Due to passing of our beloved founder, Sarah, we have had to pause shipping for the time being and we can not take any new orders. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

July is such an interesting month as we power through spring, the weather gets warmer, and all our winter hopes and dreams are pushed into the short months of the summer. It can be a wonderful and challenging time, mainly because we create so many expectations of what we want to create before the short winter days descend on us once again!
Holidays can be a particular trigger as we dream the perfect escape with family or on our own. This is a time to really practice staying in our centre and remaining as grounded as we can. As we live on this planet with so many others rotating around us, we are going to be impacted with other people’s choices and behaviours which we simply can’t avoid. Holidays bring forth sunny days on beaches, or maybe sports and walking are your thing? Whatever you do, the inevitable bug bites, stings, sunstroke, arguments and insomnia can kick in for you or others and it can feel as if the holiday dream is disintegrating, a bit like trying to hold water in your hands. But the one and only thing you can do, is control your reaction to it all. Everyone else is out of your control but YOU are in control of You. Every day wake up and say, ‘today is going to be a fabulous day, and no matter what mood anyone else is having, I am going to stay centred and happy.’
Relationship flaws can be highlighted at this time, maybe our partner or friend isn’t living up to our expectation and being the perfect mate? Or the holiday isn’t going as planned? If you start to cling to how you think life should be and are not open to a different reality unfolding, you may never have the breakthrough needed to push things into a better and more profound place.
My holiday emergency kit includes things to help generally with these emotions. I always take a Strength & Grounding with Ruby Crystal spray or oil with me to help keep me grounded. Maybe someone needs courage for a flight or fear of the unknown but it can also be great for just staying in your centre if everyone else is collapsing around you! Lavender is my next go to item. I always carry a blend oil of the Calm & Wisdom with Amethyst to use on planes for keeping calm but it can be put on stings, bug bites, on the pillow for sleep, to mask unpleasant smells and generally to keep you calm and focused. The third one I carry is the Truth & Integrity with Aquamarine spray for the throat chakra, because holidays can often be the time when things we have been burying in relationships can surface and need to be exposed. Not always easy to do it from a place of love if we are harbouring resentment. We may now have the time and space to talk through things in a way we don’t in our normal everyday lives. Repeating the affirmation “I speak my truth with courage and integrity” helps keep us from the blame game and stay true to our own truth.
You have the power to change your own expectations, but you can’t do that for anyone else. Work out what’s important to you? Is it really important that you tick all the boxes and have the ‘perfect holiday?’ Or, is what is important being surrounded by people in their usual messy, often moody, our of our control way but generating peace, fun, kindness and love anyway.
Love Sarah xx
