More About the Author
I started to question the manufacturers about the ingredients in the products I was recommending and selling. In the late eighties I discovered aromatherapy (when people didn't even know what the word meant!). While studying to become a clinical aromatherapist in London I began to see how natural ingredients were more effective AND less damaging to your skin AND your health. Using my skin as a laboratory I investigated how nutrition and natural therapies can make a positive difference to the health of your skin. I became VERY disillusioned with the beauty industry. I could not live a lie any longer and in 1997 we sold-up and left the beauty industry behind and took a different career path. In 2001 I started a marketing company, never wanting anything to do with the 'ugly' "beauty" industry. But my friends wanted their skin to look like mine and pestered me for my 'skin secrets' which lead to a book being written about what I had learned about the beauty industry rip-offs. Titled "If You Want Great Skin, Throw Away Your Cosmetics", it was published as a hard copy book in 2004 but seems people were not yet ready to hear this information. Seems they loved their fancy jars of stuff too much - seriously. So I went on with life...
My husband (and childhood sweetheart) 'thought' we could not have children but at the age of 40 I gave birth to a beautiful boy. Being a parent has you see how trivial some things are, things that we 'thought' were important really aren't at all. Being 'older' parents we thought we'd do some travelling while still young which had us touring around Australia for two and half years. Want to get closer to your family? Try living in a caravan for 2 years!
You know those moments in time that change your life? We had a MAJOR one in November 2010 when I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer. Luckily I was extremely healthy BEFORE I began the chemotherapy which made it easier for me to heal, possibly the reason I survived - as I had a 10% chance of survival! (I'll write a book about 'that' journey one day.)
In the meantime ... here I am, living in gorgeous Cairns Australia giving thanks and gratitude for life. It's so very precious.

I find that when Buy expensive products - they sit there because it is too much trouble and a lot of work - different creams and lengthy processes.

I'm not that familiar with essential oils; I found incorporating this element to skin care and health to be exciting and different than the usual nutritional information.Published 18 months ago by Peter
