THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT - Karina - Yoga Bristol

My name is Karina and I am a teen and children’s yoga teacher based in Bristol. Previously a Geography teacher, I decided to launch a business combining two of my passions: teaching young people and yoga. My own practice has been hugely enhanced through Zephorium products, so I decided to begin using them in my classes with teenage girls. The spray is a total game-changer. I can say goodbye to the aromas produced by a whole day of P.E lessons in the sports hall, and now the girls walk in and comment on how amazing it smells. A nurturing, safe and inviting space has been created, and so the girls are able to put themselves in the mindset of self-care.

Zephorium- I can’t thank you enough. Those ten minutes of stillness and calm is truly life-changing during a time in their lives where speed of change is amazing, but also overwhelming.
 The biggest impact, however, has been through using the oils at the end of the class during meditation. The girls sit cross-legged with their wrists open on their knees and begin to meditate. I walk around and apply an oil of their choice to their wrists. They then bring their hands in prayer to the space between the brows and continue to breath deeply, taking in the scent.

This has not only become their favourite part of the class that they actively tell me they look forward to (fondly nicknamed ‘smelly time’), but a group of girls that walked in giggly and fidgety can take themselves to a place of stillness and internal awareness that astounds me. Zephorium enables this deepening to quietness, mindfulness and relaxation. Suddenly nobody looks at anyone else, giggles at anyone else or even cares about anyone else. Girls have noted:

“I sleep better after your yoga classes.” “If you ask me to be still and relax I can never do it but at the end of the yoga class it’s easy.”

Carrot Oil For A Glowing Complexion

This rejuvenating face serum has a powerful combination of Carrot and Sweet Orange oil along with potentised Carnelian Crystal, designed to encourage freedom and creativity whilst helping to rebalance the Sacral Chakra.
Loaded with vitamins, this oil rejuvenates the skin by intense hydration in the way nature intended. Carrot oil is THE oil for skin regeneration, along with Apricot oil; its lovely colour also imparts a light glow to the skin, perfect for all these cold gloomy days.

As well as rejuvenating the skin, Carrot Oil can also help with:
Healing skin disorders
Preventing wrinkles and stretch marks form appearing
Antioxidant protection
Blood stimulation
Stress reliever

You can also digest pure carrot oil; though please do not digest our face serums, as some have tried! By digesting pure carrot oil it is said to have a number of benefits from being an antiseptic to a detoxifier. Please do your research though before ingesting this oil, as with many essential oils it comes with a few warnings.

As well as Carrot Oil our Carnelian Crystal Face serum is blended with Sweet Orange Oil, often known as ‘the smiley oil’ for its uplifting and refreshing qualities, Apricot Kernal Oil, Sunflower Oil, Vitamin E and Frankincense. With a combination of all these skin super oils its no wonder we are seeing a lovely glow from all those who use this serum.

Natural beauty tip:  place a few drops on your hair too, as carrot oil stimulates hair growth and makes hair smooth and shiny.

Directions for use: Use after cleansing and before moisturising, to ensure the skin receives a nutritional boost. Apply morning and night. Cleanse and tone face, put 1-2 drops of oil on fingertips and gently massage oil into skin paying attention to problem areas. Leave to absorb the vitamins for 5 minutes. Apply moisturiser on top to seal in the natural skin repairing qualities of the oils.

Discover our 7 other face serums, each designed for unique skin types. Each of our Face Serums comes in a beautiful 30ml glass bottle with pipette. Shop online here.

Advisory: please consult a holistic health professional or aromatherapist before using any essential oils.

February Therapist Spotlight

Updesh Kaur - Since 1999 I have been involved in self-development work exploring my own natural gifts in the psychic and energy related fields.  Aside from this, after years of physical fitness and sports activity including athletics, boxing and many types of yoga, in 2004 Kundalini yoga found me and I began to merge these two areas of my life.  My spiritual name Updesh Kaur, by which I am known in the yoga community, means one who lives the essence of the Guru's teachings.  Kaur means the Princess/Lioness of God who walks with grace and power throughout her life.

