Saying Yes to the Pleasures of Life

Today I spent the afternoon at home chatting with my nephew, and to join the celebration, we invited the chocolate oat biscuits and tea pot to join us. It was after pouring two hot cups of black tea that I decided, naturally, to dip a biscuit into my mug. What I experienced, as the rain…

A Real Taste of Kirtan in the Park

It wasn’t that long ago that I took a walk around one of the most beautiful parks in the world – Parc de la Ciutadella, Barcelona. After a stroll past the masterful tight rope walkers, kora players, lovers snoozing side by side and children posing in their latest yoga postures, I was drawn in by…

Healing Inner Pain – a helping hand from Rishikesh, India

It was just the other day that I toppled over crying. Not with a baby crocodile tear but a river flowing o’er me.  After a few minutes of enjoying this light release, the river eventually lost its charm and transformed itself into a swamp of heavy pains and inflamed skin. “Was it normal to cry…

Our New Friends Inspired Us No End

It was quite profound, the encounter I’d had with her last week. She passed me by at the woods with two bountiful schnauzer dogs, when one of them pounced up to lick me. Quick to apologize, she also delivered it with a whopping smile and a dazzling aura, as if she’d been touched by a…

Why we will remain positive in the autumnal puddles

This month, I thought a lot about our community and wondered why it was that they were all so dearly cool.  So, rather than do the guesswork, I set out to ask them some questions.  I didn’t interrogate them, nor did I put words into their mouths. Instead I simply allowed them to talk. What…

Gratuity Where Gratuities Due

Each month and I suppose we could say each day, someone, somewhere provides us with an opportunity to celebrate. Now isn’t that a noble thing to do? So, for the sake of keeping the vibes of our pharmacy in good shape, we decided to join in the celebration of ‘World Gratitude Day’ this month by…

What the Greeks taught us about Wellness

This summer, I left our beloved Barcelona to delve into the culture of another place. I decided to scurry over to our neighbouring country, Greece. Mostly because I was particularly interested in how they lived, what they may have inherited from the classic antiquity and what implications that had on their wellbeing. In other words,…

New on the block – Moisturiser Pollution Protect

Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present, straight from the production house’s door, our latest gem, Moisturiser Pollution Protect. Now, this moisturiser is not just any moisturiser. It’s a moisturiser that took us by storm. It took us all around the city of Barcelona and showed us what for. While we danced along the under-path and…

Embody the Healing Light at Midnight

I sat last night on a roof terrace with a very dear friend Benjamin Swatez. This friend of mine is very special because his heart is explosive and his mind is amazing. As we usually do, we deep dived into a sentimental chat and happened to land on the full moon. Together we realised that…

Feel at ease in your legs and feet with Gingko Biloba Gel

Fly high above the sky and you will understand why, we have been blessed with a fruitful apple pie 🙂 I say fruitful because our own garden is vast and wide and full of pride. It contains the fruits of our labour that we’ve cultivated together. It comes from our mother earth who looks on…

Let’s Join Together in a Verse of Happiness

Whilst I was at the beach last month I decided I’d set myself a daily task of writing a verse. What this task did was guide me to the people, places and pages that opened my heart to my blessings. Now what I’m going to do is share those blessings with you to urge you on…

To travel is to be gifted

Our beloved Hans Christian Andersen delivered many fairytales that have left a mark on our hearts and minds. But it was his love of travel that inspired my journal as I took a trip to the UK. While I perched in the leather aisle seat of my flight to the Great British Isles and enjoyed…
