Priime Oils – A one of a kind essential oil range

There are so many essential oils out there currently that can be pretty much used for anything from cleaning, massage, therapeutic and even beauty.

Reviive – A Body wash suitable for even the most sensitive of skin
As you can gather from my earlier posts i am an advocate of natural and organic products, With our every day life we are bombarded with so many toxic chemicals. They come from every different area you can think of, Food and water we ingest, the air we breath and even the chemicals we put onto our body. This combination of nasty chemicals can have very negative effects on our skin and health.
So many people suffer from skin sensitivity and other skin issues these days, Psoriasis, Dermatitis and Eczema are just a few of the issues that so many people suffer from currently.
Everyday more and more people turn to chemical laden products in hope of ridding the symptoms of these conditions. Most people never knowing that most of these ailments are aggravated even more so when you bathe and shower through a combination of the chemicals that are in your bathing water and the chemicals in the products you use, both of which can massively aggravate and increase the severity in many of these conditions.
Not all products are the same you think?
I ve spoken to a few people before and they have said how they use Baby products as these contain no nasty chemicals – Well how wrong could they have been? We have seen in the news recently a company finally admitting that the products they produce that are specifically produced for new born babies contain chemicals that can cause cancer. So if a product designed for babies can contain such harmful ingredients can you even begin to imagine what a product that is suitable for adults could possibly contain?
Most products on the market now contain a right chemical cocktail of ingredients and as we should all know by now we need to avoid as many of these as possible.
Ones to look out for include
Most companies are now trying to mislead people into believing that their products are now safe by using words such as contains organic and natural ingredients because they have now included a few organic and natural ingredients or by saying they have removed some of the nasty chemicals in the products they produce. However this couldn t be further from the truth if people just become a little more educated in the chemicals that go into some of these products still. Just turn over and take a look at the ingredient list and i m sure you will be shocked if you really knew what these chemicals included are and what they can do to your health.
Products are now available that are completely made from natural origin and plant sources and you can even make them yourself if you have the time.
I used to make my own natural products and was even selling them at one point however this was very time consuming, however i then discovered the Reviive range of products and did my research and made the switch. I now only use the Reviive products as i can have 100% faith that they are the best products i can purchase and are suitable for everyday use and every member of the family.
Why should you make the change to the Reviive range?
Well as i do so much research into products and ingredients i have done all the searching for you. There is no guessing work or companies miss leading you with big words. I have tried a lot of different products in my time but non have left my skin feeling as great as the Reviive body wash. Ingredients that are used are from plant based origins and are derived from such sources as White tea, Coconut oil and sweet blue lupin.
Benefits of the Reviive body wash are
- Organic ingredients
- 100% Natural product
- PEG free
- Sulfate free
- Family safe
- Paraben free
- Vegan and Cruelty free
- Phthalate free
- PBA free

Veganism – Why i live and love this lifestyle
I would like to just say i became vegan for the animals only in the beginning but this would be a lie, it was a multitude of factors in the end. I first became a Vegetarian for the animals back in 2010 and i lasted a mediocre 6 weeks before i became ill and resorted back to eating a meat based diet.
So lets start from the beginning, why was i so fat, unhappy and always unhealthy well, I would eat and eat and nothing stopped me. I could go into a buffet and easily finish off 3 plates of food and go back for pudding and then ice cream afterwards. Yes i really could eat a huge amount of food back then.
Wow it makes me cringe to think about it now!!
Now I ve always suffered with weight problems ever since i left school and my weight rocketed from 11 stone to nearly 17 stone at my heaviest. This happened on and off 3 or 4 times till i became Vegan.
Being over weight already comes with it s own risks but couple that with unhealthy relationships, 90 hour working weeks and poor nutrition and what does it spell?
A coronary artery spasm triggering a minor heart attack
Yes at just 29 i had i had this awful experience that i still find it hard to believe. I remember i kept getting banging migraines and i was always tired and stressed. I went to my then employer and asked for some time off, I was a team leader for a support company at the time and my then senior manager really wasn t interested, and working her staff into the ground was her passion in life. So she quit happily refused.
This resulted in me being signed off from work and eventually quiting this company.
