for inspiration, clarity and decisiveness.  It revitalises the spirit and is excellent in times of nervous fatigue and stress bringing balance to the mind, body and soul.  It is also detoxifying, cleansing and revitalising.  And It enhances fun, laughter and appetite for life!

Mandarin – a happy, smiling joyful oil it can help you connect with your inner child to create a sense of playfulness and bliss.  It is balancing, enhancing gentleness and bringing joy and happiness to the heart.  It is sedating to the nervous system and uplifts the spirits, making it excellent for depression, sadness, nervous tension, anxiety, panic and stress.  It is helpful for insomnia and restlessness.    It gives emotional strength and support, peacefulness and serenity.  It enhances inspiration and motivation.

Here’s some happy highlights

A day in Cairns…lots of little errands for work, a nice lunch and new car research 🙂 

Massages, manis, pedis and hot stone massages!  Getting busier on the treatment side of things as well as developing business plans, long and short term…ideas popping into that busy little mind of mine everyday.  I’m so looking forward to the future here…melding everything together to form my unique organic online business with some face to face goodness thrown in too.  You’ll be hearing more about this as things progress – yay!!!

A super quick catch-up with a friend…sometimes it’s nice just to see one one of your fave people if only for a passing drop-in!

A lovely night cooking dinner for friends at our place…great food (even if I do say so myself!) and the best company!  Perfect start to the weekend!

Lots of green goodness from the kitchen…

Sparkly candles and crystals and blurry abstract images…

Lunch yesterday at The Junction Cafe in Mossman…so nice to relax with Andrew.  Not to mention great pasta!

Getting ready for B-School…yay!  And new connections with some a-mazing women!

Organising a long weekend in our soon to be new home, Canberra!  And realising autumn does exist in some parts of the country!!!!  Help, what clothes do I take?  And shoes?  OMG!!!!

Leaping Out Of My Comfort Zone

Dream Big

Recently I took, not just a step, but a big leap out of my comfort zone.  I thought about all the ways I could fall and hurt myself, I had all the usual excuses, some valid some not and I still did it.

What did I do? you might be wondering…I enrolled in Marie Forleo’s B-School program.  Is that such a big deal I hear you ask?  Well, yes, for me it is.   It’s a huge step towards creating the life I want.  I’m as nervous as can be, I feel unsure and scared (almost to the point of tears at times!)  But the important thing is I’ve taken that step, made that commitment to myself.

Discomfort = Change = A better version of YOU!

It feels like such a big deal for me because while I’ve always done whatever I do to the absolute best of my ability,  I’ve never really taken the steps to stand out and shine or to become the very best version of me.  I’ve lacked confidence and believed I could never be in the same league as all those other gorgeous women out there – my “real life” friends (you know who you are lovelies) and those I follow online (you may also know who you are!…see below for some examples!).

However, lately my inner voice has been nagging me to put myself out there more.  To feel the fear and do it anyway!!!  It hasn’t happened overnight though, it’s been a gradual process to get to this point where I can be brave enough to enrol in B-school and to publish this post!  In the last 10 years I’ve moved states, made new lifetime friends, opened a business, developed an organic product line, started this blog and I’m about to make another big move interstate.  All these things have helped me build my confidence, as well as having the most supportive husband I could ever wish for.

So if you’re reading this and think you can’t do it, think again.  YOU CAN DO IT!  I was once the girl who barely spoke at a social occasion, so if I can do it there is no reason why you can’t.  Don’t worry about all those successful people who are already killing it…they are there for inspiration and most of them will offer you help if you dare to ask!  Go for dreams, allow yourself to be passionate, love what you’re doing and live it to the fullest.  These words are just as much for me as they are for you!

B-School hasn’t even officially begun and I’ve already met the most inspiring women of all ages who are taking that next step in creating and expanding their dream life.  They are from all backgrounds and ages…you’re never to young or too old to start!

I’m not writing this post to encourage you to join B-School although you really should check it out to see if it’s for you! (enrolments close on the 4th March).  I’m writing it to improve my courage and confidence and hopefully help give you a push towards doing the same!

If you do happen to be interested in B-School these beautiful ladies have some fantastic deals if you sign up through them.  By the way, they haven’t asked me to promote them and I don’t receive anything in return.  I just love what these girls do on a daily basis.  I decided to sign up through Path To Wellness because I get the chance to win a scholarship to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, which I am hanging out so badly to do!  Cross your finger and toes for me 🙂

Whatever you’re doing, remember to enjoy the ride!

