This delicious recipe combines two of my favourite ingredients – a tasty blend of creamy coconut and zesty lemon and coconut. These Bliss Balls are a super simple easy to make no bake recipe. It literally involves placing all ingredients into a blender and rolling them into balls – Easy peasy!! Read More

Essential Oils – what is all the fuss about?

Essential Oils – what is all the fuss about?

IMG_3707-900x440
As many of you will know from previous posts, I am now hooked on Essential Oils. I’m sure you have noticed the “new hype” of essential oils and now you are wondering what all the fuss is about and if they actually work.

These gorgeous oils have changed our lives for the better.  I love always having a natural solution to reach for when we have any health concerns.  I believe it is so important to be able to use natural alternatives on your loved ones and in particular the little ones.  Not only have we replaced our medicine cabinet with these oils, I now make my own cleaning and beauty products and use these oils to enhance the kitchen. It really is simple!  But for those not keen on DIY there are also many pre-made health, cleaning and beauty products that you can buy which are made from these precious oils. Read More

I'm a real sucker for anything citrus so I created this tasty raw lemon slice that I know you will love.

LEMONS, LEMONS, LEMONS!!  I love citrus and in particular anything with lemons.  Lucky for me, lemons are in season at the moment and this year and our tree is full of this tasty fruit!

Last year I posted a healthy take on the traditional Lemon Slice, and previously a Lemon and Coconut slice.  So this year I wanted to experiment with a raw lemon slice and I have a found a winner.  AND it is one the whole family enjoys. Read More

A toxin free toilet cleaner that is great to refreshen your toilet between cleans. They're fun to make and only require a few simple ingredients

Nobody likes cleaning toilets!  So this is a great option to make your life easier so you can deodorise and clean your toilet at the same time. This recipe is super simple with only a few household ingredients that you probably already have on hand in addition to your favourite essential oils – baking soda, citric acid and essential oils.

I like to do a decent clean once a week and then half way through the week these bombs are a great way to refreshen our toilet. Read More

Ginger & Lemon Crunch

Ginger & Lemon Crunch

  • Servings: Around 18 small pieces
  • Difficulty: easy

A quick and easy, tasty slice using two flavours that complement each other so well - ginger and lemon.


This recipe uses one of Hunter Gatherer Gourmet’s Paleo cake mixes for the base – The Ginger cake mix. I have tweaked this in order to make more of a crunchy ginger base (vs. a softer cake base). The best thing about this recipe (and these mixes) is that you will not be able to tell that this is a healthy, unprocessed and refined sugar free crunchy ginger base.

I combined this with a creamy raw lemon icing which includes the addition of a lemon essential oil which takes this flavour to the next level. Of course if you don’t have lemon essential oils on hand, I have provided alternative options. But I would highly recommend the addition of this oil!”  Read More

An impressive healthy treat which is super simple to make, no one will know it was so easy. Also makes a great homemade edible gift. Gluten free, dairy free and also a nut free option.


This Chocolate Bark looks amazing, yet is super simple to make. Something you can quickly whip up when you know someone is popping round at short notice and you want something to impress them with. It is also a good option for a decadent homemade edible gift (made with love) that again, is sure to impress.  Or something to take to a dinner party when you’re on dessert or if the hostess says “don’t bring anything.” Read More