So just a few short days after leaving this company i remember being in bed asleep waking to what i thought was an almighty bang and something crashing through the house. I looked around to see what was happening and i couldn t see anything, i was so confused!! then it hit me, like an explosion going off in my chest!!
What on earth was happening, I can still remember that feeling now, The tightness in my chest the pain in my jaw and arm. The only thing i could think was oh no i m going to die!!
Most of that morning still remains a blur, I can remember things like Blood tests and Doctors telling me how i was lucky to be alive with the results i was showing for my BP and HR. How i was lucky it wasn t a major heart attack or a stroke.
Scary stuff to be told really when your so young.
I was told that i had Coronary artery disease and that i would be on medication for thee rest of my life… great just what i needed really. I was informed i would need to start eating healthy and looking after myself and so when i went back home i tried for a while but nothing was helping. My medication was bumped up and i remember it made me so ill, i was putting on more weight and i was having awful nightmares. Nothing i tried was helping.
My Mom had been diagnosed in 2010 with an aggressive form of diabetes and it was proving very difficult to control, at about the same time that i became ill the Doctors had told my mom she needed to start preparing for Dialysis and a possible kidney transplant. My mom outright refused both there and then stating she had lived her life. Her Kidney function had dropped to 21% and the hospital was worried at how fast she was deteriorating, So it was at that point i started googling alternative ways to help my mom become healthy and it was at this point i came across the video on YouTube (reverse your diabetes in 30 days)
Wow how this blew my mind away, Not just for my mom but also myself. i immediately told my mom that i was going veggie and so was she. Again my mom refused, i said to her well if you are not wanting to go down the route of dialysis then you can try this way.
After some persuasion my mom finally came around.
I started reading so much information about vegetarianism and started watching documentaries about how awful the meat industry is and i started to slowly move away from most animal products. It finally hit me when i came across a book called the China study. I was reading how people where reversing their CAD and a numerous host of other illnesses that humans encounter due to a poor nutritional and healthy lifestyle with just nutrition alone.
Hippocrates said “let food be thy medicine” thousands of years ago
I was amazed by all this notion of food curing people and it really hit me hard, I decided at that point i was going to get rid of my medication and adopt as close to vegan lifestyle as possible. I went and told my Doctor the plan and he told me i was crazy and said that CAD couldn t be reversed let alone cured and that i was mad stopping my medication.
I carried on regardless
In just the space of a year i went from 16 stone 7 pounds to a healthy 12 stone i was amazed as i wasn t doing any form of exercise just my care job. At the beginning of 2014 i went for some more tests to see where i was with my health and to every bodies amazement there was no sign of CAD and my HR and BP was better than it had ever been. I was so happy i had done something that i was told couldn t be done.
But i now knew otherwise!
At the end of 2015 my Mom also got some great news she was no longer in renal failure and her results went from a dangerous 21% to a more healthier 54%. The Consultant that she was seeing at the time was amazed and said she had never seen a recovery like this before. I told her about the lifestyle change that my mom had been put on but again another person who said that it could never be down to adopting a plant based lifestyle, My Moms Bloods are now more stable with no major ups and downs. She isn t falling asleep all the time and her pain levels are managed.
Yet the only thing that had changed was her diet
I now only eat a complete vegan diet, My partner Luke is also happily vegan now too. My mom on the other hand has adopted a flexitarian lifestyle and eats Meat on a Sunday only ( i have tried to get rid but she won t have it) and still drinks milk. I m just great full that i now know what i do now about health and nutrition and that when Doctors tell you that most things can t be cured – what they really mean is they can t be cured with westernized medicine.
Your body is a very powerful thing that is capable of so many things if it is provided with all the correct nutrition. Prevention is always better than cure in my mind now, and making steps towards a plant based diet or even adopting more vegan friendly options into your family and you lifestyle isn t hard and provides so many benefits.
When i look back now
I sit and think to myself now about how i used to look at a plate of meat or even a nasty kebab and salivate over it, I think now how disturbing it is seeing a dead animal on a plate and how i used to enjoy consuming it and thinking it was normal. I will never go back to eating anything from an animal. Animals haven t been put on this planet for us to abuse and eat them. I also know now that to get the best out of my life and help i have made the right decision in life not just for me but also for the animals of this planet and the planet itself.
