Ripples of Change

2014-06-12 07.18.31

As Be genki approaches its 10th birthday, I’m on one hand extremely excited and grateful to still be doing what I love to do – providing you with the inspiration and possibility for more energy, less stress, a better relationship with yourself and loved ones, and the possibility of a good night’s sleep.

On the other hand we’re taking the time to look at the way we do what we do, and to question if there is a better way we can help Be genki touch the hearts and lives of those who are seeking more holistic health, happiness and wellbeing.

Why? because every time I receive a letter from one of our customers about how a Be genki product has changed their life, a little tear of joy wells up inside my eyes.

The most recent one was as follows:

Thank you so much for my last sample. I have been massaging the Be Genki Serene body oil into my 2 year old and for the first time in many many months she is sleeping through the night. It is a relief to find a product and blend of oils that has helped with Georgie’s restlessness at night and my own anxiety surrounding it.  – Melanie Continue reading

I should probably get up at some point

I should probably get up at some point

Do you ever have mornings where you can relate to this cute little critter?

As soon as the mornings get cooler, I’ll do everything in my power to sneak in just a few more minutes of snuggly warmth. EVERYTHING! Even convince myself that answering emails on my iPhone in bed constitutes progress. It is not, however, a good habit for me to get in to, and one which I am demanding of myself to stop as of today, so that my morning exercise doesn’t become a ‘thing of the past’. Continue reading

Indulge in a Loving, Nurturing, Self-Caring Ritual Overflowing with Scents of Rose, Jasmine, and Ylang Ylang.

Ahhh Valentine’s Day. Whether or not you revel in the love letters, bouquets of flowers and boxes of chocolate or ‘bah humbug’ your way through the “Hallmark Event”, I can’t help but think that it’s a nice little reminder for all of us to nurture the love in our relationships.

We all have relationships. Whether they are with our family, friends or lovers, they are all sacred friendships that require a certain amount of energy so that they remain positive. One relationship that we often forget about is the relationship we have with ourself. This is the most important of them all, and the one from which all other relationships stem from. It you don’t love yourself, how can you truly love someone else? Continue reading

Bedtime Rituals to Help Promote a Tranquil Sleep

Considering the stress and stimulation that we are increasingly being exposed to, it’s no wonder that many of us find it difficult to fall asleep at night, suffer from poor sleep or wake up feeling tired and flat.

Checking emails in bed on the iPhone or Blackberry (the one thing I am most certainly guilty of), eating a large meal at nighttime, going to the gym late at night, worrying about how much work there is to get through, watching television in bed, depending on alcohol or pharmaceuticals to help fall asleep, are all recipes for an inability to fall asleep or disrupted night’s sleep.

Transform Your Mundane Morning Shower into a Heavenly Sensory Experience

I’m a big believer in taking the time to create home spa rituals on a regular basis. Not only is it the perfect opportunity to nurture your self on the physical level, lathering nourishing oils on to your body; it’s also a luxurious and effective way to soak up the emotional benefits of aromatherapy, via bathing in an essential oil enhanced bath; as well as a calming and energizing time to spend curled up on the couch sipping on a cup of herbal tea whilst listening to music, reading a chapter of a book or simply sitting and “be”-ing. For years I’ve been harping on about how important it is to make the time for YOU so that you can be the happier and healthier you that you deserve to be. There is, however, one question that I get asked over and over again… “but how do i create a spa experience if I don’t have a bath?” So, I am dedicating the October ritual to all of you that have showers.

Everyday Tips to Help Yourself De-stress

Anxiety, sleeping problems, mood swings, stress, the “blues”… do these words sound all too familiar to you? It seems that as the years go by, these stress-related states are becoming more prevalent, with mental health problems fast becoming the number one health issue. If you are currently suffering or would like to prevent these debilitating feelings from consuming your life, there is, in fact, much that you can do to help yourself be the happy and healthy person that you deserve to be.

In my opinion it all starts with the basics: eating healthily, exercising regularly, breathing pure natural scents and setting aside a few moments in the day to nurture yourself. Continue reading
