Treat for the Feet

I am just finishing up the writing of an Introduction to Reflexology Workshop. After having a few people ask me about one, I thought it was time to get cracking and put something together. I have written it with everyone from the complete beginner to the professional therapist in mind and it covers things like the history of Reflexology, benefits and precautions, basic anatomy & physiology + movements and an actual routine.
Great for anyone who even just wants to treat the other half (or teach the other half the moves and get the treatment themselves!)
I plan to go to Adult Education with it to see what they think, but also hope to be able to run the workshops off my own bat. The next thing is writing an advanced workshop as well that covers more therapeutic treatments and issues.
Reflexology is such a lovely treatment, I love performing this on my clients - it's just so relaxing! And so brilliant at helping a large range of ailments.
If you know of anyone who might be interested do let me know! I figure the introduction workshop will be a one day thing, maybe 6 hours (with coffee breaks of course!!). I don't have a cost as yet, but can get the info out to anyone who wants it. Yay!

Bay of Fires

A few weeks ago hubby and I were lucky enough to be offered a holiday cottage at the Bay of Fires (north east Tassie owned by a good friend. The contra deal was that we were checking out a local cafe that is up for sale for the same friend.
A glorious weekend, hampered only by the fact that I had a severe nerve pinch in my neck that made moving (or anything really) painful. But I persevered.... why wouldn't you when the place looked like this....?!

Quick entry.....more later!

Apologies for not writing any entries for some time - been crazy busy (and a pinched nerve in there somewhere too!).

Just wanted to get a quick write up about a new product I have going into Ruby Pear as of tomorrow.
I have been wanting to do these up for some time, but have never gotten to them until now - don't know why really, as they are simple and fun to create.
These are Soy Wax Melts (apologies for the lousy picture!! I hope Rachael of Ruby Pear can take some nicer ones for me!) - you use them in essential oil burners (the ones that use tea lights to heat) in place of the water and essential oils. The great thing is that they don't dry out and you can just keep using them until the fragrance fades. I've guestimated that these little ones should last for something like 10 hours per melt! Even though they are so small, they are not in direct contact with flame (like a candle) and so last longer fragrance wise.
I had fun making them up with lovely pale colours to match the different fragrances I used - Vanilla (white), Lemon Verbena (pale yellow), Vintage Rose (pale pink), Blackberry & Sage (pale green)and Amber & Lavender (pale blue).
Hope they sell well!
