Stress Less - Essential Oil Blend

Cupboard Keepers

I love these! I have one in every room of my unit. They keep their fragrance for a long time. I still have some I bought at least 5 years ago. I recommend them!

Deep Sleep

Deep Sleep is an amazing product, it works for me. Such an amazing smell and sends you off to sleep in no time. Highly recommend this product. Thank you MoonHaven, my order arrived promptly and the soap samples were a treat.

Lovely product and great service

I bought this little box of products at 36 weeks pregnant in anticipation of my labour. To my astonishment the package arrived less than 24 hours after me ordering it online and it was a good job as I ordered on the Monday, received on the Tuesday and went into unnexpected early labour on the Wednesday.
I used the oils throughout my labour and believe they comforted and calmed me while my husband used the massage oil on my back during contractions.
Every midwife who entered the room commented on how beautiful it smelt.
Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to try the perenium cream but that’s for next time!

Can't live without Achy Breaky Rub

I suffer from chronic headaches and migraines, plus general chronic pain - especially back, legs and feet after a long day at work. This product provides essential and importantly non pharmacological relief from chronic pain. I use it every day and often share it with my work colleagues and family - the smell is amazing and the affects even better - instant relief. It's like owning my very own magic healing balm!

2 Essential Steps For Healthy Winter Skin

2 essential steps for healthy winter skinToday I want to share with you the 2 essential steps to avoiding dreaded dry skin and  maintaining great skin throughout winter.

Winter weather can take its toll on your skin.
Cold, blustery winds, bone chilling freezing temperatures interspersed with low humidity climate controlled warmth as we move inside – our skin has to be able to take it all.  And in winter it can come out the worse for wear.
So winter is an ideal time to take a little extra care of our skin… give it a bit more pampering than usual.

Dry Skin = Dull, Lifeless Skin

Paradoxically our skin tends to dry out during the winter months.  You see in Australia, during winter the humidity in the air can drop quite dramatically.  We also spend more time indoors in “temperature controlled” environments. All this means that any moisture  produced by the skin is rapidly evaporated. This means natural lipids (oils ) produced by the skin can tend to dry and clog pores.

All this can lead to dull, lifeless looking skin (and for those with eczema or psoriasis – itchy, broken and distressed skin).

The 2 Essential Steps to Great Winter Skin

With just 2 simple steps you can change the appearance and feel of your winter ravaged skin.

Body-Polish-Ginger-SpiceStep 1: Exfoliate

Gentle exfoliation helps to unplug pores, remove the lose flakes of skin which cause your skin to appear dull and lifeless.

Note the use of the word “gentle”. While a product may be called a scrub or polish, the application of these products are meant to be light and gentle. Harshly scrubbing your skin leaves your skin deeply damaged and denuded of protective cells.

So the mantra is to apply these products as if you are putting the product on a baby!

Moon Haven’s Body Polish is an ideal body scrub to use in the shower (plus is turns into a moisturising lotion when it gets wet!)

Body-Butter-Avocado-LrgStep 2: Moisturise

To help keep your skin glowing and healthy you need to moisturise it regularly.  This is even more important in winter when humidity and climatic conditions are harsh.
So after you have gently polished your skin (do this in the shower…it’s the easiest way) dry off and immediately spread a thin layer of your moisturiser of choice.

We recommend our luxuriously rich Body Butters for body moisturisation.  Just a small amount applied to the skin each day will keep the dreaded winter dryness away.

Of course as well as exfoliating and moisturising appropriately keeping hydrated, eating well, and sleeping soundly all help to keep your skin in tip top condition.
