  • Interpreting Product Labels, Episode 2.

    I recently did a post on what I could tell from reading the ingredients list and packaging of some products that were in my hotel bathroom. Several people got in touch to ask for more of that kind of post, so here is Episode 2. Like the first episode, this article is about what we […]

  • 168 chemicals to face the day…

    Fun fact: 168 is the number of hours in a week. It’s also the number of chemicals (on average) to which you are possibly being exposed each day via your personal care products, according to a recent article in ABCnews, citing research by the Environmental Working Group. My friend posted the link on my page, […]

  • The Collective Superpower…

    We often see pictures posted that share these sentiments: Buy local. Support local business. Local jobs. Put our taxes to work in Australia. Keep profits local and encourage those dollars to be spent in other local businesses. We add the importance of recognising that each of us as a consumer wields power and that every […]

  • Beads? What Beads?

    This clip on synthetic beads popped into our feed today. It gives a quick overview of the use of synthetic beads in skincare products, how they end up in the waterways and eventually become concentrated in our food chain.

  • Interpreting Product Labels, Episode 1

    If you’re following Y natural on Facebook, you might know that Olivia and I have been working in Queensland for the past week. There were little bottles of free products at the hotel and at a glance, several things caught my eye. They have an “EcoPure” symbol with a leaf. I haven’t seen this symbol […]

  • Just give me time.

    I recently enjoyed Y Natural’s Decadence day-spa experience – a gift from three dear friends – and given it was so close to Mother’s Day it had me pondering the gifts I’d given my Mum over the years. My Mum passed away seven years ago, six weeks after my first child was born, but I […]

  • Three hours of soul-soothing bliss.

    From the moment Gemma and Mac wagged their hello, I knew I was in for something sweet, and rare. The unconditional ooh-we-think-you’re-fabulous wag of their tails (the adoration only dogs can endow with unrestrained sincerity) was the perfect entrée to an experience that would have me floating for days. I stopped for a pat ‘n’ […]

  • A Beautiful Anzac Idea

    Rosemary is strongly associated with Anzac Day, presumably because it grows wild on the Gallipoli Peninsula, though perhaps also it is partly because rosemary has long been thought to have properties that are beneficial to memory – and Anzac Day is all about remembering and honouring the courage of the soldiers who fought in Gallipoli.

  • Rant Alert – Beautiful or Average?

    #rantalert I saw the link to Petra Starke’s article (the Advertiser) on the Dove #beautifuloraverage campaign posted on my friend’s Facebook page yesterday and it caught my eye. The ad poses the question: what would you do, if you were confronted with two doors, one labeled BEAUTIFUL and the other AVERAGE? Turns out most women […]