Aromatherapy Oil Burner Blend

Good afternoon aromatherapy lovers!  Please accept my apologies for not sharing a beautiful blend with you last week.  It was a busy one and time just didn’t allow.  In fact the next few months are going to be jam packed with busy-ness so I might simplify this post a bit …I don’t want to stop doing it but I might not include quite as much detail.  I’ll see how I go.  Will definitely see you on Thursdays for a blend though!  Anyway, enough about me! and on with the show…

This weeks blend is for clarity and focus.  It will energise and balance your body and mind, allowing you to think clearly  and escape overwhelm city!  I don ‘t know about you but it’s just what I needed this week.

Basil – is strengthening and clearing to the mind, reducing mental fatigue.  It is strengthening and tonifying for the nervous system and especially useful for anxiety, fear, confusion and feelings of weakness or vulnerability.  It is uplifting and enhances concentration, making it great for decision making, enhancing purpose and clarity of thought.  It is very protective when the immune system is low, there is nervous exhaustion or a big change is occurring in your life.  It is anti-fatigue and purifying to both mind and body.

Geranium – is a fantastic balancer for the nervous system.  It relieves stress & depression, strengthening and balancing the mind.  It is fantastic if you are feeling run down.  It is also excellent for feelings of anxiety, indecisiveness and self doubt.  It is fortifying, comforting and calming, enhancing contentment, confidence and the ability to change.

Lemon – one of my all time favourites, I know I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again… lemon is sunshine in a bottle! An oil for happiness and fun!  It is refreshing and cleansing. It is uplifting and strengthening for the spirit.  It is energising for mind and body, bringing your energy into the “now”!  It is great for clearing a fuzzy mind, increasing motivation, ambition and positive decision making.  It eliminates negative thoughts, depression, anxiety, apathy and stress, replacing it with optimism, laughter, stability, motivation and joy!  A very nurturing oil for promoting self-care and love.  It is also an immune stimulant and has cleansing and detoxifying properties.

What essential oils do you use for a clarity and focus?  I’d love to hear your favourites, share in the comments section below if you so desire ♡

We can make this or any custom blend just for you.  For more information email me at or visit the maa organics facebook page by clicking here.

Dee’s Delights

Howdy everyone!  Welcome to Dee’s Delights, my weekly post of life’s little wonders.  It’s been a beautiful and busy week here, getting lots done and feeling great.  Hope it’s been the same for you.

✾   ✾   ✾  ✾   ✾

Here’s some happy highlights

I booked a little holiday – yay! 10 days off and a long weekend Canberra.  I’m very much looking forward to a little break and doing some more research into our big move plus enjoying the city, eating out,  walking and exploring, visiting Zaija and generally getting the feel of our new hometown!

Enrolling in B-School. O.M.G!!! I did it. There was part of me that didn’t think I would actually press that “enrol now” button, but I pushed aside my fears and I did it…GULP! Feeling very nervous but excited and I’ve already done a couple of things I wouldn’t have thought I could!

Watching B-School bonus videos.  Some time scheduling, organising, prioritising, note taking and confidence affirmations!

Lots of massage clients this week.  I’m so grateful to be able to do what I love!  And work with a fabulous-o therapist who just gets it!!!

I renewed my Senior First Aid Course.  A very long day in Cairns…say no more!

Birthday drinks and tapas for a very dear friend at Salsa.  What a lovely way to spend a tropical Sunday afternoon.  Caught up with lots of lovely ladies I haven’t seen for a while.  Yay for friendship, laughs, relaxation and sunshine.

A Monday at home.  A lovely sleep in, B-School review, week ahead planning, a nice long walk, spray tan and pedi.

I read Melissa Ambrosini’s e-book, 12 Steps to Wellness and loved it.  You can check it out here.  So much great advice!

and other decadent delights…walking – fresh fruit – coffee Wild Sister –  the radio – new friendships and planning my holiday wardrobe!


And some visual love from Pinterest this week…

Tranquillity Zone is a little quiet….it’s that time of the year – the wet season – when people flea the town for their yearly holidays and we don’t have many tourists.  A great time for catching up on other things and planning planning planning!!!

An aromatherapy oil burner blend for love!  Did everyone have a nice valentines day? I celebrated with a blog post about self love and some beautiful images and a day out in Cairns.

A relaxing weekend! A mani and pedi for me…Sunday afternoon bliss! and a scrumptious lunch at Hi Tide Cafe in Port Douglas on Monday.