The biggest evil of all
The animal agriculture industry is the biggest evil on this planet and contributes to so many detrimental factors not just on ourselves but also on the environment. If you want to make a positive step for your health, your children s health and the environment for today and the future the best thing you can do is switch to a vegan life style. There are so many tasty and amazing alternatives out there to eating a meat based diet, I now eat more varieties of food than i ever did whilst eating meat and i couldn t feel more happier or proud of what i have achieved.
Saturday – A day to remember!!!
On Saturday i attended my first event for the Opportunity company and finally i got to meet all of the team for the first time. I can t even begin to describe how amazing this day turned out to be, A room filled full of people all on the same amazing journey as yourself, And the most amazing inspirational women you could ever want to meet!!
I have attended events before in network marketing but never have i felt such an electric atmosphere or had the honor of listening to such inspirational people. When i first arrived i was met by the team an instead of things being nerve racking fun just took over. Never have i met such a bunch of crazy and amazing people who came from all different parts of the UK.
we learnt so much that day and it finally sunk in just how amazing this company is and how it really is changing lives for so many people over the world and not just the people who are involved in the company. You see all the time how companies make big claims about how they are helping those that are part of their company and the people who purchase their products only to find out that they re really only out for the financial gains they can make.
Step forward Deanna Latson and the Opportunity company, The presence this lady has is unbelievable!! and listening to her story about how she came to be involved in the health and wellness industry is amazing!!! When you listen to this lady speak you know every word that she says to you is truly genuine and what she is doing for the health and wellness industry is like nothing else compared!!
When we had the recognition of everybody being promoted in the company we walked on stage to receive our pins everyone cheered in the room to genuinely support each others success. We was awarded our pins from Deanna herself and in my time i have met a few celebrities face to face and not once have i been star struck but in the presence of this lady i was well and truly star struck that i grabbed my pin and ran to the stage!!
I don t believe that words can ever describe just how amazing this day actually was but all i can say is you need to be a part of this company if you believe your capable of achieving greatness. Because this company is capable of giving you that opportunity. Just look at some of the people not just men but women too, Lauren Belfry who jumped two promotions at 2 am in the morning whilst also having a young child to care for congratulations to you, Our mentor Andrew Lewis who works a full time job and still manages to get on calls to help us out when we needed no matter what the time is. Lastly but not least James Lavelle who was the fastest person to achieve chair person level 3 in the companies history who baring in mind achieved this whilst also travelling up and down the country promoting the amazing opportunity company.
Ireland is next to be taken over by the Opportunity company so look out for the dates that are being made available over the coming months. I am so optimistic about the future and where this company is going in the industry. The team that i am part of is full of big dreams and with the company and our mentors behind we all truly know we are in the best of hands.
Reviive – A Toothpaste safe for the whole family
In today s market we are bombarded with adverts for Toothpaste and for every different kind of mouth and condition you can think of. You go to the shop and it just gets worse, There are now so many ranges of toothpaste you can t even list them all. But how can you be sure of which one to purchase. Most people usually go for the one that they see on the television the most. As you usually hear in your head the statement recommended by dentists and you believe as a customer that what your buying is safe and effective.
A poison called Fluoride
When you ask the general public they will tell you that Fluoride is good for Teeth, I even had a debate with one person when she tried to tell me that Fluoride is in fact a “super food” and that every one should be ingesting it, Needles to say i don t take dietary advice from her. So what in fact is Fluoride? Yes this is part true, Calcium Fluoride is good for teeth and is naturally present in water, However what is added to our toothpaste is Sodium Fluoride a Yellow poisonous and highly corrosive gas – So why on earth is it in so many of our products?
Studies have shown various symptoms resulting from a sharp intake of Sodium Fluoride, Below are just a few interesting highlights
- 0.3 ppm – Over 21% of dental Fluorosis in at least two teeth
- Up to 1 ppm or more – Fluoride accumulation of the Pineal gland
- 1 ppm – Early menstruation in girls 48% dental Fluorosis
- 1.7 ppm – Confirmed cases of skeletal Fluorosis in people with a kidney deficiency
- 1.8 ppm – Decreased I.Q
- 2.3 ppm – reduces the functioning of the Thyroid gland
- 3.0 ppm – Reduction of female fertility
- 4.0 to 4.3 ppm – Reduction in bone density in the cortical bone (other part of bones) increased cases of bone fractures in humans.
