When the outside world is throwing crazy at you.

When the outside world is throwing crazy at you, put your feet strong on the ground and take a deep breath! Sometimes, I look at the current beauty models and I feel, oh boy! What a sad state of affairs! Confusion is the game and it is all around us. But we need not to succumb to it. The fact is that you were born a perfect being and nothing and no one can take this away from you unless you’re willing to surrender your greatness. Being an expression of life (which you are) is in itself sacred and beautiful. There’s no need to augment anything. ‘Perfect’ features (whatever the trend is at th ..read more

Suppressing skin problems is not a solution!

Suppressing skin problems is not a solution! Suppression drives problems deeper into the tissues. When your skin is experiencing a challenge, in a way it is communicating to you that something in your present way of being needs attention and adjustment. Maybe it is something as simple as your skincare choices needing reassessment. But more often your skin is letting you know that your emotional and/or physical health are in need of attention and thoughtful support. So what happens when rather than providing attention and thoughtful support, your skin is forced to shut up through the applicat ..read more

Calendula - my plant ally
Woman Divine Blog

1w ago
When we study herbs, we’ll often choose one herb to work very closely with and study for the given year. We call it our plant ally. We consciously commit to spending time with our plant ally. We sit with it, taste it, make various forms of medicine with it, grow it if possible, observe it in its habitat, meditate on it…, and keep detailed notes. I even put mine under my pillow when I go to sleep. Hoping for some extra info coming through while I sleep:) This year long process allows us to develop a deep relationship with our chosen plant and if we are truly present with our plant ally, the k ..read more

The cold weather is here, what does that mean for your skin?
Woman Divine Blog

When the weather gets cold everything constricts in a protective response. Exposure to low temperatures stimulates cold receptors of the skin and puts the sympathetic nervous system into action. Sympathetic stimulation causes vascular constriction in your skin, arms and legs and all energy goes towards delivering blood where oxygen is most needed during this fight or flight response. Skin becomes of secondary importance when you are exposed to very cold temperatures. Thus always bundle up and keep your skin and body warm. Many people experience skin dryness, dehydration and sensitivity du ..read more

Sowing seeds.

It is this time of the year again! A couple of weeks ago I received an email from the wonderful Anne who grows healing plants for our WD formulas. Every year around this time, Anne wants to know what to plant and how much to plant for WD for the year. It takes a lot of planning on her part to deliver what WD needs. And it’s not that easy to plan because weather changes and every growing season is a little different. For example some years calendula grows in abundance and other years it is too dry and flowers are scarce. So it is a bit of a guessing game. Anne in her element It also is a guess ..read more

Heart to heart on botox.

Botox is a controversial topic. And a bit of a touchy one for sure. There are strong views in both camps. I try to give more of a heart to heart or a woman to woman approach to the subject. Hope you enjoy listening! I would love to know what are your thoughts on botox. Have you done it? Are you thinking of doing it? Please share if you feel comfortable to do so:) Magdalena xo ..read more

Be your own medicine woman.

New clients often come to me when they feel completely frustrated and confused about their skin. They tell me that wherever they go seeking support they receive different and conflicting advice and every new attempt to seek help, simply adds to their skin care confusion. We can probably agree that we live in a society/culture which strongly promotes seeking expert services/advice for literally everything. There are obviously numerous benefits to having easy access to an array of specialists. However it is never desirable to hand over our decision making to someone else and to abandon the gift ..read more

It begins with intention.
Woman Divine Blog

I think that everything that we do repeatedly and on a daily basis is worth looking at and reassessing from time to time. And this includes your skin care practice.  There are physical aspects of skin care worth reassessing every once in a while, like:  How does my skin look and feel? Is it healthy? Do I enjoy using my current skin care products? And do I feel that they work for me? Do I have any new skin health concerns? If so, do I need support to address them or do I know exactly what to do? Am I devoting enough time to care for myself? Is there any room for improvement ..read more

Your Winter Skin

Winter is here in full swing, and your skin may be feeling dry, dehydrated, dull or it may be itchy. I’ve prepared some holistic skin care info and a few tips to help you ride the wave. Before we get to remedies though, it will be helpful to understand that the words ‘dry’ and ‘dehydrated’ are often used interchangeably to describe the state of our skin. However they shouldn’t be because they mean two different things. DEHYDRATED SKIN refers to the skin which lacks the proper moisture/water level. Dehydration often presents itself through fine lines, lack of elasticity or roughnes ..read more
