Back to Grassroots for Overall Being

Over the years I have had to take time off one stage or another for my darling family and the new additions along the way. In this time I have leaned onto my creative side to give me options to feed my spare time.

Along the way I have met soooo many gorgeous and amazing business people in the handmade industry that I know for a long time they will remain such.

I have though hit a page in my chapter of life lets say that I am turning back to my grassroots....Massage & Healing. Something along with natural products is something very important and is so me and what I believe in. I know this inside and out and have done so much intensive training that it seems crazy to not turn back to this.

So I have restructured my business and website to this change in the tide.

Overall Being will now only be offering Massage treatments, Healing, Boutique parties at home but also a selection of other alternative therapies for people who do not live within driving distance to me. Now I know alot of people loved the fact Overall Being offered a range of affordable yet unique gifts. It was a hard decision for me to do this to my business, cause along the way I have met alot of gorgeous clients. So I have chosen to leave a select few of these which will  be available. Still keeping in my theme of personalised and custom though. I have used the main sellers from the past 12mths.

Why have I chosen to remove handmade.....I have as you know 4 children and a husband. Over the past 12 months time spent sewing, filling orders, stressing and "breaking even" is not enough for life. Life is about taking on moments and holding onto them as far as I am concerned. Making the most of every moment you can. Once that moment passes you can never get it back. I get alot of joy out of helping others and seeing a change for the better in them after I have treated them...I think this is why I keep falling back too my massage and healing but also all my aromatherapy products. Because I know its important.

So which gifts will remain? Zoobies, Aromatherapy, Digital Scrapbooking/Album creating, & some Jewellery. These all can be made into gorgeous hampers for a memorable gift for someone too. Adding maybe a voucher for a massage.

These days we all can get caught up in life and seem to loose the momentum very quickly. In this loosing touch with loved ones and this is my way of trying to allow people to get back in touch with friends / family.

Overall Being Boutique Parties will be the perfect scene for this. Gathering all your friends together in the comfort of your home......Laughter, Sharing moments, Massage......what more could you want? I do have other options available and something up my sleeve which I cannot disclose at the moment....but cannot wait too :) I use to do alot of Boutique parties before I slowed down for the birth of my 3rd and 4th son....and they were always such an amazing time spent together. I have now though met a few people that I can also make available on the party day to add that extra wow factor for your guests.

So I hope this brings as much excitement to you as it does for me. If you are in Melbourne though why not think about booking your own Boutique Party? Gather some friends and let me bring some fun and joy into your life.


Now I have babbled on and hope I have explained what the change is and why...I have also changed and updated my website so would love to know what you think :)

Hope you are enjoying your Thursday. I have had a very busy one !

Til next time..... Keep Smiling & Always know how amazing you are!!!

Spice up your world

"We sat side by side in the morning light and looked out at the future together."


Every so often I think we all need that little bit extra spice in our world. Well today being such a rainy day but first day of spring I thought I would bring you something wicked but something spicy to give some food for thought within your home bedroom life :))

Now you would already know I run Boutique Home Massage parties , right? Which are such a great idea of mine since back in 2003 whereby the host receives a FREE massage, gift and chance of having a memorable chill time with her loved ones and friends in the comfort of her own home. Well a few weeks ago a dear friend of mine started a party at home business called Wicked Al.....now the name should make your light bulbs go "ooooh I think I know what Lisa is on about here" :P

http://www.facebook.com/Wicked.All


Allie comes to your home, like how I do with my own Massage Parties. So privacy is high on her agenda. Professionalism is taken seriously and most of all fun is what she delivers. Wicked Al Parties are whereby you are in the secure place of your home having a fun wicked time whilst having the chance of bringing spice into your bedroom arena with adult toys and accessories.

I know this isn't for most and to be honest when Allie first told me about it my little voice put on the ole stuffy nose and went ewwwww,or that's disgusting, or thats rife, or how embarrasing, or why is she doing this, or boganish. But after a moment having a chat with someone else I realised its a business that has professionalism in it with how Allie runs it, allows people who don't / can't get to the brick & mortar stores like this business but is something that is definately within society....everyone does it, right? whether they like to admit it or not, we all do! How do children get conceived? So why not add a depth to it that creates that little bit extra attention to both?!

Now with Allie's Wicked Al parties you can just book her party to come to you OR you can ask for me to come along to give everyone a relaxing massage before hand or during. That way everyone is relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to party with Allie! Perfect Package I recon for any Hens night, Girls get together's or Just Because.