So why is it added to Toothpaste if it s already in our water
There is so much controversy as to why it is added to our toothpaste when there is already a natural source of Calcium Fluoride already present in water. But nobody can agree just why this is, In most countries it is even banned because of it s toxicity. In the early 90 s it was also added to water to help with the huge amount of dental decay cases that happened to be occurring and whilst it did appear to be helping in reduction of the cases it was in fact just down to people becoming more aware of just how important dental hygiene was.
What about all the other toxic ingredients
So if Fluoride wasn t enough to make you think again then what about the other nastiness that come in most branded toothpastes, here are just a few.
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate – A cheap chemical used to bulk up your product and to clean your teeth – This also strips the natural enamel barrier of your teeth contributing to cavities and tooth erosion.
- Propylene Glycol – Added to stop your toothpaste from freezing whilst in transport the same stuff you ll find in your car anti-freeze – linked to Skin irritations and numerous other health concerns
- Parabens – Are cheap preservatives used to extend the shelf life of your toothpaste – These are linked to Hormone disruption and various other health concerns
So why allow this Poison into your children s mouth
So from all the evidence that can be found online and in health magazines it s a wonder why people still use so many brands of toothpaste that contain Fluoride, And why if it s so toxic to an adult then why would you allow a child to use such a toxic product. Don t believe all the hype that Fluoride is good for your children s health or teeth. There is a health warning that states if you swallow Fluoride to go immediately to the Hospital and poison control. But it s still in your toothpaste…
A natural alternative from the Reviive range
There are natural alternatives popping up now so there are options for you to go chemical free. Today with the toxic lives that most people live and are exposed to in their day to day living you should minimize as much as possible the amount of toxic chemicals that you knowingly put into your system and that of your children.

Calm – No more bed time Anxiety
If your like me and have had those nights, or even days when you just can t sleep or relax. Racing thoughts, Pulsing heart beat and at your wits end. Then at some point you may have reached out to your Doctors for medication, The chemist for sleeping tablets and tried everything you can think of to get a descent nights sleep.
“I know i have”
The natural approaches
For as long as i can remember i have had difficulties drifting off to sleep, and if for any reason i have to be up early for an appointment, meeting etc you can bet i won t be getting any sleep. When i used to have to get up at 5 am for work in the morning i used to resort to taking sleeping tablets and i know just how much of a bad effect these can have on your system and health. I tried taking calms and other herbal remedies, and even though these helped make me less anxious they usually ended up making me feel all hot and bothered after about an hour.
“The amount of nights I ve had that have resulted in me not being able to sleep have been endless”.
I had no success with tablets
I never knew much about the benefits of essential oils until i was watching some amazing training on the (benefits of using essential oils in your everyday life). My previous experience of them had been to just use them to make the room smell nice, “Oh how i was so naive to not look more into them”. After the training had finished i ordered the complete range and thought about all the numerous ways i could implement them into my everyday life.
“I held out on being fully optimistic about the Calm drops thinking can it really have the benefits i was hearing”
“The calm blend is essential for relaxation, promotes restful sleep and can aid in reducing irritability and frustration whilst helping you feel more grounded and at peace”
I was so excited when my drops turned up, i couldn t wait for that night to try them out. I had purchased some glass spray jars previously to use to dilute the drops for a spray to mist my bedding and room. Tater that night after a shower i did just that. I sprayed my room, curtains and bedding. I rubbed a few drops onto my wrists and the soles of my feet and settled down to go to sleep…
Wait what had happened?
The next day i woke up, i was shocked! they had actually really worked and i felt so refreshed and invigorated!! (success). I can t even remember falling asleep, These natural drops had managed to do what i thought could never be done, Aided me in getting a great nights sleep with no anxiety or difficulty to report of.