Teaching classes and workshops since 2009, I am very enthusiastic about the healing qualities of Kundalini Yoga. More recently I have been working with sound healing and play singing bowls and Gong. I love the transformation that Kundalini yoga brings to individuals, it can set people free from addictions and help work through blocks. It's great to help combat stress and bring calmness of mind.  Sound is one of the most primal forms of healing. It can help people to manifest their full potential and step into the flow of life. 
I use Zephorium aura sprays for space clearing before and during class, once everyone is relaxed I will usually spray a light mist of which ever one I intuitively feel is required for the group. During consultations with one to one clients I light one of the Zephorium candles, heart- rose is a favourite, to help open the heart and communicate clearly. Some of my yoga brothers and sisters use the Zephorium body oils for the practice of ishnan (Early morning cold showers which is a wonderful way to wake up the body and psyche each day.

I find it a blessing to be able to facilitate the elevation of a person and to see the change in their energy field.  To promote personal development just by delivering these teachings is so wonderful.  Sometimes the changes manifest subtly as a more restful night’s sleep, to help relax, or be without feelings of stress in our busy lives.  But either way the results can be seen and felt very quickly.

"Happiness is your Birth right - Live it."  Yogi Bhajan

I am currently facilitating healing workshops for beginners in Kundalini yoga.
Sound healing work-shops which include meditation, mantra, singing bowls and gong. I also provide stress management technique workshops and Mindfulness training for corporate clients. I am a Master in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, I combine these healing energies with Kundalini Yoga, to elevate individuals, to reach their full potential, to free the mind and detoxify the body.
See below for upcoming events.

Become A Qualified Zephorium Energy Healer

Living my life in service is truly a remarkable thing, journeying with others is a magnificent path and I feel blessed 22 years ago, to have chosen ‘the road less travelled’. Sharing the information is what I now love to do. This could be your world too!

So…. I am getting lots of questions and keen enquiries about the new training I am offering from February. It’s everything I teach in one big hit! Here is a deeper explanation as requested by lots of YOU….
The basis of the training is self-healing, whilst learning to become a powerful energy healer. It is only when we are in alignment ourselves that we have anything to offer another. You will learn to interpret the Universal Energies to translate what is vibrationally occurring within YOU, around YOU and for OTHERS.

As with the Satvik Training School which I ran for 12 years, the basis of healing is to clear out our own energy blocks first and no one can do that but you! Self-empowerment is the aim NOT dependency. Based on Chinese energy practices including Chi Gung, you will be required to do a daily routine to first clear your energy body and secondly to re-charge your system to facilitate powerful healing for self and others. No ‘burnt out’ therapists here!

You will learn how to cleanse your internal organs in order to learn to interpret emotions and blockages in others. This combined with all my skills and experience teaching psychic development, mediumship, epigenetics: – how our thoughts and feelings create our world, and using the Zephorium products during your healing work, is going to pack a powerful punch in self-healing for yourself and others. All of that is condensed into 1 day a month (Sunday) training for 10 months!

Expect to work hard, clear your energy body, have some tears and lots of laughter as you return energetically to the powerful, creative being that you are. You will have case studies as you learn the protocol, immerse yourself in nature AND learn to give a powerful, intuitive healing…..This is going to be SUCH fun!

I can’t wait…… This could easily be a 2 year course but these days I like to ‘sock’ it to you fast so you can take it out into the world and integrate it into your world. Things have changed, the energy is moving fast… no need to hang around now. If you are ready for a new career, to add to your toolbox of therapies for your practice or simply to help yourself and your family then come and join me for this life changing course.

Let me know if you want to attend, we can have a chat about it in more detail.

Sundays - Feb 26th , March 26th, April 23rd, May 21st, June 18th, July 16th

Here are some more lovely words from students to inspire you. You get the gist – it could be you!