So this blog post today is not only about the brief introduction to the above mentioned but I aim in giving you some spicy tips using aromatherapy.


In no way though are we in business together, just to clarify that point. But it's to give enough information so next time you want something of a difference for a memorable fun night you will know in advance where to go :)

Now onto the fun part.......where I give you some helpful natural loving tips to add spice to your life :)


All of us have our own natural body scent and we can be attracted to another person by the way that he or she smells, whether thats a scent they are wearing or their own natural scent. Aromas can have erotic connotations. Sexual arousal causes the body to release all sorts of exotic odours - especially from the the skin, breath and sexual organs. It is possible to enhance these odours by using essential oils to make ourselves more sexually attractive.

The aroma of a 'sensual blend' must of course suit both your tastes. Aroma preference is important when deciding which essential oils to blend together, as we are instinctively drawn to those essential oils which we need.

Here are some ways of using the wonderful world of aromatherapy to enhance your love life and to achieve sexual fulfilment.

Lingerie Scenting

* Bergamot
* Geranium
* Neroli
* Ylang Ylang

It is advisable not to use absolutes or the thick heavy oils to perfume your lingerie as they may stain the fabric. But when you are washing your clothes why not add the above oils to your machine :)

You can also perfume your lingerie in your chest of drawers and in your wardrobe. Sprinkle about six drops of essential oils of rose, myrtle, jasmine, neroli, bergamot, geranium, ylang ylang, patchouli, frankincense or sandalwood or whatever your preference is on to cotton-wool balls and place them in greaseproof bags. Prick holes in the bags to allow the wonderful fragrances to permeate into your clothing. Place these bags into your drawers or hang them up inside your wardrobe.

Scented bedlinen

* Put four drops of essential oil into a small amount of water and add to the softener section of your washing machine for the final rinse.
* Fill a small spray bottle with spring water, water solubilizer & add ten drops of the essential oils of your own choice and then spray the bottom sheet lightly.
* Put a few drops of your chosen essential oils on to cotton-wool balls or on to pieces of absorbent, natural material and place them between the sheets in your airing cupboard, or inside your pillow case.

Scenting your bedroom

A burner or humidifier fragrancer is the perfect way to create a romantic and sensual environment. Put a few teaspoons of water into the loose bowl on top of your burner and sprinkle six drops into it. Light the night light to allow the oils to diffuse into the air.

Suggested recipes for your burner:

2 drops rose
2 drops geranium
2 drops sandalwood
-------------------------
2 drops Jasmine
2 drops patchouli
2 drops ylang ylang
-------------------------
2 drops bergamot
2 drops ginger
2 drops vetivert
-------------------------
2 drops black pepper
2 drops ylang ylang
2 drops lemon/mandarin

Overall Being sells Aromatherapy Candles

Candles are also perfect for scenting your bedroom and creating the "mood" for the scene. Light your candle and wait until the wax has slightly melted and then carefully put one to two drops of essential oil into the melted wax, taking care to avoid the wick.

The following suggestions may be useful:

· To a pink candle add essential oil of rose to encourage new love, romance and gentleness;
· To a red candle add ylang ylang to induce passion and sexuality;
· To a violet candle add frankincense to add an air of mystery.

Overall Being offers Massage Relaxation Parties for girls get togethers

Massage

Massage is an excellent way of arousing your partner and it is not necessary to have had a training in massage to achieve the desired effect. it reconnects you spiritually, energetically. Just follow your instincts. Pay particular attention to the abdominal area, especially the area from the navel to the pubis and the low back and buttocks. There are some effective points for boosting sexual energy and heightening sexual response. Always use Light long even strokes. Use circular motions and always keep atleast one hand on the skin to keep "contact".


To set the scene, scent your room with one of the recipes already suggested and light a few candles around the room, spray a room spray. With your already scented bedlinen and lingerie...your area will be oozing with such an intense scene that it will surely add a moment forever for both of you.

The following essential oils are ideal for increasing sexual desire: benzoin, bergamot, black pepper, cinnamon, clary sage, frankincense, ginger, jasmine, melissa, myrtle, neroli, palmarosa, patchouli, petitgrain, rose, sandalwood, vetivert and ylang ylang.

You could also look at trying Tantric.

But above all. Relax, Enjoy the moment of togetherness & Have a little fun....Cause life is about having Fun, Moments & Love.


"Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye."

Blessings for a gorgeous first day of Spring!