I m not stopping them now
I ve been using these drops for a month now and i have implemented them in so any ways into my life. I ve even given friends some samples for them to use on their children who just won t settle, Babies that just seem to never want to sleep. I ve even had one friend tell me how her dog was always anxious when being left alone in her house and now before she leaves will spray her house and her dogs bed with the calm blend and now when she comes back home the Dog is so much more relaxed and happy to see her.
Other uses I ve found and implemented are
- Few drops on a cotton wool ball in the tumble dryer with bedding, towels and night clothes
- For using to freshen bedding
- Spraying in Children s rooms before bedtime
- Mixing with coconut oil and a moisturizer before bed
- Mixing in a perfume/aftershave roller with some coconut oil to rub on wrists when anxious and stressed
- Few drops in a bath to relax and unwind
- Exams or tests then spray a few drops on your clothes
- Use instead of artificial chemical room sprays and air fresheners
- Use in oil burners
I could probably go on with a list of alternative uses, However if you suffer from anxiety, stress, sleepless nights and find it difficult settling down, have children who struggle to sleep through the night, Then i really can t recommend these drops enough! They are a natural alternative to many alternative methods that people try that can come with so many different health issues from long term use.
I hope that this post can help assist you in whatever struggles you have had with sleep, anxiety and anxiousness.
Slenderiiz – Burn those pounds, Not your money
So it s a new year and as many people can see, there have been a lot of new years resolutions to get fit, healthy and yes you ve guessed it drop some weight. I myself am included in those resolutions. Whatever your reasons are for your new years resolutions, Summer holiday, dropped the weight gained over the festive period or you just want to become healthier for the new year. I myself am planning a two week trip to Orlando in June to do the Theme Parks and sights with my Partner Luke. Something I ve wanted to do for years.
Stubborn Man handles
If your like me and have still been struggling to lose weight and those stubborn areas of what my Mom always referred to as “Puppy Fat” Then look no further than a one of a kind range from Slenderiiz. The line of consists of 6 different one of a kind products, However I m going to concentrate on my two favorite products that gave me real visible results.
I have tried it all
So over the years my weight has yo-yo d from 11 stone to 17 stone on three occasions. I ve gone through endless health problems due to being overweight and unhealthy. “another story” So as you can believe I ve tried a lot of different weight-loss fads, regimes and, programs. I ve spent that much money i can t even recall it all, However i can remember a few popular ones, I ll list 4 of them below including the most expensive treatment i ever tried.
- Non-Invasive Lipo which consisted of ultrasonic Cavitation (to breakdown the fat) and then Infrared waves to (tighten up the loose skin after) I bet you can guess where this is going… Zero results and i was gutted!! 450 down the drain.
- I tried a weight loss program that stretched out over 9 days to help detoxify your system using Aloe vera based supplements – 6 lbs lost and 1 stone gain after 3 weeks,
- I tried a range of premium capsules which consisted of fruit, veg and berries whilst also supplementing a meal with shakes. Again a 6 lb loss but again i gained the weight back, this time just over a stone.
- The Atkins diet – Just made me ill
I don t think there is a regime or product i haven t now tried, and not seen any concrete results from any of them… Until i tried the Slenderiiz program!
My starting weight
Finally a product that delivered results
I was shocked and amazed at what i was seeing on the weighing scales from just using this program for a week. I had lost nearly 12 pounds in that week and two inches from my waist line. I went from a 34 to a 32 #Result! What had i changed? Nothing!! I didn t have to mix any shakes, skip meals all i had to do was drink lots of fresh water, incorporate clean eating and take a few drops into my mouth a few times a day before meals. I loved these drops, The taste was amazing, I was not gorging on food as i was previous and i was seeing results. Not only this people could see the results to.
One week later
Taking the United Kingdom by storm
Now everybody is becoming aware of these weight loss drops and seeing fantastic results, There is a whole Facebook page set up for people to post their results and get support and advice with the plan on Slenderiiz. I have yet to see a bad review on them from anyone who has tried the plan. There are even celebrities now using them and posting there results with the Slenderiiz drops.
Benefits of the Slenderiiz program include
- 100% natural homeopathic product
- No nasty side effects
- No skipping meals
- No mixing shakes
- Twice as much weight loss

So instead of trying other weight loss programs, and wasting your money then try a program that actually works!
