At last it appears that Spring has arrived! The Equinox arrives on the 20th March and offers us equal daylight and night. Certainly as I write these Spring musings I feel energised & Spring like! Seedlings have emerged from the depths of the earth and the Spring daffodils are offering their beautiful sunny flowers. For me there is a feeling of new beginnings.
Working with nature and the seasons I definitely feel that it is time to Cleanse and Detox. From an Eastern perspective Spring represents new growth and energy. It is a time of optimism and according to the Five Elements the energy of the liver is at its peak . So, NOW is the time to detoxify, cleanse and rebalance those hormones!
My Spring Seasonal Cleanse is an amazing offer at only £300 (RRP £500) and suitable for most women including anyone who has recently suffered an assisted conception failure or struggling with menopausal symptoms.
You receive: A Nutritional consultation and personalised programme including an Asyra™ Health Screening to restore vitality and aid detoxification PLUS 5 x weekly signature treatments . Each weekly body treatment includes a liver castor oil pack, reflexology and an abdominal massage.

Nutty Crackers, Wild Garlic Pesto and a Free Meditation:
My friend David found this recipe at : https://wistaa.wordpress.com/2014/05/02/the-real-meal-revolution-adventures-nutty-crackers/. He added additional pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and chilli flakes to spice it up. His only problem was getting the mixture thin enough on the baking tray and then detaching it from the paper/foil! Anyway, have a go.
Nutty Crackers Ingredients: 200g sunflower seeds and 60g flax seeds 100g sesame seeds plus 2 tbsp psyllium husks 500ml water and 1 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 160°C. Combine ingredients and leave the mixture to stand until it is thick and pliable. Spread the mixture out as thinly as possible on a baking sheet or in a baking tray. The mix should have no holes in it so maybe line the tray with greaseproof paper. Bake for an hour to an hour and 15 or 20 minutes until they are seriously crispy, maybe slightly less for fan assisted ovens. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Once cooled, break them into any size you like and store in an airtight container. Makes about 16
Wild Garlic Pesto: Makes 300g. This will go well with black bean or lentil Really Healthy Pasta or some grilled fish. 80 g wild garlic leaves 50 g parmesan (or similar hard) cheese 50 g pine nuts 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 100 ml olive oil + more for topping up the jar Wash the wild garlic leaves and dry them carefully. Grate the cheese Grind the pine nuts in the nutri bullet/food processor. Add cheese, salt and pepper and about 1/2 of the wild garlic leaves. Blend again. Repeat with the remaining leaves. Add the olive oil and blend. Put in jar and top up with oil so that the pesto is covered and close lid. Source: http://foodfun.blog.co.uk/2007/04/07/making_wild_garlic_pesto~2050357/

Focus on Creation Essence
This beautiful aromatherapy oil has been designed to support hormonal health and the sacral chakra. The blend contains an alchemical mix of Rose to nurture; Geranium: The ultimate hormone balancer; Jasmine: Love and an aphrodisiac; Clary Sage: Regulates hormones and emotions; Frankincense: Connects with your soul; Bergamot: Uplifting and encourages trust; Cedar: Grounding, calming and harmonizing. I use it everyday. Here are some ideas:
Anoint at the beginning or each day or before yoga or meditation. This helps set intention or dedicate your practice. Before the anointing ritual decide on your intention – it can be anything but will be personal to you. Here are some suggestions – to be peaceful, remain positive, call your baby, manifest abundance, work from the heart, dedicate the day to world peace or even avoid a food or drink. There are many anointing rituals but one of the easiest is to place a drop of the Creation essence onto your index finger and place on your third eye (area slightly above the centre of your eyebrows), this represents the mind, then on your throat (body and communicating) and finally your heart centre (spirit). Repeat your intention with each anointment.
Sacral Chakra Bath: First place 2 dessertspoons of coconut butter/oil to the bath as it is running. Then add 300 grams of Epsom salts or dead sea salts. Just before getting into the bath add 15 drops of Creation Essence. Wallow for 20 minutes and when you get out your skin will be beautifully soft, you will smell divine and be very relaxed (not suitable in the first trimester of pregnancy). Creation Essence can be purchased in clinic or online Creation Essence
