The Integration of Pure Essential Oils for Body/Mind Balance,Redfern, Australia

The Integration of Pure Essential Oils for Body/Mind Balance


So let’s get real for a moment…

The world we live in is an amazingly intricate web of balance between the body, mind and spirit in regards to our health and wellbeing. Mindfulness and work/life balance are catch phrases thrown around like confetti. But are we really achieving it successfully? Or are we running around on empty trying to do it all, stressed out of our minds and finding it all too much?

I love finding techniques that help balance and support me in my day to day. I use Yoga, Meditation, Therapy, Essential Oils, Tapping, Massage and other healing modalities to keep me balanced and centered.

However, it is also true that we are exposed to a lot of chemicals, contamination and pollution in our environment, homes and places of work that can affect our sleep patterns, mood and general wellbeing.

It’s time to wake up to the fact that natural medicine is not alternative, hippy or wooo wooo! Plants have been the way of healing our bodies and minds for millennial, way before the invention of modern medicine just over 150 years ago. Ayurveidc medicine (the 5,000 year old Indian Science of Life), only uses plants to restore the body and mind to health when there is imbalance.

We have been told that modern medicine is our saviour and while I agree that it has its place in our system, I do not believe it is the be all and end all. To prevent disease and stay healthy, there are sooooo many things we can do. Firstly, taking responsibility for our wellness is top priority. Stop giving your power away to a medicial professional who just wants to treat your symptoms and not the underlying cause of your ailment.

Take back your power and learn how to integrate nature’s powerful plant medicines into your life through the most pure and pristine essential oils on the planet.

I will show you how to replace most of the medications you have in your cabinet at home, with natural plant alternatives and how powerful they are at helping with headaches, sleep issues, digestive issues, immunity, skin, DIY cleaning, relaxation, energy. You name it, there’s an oil for that!

Intrigued? Come and find out more and bring along your health conscious friends and family!

This 45-minute event will include tea and take home oil samples for you to try.

We will learn so many incredible things about the medicinal grade dōTERRA oils including:

+ what are essential oils+ how do I use them (aromatically, topically, internally)+ what are the top 10 oils I should have in my medicine cabinet at home to help treat everyday ailments+ which are the best oils to use to overhaul your home cleaning regime+ how to use essential oils to help with energy, relaxation, stress, anxiety, headaches, insomnia, washing, DIY cleaning, mood management and so much more!

You’ll also have the chance to set up a wholesale account if you’d like to jump on in straight away with some beautiful oils. However, there is no obligation at all. Just come and experience the power of plant magic!

I can’t wait to share my passion of essential oils with you…

I came away feeling empowered to make positive changes to create a much healthierlifestyle for me and my  family. Cherie (May 2010)

I would really like to thank you for arranging to have such a knowledgeable person come and share their wealth of  information with us all. This presentation has truly changed my lifeand for that I will be eternally grateful. Danielle (August 2010)

You presented your talk earlier this year at our kindergarten and it was agreed by all who attended that it was the  best discussion that we have had at the kindergarten. Personally after listening to you, I changed a number of my  purchasing and eating habits and am now much happier, healthier and 15 kilos lighter thanks to those amazing  green smoothies for breakfast instead of my normal cereal! Steve, Kindergarten Director (December 2011)Today my twins turn one, and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you Louise, for all of your support, advice  and wisdom over the last 18 months. You have made such a big difference in our lives and for our whole family’s health. What a blessing to have found you when we did. Amanda (February 2012)I wish to thank you most sincerely for speaking today at the LGMA Women’s Network. You are an inspiration to all. They call footballers legends – I don’t think they know what alegendary person is. You are a legend and you rock! I  have had feedback from some attendees today who have not realised that what they sell in the shops is making the human race sick. Because it is in the shops it must be good they say. Thank you so so much. I will always keep  you  in mind should someone need assistance with their health or to speak inrelation to health. Yvonne Dalwood,  Exec Assistant to the Mayor, City of Charles Sturt (June 2012)

Louise gave a talk for my group ‘The Goddess Within’.’ We had around 40 women there and most of the night all I  could hear was “oh” and “no!” She was incredibly clear, concise, filled with amazing information and facts that  every person on this planet needs to know about. If we are ever going to change what is happening with our  children’s health, and ours we HAVE to start listening and who better to listen to than Louise Macartney.  Diane McCann, Director, Beyond the Ordinary (July 2012)Ms. Louise Macartney was the guest speaker at a General Meeting of the Natural Health Society (S.A) Tuesday 5th  February 2013. Louise spoke to the Society on the topic: 21st Century Health Issues – Addressing the Cause, not  the Symptoms. She gave a well structured, engaging and information packed presentation which brought together  aspects of nutrition and toxicity, a range of interesting and disturbing statistics relating to health, theimportance of  eating seasonal food, and key facts about our Gastro Intestinal Tract. The address concluded with a number of  useful tips for attaining and maintaining good health,  and it provoked a wide range of questions from an  enthusiastic audience. It was a pleasure to have such an interesting and inspiring speaker at the Society’s meeting. Mark Heard, President Natural Health Society, S.A. Inc. (February 2013)