Reviive – Say hello to hair vitality
As a global population we spend 230 billion a year on beauty products, From that we spent an estimated 80 billion on Hair care products in 2015 alone. This is set to increase every year by billions of pounds. But are we as a consumer really getting what we paid for?. You see all these advertisements coming from left right and center with new innovative ingredients designed to give you even more luscious locks of hair. Stories coming from magazines, editors and reporters who are paid expensive holidays and bonuses to write miss-leading information, To do anything they can to get you to buy a product that will also benefit them.
Beauty products are now seen on television nearly as much as the food industry and its easy to see why with the profits that this industry brings to the companies that produce such products.
Hair care products are designed to nourish and keep hair free from tangles, daily damage from pollution and other factoring problems which can lead to dry and brittle hair. The hair care business sector consists of a large number of items, for example, cleanser, conditioners, serums, colorants, and so forth. These are made out of both natural and manufactured synthetic ingredients.
In today s way of life, beautiful hair is a statement that depicts the thought of keeping up a young youthful appearance, and this element firmly impacts buying choices among customers.
But do we really know what actually goes into our products?
You hear all the time about ingredients being found to cause problems to your health and wellness and many times people just turn a blind eye to warnings in hope of maintaining the hair they have paid out so much to keep maintained. But if you really knew about some of these toxic items that are in these products you would be horrified. Out of all these ingredients that go into making that 1 bottle of product maybe a small percentage are actually needed to help clean and maintain your hair. The rest are purely added to bulk up the contents, make them cheaper to produce, smell nicer, appear nicer and finally to make them last longer.
What should we be looking out for and avoiding
When you reach for that product that you ve seen on a Television advert or read in a glossy magazine, don t be fooled by statements such as made with “organic extracts or no harsh chemicals” These statements are usually employed to confuse and mislead you as most will still contain a multitude of harmful ingredients. People need to just spend a little more time researching and becoming wiser to what we are all being fooled into buying.
A list of Chemicals that should be avoided include
- Dimethicone – Is a Silicone based oil used to coat your hair and make it appear more shinier and softer. This can carry side effects such as irritation to your scalp and skin, including break outs of acne and spots.
- Sodium Laureth Sulfate or SLS – Are cheap chemicals added to your hair care products to produce that foaming action that cleans and strips your hair of all the oil and dirt build up. Most people don t realize this but surfactants have the side effect of also removing the essential oils out of your hair resulting in your hair drying out and even in worse case scenarios loss of hair.
- Sodium Chloride – While not a toxic chemical this is added to increase the thickness of the product to make it feel like a more premium product – Side effects include dry and itchy scalp and yes you ve guessed it again, hair loss. People who also have keratin treatments should avoid this ingredient in products as it reduces the benefits of your treatment faster.
- Parabens – Known for their toxic nature these chemicals are added to prolong shelf life of the product and side effects can include irritations to skin, scalp and eyes and can even effect your hormone balance from long term usage.
- Propylene Glycol – Which i think everybody knows now is used in anti-freeze that you put into your car but still finds its way into so many everyday products. This is added to the product to stop it from freezing whilst in transit during shipping. Nasty side effects from this product include skin irritation, severe allergic reactions and even alteration of the skin structure itself.
- Synthetic ingredients – Including fragrances, perfumes and colors are added for various reasons. To make a product smell nicer, appear nicer, feel nicer and cheaper to produce. Just alone synthetic fragrances can have over 3000 different chemicals alone that can be added to your products. There is an endless list of negative effects that can happen to your health with these artificial chemicals.
There is plenty more different ingredients that are bad for you but I ve just listed a few of the main ones
There really is no need for all the chemicals in the products you use anymore there are varieties that are coming out now that are completely made from organic and natural ingredients. But always do your checking, i remember when i first became aware of natural products and chemicals. I was a rep for a massive Network marketing company that based their products on the Aloe Vera plant, and they always portrayed their products to be completely natural and i was lured in by this. This was one of the reason i became a rep for them however after using some of the products for a short while i noticed i was getting skin irritations from them. So always do a little of your own research if in doubt.