“Amazing day, I can’t thank you enough. I am just so excited at what is unfolding for me in the future, i truly felt a glimpse of its magnificence. You are an inspirational and gifted teacher, thank you for being a huge part of my life. In Love,” K

“Hi Sarah Just wanted to say thank you for that mind-blowing day on Saturday. Both J & I feel like we have had some kind of 'activation', and it's like the gift that keeps on giving, interesting effect as it feels like something building, like some sort of deeper waking up, riding a cosmic wave of consciousness. POWERFUL STUFF! Seriously amazing things have happened in just the two days since the Saturday, Wow.”…. Z

“Hi Sarah. Thanks so much for today, as always a real treat… I find myself so enthralled and like a sponge I want to absorb all the information and make the very best out of everything I hear from both you and the others. I am so eager to learn more and more and every time I come away with a heart full of hope, joy and love for everyone and everything and my life. I still have not managed to go to sleep with excitement and it is nearly three o’clock in the morning!”…. A T

Therapist Spotlight: September Edition

My name is Jakki Hesse and I have been studying and working in the field of massage and alternative therapies for over 10 years. I am based at Amethyst Osteopathic & Complimentary Therapies Clinic in Selsdon and I am registered with the Association of Physical & Natural Therapists.
I started on my path of alternative therapies in early 2002 when my marriage was breaking down and it was leading me to re evaluate what I was doing with my life. I started to look at myself and the lifestyle I was leading and it lead me to the wonderful joyful journey I am still taking today, with new experiences and new learnings that continue to help me grow and blossom.My training started with Usui Reiki and I discovered that, as well as self healing this could be used to help facilitate healing in others. 
In 2015 I trained in a different Reiki called “Shambala” which has bought a wonderful new energy to my work and this quickly lead me to advance in my massage therapy. I specialise in seeing the person as a “whole” and I became interested in fascia because the whole body is connected through it. I trained in Fascial Unwinding and energy awareness as it compliments what I already do. I now specialise in light touch therapy to help with Scars, this is amazing work developed by "Sharon Wheeler" in America and there are a growing number of therapists trained in this work.
I use Zephorium products personally and within my work, all my massages are using Zephorium oils and clients comment on the wonderful smells, I look at my clients as they come through the door and intuitively decide which colour I will use, I normally ask them to then choose a colour from the oils that are out and more often than not they choose  the same colour I intuitively chose for them.
I use the sprays along with the massage oils and if people are coming for a reiki session I will use the aura sprays to help move blockages and then ground people at the end of the session.
I also use with scar clients at the end of a session either the green or pink oil and have the intention of putting love into the scar and I have found that this really helps with the healing process.
I believe in empowerment , building a persons strengths and reminding my clients, when they are unable to remember themselves, that they are “imperfectly perfect” because society states we should be better than, slimmer than, richer than other but I want to help people just “BE” and the Zephorium ethos fits with my beliefs perfectly. 
In my spare time I spend time with my partner and my fur baby Bonzo taking him for long walks and travelling in our motor home called Betsy.

Day Dreaming About The Universe

Scientists have recently seen a plume of radiation of some kind flying out of a black hole. This sort of thing always gets me thinking about energy and its inability to be destroyed. I truly believe that nothing is ever lost and the theory that everything is sucked into a black hole and gone forever has never felt right to me. If energy can never be destroyed then how can love be destroyed? I have often wondered if black holes are actually the beginnings of another universe, maybe in another dimension. The black holes start with a big bang and explosion of light then universal matter is sucked though a gateway into where? Could it be that in another dimension a universe is being born and is being created from the building blocks of our universe?  How magical and mystical it all is.

With love

Long Luscious Locks with natural aromatherapy oils.

People often comment on my hair, how soft it is, and shiny! Well my secret is this. Wash and dry hair as normal, then put a couple of drops of Zephorium body oil onto the palm of your hand. Rub hands together to spread the oil then lightly rub your hands through your hair. Be careful to just lightly run your palms through your hair so that you don’t leave too much oil in one place. Less is definitely more with oil. Only work on hair from about 2 inches away from the scalp to the ends of the hair. If you get too near the scalp it can look greasy. Used correctly the oil gives an instant glossy, sleek look to hair without having to spend hours styling. It’s great for photos as the oil reflects back to the camera giving hair a lovely sheen. You can use any of the body oils to achieve a great look, and your hair will smell nice too! If I want an extra special look I use a couple of drops of the carrot and carnelian face oil which has a slight orange glow and on blond or grey hair this can really liven up your colour with that sun-kissed look.

With love