Louise you have done it again. Your A-Z of Child Health Seminar today was amazing. Ihave picked up so many more things from hearing you again today –  and this time a focus on other people’s issues they are having with their children. I hope to pass on what I have  learned from you and for it to also be a constant reminder to me of why I am making these  changes in the lives of my family. Thank you so much I wish every mother and father could hear this presentation. It is truly life altering. Joanne B (March 2013)

I would just like to say thank you for coming over to Kangaroo Island. You were very inspiring and have really motivated me to get healthy.  I actually felt like i have gotten more answers from you then all the specialist i have been to in the past 6 years. I have slowly started cutting out sugar, dairy and gluten and have actually noticed a difference already with my energy levels. Annemarie (August 2014)

I was totally blown away after our “one on one” session and your presentation at the Parndana Hotel. Inspiring to say the least. You touched and elaborated on a few things that I knew a little about, then introduced a whole new world to me. Ness (August 2014)

Louise Macartney was an energetic speaker who conveyed her message well to our Bowen Therapists. We have had some great feedback on her presentation and she gave members  information that they could take straight back  to their clinics and use the next day withclients. Her relaxed nature and delivery of information resulted in an easy    to follow demonstration of some of the pitfalls of a modern lifestyle. I would highly recommend her  presentation to any group interested in health and wellbeing. Deb Hart BTFA CPE  Coordinator (July 2014)

I started my health journey 3 years ago, I had suffered with so many different symptoms over the years. One day a Mum from school gave me a flier to a seminar on the connection between the gut and the brain. WOW WOW WOW! I spoke with Louise after – I think I was pale and shaky lol, because literally all my questions had been answered! To cut a long story short I changed my diet, and slowly created a ‘clean’ home. Over the next 3-6 months ALL my symptoms went away, I lost 20kg, I feel great, my kids feel great, my husband feels great. 3 years later and we haven’t looked back. Kara (May 2015)

I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (and there has been talk of Fibromyalgia) for over 20 years and until I heard Louise speak a couple of years ago I believed that until they found a cure I would have it for the rest of my life and all I could do is manage symptoms and be as healthy as I could be. What I didn’t know until 2 years ago was that I had to power to change my own health. It was in my hands, all I had to do was to give it the right conditions. I now consider myself to be almost recovered from CFS and yesterday chose not to declare it as a disability on an employment form (as it is no longer that for me) – and truly believe that I will achieve 100% recovery. Tracy (June 2016)

Louise’s presentation at our February Bowen Therapy CPE Training Day provided a solid evidence base as to why all of us need to take personal responsibility for addressing the underlying causes of our dis-ease. Sharing her personal journey about ‘creating a better way’ to being healthy, Louise’s presentation was based on research and current thinking from contemporary science on causes of disease (including epigenetics and the gut health connection).  More importantly, the presentation offered valuable insights into harm causing agents and ways we can restore or maintain our body’s natural balance when this has been challenged by factors now so common in our modern lives – inflammation, stress, poor diets, toxins, lack of sleep, nutrient deficiencies, trauma, lack of exercise.   As a nutrition health coach Louise provides inspiring and motivational background information that is coupled with practical enabling strategies aimed at influencing her audience to both think differently about the causes of disease and then take responsibility for action to ‘get to a place of balance’ with their own health.’ Presentation at Bowen Therapist’s Federation of Australia SA CPE Training Day, Barbara Beacham Bowen Therapist (February 2018)

I thoroughly enjoyed this talk, Louise has such a passion for health & has done so much of her own research so her talk is very evidence-based. I would highly recommend! Kay Davin, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, Ireland (April 2018)

Louise you are the reason I’m still breast feeding my little man today, your support and encouragement got me through a very stressful time, you then continued to help us on our health journey. You are always such a strong and positive influence. Recommended highly by my Sister in law, I am thankful I made that call that day, my life changed for the better. Anna (September 2018)

Some of the best advice given to me was by Health Coach Louise Macartney – an amazing one at that! I had a health coaching session with her all the way from Australia via Skype. I took her advice and the difference I’ve noticed has been astounding! I now understand that it was the process of eating a high plant based, organic, phytonutrient rich diet that gave my body what it needed to heal itself! Suzanne D’Arcy, Health Coach , Ireland (Jan 2019)

Bhakti – The Yoga of Love and Devotion,Napier, New Zealand

Bhakti – The Yoga of Love and Devotion


Bhakti Yoga is the path of devotion and love. The juicy and joyous celebration of the heart and our capacity to connect through love with others and ourselves.
Bhakti yoga has been called “love for love’s sake” and “union through love and devotion.” Bhakti yoga, like any other form of yoga, is a path to self-realization, to having an experience of oneness with everything.

Bhakti yoga incorporates many different practices such as Kirtan, singing devotional chants, dance – as in the sufi whirling or Indian classical dance, poetry, mudras… anything that takes us closer to the juicy, sweet feeling of being Alive and embodying the Divine.

Join this workshop to learn more about
– Devotion outside of any religious background
– Self-Love and Unconditional love
– Meaning and significance of Hindu chants and mantras + learning few basics
– Expression out of love – dance and singing
