Circulation is key. Energy needs to flow freely to prevent stagnation. Choose chemical free. The body's systems have to work harder to remove toxins from the body so do your body a favour and remove as many toxins as possible.
I try to eat healthily as I know my body works better for me with the right fuel. But I believe in a 80:20 rule. I love healthy, nutritious food and aim for organic where I can, but I also love coffee, cake, red wine and a weekly takeaway.
I try to include 10 fruits/vegetables every day and find it easier to hit my target by making homemade soups and starting every day with a juice, combining pressed apple juice, coconut water and pineapple with a wheatgrass shot (Britt Superfoods) and turmeric, lemon & ginger shot. I sip hot water with ginger, lemon and Manuka honey throughout the day and I munch Brazil nuts, almonds and pumpkin seeds.

Try and keep cleaning toxic free, use Method and Ecover products where you can, and don't forget the 50's housewives favourite of white vinegar, lemons and bicarbonate of soda. If you live in a hardwater area as I do, use a humble 2p coin to rub limescale off your taps. I kid you not, it will change your life!
Try and cook your food using stainless steel or glass cookware. Avoid plastics at all costs. Do not use clingfilm, use beeswax wraps or jam jars to store your leftovers. Use parchment lined foil instead of aluminium foil.
Must be toxin free. Tropic skincare (Tropic Skincare) is simply the best and most affordable product I have ever found. My absolute musts are supergreen serum, smoothing cleanser, skin feast, elixir, feel fresh deodorant, tamanu healing balm, foot pebble and the great barrier sun lotion.
Have a bath with magnesium salts, use a combination of body brushing, tapping and massaging to stimulate your circulation. Focus on your breath and listen to Audible and podcasts.
You can also use aromatherapy oils for massaging your face, neck and scalp, using your own hands or Hayo'u Gua Sha tools (contact me for more information). I use the Dottera oils myself.
