Make your own Perfume using Essential Oils

Make your own Perfume using Essential Oils


I love wearing Essential Oils as perfumes and I love blending them myself. Not just do they smell amazing, they also have a positive effect on my mood. Did you know that aromas have a powerful effect on us. Unlike all of our other senses, our sense of smell is the one sense that communicates directly with the limbic region of our brain. Often thought of as our subconscious, this is where we store our memories and their associated emotions.

As soon as that lid comes off the bottle of essential oil and your nose is registering the aroma, it’s already creating magic in your mind…stimulating, calming and uplifting you, arousing memories, and evoking a response.


The Ancient Egyptians understood the power of aromas, and they believed that the more beautiful they smelled, the more their Gods would bestow abundance and good fortune on them. They would compete with each other for their Gods’ favour, creating amazing signature scents which were all based on essential oils.

There is a bit of an art to make a beautiful scents, it comes down to blending the oils the best way, with base, middle and top notes.

I am running a workshop in Torquay on Wednesday the 27th of October. It will be so much fun!

Come an Join us.
Helping dogs with Essential Oils

Helping dogs with Essential Oils

There is nothing better than the love we receive from our dogs. I loved my Golden Retriever Millie. She is not with me anymore but if she was I would have wanted to give her the best of care, so she also could live a healthy , long life.

Did you know that essential oils to a dog smells like beautiful nature, but so much more concentrated of course. This is because they have so many more olfactory receptors than us humans have.

I often have people asking me about how to use Oils with their dogs, so me and my friend Kelly, who also loves dogs, put this video together.

Take a look and remember that we are her to help you get started.

Ancient Tibetan Reflexology – VITA FLEX

Ancient Tibetan Reflexology – VITA FLEX

I am so excited to add this powerful modality to my list of skillsets. I will be offering it at Aspire Wellbeing in Torquay, at my retreats, workshops, expos etc.
Vita Flex technique was developed by the Tibetans thousands of years before acupuncture. Its literally meaning is “vitality through the reflexes”.
Vita Flex was brought to the US in the 1920s by Stanley Burroughs.

Slight pressure that is applied to the body creates an electric charge that is therapeutic to the body. This is known as piezoelectric. The electrical energy that is produced during the technique transfers to the nerve pathways. Once the energy finds a gap in the circuit, it repairs the break in the pathway that is creating the imbalance in the body.

If there is a short in the wire along an electrical circuit that is controlling a light, the light would not function. When the short is repaired, the circuit would “reset” and the function would be restored!

The pressure comes from the fingers. A rolling motion of the finger pads, tips and nails, creates the stimulation similar to how an electric switch or circuit works. The technique is applied to the various reflex points of the body.

It is a very effective method and it has a synergistic effect when combined with therapeutic grade essential oils.

We know that essential oils also contain electromagnetic properties. Therefore, using essential oils with vita flex enhances the process that much more and drives the oils into the corresponding reflex points. That is why it is combined with the Raindrop Technique as well. (You can also book in for the amazing Raindrop Technique here at Aspire Wellbeing)

There are numerous benefits of the Vita Flex Technique. Here are just a few:

  • Bring back balance to the energy pathways in a non-invasive manner.
  • Work on supporting our healthy body systems
  • Reduce stress and tension in the body.
  • And many more!

Are there any Side Effects?

Because some of the Vita Flex maneuvers can encourage detoxification of the body, someone may experience some mild side effects. The best advice is to drink plenty of water before and after a session.

I am interested in booking a session!

My visit to Salt Lake City and the Young Living International Convention

My visit to Salt Lake City and the Young Living International Convention

On the 15th of July 2019 my trip to Salt Lake City started. This was a trip that I got paid for by Young Living as I participated in the Young Living Leadership Academy which meant that we had to complete and achieve certain things in a period of 6 months. It was an exciting journey as I had some major things happening in my business and I was forced to rebuild in one months time to meet the criteria to win the trip and the accomodation.
I had visualised and included the Young Living Farm on my vision board and now I was on the way. I was so excited to finally get to visit a farm.

The journey went well apart from more than expected turbulence on the way into Salt Lake City. Apparently this has to do with the surrounding Rocky Mountains.
After a night’s rest it was time for us to visit the farm – the Mona Farm.
The farm experience was something I will never forget and that I can’t wait to see some of my downline members experience in the time to come.
I had to of course take the “Lavender Photo” that everyone seem to do when they visit the farm. It did not end up being a jump in the Lavender Farm fields as many people seem to do, but I took the ones below.

It was absolutely amazing weather and the flowers on the farm was stunning plus of course the mountains with snow in the background.

At the farm we had a chance to look at and purchase products, look at he plants, horses, performances, have a lovely lunch, have Ningxia Slushies (see above) made of loads of Ningxia, essential oils and ice and of course lots more.

During the following days I got to experience the unbelievable Convention  Expo where you could visit all the different products stores which was unbelievable.

And of course the Convention in itself that was held overnight for a few nights. This was held at the Eccles Stadium so it could fit in between 40 – 50,000 people! Wow! Can you imagine how the atmosphere was?! I have never been surrounded by so many “oilers” before. 🙂

Below are some photos from the convention and the expo.

I got to meet my friend Lesley that I did the AromaFreedom technique course with . Leslie is from Texas and was so incredibly lovely. I can’t wait to meet her again!

As I as talking to Leslie Dr. Oli and his wife came up and “Diamond dusted” us – we received a copy of his new book for free. Lucky us!

The weather was stunning in Utah and as the days were full of presentations, I only got a few minutes to enjoy the warm sun. Lovely!

Such lovely staff at the expo. Happy and Smiling! 🙂

Here I am with Jen O’Sullivan, author and Essential Oil Educator. I bought her bundle of books at the AromaShare Expo.

Here is Dr. Perkins and I. I studied his Aroma Freedom Technique Practitioner Course and finished it last year. What a pleasure to meet him in person.

I also got to visit the Young Living head office. Unbelievable new building! It even had a water fall inside!

A shared room with this lovely lady, Wendy Brooke that travelled from New Zealand here.

The convention was amazing! So many happy people and presentations.

This was an experience that I won’t forget and that I will look forward to seeing other Joy droppers have in the future!



This week’s workshop

This week’s workshop

I used to have a Golden Retriever and she really was my best friend. I absolutely love her and we were so close. This was just before I got started to live the Young Living lifestyle, so I never had the opportunity to use oils and these wonderful products with her. But one thing that I know for sure is that it’s equally as important to look after our pets health to they can live a happier, healthier life.

My friend Kelly from Blissful Paws loves her dog also and she actually used to look after my dog Millie at times. It was not until after Kelly got involved in the oils I started talking to others who used the Young Living products when I realised that it’s beneficial for the dogs too. Kelly has now the experience herself as she uses it for herself but also her dog.

We and now getting together to run this workshop workshop together and we are inviting you to join us. For you who are too far away, we will organise a Webinar for so comment below with expression of interest.

We look forward to hearing from you and perhaps seeing you on Wednesday the 26th of Torquay.
